Mona's does not look like much, but it serves a really good "lunch box" as well as a full assortment of Korean dishes, which run towards stews and BBQ-type items, plenty of vegetarian things as well. Clientele indicates it is a favorite of the local Korean community as well.

This place is really inviting. The food is great. The staff was fast and made sure we were enjoying our meal. They even seated us even though it was 15 minutes till they closed. They didnt rush us either. They were really nice.

Food is Good. But place is terrible. Looks like Old Soviet Union type cafeteria.
