Stopped by after work when I was in the area. I almost missed it from the outside. Go all the way to the back to the little cafe. Very easy to read menu on display and what each comes with. I tried the beef short ribs and it came with some sides including kimchi. I liked it enough that I... More

The restaurant is a surprise find for 2 reasons: it's located in the back of an oriental grocery store, and it's very, very good. A good test of whether an ethnic restaurant in the heart of Scandahooooovia country is any good is if there are ethnics eating the food. Yes, there were lots of Asians (many of whom I presume...

Didn't expect to find such good Korean food inside of this supermarket, beef ribs, seafood tofu soup are the best!

I came here on a Saturday with my sister. I read some reviews that they were very busy on Saturdays, but luckily for us when we came (around 4pm) it wasn't too busy. Though pretty small, there were still plenty of seats left. We ordered our food, which didn't take long at all for. I enjoyed my food and was... More

Found this place after going to hardware store next door. Tucked in back of grocery store. Only a handful of tables and were very busy on Saturday afternoon. Tried spicy pork(wow...way too over the top spicy for me), dumplings and sushi roll. Next time would try short ribs, that seemed to be a popular choice of the diners sitting inside.

Everyone elaborates that the food is bomb!! Went and tried almost every bit of the food all is okay!!! Not the best and it's all self service. Totally not a family oriented place because they don't even have plates for you just tiny bowls! Spendy place for less!!

This appears to be a family based restaurant/grocery store. They make their own kimchi here and sell them in large jars. The best store bought kimchi I've tasted here. The restaurant food was fair to good as well. Overall worth trying at least once.

While this is an Asian grocery store, in the back they have a "deli" that serves hot food. It is not a fancy place, but the food is worth the trip. They have a good variety of dishes that were ALL very good. If you like Korean/Asian food, you will not be disappointed.

I had the hot stone bowl bibimbap (rice with beef and vegetables;pickled side dishes). It was very tasty - the rice was nicely carmelized at the bottom of the sizzling hot bowl and the sides were tasty. I didn't feel the best afterward though - had forgotten to ask them to hold the MSG. Atmosphere: well used serve-yourself sit down... More
