    Tacos are pretty tasty, but you definitely need three or more for a meal. Place gets busy, but they move people through quickly.

    Sizzling bibimbop w/ chicken & multi grain rice is my favorite...especially at the bottom of the bowl where the rice is crispy

    Korean food for white people. Who puts alfalfa sprouts in dolsot bi bim bap? And no raw egg? Cheap veggies, not great.

    Dol sot with pork is the way to go. Tacos are hit or miss. The hot sauce isn't that strong but great flavor. $15 minimum on cards!!!

    Avoid the beef soondubu (soft tofu soup)! The broth was bland, the tofu was not soft and the beef tastes like they washed the marinade off some pieces of bulgogi.

    Look for the best and most filling bibimbop bowl in town (packed with bean sprouts, multigrain rice and your choice of protein, plus a side of kimchi) and loads of other vegetable-dense dishes. Read more

    Fresh and refreshing Korean food. A tiny dining room makes it not a great spot for groups, but it's perfect for parties of two.
