Very simply put — great appetizers, very good Kim chee, tasty beer, and good service. We watched a lot of delicious food going by to other tables. Pretty good place.

Hidden in Marina Square shopping center, this little Korean restaurant is consistently great. Flavors just right, service is fast, people are friendly. What more could you ask for?

We are regulars at Myung Dong. The service is always very attentive. The owner and the waitress are always very smily. We always order the soon tofu, Galbi Tang and the BBQ dishes. They all taste delicious and so are their variety of side dishes.
