The staff is friendly and attentive, and the dining area is well-kept. There were several patrons here, but my first clue about the food should have been that I didn't see any Koreans...I've eaten Korean food in several places, both in restaurants and home-cooked meals. This was not what I'm accustomed to. The kimchi was more sweet than spicy which,... More

The soup with tofu have never tried it but it's great with a flavorful broth and the barbecue is very tasteful. Unique combinations and make sure you understand how to use the side dishes

The tables here are always sticky...which is sort of gross. But the service is always great...always fast and accurate. The food is very good...love the tofu, love the kalbi. Not a lot of seating, but they do a good job with table turnover...rarely have we had to wait. Easy access with lots of parking.

Quick service. Food was fresh and cooked well. We ordered way to many dishes. Korean BBQ was good, curry chicken was tasty and most of our dishes. Wouldn't mind going back except for the fact that HOUSTON has too many restaurants that I would like to try.

The BBQ pork and curry soup were awesome. My husband ordered the chewy spicy noodles but we did not like it. Service was fast.

A great Korean restaurant located, disconcertingly, in Chinatown. They specialize in tofu soup and the food is great AND cheap. Usually quite busy. The restaurant is not too big, but packed with people from every race and ethnicity enjoying Korean food with gusto. Ask for hot barley tea if you have never tried it! It is free. They serve fried...

About a month ago I visited this restaurant with my parents. All of us enjoyed the food, we thought it was well-prepared and delicious. I don't know if we didn't get great service because we didn't speak Korean, but we let it slide because it was super busy. Today, I had lunch with a friend. The restaurant was only half... More

We have been going to this place every other weekend for almost two months now when we go shopping in Chinatown. Each time, we try a different tofu soup -- of which they have many types. The side dishes are delicious and portions are plentiful. For two of us to eat and feel full, the price is great. The tofu... More

Found this place on Trip Advisor and after reading reviews thought I would try a new place; decided to take my 7 friends from out of town who were craving Korean Food. Let me preface that I know Korean food, from being in Korea and family members. After my experience here you would have to believe that the ones who... More
