I had been a client for years and after trying many Korean and Japanese restaurants always keep going back there for great autentic food. The decoration needs to be renew and looks old.

The best sushi place in San Jose, always fresh, large selection of sushi and Korean food. Love the miso soup, the kimchi, California roll, caterpillar, bulgogi..... Mmm.....

Returned to the restaurant on a recent visit to San Jose and happy to report that not much has changed, including the wonderful and authentic food, same family ownership and operation, and high level of service. Had the bibimpop (plentiful, fresh, and healthy) and sushi....More
