We were looking for a restaurant that prepared and served xiao long bao in Los Angeles and Myung Dong Kyoja comes close. Not exactly an XLB but Angelenos will not have to drive out to Arcadia or San Gabriel to get a fix. My wife...More

Excellent dumplings!! Simple place and their staff need a lot of training for happier and kinder service manners. They looked too stressed and wasn't too friendly. I would have given 5 stars if their service was decent. But the food was great! Simple two types...More

One of my favorite places in K-town. Great noodles and dumplings. I love Kalgooksoo and shrimp dumpling. Great comfort food :D Service is quick and nice. Parking is good too. The only issue that I have is that the price has been increasing a lot...More

The pork and shrimp dumplings are the best. Kal Gook Soo Korean style noodles here is with meat, vegetables and the broth is pretty amazing. I also recommend their wantons as an appetizer. They are both full of flavor. The service is good and quick.

This inelegant venue spills over with authenticity, or at least the fact that I was the only person not of Korean heritage in the entire, fluorescent-bathed dining hall made it seem so. The simple bowl of flavorful broth with clear noodles and vegetables really satisfies...More

This place serves delicious pork dumplings and other authentic Korean eats! Highly recommend the steam pork dumplings, the chicken noodle soup (minced chicken on top of noodle in a thick broth), and Korean mixed rice ("bimbimbo" - I may have spelled it wrong) in a...More

This place has some of the best mandoo (dumplings) in Koreatown, and some of the best kkalguksu (칼국수) around. The inside is pretty spacious and bright which is not always the case for Korean places. The prices are not cheap but reasonable for the quality...More

Met friends who've never had Korean food here for lunch yesterday. It was busy so we took a number at the back and waited for a table (about 10 minutes). Felt like we were in Seoul-only Koreans as far as the eye could see! Loved...More

If you are a vegan I highly recommend Sanchae Bibimbob - it was terrific. The place was packed with Korean guests, luckily they have much better table manners than chinese ( no offense meant, but....). Service was english speaking and we received as much attention...More
