Our grandson came in for a visit with his parents from Connecticut and was hungry for Korean food. He's a 3rd generation 25% Korean. Not too far from the airport was this 4.5 /5 stared Korean Restaurant from NYC. Other than his mom, no one...More

Been here many times in the past, like the taste of their food items; and their unique way to prepare tofu, or the Korean way of eating tofu. The place is always packed every time we went there. However, their numbering wait system is adequate,...More

Tried this for something New and we were not disappointed. The service was fast and the food was good. Some things were a little too spicy for my taste. You definitely do not leave hungry. Worth the trip.

We visited as family lunch and it was so delicious. If you like tofu or other popular korean dishes such as bulgogi, mandu, pajun, bibimbab, and etc, it is one of best resturants. Great foods and service. I am going back soon.

This is a busy place, apparently one of a small chain. The kimchee plates come out quickly, and so do the mains (beef bulgogi and chicken galbi in our case). The dishes were quite mild in general, you have to ask for spicy, I guess....More
