They only got up to a 2 was because the fried dumplings were good. My plate was just ok and my wife's was Burnt. I pointed that out and asked for the check. She didn't check our table until then. My wife only took 2 small bites of her dish. They didn't offer to redo it, get her something else... More

I LOVE their Kalbi-tang soup! However, I only go there once every couple years because the service is SO BAD. The lady who works as the server/waitress there clangs and throws dishes around when she's cleaning tables, and taking care of dishes. She clangs and slams the dishes so loudly that you can't have a decent conversation at dinner without... More

We loved it here! The staff was excellent, especially our waitress! This is our second time here. We've tried the chicken, pork and beef bolgogi tender and tasty. The seafood soup, hot and spicy also gigantic! Also the Chinese dinner are excellent. They served us 8 little dishes of appetizers and soup before our meals that were so tasty. I'd... More

We love the selection of Kimchis we get with our lunch. The spicy shrimp and vegetables and the barbecue pork are our favorite lunch specials

I enjoy the Bibimbop. The rice on the bottom of the hot pot is at the same time crunchy, chewy, and sweet. The seafood within the dish is cooked perfectly...the tiny octopus tentacles are really the best. The kimchee that comes with all meals is varied and replenished upon request. A whole in the wall that may be hard to... More

I was initially put off by my first contact with the staff, but I warmed up the whole experience after the food arrived. I was neutral about the atmosphere, pleasant enough but nothing remarkable. I ordered Yakimandu (dumplings) and Dwaeji Bolgogi (spicy pork). Both where very nicely prepared, the pork was spiced appropriately for a spicy Korean dish and very... More

Note: I have only had Korean food one other time, so I am not an expert by any means. That said, my husband and I were both disappointed with our recent dinner at VIP. We had heard good things about it and were looking forward to trying something new, but VIP just did not live up to our expectations. The... More

The food here was just average, nothing really special about it. The one person working the floor- busing, serving, cashiering- is clearly to busy. She didn't smile once, had to ask several times for a refill of my water, and didn't check back to see if the food was okay or not. Atmosphere is so off-putting, can't imagine going back.

This is our "special" go to place when craving Korean food. The side dishes are plentiful and very tasty. I order the bbq chicken (always), and husband orders the spicy shrimp dish (always). We have tried other dishes but the others do not compare to what I mentioned above. Although it looks like a tiny place from the outside, it's... More
