Ordered the Braised Oxtail Stew, and did not regret it. The oxtail was tender and meaty, full of the braising liquid flavor. the banchan was plentiful, while delicious and fresh. Moreover, there is also a complementary spicy tofu soup which is flavorful and full of the soft tofu. Walked out of the restaurant with a full stomach and satisfying tongue!

From the staff to the food everything was amazing . We even watched 2 buses of Korean Tourist eating while we had our Korean BBQ that tells you a lot about how authentic and good the food is.

This restaurant is for real. Being Korean, it's hard for me to say whether non-Koreans would like it. But for those who are into truly authentic Korean food, this place is it. I had the kimchi dolsot bab, and hubby had kalkooksoo. The BEST kalkooksoo - handcut noodles that are better than some I've tried in Korea. And all the... More

A group of five went and we all agreed that this was the most authentic Korean dining experience we have yet had in the US. The only signs that we were not in Korea was the wooden chopsticks and no buzzer to call the waitstaff. The other patrons were predominately Korean and we heard Korean language being spoken all around... More

Showed up around 6:30p on a Thursday (FYI they're closed Wed). We watched 3 tour buses of Koreans eating and leaving within our time visiting. I think that says something about the place. We were seated about 20 min later and got a feast. If you're wanting traditional Korean, go here.

We got 4 meats to grill for 5 and left with extra; that's no small feat for us as we are big eaters. They left us alone for the most part to grill for ourselves and I like that autonomy. I hate it when they bust in and cook for you. Takes away from the fun of it. The ban... More

We came upon the recommendation of local friends - if you want authentic Korean dishes - we highly recommend this place in the Richmond District. A few things for any to know: A. If you're coming in with a big group - call ahead to reserve. They get packed and busy esp over the weekend. Tour buses bring in Korean... More

In the heart of the Richmond district residential district. I have lived nearby for 50 years and just recently went there. They have Korean tour buses there all the time and the place is always crowded. I went there with a group of friends (12) and had a good time. I made reservations for 630pm but was told there was...

I've been coming here for years when the original owner was running the place. They've recently updated s few things at the restaurant but it's as busy as ever. Food is good, service is very fast and efficient. Just don't come when the Korean tour buses come for them to eat and run. I read it's starts 4-5:30pm. So far... More
