Fabulous place that serves excellent Korean Food. The decor is muted and comfortable, providing a relaxing atmosphere for a fulfilling meal. The waitstaff is extremely attentive and genial. The food is excellent: try the bimbimbap, the jigae, and the kimchee tofu. The menu is constantly expanding and the space is soon to be renovated--I can't wait for a great thing to become even better!
Love This Place!

It is the best Korean food I've ever had. We were greeted by steaming, hot green tea in a glass tumbler. The atmosphere is light with many windows to see outside on the street. The restaurant isn't usually crowded. There are candles on the tables and there is a romantic vibe. The wait staff is incredibly nice! We started with the Kimchee tofu (steamed tofu with seasoned kimchee) which was really amazing. For main dishes, I had the Hot Stone bibimbab (variety of vegetables, served over rice in a hot stone bowl with red pepper paste) and my boyfriend had the Vegetable Bokkum noodles (stir-fried noodles with assorted vegetables). Mine came in a very hot stone bowl that kept the dish STEAMING (and sizzling) hot while I ate it. They do buy 2 Sapporo and get one free but we didn't make it... on the way out the waitress asked for my boyfriend's name so he could have it the next time he came in. We returned about a month later and GOT THE SAPPORO! The cost was low. $54 for two with tax and tip.
