This restaurant is definitely one of the nicer restaurants with upscale interiors and friendly service. But the quality of the food isn't that great. We ordered kalbi and we're used to seeing 20+ ban chan's (e.g. San Soo Gab San). Here there were just 7 (or 8 if you include the lettuce). Meat was bit on the tough side too.... More

This restaurant was my first experience in Korean food. Pretty different from all the other Asian food styles that I know and most of them like very much. However, I liked it a lot and would rank it straight under my top-5 favorite asian cuisines. As a newbie I felt a bit lost with the menu, so my friend ordered... More

We make it here a few times a year to eat. We love the Korean BBQ and grilling right at the table. The service has always been great, some servers are much more attentive than others but I've never had a reason to complain. I can't speak for much of the menu as the only thing we go for is... More

I was taken to this restaurant by my business colleagues from Seoul. If a Korean is recommending a Korean restaurant in the USA, then it must be good. They didn't disappoint! Bulgogi was very tasty. Kimchi was great. We also got to try the “cold soup”. I was told this was a traditional N. Korean dish. Staff was very attentive... More

Upon entering I took in the very nice inviting atmosphere, and then quickly looked around to notice that every patron was either Korean, or Korean American. I knew then, that I would at the very least be eating authentic Korean food. Though neither of my waitresses had a strong command of the English language, they were extremely helpful, and helped...

My boyfriend and I love Asian cuisine and we've been on a hunt for a good Korean BBQ for a while. While some Korean restaurants lack in service (some servers in restaurants speak no English so you are on your own, which can be a fun discovery process if you are adventurous enough) some places offer only a couple side...

Atmosphere is elegant, service is attentive and courteous, the appetizers are great, and the Bar B Que is even better. My favorite is the pancake-like one with "negi". The sauce that accompanies this appetizer is "boss sauce." They have some of the best-marbled beef I have ever seen. The prices are reasonable when one considers the amount of beef in... More

I visited this restaurant as the guest of some Korean business associates. I was lucky to have them select my lunch. I truly enjoy Korean food but have had difficulty locating a good Korean restaurant in the Chicago suburbs. This food was fantastic! We had a large group yet the service was quick - perfect for lunch. I look forward... More
