We go to Dabin in Lexington Center quite often for the delicious food and the charming decor. Dabin has two or three private areas that we always reserve for the family when we go there. One leaves one's shoes outside the little area, sit at a low table with our feet under the table, and have a Japanese experience unlike... More

We come to this place once in a while. Tonight was our last time. When the bill was brought I put a card and 20 bux bill for tips. In a minute waitress returned with a question: what is the 20-bill there for? I describe my idea expecting appreciation that I thought of the place in advance and took some... More

Not clean. A few years ago, we looked in the little containers that held the soy sauce on the tabels- dead flies INSIDE. GROSS. There are too many GOOD places to go, to waste time coming back. The atmosphere in here may fool you, but cleanliness counts. Do NOT go here.

We have been coming here for years. It's one of our go-to spots in town. The sushi is super fresh and delicious. The noodle dishes are yummy and loaded with vegetables, meat and/or fish. My family is particularly drawn to the Korean food. I don't know of another place that offers it, and can't imagine one that does it better.

The Korean food is really ok but slightly anericanized in taste. It seems that the adjusted to non-korean customers and don't dare to offer them authentic Korean food. But still. .. It is the only Korean restaurant in town and the food is really ok. The service. .. not sure why they don't try a little more. They don't really... More

Dabin offers excellent Korean cuisine, especially the barbeque. The atmosphere is relaxed and quiet enough that you can actually have a conversation with your table mate.

This is my husband's favorite restaurant. We always go there when we want to eat out in Lexington. They are a little expensive, but the food is always excellent. My friend is a vegetarian. We had lunch the other day and ordered all sushi. She said it was the best sushi she'd had in a long time. After a month's... More

The Dabin Restaurant offers very good food at reasonable prices. The place already exists already many years in Lexington and parking is no problem. An added advantage is that it offers a quiet environment to meet your friends.

Have been coming here for 15+ years for family dinners, business lunches, and meeting up with friends. Always left phenomenally pleased that Lexington had this treasure. It's a draw for children - exotic, delicious food, in interesting settings like a large group on tatami mats in one of their private rooms. Always loved the personal service. What a pleasure to...
