Chaes used to be the best and among the busiest restaurants in Vermillion, perhaps 5 years ago or so. Although I've been there numerous times, I hadn't visited in a couple years. Our latest visit was incredibly disappointing. We arrived at 7pm on a Friday...More

We ate here just hours before they closed the restaurant for remodeling. In fact, the waitress was dismantling the tables as we finished our meal. The food was good - will definitely go back if we can.

I must say I was pleasantly surprised. They have really good food, and great service. It is located on main street, and there is always parking available.

This is the restaurant I go to most often here in Vermillion. It's always been great. I haven't tried the Korean dishes, but the Chinese food is fine. I've never been disappointed. The wait-staff are particularly friendly and helpful.

Been too long since we were here to give a fair accounting. Food was great way back when but we've just not been back
