The food served was a new take on korean food making it extremely interesting. The detailed explanations on how the food was sourced and prepared only made the anticipation all the more worth. Service was superb and pace of food was just right.

$20 Wednesday burger was great value. However it was almost cold when they served it. Tables are a bit crowded. Don’t know why only half of the bar is open and everyone squashed into tiny table or the bar. The music could be gone down a bit so easier to talk without shouting
