    Come for the Bibimbap burger – the winner of the Best Burger in America. You’ll be wowed by a beef patty cooked with a sweet and savory sauce, topped with slaw and a slow cooked egg.

    Bibimbap burger! Duh. Fries come w/ a great sweet mayo sauce. Add sriracha to both = amazing. Ribs are fall-off-the-bone good - a bit overpriced for only 3 but with Scoutmob's 50% off, worth a try.

    I had the spring rolls & the coconut corn chicken tacos. Husband had the ribs & the Korean barbeque skirt steak tacos. Cream puffs with this amazing zesty lemon filling for dessert. We'll be back.

    Yeah yeah yeah, the bimbimbop is all the rage here, but for something else yummy and super satisfying, get the fish tacos. So damned good with a big squirt of sriracha. BOOM!

    Amazing food! Friends were all satisfied. The Bulgogi Burger is awesome & the Hanoi is great. Kung Pao...Wow is another favorite. All in all, great food at a great price.

    Our 11y/o son devoured the wings and Bibimbap burger! Everything was delicious. Service was great. Only thing was extra charge for the kid's soda refills.

    The smoked ribs were excellent--tasted just like my mom's homestyle cooking. The bulgogi burger had a perfect combination of flavors and the fries were amazingly crispy!

    The bulgogi burger and chicken tacos were wonderful. The other taco dishes were too spicy and eggrolls left something to be desired. I loved Angelo's sandwich shop and this was a bummer.

    Like it for lunch more and get the bulgogi burger! Course portion is smaller (too small, ramen) under prix fixe dinner. Average quality, didn't match expectations given the chef's fame, price, reviews

    Bibimbap burger is da bomb. So is the pork bun. Ramen is a little salty but very good. Tuna tartare is nothing to write home about.
