The meal started with a small but good and hot bowl of Miso soup, then came 6 small side dishes which included my favorite - Cabbage Kimchi. I was looking to eat something a little different so I ordered the Squid Deob-Bab which came with rice and a great spicy sauce, I requested about 1/2 spicy and although it could... More

We enjoyed the chicken yakitori appetizer, very tasty. For entrees, my wife had chicken teriyaki and I had the beef bulgogi with potato noodles. Both were very flavorful. Chilled cinnamon tea at the end of our mealw was a nice touch. Would definitely recommend.

I went twice in mid-December as I hadn't been in a while and I needed a fix of hot, homemade food that was healthy and had some spiciness! I've been going for several years and have always enjoyed the food and the servers, both owners and employees, have always been very friendly. The authenticness of the food and the servers... More

We periodically find ourselves driving east on Route 2 around dinnertime, and because of scheduling we're usually somewhere around Fitchburg. We've tried a few things, some awful, some mediocre. This time, we decided to plan ahead, and to our surprise, we saw a pretty well-reviewed Korean restaurant called Arisu. OK, we'll try it. We arrive on a freezing cold night,... More

We stopped into Arisu for a early lunch (open at 11 am). Husband and I split the fried dumplings and the shrimp teriaki lunch box with assorted samplers. Delightful and delicious. We really enjoyed topping off our meal with the Korean cinnamon ginger ice tea! Settled the stomach and the palate. Korean TV channels on, so nice to sample Korean... More

From the outside I was a bit hesitant. It was nice to see Koreans running the restaurant who spoke Korean. I had bulgogi and it was satisfying. The side dishes were great and the ginger tea at the end was great to help digest the large meal I had.

We were on a long road trip and wanted some Korean food. We found this place on Yelp and gave it a try since it was close to our hotel. The complimentary side dishes were very well prepared and delicious. They give more sides than many restaurants in NY. Everything we order was excellent from the spicy tofu to the... More

We had eaten in Arisu a few times since our daughter and grandchildren lives nearby in Lunenburg and was very surprised how good. They served authentic Korean meals and the service was very attentive. The owners explained any dishes that we had questions on with patience. We recommend it if you happened to be in the area or driving through.

We had looked around for something different for dinner and came across Arisu. It was a plesant surprise. The server (owner?) was very nice and the food had a "home cooked" feel about it. The menu had a nice variety although several items were not available went we visited (including kalbi). Decor is plain but clean. Prices were reasonable.

My husband & I stopped in on Columbus Day. No lunch specials on that day but that was fine so we ordered from their dinner menu. My husband was delighted with the Bulgogi and I had the Galbi Korean B.B.Q. short ribs which are my favorites. With all the little side dishes they always serve, kimchi etc.plus the scrambled egg...
