    Everything is a bit more on the expensive side and expect loud chatter from nearby patrons. The service is great. A good place to come to drink with a small group of friends as the space is small.

    Make sure you are hungry because the portion here is big as well as the price. But everything is so goooood

    I always order the beef bulgogi and watermelon soju. Staff is exceptional. Great place to go w/friends for a late night or in the day with family. They were very cute w/my grandma (her first time) 🤗

    The medium sized seafood hot pot was enough for my family of 5. We also got the rice with roe after. Get it with cheese!

    Live octopus is the star of the show at this Flushing restaurant. The octopus isn't actually alive, it's chopped to death just minutes before your consumption, so the tentacles are still writhing. Read more

    Yes, I will go through hell of pennstation to ride on LIRR for 30 mins to get to this place. Get a group of your closestfriends and just toast the night away. Worth it.

    For me you can hardly do better than a big crab carapace filled with roe and back fat. It’s really the only time when back fat is really a cool and attractive thing.

    Tae Yang and Big Bang on the mix while you eat octopus boiled alive ;P

    Recommended Dish: Sannakji Do Pan. A steaming Everest of sea creatures. Nothing like watching your meal expire slowly while you eat. It’s the death throes that make it good. - Anthony Bourdain

    They're famous for the live octopus, yet every single time we come here, they're sold out!! Big disappointment.
