It's been a few times that I passed in front of this restaurant and wanted to try it. Finally a Korean restaurant which doesn't promote itself as a Korean barbecue restaurant.... First of all the lady serving us was really friendly and took us time to explain everything very well. She also informed us that they prepare all the noodles... More

I had been in Europe for 10 days now and was really craving Korean food. There was only 1 table with a Korean in the restaurant so I was a bit weary. Also, I noticed that everyone had dolsot bibimbap (stone pot rice) and thought that was sort of peculiar, but I didn't want that at the moment. I wanted... More

I have been to Son Nim a few times, and have always had great food. It is always fresh, and usually still sizzling away on a table grill or hot plate when it comes to the table. Multiple accompaniments are also always provided. I cannot comment on the authenticity of the food having never been to Korea, but there is... More

Me and my boyfriend lives close to this restaurant so last weekend we visited this place. We ordered Bulgogi (pork and beef) and beer. Very often Korean restaurants have 'barbecue' in the table, in this restaurant they will give your small gas barbecue. There were many side dishes but napa cabbage kimchi was overdone (i used to do my our... More
