We never mentioned it, but we went for our anniversary. It’s our second time and it was just as special as the first. We loved the kind service and excitement behind the food from staff that we couldn’t help but feel the same. The food speaks for itself. It was delicious and we talk about it between us all the time and suggest Oiji to friends. Can’t wait for the next time we can pop in!

We had a prefixed valentine's dinner menu. Everything was great from the appetizer to dessert. Our favorite was oiji bowl. Wish they had a small portion al la carte menu for kids though.
Will definitely visit again!

Was our friend’s bday and we could not have chosen a better restaurant to celebrate! We had our own private space with ventilator, the staff was incredible accommodating and made great recommendations! We enjoyed all the plates we ordered... and the evening was so incredibly special (Covid could not damper our spirits)!!

Food was absolutely amazing. The truffle seafood broth and wagyu beef were our favorites. The small rooms they have built kept us warm on one of the coldest nights of the year. The plexiglass started to break a bit from the high winds but they were very apologetic about it and did their best to fix it right away. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone who misses going out for a nice dinner.

So impressed with their private cabins. They've gone out of their way to address protocols while creating an intimate setting. It's why we decided to go and we weren't disappointed. And of course, the food is beautifully plated and amazing flavors.

Its a great modern Korean restaurant. Some of the dishes were a little sweet for me, but that might be because 1.its modern Korean, and 2. Im Korean, so Im less used to that. I’d like to visit again, love the cute individual booths — very private and I live close by. Im glad that I found a nice Korean restaurant near my place!

The food is perfection. It is better than most of the Mich Star and James Beard spots in town. And their private outdoor heated cabins are ideal for a hungry, group of friends :)

It’s one of the best outdoor set ups - private “rooms” with personal heaters and an air ventilation system. That being said you should still dress warm because its not as warm as it would be inside (but still much better than most outdoor experiences) The food was amazing and the service was flawless. It’s always a treat to dine here.

Their private pod-outdoor dining setup is amazing. The food is incredible and service was top notch. They went above and beyond to accommodate our group and some dietary restrictions. The ambience and cleanliness of the outdoor "hut" is wonderful - we cannot wait to come back. Highly recommend for a small, intimate gathering for incredible food and service.

Hands down the best outdoor dining setup. Individual rooms with heater and lovely decor. Polite, courteous and knowledgeable staff. The food was incredibly original, flavorful, and just perfect. It was a 4-course Xmas eve menu. Great wine pairing as well. Will definitely return.

Food was fantastic. My fave dishes were the friend chicken and honey butter chips with vanilla ice cream.

The outdoor seating was also great as well. It was private and warm.

Waiter was very attentive and even recommended a great drink (the ladyboy) based on my preferences.

Definitely gonna come back here again.

Such a wonderful experience here! Our servers were all so knowledgeable and gave us lots of information about the dishes and the drinks. The food was all amazing - we shared four plates and two sides of kimchi - which was the perfect amount for two people. They really did such a beautiful job creating the little outdoor dining rooms, we were very comfortable. We can't wait to return!
