Took the family here for dinner as we love Korean food and especially Korean BBQ at the table. Unfortunately the table grills are not charcoal but electric and the portions of the meat are quite small for the price. We ordered the Bulgogi and the Kalbi which together cost well over $40 (closer to $50) and it was not enough... More

We visited as part of a large group on valentines. There was a set menu, including soup, pancakes, veggie sides, pork and beef main dishes. There was plenty of food and a nice variety of tastes. The service was great after a little mix up with the wine order. How ever they were able to split the check by seat... More

We had great service and a wonderful dinner on a cold night during our convention. It is a block and a half close which was great in the rain. Meal was delicious.

I ordered 3 Bibimbab meals for carry out. I was worried that we would miss out on the crispy rice that makes the dish so good, but they crisped it up before they packaged it! They fried the egg hard at our request too. The red paste and side dishes came, too, so we really didn't miss out on any... More

The name of this place says it all. A Korean Bistro!! The first time I was here, I couldn't bring myself to put a review together because I didn't know the names of the dishes. This time I saved my receipt. I'm not fluent in Korean cuisine. I brought customers here for lunch. We all ordered the specials. I had... More

I am personally not fond of the offerings (I've dined here twice), but I give it above average for the traditional Korean seating and terrific service. The food is fresh, the saki is good.

Met friends for lunch on a weekday. They both had meals served in a HOT bowl and loved the food. I had a lunch plate with several items including dumplings and strips of marinated beef and veg in rice. Excellent. Not too different from my favorite Chinese foods. Yummy house sauce on the side. Cool decor, nice, knowledgable server. Will... More

This food was so good. I've never heard of this place but a friend I was with wanted to go. We all got a rice meal in a bowl. Flavor was top notch. You get a lot of food for the money. Can't wait to go back!

We went wanting a Bim Bap bowl and asked for suggestions on an appetizer and went with the HAEMUL PAJUN and loved it.
