“Great food, outrageous drink prices!”

I would give this restaurant an excellent if it weren't for the outrageous drink prices. The food is excellent, but when the tab came I found out mixed drinks were all $12 each. These were just basic gin and vodka martinis and whiskeys on the rocks. Seven drinks for a party of four cost $84 + tax! These prices are way out of line for Owensboro. The Korean dishes and sushi were superb and reasonably priced. I advise getting a price quote before ordering any alcoholic beverage, as there is no drink menu.

Our family dined here twice in the past few months. I wish I could recommend Gangnam, sadly no. There are no table top grills, you order from a menu. The bibimbap stone pot was only warm.. not sizzling hot to give the rice the good crunchiness. They put raw lettuce and raw carrot strips on top. The spicy ramyun soup had no depth of flavor. The dae ji katsu was dry, and came on a plate with no rice , and a postage stamp side of sauce. I give 2 stars because the banchan were not bad, and our service was wonderful both times. If you are looking for authentic Korean, sadly this is not the place.

The food and overall experience was great. The server was very attentive and knowledgeable. I ordered the spicy pork bulgoki and it was spot on. The manager even came out and spoke to every table. I will be back.

Will start by saying the service and food was good. However, if you are accustom to "real" Korean food this might fall short. The seasoning was not quite right. Bulgogi was sweet. The Kimbop was right on the mark. The rice was dried out. Wish I could recommend.

This is an excellent restaurant! There are lots of vegetarian/vegan options, and they are able to customize dishes to accommodate food allergies. They staff is friendly, and they're also very good at describing dishes and how they're eaten. So far we've tried the Korean pancakes, Gangnam tofu, vegetarian bibimbap rice bowl, and fried ice cream. All are delicious!
