This is a small family run business whose father died and his family carries on. I come here for one dish. Though I had a couple of other dishes her, including the ramen noodles, the Biben Bap, hot or cold, is full of flavor. The secret is the meat and the rice. Besides the rich hot sauce paste, there is... More

This restaurant is a very small hidden gem in downtown Mineola. This is our go to spot for BaBimbap in the area. For those who don't know what BaBimbap is, they take a stone pot and heat it up. They then put meat, egg and vegetables in the pot and they cook in the pot. It's brought to the table... More

From the name Jane Cafe & Restaurant, you won't think that the place is a Korean Restaurant. Don't know why they are so low keyed about advertising that they are a Korean restaurant because their food is oh so delish. Of course you can get the usual billgogi, bibimpab dishes and Kalbi(the best their is). The service is warm and... More

We had a great meal here and will be back - everything was delicious, the waiter [owner's son I believe] was pleasant and answered our questions and didn't mind chatting. Definitely small - not a lot of tables - be aware particularly if you have a large group

When I needed a new place for Babimbap after my favorite restaurant closed, we tried Jane Cafe. As we approached, we were hesitant as the Cafe has very little curb appeal. Once inside, the restaurant is small, with perhaps 6-7 tables and one waiter. Appearance can be deceiving though, as the food was excellent! The Dolsot Babimbap came out hot... More

Highly addictive. Always empty which is the way I like it, but I struggle to see why. Service can be a bit "in your face" depending on waiter but the food is worth it. I highly recommend the dol sot bibimbap. And one of the best spicy tuna rolls I've ever consumed. All the sushi is very well made. And... More

Went for lunch with a friend. Had to wait a few minutes but it was well worth it. I had the Korean BBQ-Galbi and it was out of this world. Friend had the Dolsot Bi Bim Bab and they also loved it. There was only 1 waiter but he moved very fast. Will return again for sure !!!!

I wasnt sure what it was gonna be like when I pulled in front if the restaurant but once the food came out, well it went up in my book. The food was delicious. My friend and I had steamed beef dumplings and I had bimimbab in the stone bowl. It was great, as good as any I had in... More

Such a nice little spot right near the Mineola train station. We had a wonderful dinner here last night. The dumplings were delicious and seemed to have been freshly made on the spot not reheated. My son and I both had the bibimbap served in a hot pot that was still sizzling half way through the meal - a combination... More

I had never eaten Korean food before going to this restaurant. I went there because of the reviews. I ordered vegetable dumplings which were iced frozen in the middle. I didnt like the taste of them and asked If I could have something else but they said I would have to pay for it as well. I ordered their specialty... More
