When I read that this was a Korean-Cajun restaurant, I was a tad perplexed but opted to try it with a friend of mine. We both had heard from coworkers that it was a great restaurant and we were not disappointed. My friend made reservations but at 5p on a Thursday night we were the first people there. We sat...

It's not easy to get a reservation for Saturday evening. You will have to reserve the week before otherwise you are stuck with dinner at 5pm or 9pm. Why is that? Because it's quite popular. Consistently. We too came back, simply because it's original cuisine, that you don't easily find in the suburbs. So, what's the drawback. We entered for... More

Had the Cajun cassoulet, bison dumplings and shrimp and grits - everything was absolutely delicious, but definitely pricey! Be prepared to spend a decent amount. The staff and manager were all very nice/engaged and attentive.

This is a very unique restaurant with very delicious food. It's all in the details and everything is so flavorful. And the staff is great and very attentive. If you are adventures and like an interesting combination of asian/creolan food ... this is the place to be.

The combination of unusual menu, wide variety of beers that I had never heard of before and very tasty food makes for a very enjoyable dining experience. My wife and I have been several times. It is worth making a reservation due to its popularity. Don't be fooled by the strip mall location or the fairly basic decor. This is... More

We came for New Years Eve dinner and it is amazing!! As many of the other reviews say, it's Korean and Cajun although not mixed. It is mostly tapas-like, although they do have a few larger plates available. There were 4 of us and we stayed with tapas primarily, although my son and husband both ordered a medium plate. We...
