I love this place. The food and service is wonderful. I also love the fact that there are no televisions. I am so tired of TV noise in the background when I'm visiting with my dinner partners. So this place is refreshing.

Even if you love onions you will NOT like the dishes here. They are over loaded with ONIONS !! It was in the past a great place to eat. We will not be back.

Food has been up and down over the decades it's been in business. But my recent visit was great. I had ginger and garlic dish that was great. Could taste the fresh ginger. Granted it may not be your thing, but they use good ingredients...More

I have been coming here since I was a child. One can always count on great food. The shrimp with green peas has always been my favorite. Try an authentic dish from the Korean menu. You won't be disappointed.
