Went for dinner just to try and it was a very pleasant surprise to discover it's the best Korean restaurant so far for me in town. Food quality, service, very clean and cozy. The fried dumplings is a must! Will definitely go back very soon!

I went here for a nice meal with good company but the stupid server wrecked my day. I am Korean but the server assumed I don't know any and spoke English to me while she spoke Korean to whom I came with. Assumptions hurt. I'm never coming back!

I went to Song Cook's restaurant for lunch, and was quite happy with my experience. This is not a typical restaurant, as it has little rooms instead of booths. The place is very Korean, even with a cooktop burner on the table. The service was prompt, and the staff courteous. I had the Al bop, which was served in a... More

Lots of Korean restaurants are matter-of-fact places with standard items and little enthusiasm. This place is different. The selection is much wide than any other place I've been to and every staff member is attentive and helpful. It was busy on a Saturday night so we had to wait. We ordered diverse items and every one was the real thing... More

It had to used to be my favourite authentic Korean restaurant. My first few experience there were really good. So I kept going back there. (Last time I went was around Christmas) This year, it went downhill. My favourite dishes taste very average. The pork broth isn't the same anymore. And I used to eat Naengmyeon (Korean buckwheat noodles) there... More

Just like anything else. It's the staff that makes the meal and ambience a great place to dine at. The service was so friendly that I wonder why not all restaurants are like that. Great people and food!! Keep it up.

Delicious! Great atmosphere! Friendly service! There's heated floor seating and regular seating. Staff is very helpful fwith newcomers, offering recommendation and teaching how to cut the kimchi etc. I recommend getting a reservation because there is often a wait. The reservations are always ready on time.

My wife who is Korean, and I, go here every time we are in Toronto. It's probably the most authentic Korean food you'll get outside of Korea. Good value, good portions and great service. All the dishes we had were very good. They don't do table-top bbq which is ok to me, I've yet to experience a good Korean table-top... More
