Five of us were visiting Uwajimaya in the International District and decided to eat lunch in the food court. We ordered BiBimBap and shared it. Really tasty and terrific price! So good, there was plenty for everyone.

Sushi is not traditional and I personally had a questionable plate which a couple pieces had a fishy smell to it. The Korean food is great here though and I have not had a bad meal other than the sushi.

Shill's was just across the street from my hotel. Traveling alone and really tired, I wasn't in the mood to be adventuresome, so just a 200 foot walk brought me to Shilla's. The exterior and interior could use some updating. Service was OK, they weren't overly attentive, but it did seem a little long to wait after being seated for... More

We visited the location in the food court of Uwajimaya in the International District. Having lived in Korea for two years we miss finding and eating good Korean food. We don't have any near where we live. This is just one of the many vendors in the Food Court. However, the food was very authentic Korean and it was very... More

You can cook right on the table if you wish and it looked good. We did not do that. We ordered the hot stone bibimbap which was good its a rice mixture and gets crunchy on the bottom. We also ordered the premium bento box which was also good but a little over priced and not outstanding. The food was... More

I went here against the recommendation of a coworker. I don't know why he wouldn't love this place! The gentleman at the counter (I'm guessing he's the owner) was super friendly to everyone and recognized most of the customers and remembered their names. I ordered the bibimbap with the kalbi (ribs), which probably wasn't the greatest choice (bones), but the... More

We used to come to this restaurant because our favorite waitress worked here, and although she has since returned to Japan, we continue to enjoy the Korean BBQ (Bulgogi) cooked at your table. It is outstanding. I especially like the pork which is spicy and wonderful. Their kimchee is also fresh and spicy. Best of all, they have great sake... More

I visited the location in the food court of Uwajimaya in the International District. Bebimbap is Korean comfort food, and is vegetables, rice, and noodles with a fried egg on top, cooked in a stone bowl and stirred together with spicy sauce. The order-taker was very friendly, and told me how to eat the bebimbap so that I could enjoy... More

Went with friends and this is really good, but was also pretty $$. It was fun to cook your own food and good to gather with friends.

I really enjoyed this restaurant. I usually order Bulgogi when I go to Korean restaurants. This one lived up to my expectations. Our meals came with several interesting sides. I had to ask the server what they were but he was very forthcoming with information.
