We ordered dumpling, soybean, and kimchi versions of the soon tofu. My daughter got the Broiled BBQ (Beef) Hot Stone Pot Rice - her usual. You can indicate the level of spice from mild to very spicy. They give you a raw egg that can be added into your soon tofu, if you wish. My wife enjoys the complimentary side... More

Quick food that is reasonably priced, but ingredients are getting thinner. My combo choice used to have several shrimps and mussels, but it's now down to one of each with some beef at the bottom. Tofu and the side dishes of spicy Korean veggies are still the greatest.

Mom and pop Koreatown eatery with a wide ranging menu and lavish combos including soon tofu, beef bulgogi, and all the traditional sides including a yummy kimchi! Packed restaurant with quick service. Loved the veggie soon tofu and beef bulgogi. Chicken teriyaki was great also. Dumplings were beautiful!

We went there as a group of 4. We love the super hot pots the food comes in. It was very tasty. My first time at this style of Korea restaurant (with the food served in steaming pots) and it was delicious !

Extremely tasty, great price point, friendly service. The menu is very basic, but I like it that way. This place knows what they're good at and sticks to it. On my most recent visit, I ordered the combination soon tofu (choice 1 on the menu), medium spicy. Spice level was perfect for me. Tofu and broth/soup were delicious. While description... More

This was my first time having Korean food so I wasn't sure what to expect. I have to say, this restaurant didn't disappoint. I got the dumpling soon tofu and it came with purple rice and four side dishes. Everything tasted good and for a price of $8 you can't go wrong. Just a tip: there are different levels of... More

Outstanding. THE FOOD I had the squid and pork. The chili paste was just thick enough to coat all side of each morsel. THE SERVICE Very friendly and super courteous. THE ATMOSPHERE Smallish, cheerfully appointed. Bathroom could use a makeover.

We went to this place after seeing so many positive reviews. We were disappointed. The appetizers taste like bad canned food, especially the kimchi. Tofu soup is alright but better options abound in the area.
