I ordered 3 Bibimbab meals for carry out. I was worried that we would miss out on the crispy rice that makes the dish so good, but they crisped it up before they packaged it! They fried the egg hard at our request too. The red paste and side dishes came, too, so we really didn't miss out on any... More

I am personally not fond of the offerings (I've dined here twice), but I give it above average for the traditional Korean seating and terrific service. The food is fresh, the saki is good.

Cool decor, nice, knowledgable server. Will... More

This food was so good. I've never heard of this place but a friend I was with wanted to go. We all got a rice meal in a bowl. Flavor was top notch. You get a lot of food for the money. Can't wait to go back!

We went wanting a Bim Bap bowl and asked for suggestions on an appetizer and went with the HAEMUL PAJUN and loved it.

I really enjoyed the food in this restaurant. Even though I have eaten in a lot of Korean restaurants, I have never had some of the dishes that they offer. Service excellent.

We went for lunch. We ordered the shrimp dolsot bibimbab and dak bulgogi. Both were very good. The kimchi, potatoes and mushrooms sides were delicious too. Good Service.
