    The food are just very good. The environment is nice and the service is friendly. Good twist to authentic Korean place.

    Chambination plates are filling, but they don't make you sluggish. And the little buns are to die for. Definitely coming back again.

    Great place for lunch. Their California bibimbap is light and super yummy (: if you want sth more filling, go for the sizzling bibimbap!

    FAIL... Only 1 sever, 1 busboy and 1 chef for a full restaurant. Would've been a long wait.

    Some of the best Korean in Pasadena. Definitely worth a look-see. I had the cold bibim noodles - hearty and delicious.

    The food here is fresh and insanely flavorful. Get any of the garden platters or the bi bim bap in the sizzling cast iron skillet....the slightly burnt crunchy rice at the bottom is the BEST PART.

    The Vegetable toppoki is almost as good as my grandmothers! The watermelon feta salad is amazing as is the tofu salad!

    The steamed bun with spicy pork and Korean beef stew are my favorites here.

    For those of you who love ddukbokgi, but can't handle the spice, try the alt version: soy sauce + beef bulgogi.

    Try kimchi rice au gratin & tofu pockets are the bomb ass!
