We had never had Korean before. This was fabulous, tasty food. You have your own grill to BBQ your meat and add various side dishes to personalise your flavours. Family run and authentic. We ate her two nights in a row it was that good!

You can seat at the table with your own BBQ grill and you're employed as a cook. At the same time the cook is off, because he is unnecessary. That is your problem how you prepare your food, and the tip should be for you.

Food was really delicious and service was primo for us. Mom and son very attentive. Sunday night. Each dish had its own flavor. We had Squid, Chicken, octopus and Mackerel.

Hidden gem! Was a little apprehensive when we arrived, we were the only patrons at 6:30p. But what a surprise! Customers, mostly Korean, started to arrive. The food was absolutely delicious! We ordered Kalbi BBQ and the hot coal pot really adds to the flavors!...More

We are visiting family in Chicago and wanted my family to experience the flavors of Korean food. This place surpassed my expectations. It had all the real spices and taste of authentic Korean food.

The restaurant's decor is a bit nicer than a hole in the wall place. We were there around 6:30 on Saturday evening. The service is good and friendly. The menu does not have much English explanation on the dishes, which could be a bit challenge...More

Although this place looks far from impressive from the outside, and the interior could use some work as well, you will be hard pressed to find better Korean at such great prices in this area. They offer great Korean BBQ along with other traditional Korean...More
