Ordered yukgyejang 육계장 and Osam (squid & pork valley 오삼불고기) Main mene and side dishes were pretty good However, this cashier/owner (i guess) does not give a xxxx about customers. I said hi to him and ignored. My crew said hi and ignored again. What a jerk. Both of us were really pissed

Really nice and beautiful place, delicious Korean food but a little too expensive, everything else was great. I really hope to come again.

I ordered bibimbap kook soo and they had none so I ended up with the kim chee stew which was hot though the broth was a bit light...the wait staff was most helpful, even going out to the road to get us a taxi...and the Korean customers were a good testament to the food...

Korean kitchen, simple decor, tasty food and attentive service. We had traditional Dolsot Bibimbap, our favourite Korean food. It came with 5 typical starters, soup and the hot pot of rice, vegetables and meat. Together with 2 waters and wines we paid less than 25 USD. Good value for money. We recommend. Seemingly the local Asian community liked it too... More

This restaurant has a great consistency in the quality and taste of the food. They have a very nice spicy pork among other dishes and the amuse bouche is really great too. Don´t miss on the Pat Bingsu.

I go there regularly. I try to his this place in santiago for authentic Korean food at least once a week, my kid and I LOVE this place! The place keeps it very clean, very simple and authentic. The food is of great quality and the banchans keep changing from day to day which means they are always fresh! The... More

I came here with a group of friends to introduce them to Korean food. I've lived in Korea for two years and I must say that I was very happy!

The menu is rather extensive and making a choice was a bit of a task actually. However, all dishes ordered (kimchi, seafood tortilla, fish and the bbq) were of good quality and service was attentive. Also, several Asians (supposedly Korean) patrons were having a meal here. The bill was definitely reasonable. (truth be told, we didn't have any alcohol) In... More

I'd been wanting to eat here for ages, and came close one week before this visit but found the restaurant mysteriously closed (on a Saturday night!). The first impression was good, with a couple of Korean families enjoying dinner. Always a good sign. That didn't last long. It quickly dawned on my how poor the dining room is; badly-lit, no...

First of all, I had never officially eaten korean food. All the foodie craze about korean BBQ made me a bit anxious so I decided to pick this one who was nearby home. Service was very good and fun, the only thing it lacked in my opinion, was a bit more info for a newbie. I don't know if i... More
