The lady behind the counter was not pleasant very abrupt and not interested by the customers, someone said she was the supervisor....I ordered Bibimbap, she never asked... More

Clear noodles were very greasy / oily. Service could have been better. Tolerable, but failed to meet expectations. Good serving size. Dining in the food court can be a bit challenging with the homeless people panhandling and taking food scraps from tables.

Tried here with my wife because it was busy with a long line. Bad choice for us. Lots on your plate but bland and lacking in taste. Soggy noodles and a big disappointment. Based on our experience of this Sorabol we are not likely to go the Korean way again. I imagine that Korean food can be fantastic but we... More

Wasn't thrilled. Basic mall food. It's not bad if you are really craving Korean, but for the cost, you could do much better. Servers were nice.

This place is great for a quick bite while downtown. Located in the basement food court of the Westfield San Francisco Center, this place offers standard Korean fare at a reasonable price. Lines can get long during lunch and dinner, but the line moves pretty quickly. I really like how the food is freshly made and constantly being replenished. Worth... More

Located in the basement food court "The Emporium" in the Westfield San Francisco Center, this convenient and quick Korean restaurant is tasty. Lines usually at lunch and dinner, but they move quickly.

As typical of a Korean restaurant, they give you a variety of foods. Whe you choose a 2 entree option, they give you rice, noodles (chapchae), choice a 2 entrees (a wide variety of options- mostly Korean but some Chinese such as crispy chicken), veggies such as broccoli, and then finally kimchee. Especially for a food court restaurant, this is... More

I visit SF often for business near Moscone. Whenever I do, I always enjoy the BBQ chicken or squid at the Sorabol. Its a cheap dinner with good food. Sometimes they put a bit too much noodles as I'd rather have more veggies, but other than that its just tasty. I usually spend about $10-$12 there.

Neighbourhood Profile
SoMa
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighbourhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
