    Love the atmosphere of this place. I highly recommend Anju, their Korean bar snacks pop-up on the first Friday of every month (10pm-1am, line starts to form around 9:30).

    The dumpling soup was too salty; I'd recommend ordering something else from here.

    One of the few, if not only, late night dining options in DC. Limited menu, but beggars can't be choosers.

    Loved the Korean brunch. You get a Korean-style omelet, chive pancakes, Korean hash browns and your choice of marinated beef, chicken or tofu followed by a scope of gelato or sorbet.

    Danielle Ricks · August 16, 2014

    The food is very fresh and you get a yummy appetizer dish with each entrée.

    Yummy dumplings and lots of other tasty Korean dishes. Also a great bar - often with food you can y order at the bar. A nice spot for happy hour.

    The lunch bar special with tacos and Mandu dumplings is great. If that's not available, the dolsot bibimbap is also great.

    The Sojutini and Mandu Happy hour is one of the best in the city. $4 drinks and Rails, and $3 dumplings cannot be beat.

    It's not on the menu, but you can ask for mulnaengmyun. If the owner (Ms. Lee) or her son are in, they'll make it for you.

    If you love Asian food and are feeling adventurous, stop by to sip creative cocktails that are refreshingly unique, and sample a repertoire of homestyle Korean dishes.

    Brunch is ok service is horrible dam near chocked on my food awaiting a glass of water waiter gave a lame excuse that they are short on staff but i watched him come out several times serving others

    Happy hour 4-7pm on weeknights and definitely try their sojutini (yogurt, mango, pineapple and few others)

    There's a great Korean tacos + dumplings + beer for $12 deal – available only if you sit at the bar.

  • Rashmi A.

    Fried mandu and sojutinis for happy hour are a must. Try the chap chae (potato noodles with veggies) for dinner. Yum!

    Rashmi Ankam · November 8, 2012
  • Robert M. Y.

    Superb. The only place in DC I've found that serves real soju!

    The Dolsot Bibimbap is delicious!

    Stephanie Man · October 3, 2012

    Pimms Cup is slightly spicey. Don't get it if you are expecting a traditional Pimms Cup.

    Vicente Garcia · September 10, 2012
  • Will M.

    Solid service, OK Korean food. The only thing close to legit that I tried was the pork bulgogi. The chap-chae, mandu & accompanying soy dip were all bland. More American than traditional Korean.

    Terrible cell service and for some reason they don't give out their wifi password. WTF?

    You can park at safeway and just one of the workers to validate your parking. Thus making it free parking! Also get the one, one, one.

    The Dweejee Bulgogi was quite amazeballs... and they play fantastic music too! My favorite new lunch stop in the North Capitol vicinity.

    Dolsot Bibim Bap. Very tasty. Not a fan of the Dduk Bok Gi dish.

    Wings at the bar for happy hour are the best

    Somyun is amazing!

  • Jared S.

    Bibimbap and the mandus (of course) were excellent. Not your traditional Korean eatery.

    Jared S · October 5, 2011
  • Lisa M.

    Go to the bar and ask for the chicken wings - they're not on the menu but they're one of the best dishes offered!

    Lisa Mathias · August 19, 2011
