went here for my birthday dinner with about 9 or so guests. food was good and inexpensive. drinks were good but no hard alcohol. everything made with sake (cocktails). service was decent but forgot some drinks often and didn't check in with us as much as you'd expect w/ a large group. the lighting is too bright. overall, it was fun, but could use some improvement.

Was seated for over 20 minutes with no service - finally had to flag down a server to ask if we could order food. The order did come out fairly quickly and was okay.

We decided to try this place for the first time. It was a great dining experience for all four of us. We each said we would definitely return.

The potions are very generous (two could easily split a single meal). Very tasty! Highly recommend this place if you're after Korean BBQ.

Honey shrimp and potsticker appetizers were delicious and a good size, very shareable for 4 people. The dolsot bibimbap was also very good, why would you get it in a regular bowl when you could get it in a dolsot?! I will be back, I am curious about the beer tower but I need to round up more people to share it with me first!

Quick service and tons of food. Their wings and kimchi fried rice are the best! And a new fave - shrimp salad with black miso dressing!

This is one of the few Korean restaurants in the east part of the city. The galbi was a little too fatty, but the soontofu was amazing. They charge $1 extra for an egg whereas Korean restaurants in LA give it for free. Overall, the ambiance and service were great. I will definitely be coming back if I am craving Korean food again.

Went here with out of town visitors in the mood for Yakiniku. Their chicken wings were great, a bit spicy. The kalbi was well-seasoned, although with more gristle than I'd like. Would also recommend the kim chee fried rice. Mango soju cocktail awesome. Bulgogi also well seasoned but on gristly side. The food was brought out very promptly (especially for a Saturday night). They cooked the meats and brought it to the table (rather than cooking at the table), which was fine cos who wants to smell like BBQ when going out?

Not having any experience with Korean food, we were happy to find a place close to the office with good reviews. We had a wonderful experience, mostly due to our fabulous greeter/waiter, Albert. I had called that we were running late, and due to it being on a weeknight, he said no problem. He greeted us at the door when we walked in, then proceeded to walk us thru the menu, Korean beer options, & portion sizes. Everything he recommended was wonderful. He was spot on about NOT ordering too many dishes since they are huge portions. We got one salad, one appetizer (chicken wings were great) & 2 "entrees" all shared between 4 people. And there was food left over since the portions are so large. Albert, thank you for a great experience.

i searched on yelp for a restaurant in a particular geographic area (near fillmore and Geary) and this was one of the few that had 4 stars. It may have been the only one in this category to have 2 vs. 3 or 4 $ signs. We all enjoyed the food. The portions were generous. The dishes of kim chee etc that they provide to the table before the meal were refilled several times. Overall we were pleased.
