Standard Korean, nothing special, nothing terrible. If you are already in the area, it might serve you well for lots of choices with quick service and decent prices. However, there is no reason to travel here, especially by car since there is no parking without a lot of luck.

I stopped in for lunch while waiting for my car to be serviced on Commonwealth Avenue nearby and was the only non Korean in the place -- usually a good sign, and it was!

The bibimbap served in a real stone bowl at Buk Kyung II is one of my favorite foods. The atmosphere here is pretty great, with awesome soju and other stuff available too. Definitely recommended.

Stopped in to Buk Kyung for a quick Friday night dinner. Food was great but the service could have been better. Tables are packed tight. The food runner at first brought me the wrong meal and it took a few minutes to flag someone down to correct the order. Wouldn't let me swap the soup that came with my entree... More

The soups are my favorite. The menu is very different and has some great choices for those who are new to dabbling in Korean food. If you like Chinese and Thai food, definitely check out this spot.

The noodle was perfect....chewy and firm. The sauce was perfectly seasoned....not salty as some jajangmyun can be. Jambong was flavorful and spicy....good broth.
