Not the greatest atmosphere but the food is authentic and very good. Never been to an authentic Korean restaurant before so we were a bit lost with how to order and what the meals really came with but everything we ordered turned out to be very good. Next trip we will have a better idea on how to go about... More

Went here with a group of friends to celebrate a work mate moving on. The food was excellent especially the Bul go gi and Man do. For most in our group this was their first time trying Korean food and they all loved the food. We will be coming back again either as a group or individually

Having gone to many korean restaurants around North America, I'd say they could improove the quality of their side dishes, but the overall main dishes are very good We opted for one of their special combo menus that consisted 2 soups and a choice f fish or meat. I ordered Yukgaejang soup (for those who may enjoy Spicy beef and... More

my guy loves Korean and introduced me to the Mirror of Korean restaurant. I have never had Korean before and only thought of Kimchi when thinking of Korean food so I was skeptical. I have to say I was PLEASANTLY surprised and I now love going there. There is so much more than Kimchi. I love the little spice of... More

Food was exceptional for a North American Korean restaurant. Very authentic. Kimchi jigae was served boiling hot as it should. Gimbap, Mandu and Pajeon were all very well prepared and served. All flavours and textures were exactly how I remembered them in Korea. Atmosphere is simple with tables and booths with a very light Korean touch. There was Kpop playing... More

We ordered Manduu dumplings and kimbap rice rolls for starters and 2 soup casseroles for our mains. All were tasty and authentic (spent 5 years in Seoul). The 8 banchan side dishes were excellent -- fresh and flavorful. Good liquor selection but didn't see any Korean beers or soju so 4 stars. Friendly, speedy service.

I really enjoy the little side dishes that many Korean restaurants provide with a meal. The spicy stir fried chicken and vegetables I had as an entree were only mildly spiced with a nice red chili sauce. The vegetables were fresh and still a little crunchy. The 8 side dishes were really good but small enough so I did not... More

Having travelled all over the world and experienced many amazing meals abroad. It was nice to find authentic Korean fare here in the Twin Cities. My partner and I stopped in the other night as we were craving some good Korean food. We love this place. The service is always on top of their game and the food is phenomenal.... More

Three of us went for a business lunch. We tried a number of things, each of which was very good. First was Kim Bop, very similar to sushi in Japanese restaurants. Next, Do Det Bim Bim Bop- variety of vegetables with rice, and an egg mixed in. It was GREAT! Also had Tong Su Yuk, essentially sweet and sour chicken... More

The food was good and spicy!!! It was much a better experience this time. I really enjoy the food, but the dining was too cold. I was freezing. Lol but honestly, their food has gotten better since 2009. I would come back again.
