Spent the day just driving around the cities. Found ourselves kind of hungry. We're going to go to Subway. But when we pulled into the lot we saw a sign for Hoban Korean restaurant. So we changed our plans very quickly. We each had the lunch buffet which was small but good. All the sides were brought to our table... More

We drive out of our way to get here and eat at least 1 time a year. The food is always great, but they need to focus a little extra effort on cleaning. Sat at booth and table was a little seperated from wall an there was so much rotting stuff in there I almost lost my appetite. Still best... More

This was our second visit to Hoban and we were not disappointed. Highly recommend the bulgogi - large serving of thin sliced, tender beef. Nice assortment of pickled veggies served with rice. Skip the calmari tempura, though. It has heavy batter. Friendly server who kept beverage glasses filled.

We didn't get seated right away even though the place was pretty emptied and employees were clearly present. No one greeted us to tell us it'll be a few minutes. We placed our order in and it came out pretty quickly. Only good dish from our order was the Kal Bi. Everything else was pretty blah including the side dishes... More

We enjoy Korean food and this seems authentic (says our friend who lived in Korea and understands the cuisine). We enjoyed the many dishes but especially the bulgogi and bibimbap. They serve rice and many other 'sides' including all varieties of kimchi. Even the teens loved the food, so that says a lot. Call ahead (esp on a weekend night)... More

Visited here a few times. Food is very good but staff always very friendly and polite, but the place seems under staffed. Staff tries to provide the best service they can. The biggest con is the place needs some cleaning. Walls need a good scrub and paint and carpet needs a deep cleaning.

If you have a craving for Korean this sure beats the 13 hour flight. We had a large group so many dishes were tried mandoo, spicy wings, pajun, bulgogi, kalbi, kimbap, chap chae and dolosot bibimbop. Everyone enjoyed their food. One negative was they ran out of Korean beer. After eating our group went to sing karaoke next door at... More

I ordered the mul mandoo and gop chang gui. Both were okay, but the service was pretty bad. It wasn't the fault of the servers. The owner just needs to understand that understaffing is a pretty quick way to ruin a diner's experience. It took 15 minutes to clear a table to I could be seated. It took another 15... More

Went here with my friends for lunch. Very fast service and very tasty food. Quiet and calming environment. Well worth a visit if you're in the area.
