Had a very pleasant experience. Food and service were both very good. If possible, would recommend the bbq tables, as it adds to both the enjoyment and authenticity of the meal. Do allow plenty of time to dine if at the bbq, the meats will come out sequentially in order for the grill beds to be switched out.

One of our absolute favorite restaurants in Cincinnati, Sung offers a wide variety of Korean dishes paired superbly with some of other Asian style yummy stuff. An absolute delight in regards to the palate, it also brings a superb ambiance with a very nice and eclectic taste in the background music choice. Greatly recommended.

We enjoy having dinner at Sung before walking one block to the Shakespeare theater.
The bowls are always good and this time I tried the baby back ribs-so good, tender and sauce was fabulous. The pineapple parfait was nothing more than super sweet canned pineapple with Redi-whip topped with toasted coconut-not worth $8. My friend had the green tea ice cream and said it was a nice, not-to-sweet note to end the meal on.

I have to say that the service was great but we did think that the price of the food was a little high. The squid was a little too chewy, also.

The food at sung is great, we got 3-4 appetizers as our meal. The stone bowls are great too though. Our server wasn't very attentive and seemed fairly untrained in table service etiquette, I've served in fine dining before so I have a good perspective on that aspect of things. It's possible he was new.
Would go again but would request an alt. server.

I took a friend who had never eaten Korean before (I've eaten it too many times to count!), so I recommended dishes for him that were more familiar to Americans. We were not disappointed! The food was excellent as was the service and the atmosphere. We will return.
