I had never been to a Korean
I had never been to a Korean restaurant and didn't know what to expect. The food was incredible and I can't wait to go back. So glad Cincinnati has something like this!

Very yummy and impressive
Very yummy and impressive ambiance. I think this is the closest to fine dining Korean we have. The food was excellent; I wish my server was better informed on matching dishes to diners. I love adventurous foods and had to work to get him away from bibimbap. I think the menu at Riverside is stronger. We were trying to get to a show, and made it just in time.

Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Excellent food. The background music was a bit overwhelming considering we were the only 2 diners.

We had a lovely dinner with 4 friends. We could all talk(and hear) . . .were not rushed and enjoyed great food. We started with sushi . . .and ordered a couple times. Then moved on to wonderful rice bowls. Before we knew it - 3 hours had passed - and not once did we feel rushed. The service was just great. It has a most oriental feel and a pleasant quiet peacefulness among the servers.

A good Korean-themed dinner
My fiancée is half-Korean and as such she has been looking for good Korean restaurants in our area. Sung fits the bill. The food reminded her of her mother's cooking and she was pleased with the selection.
For an appetizer we had Gimbap, a tasty meaty rice roll with a delicious sauce.
I had dolsot bibimbap, and being inexperienced with Korean cuisine, I was impressed. The food was delicious! The meal included six banchan, also delicious. My favorite was the mushrooms. I enjoyed their strawberry infused sake with dinner.
The restaurant was very empty when we arrived, however it was tuesday afternoon. The atmosphere was nice, although the open floor plan may be a bit noisy when crowded.

Good range of food at a convenient
Good range of food at a convenient downtown location. In general the Korean dishes are pretty authentic. Prices are a bit higher than I'd prefer, though not bad for the food and ambiance provided.

Authentic food & great atmosphere
I had the pleasure of going here for dinner for my 40th birthday. We aren't from the area and found the restaurant on a website for dining out. We wanted something unique and that's what we got. The food was amazing, the service was excellent, and they even gave me a slice of dessert with happy birthday in Korean on it. Lots of variety, great atmosphere, and informative about the menu. If we lived in the area I would definitely go back.

Excellent food. Service a little sluggish. Also, they tend to bring all the food at once even though we asked them to space it out.

would go again
Food excellent, drinks excellent, servers attitude was excellent. There was a new bartender and We had to wait for the Pimm's Cup longer than We should have but it was worth it. Nice atmosphere. Menu unusual and great.

Sung was a good experience. Food was excellent. Both the ribs and the bowl we had as entrees were well prepared and extremely flavorful. Service was good as well, not outstanding but solid as they were there when you needed them. We started out with the sushi and it wasn't very impressive. Thought it was priced high and the flavor wasn't there. Would not order that again, but overall experience was very good.

Amazing service, presentation
Amazing service, presentation of food, excellent selection from sushi and drink menus, and very delicious desserts! I love how this restaurants isn't in the middle of the busy city, so it's easy to get a reservation and not have overcrowding, but the ambiance is awesome with this highly-decorated and appropriately decor'd Korean Bistro. I have been several times, and have brought many of my friends - all of whom love it!

Real Korean Food
Sung Korean Bistro provided a great dining experience even for the vegetarians and vegans in our group. The food smelled delicious. The flavors were unique. Hot items came hot and the cold were cold. The small 6 sides including marinated mushrooms, seaweed salad, kimchi, and marinated diacon were wonderful additions. We started with 2 sushi rolls as appetizers which were great, too.
BTW, about half the diners were speaking in Korean, which is always a great sign. I'd highly recommend.

Wonderful Downtown Gem
Dined with two others and we shared two dishes, the mackerel and Dolsot Bibimbab - a lovely presentation of rice, lots of veggies and your choice of protein (we chose chicken) in a sizzling bowl topped with an egg and chili sauce to your desired level. Great choices - we were very pleased. And the best part was a surprise of 3 assorted Korean rolls, a gratis sampling our waiter gave us to introduce the new new items, which will replace the sushi at the end of the month. They were absolutely delicious and I will definitely include them with my order next time - we will be back!

Delicious, from dish one.
If you've never had Korean food before, stop by Sung and expand your palate. If you have, you'll be treated to delightful savory Korean cuisine served by the friendliest waitstaff. My girlfriend and I were treated brilliantly and every dish served made a smile from ear to ear.

Sung Korean Bistro - Great Food
The Dolsot Bibimbab rice and vegetable dish is excellent. We ordered the seafood combination. The stone bowl gives the rice a delectable crunchiness and keeps the generous portion of food warm throughout the meal.
The atmosphere is modern and the beautiful lighting gives it a warm feeling.
Our waiter was friendly and knowledgeable and gave us great service.
The Flamenco guitarist was excellent!!!

Second time at Sung KB and thoroughly enjoyed it again. We split one of the rolls (8 pieces) for an appetizer then shared the dolsot bibimbap which was excellent. Service was great as the server easily explained portions of the menu where we had questions. Cannot wait to return.

Sung Korean Bistro
2nd visit. Something changed with the very first course. The candied potatoes were good. The marinated mushrooms were good. The kimchi was much more spicy and quite sour. I thought the kimchi was much better on our first visit. For our lunches, spouse had bibimbap, which was very good. There was enough for two people. I had the bulgogi, which was also bery good. Dessert was the pinnacle. A friend of the owner makes vanilla cheesecakes which are drizzled with strawberry sauce and cut-up berries, plus drops of chocolate. Superb!

A very reliable source of
A very reliable source of Korean food at a convenient downtown location. The menu isn't very large, but it has all of the Korean basics, done properly. Knowledgeable, attentive servers. Good beer list, OK wine list. It would be pretty noisy if full, but not usually full.

We love Sung Korean and it's a favorite of ours. Their appetizer sampler is always delicious. The Dolsot Bibimbab is a Korean dish with lots of veggies, rice and your choice of protein cooked in a heavy ceramic bowl. The rice on the edges gets crispy and it's delicious. Everything we have tried has been exceptionally good. The service is prompt, professional and courteous. The decor is attractive and inviting. The prices are a great value for the quality and quantity.
