We have been coming here for years. It's one of our go-to spots in town. The sushi is super fresh and delicious. The noodle dishes are yummy and loaded with vegetables, meat and/or fish. My family is particularly drawn to the Korean food. I don't know of another place that offers it, and can't imagine one that does it better.

Dabin offers excellent Korean cuisine, especially the barbeque. The atmosphere is relaxed and quiet enough that you can actually have a conversation with your table mate.

This is my husband's favorite restaurant. We always go there when we want to eat out in Lexington. They are a little expensive, but the food is always excellent. My friend is a vegetarian. We had lunch the other day and ordered all sushi. She said it was the best sushi she'd had in a long time. After a month's... More

The Dabin Restaurant offers very good food at reasonable prices. The place already exists already many years in Lexington and parking is no problem. An added advantage is that it offers a quiet environment to meet your friends.

Have been coming here for 15+ years for family dinners, business lunches, and meeting up with friends. Always left phenomenally pleased that Lexington had this treasure. It's a draw for children - exotic, delicious food, in interesting settings like a large group on tatami mats in one of their private rooms. Always loved the personal service. What a pleasure to...

The restaurant is pleasant. And we enjoyed the food. We had several starters and different main courses. My three mushroom dish was very good. I felt that the waitress, though polite, was impatient with us for not knowing quite what we wanted to order. Friendly service is important to me in order to feel welcome and it was not forthcoming... More

I have frequented Dabin several times and have always been satisfied with service and food, however last night was a different experience. A very unpleasant odor greeted us which should have been a sign. The service was horrible. Out waitress was rude, as was the hostess and workers glaring at us as they walked by. They seemed like they were... More

Many visits there in the last year. Service is attentive and the decor is modern. In the heart of Lexington , this is a good Japanese / Korean restaurant. The Korean pancakes and kimchi are above average and I must say there Dotsot Bibimbap is right on the money. Definetly a good value and a fun relaxing eatery.
