This Korean BBQ is a standart one, but the place is convenience. I always like kimchi, bulkalbi and fresh garlic.

People were lined up early to get into this restaurant, and we were among them, thanks to a review I found on line. Although the decor lacks ambiance, don't let that deter you or you will miss a great meal. The place filled to capacity immediately and in minutes we were served water and hot tea and our order taken.... More

Took my friend out for a birthday dinner at Sura. Tried to come here for lunch once but very busy and no reservations taken so had to pick another place. We shared the squid bulgogi - soup very tasty, beef galbi - very tender, and the spicy tofu soup - raw egg made it very smooth. We also got 3... More

This was my first time eating Korean food and I was pleasantly surprised! My five friends and I went there on a Monday around 6:30pm. They were fairly busy, and do not take reservations but we made it in after a short 15 minute wait. There was a warm ambience around the restaurant where they had candles set out on... More

I love korean food and could not resist the opportunity to try Sura. When I got there I had a wait, but it was a short one. The food we ordered came quickly and came in large portions, so we had to end up taking it away - but I didn't mind because we got to eat that delicious food... More

Visited this establishment during dinner time around 7pm with friends. Very busy inside with locals! Food very authentic and was impressed.

Had to wait for my tea refil,... More

I knew of Sura but never went as I had my favourite Korean places down the road. But I could not deny the amazing reviews that this place gets. Wow. And it's well deserved too.

2 of us had the $15 set meal. It was breathtaking and filling. It all barely squeezed onto the table. My friend said a few of the dishes were too sweet, but overall they were all great What a great deal.
