    Amazing tofu soup. One of my favorite Korean places, ever. I usually go for the mushroom tofu soup, but it's all good. I love the banchan here too! Very authentic, great and fast service!

    The Korean food here is pretty good. But it's very busy. So prepare to wait.

    Great korean restaurant. I always order Conbination Tofu Soup, and add Bibimbap or BBQ Beef (Bulgogi) according to mood.

    Bibambop is great.

  • Caroline D.

    Vegetable tofu is really good, but I'd recommend getting it medium spicy at least. Service is typical Asian service (aka nonexistent) but at least the male waiter is hella cute.

  • Alice F.

    Soft tofu with cheese tastes better than it might sound, if you want a slightly creamier soup base

    Private parking lot but gets busy on a Friday night. Wait wasn't too long and turnover is fast. Tofu soup is legit. Good banchan too.

    Yum - glass noodles are delicious, BBQ ribs good, tofu soup good

    Soup used to be a lot better in my opinion but still alright. Bibimbap is good. The cold noodle soups are a bit expensive. And... The dokboki is actually really good.

    It is a very good reasonably priced restaurant. I like the beef short ribs, the beef is very tender and well seasoned. I like the 5 or 6 small appetizer plates placed on table as one sits down.

    Great soft tofu soup. Regular is almost definitely spicy enough.

    The beef bibimbap was outstanding. The bulgogi was also pretty good.

    Don't get the cheese soondubu unless you like cheetos flavored soup. It's not melted on top it's mixed in. Stick with the basics!

    Even if lots of people are waiting outside, the wait for a table is pretty quick.

    You'll smell like Korean food after you're done. Really the only Korean restaurant in palo alto so it's usually very crowded by 6pm. Get here at 5:30 pm and you're good to go

    Not necessarily the best Korean restaurant around Stanford, but everyone has heard about it and been there. It's close to Escondido Village. The line is usually long but it's worth the wait.

    When you get the tofu soup wait for it to cool down, unless you want to singe you're taste buds
