    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

    Wild decor, helpful staff.

  • TastyMontreal

    It is one of the best Korean restaurants that I have tried in years in a way that everything was authentically Korean. Hot steamed egg pot was very Korean in perfection Read more

    The portion is huge and they offer free fried eggs and spicy rice cake.

    Go there when you have a big appetite... or else... the portion of the food will eat you alive. Great service! very attentive, I always get the seafood soup and live octopus!

    Head here for the thrill of eating sannakji, the still wriggling appendages of a recently dispatched young octopus. Read more

    Good place to come with a big group of friends for seafood pot and bbq

    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

    This late-night Korean restaurant “has a great atmosphere”, says Chef Michael Ginor.

    Their live octopus is amazing!

    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

    Try the Pajeon (Korean Pancake)

  • Michelle T.

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

    Get their haemul pajeon (seafood pancake) and napjak gulrae mandoo (flat dumpling)!! Ridiculously GOOD.

    A live octopus appetizer and a shell-fish tower makes for an unforgettable outing to Queens.
