Soonja is well off the main commercial strip of Nassau street tucked away in a quiet corner to the campus. It is assuming and understated, but a really delightful restaurant. They are clearly a Korean restaurant, but they also serve Chinese and Japanese dishes and sushi. The sushi was described by a my companion, connoisseur, who says ht its very good. The reason to come here, however, is the authentic, flavorful Korea dishes. The Bi Bim Bap is outstanding, flavorful and HOT. One of the best I've ever had. The dumpling soup is flavorful and hearty.
The staff is attentive, knowledgable and helpful. Definitely worth the trip.

Ate here with colleagues from work. Is a little dingy and did not line the tables with all the hand written messages under the glass tops. Service was fine. Had sashimi starter which was well prepared and a number of sushi roles. Rolls were all fine without being exceptional. Would eat here again if in the area but was not overwhelmed by this place.

We have been here several times over the past couple of years after a friend recommended it to us. Have always emitted the food there, strain by worth the tea, soup, and then entree. The only negative is that there's nothing to write home about on desserts.

I had some excellent sushi here.

Large menu from sushi and sashimi, rolls, hi dip bop, ramen, cooked dishes, tempura you name it. Clean place. Very impressed. I would go back and if I lived in Princeton I would have lunch there all the time.
