Having lived in Korea for 5 years, I needed a Korean food fix. The restaurant was busy but service was attentive. The lunch menu has several plate lunches all reasonably priced while the dinner menu doubles the price, basically. The kimchi pancake was nicely crisp and ample. Side dishes (banchan) were few and simple. Sadly, they've taped down their grills,... More

Food is fabulous. If you go with a group, try several dishes and share. I've eaten here several times. Every dish was very good. Wine list is not extensive but more than adequate and very reasonably priced.

After serving in Korea I can say that this is some of the best stateside Korean food I have had. The owners are incredible and take great pride in their food and service. Rumor is that the owner is retiring and selling so one can only hope it will maintain it's caliber for food and service.

Yesterday I took a coworker to lunch. We wanted good food, good service and a place we could easily carry on a conversation. IL Song is a regular stop for me but my coworker had never been. He is not easy to please but was blown away. We both had BBQ items off the lunch menu, truly one of the... More

The food is great and the owners are so nice! Love the seafood pancake - it's a must try. There are many traditional dishes and also some fusion ones to try. Convenient location and good parking. Private rooms available.

This is the first time we have been and it was excellent! The food was authentic and plentiful. We got yaki mundo, baby back ribs and chop chae. They also brought us various kimchi dishes to try. Everything was so good. The service was excellent and very friendly. We plan on coming back next time we're in town. I recommend... More

My husband is a regular at the restaurant. I go a few times a year. My favorite dish is the chef's special bulgogi. The meat is New York strip and marinated to perfection. Carrots are on the side. I grab the rice and mix the meat. This visit my husband had the kimchee pancake, which is fried kimchee that looks... More

I had the Steak Bulgogi on the Chef Selection page of the menu and loved it. It went for $19.95 I think. Wine is only $5 a glass and bottles start at $16 for Merlot so that was a plus for me. I like the fish appetizer and cucumbers but not a real fan of the hot spices. A also... More

Love this place! My partner and I both had the spicy Bulgogi and the Yaki Mandu. I love Korean food. The beef was tender and seasoned to perfection. The sides were good as well. Staff was friendly and service was good. The inside was nicely decorated. We will definitely be back for some more goodness! 🇰🇷🇰🇷🇰🇷

One of the things we do when we go to San Antonio is eat at a Korean restaurant. We chose this one because it was close to the mall. The interior design was nice. The waitstaff was friendly. With eight people in our group ordering there were some mistakes but everyone got their food. The food was very good. I... More
