Without going to the downtown Chicago area, it is hard to get good korean food. This place has a good selection with soups and BBQ. As alway, I got the YookGae Jang a spicy beef soup. Very good with no jalapeno...

so this restaurant is prolly not as good as some in Korean town, however they are so far. so we go here pretty regularly. the bulogi and kalbi is hit or miss. too expensive to risk it, so i usually opt for one of the soups (cant go wrong) or bibimbop. because we are regulars, they usually give us onion pancake, which is so chrispy, chewy good. and tons of ban chan, the sides that go with your soup. Ban chans are good, with good variety, they will refill. hot tea upon request and they refill. they do get busy on sunday nights, (no one cooks anymore) so eat early.

A Labor Day visit to learn about Korean food was pleasant. The service towards the end of the lunch hour was a little hasty and tardy. We would have liked to discuss our meal choices before ordering but the server was in a hurry. We settled for the Soon DooBoo Chigae (Tofu seafood stew) and Dolsot Bibimbop (beef with rice -noodle mix) . Simmering hot food was served almost immediately. The complimentary onion pancake was delicious. The tofu stew was also yummy. Regretted ordering the Dolsot - it was not appetizing.

Very good Korean bbq place. Seafood pancake is very good. Service is better than other Korean restaurant. Be if you want sushi they actually serve very good rolls.

-we wanted to try a new restaurant for dinner.
-confusing when we walked in - is it sushi? or korean bbq? NOT an inviting atmosphere.
-the place could use a lot of tidying up. almost looks like a place in china town
-we are a family of 6. we consider this place pricey!
-we opted to grill on our own. we ordered 2 platters to begin our dinner. 1 kalbee ($26?) and 1 pork ($24). the portions were a joke. i was screaming inside. i could not believe people can get away with charging that much for so little. the meat wasn't even enough for my husband!!!
-service. our grill wasn't even tended to. it was burned and blackened and was not changed.
-the side dishes were a joke as well!!! both sucked in terms of variety and portion. we've eaten at these types of places before and we were stuffed just from eating the side dishes. don't count on it at this place.
-the 2 nosy, older korean ladies sitting next to us were served like royalty. i'm not racist. heck i'm asian. but i've never felt such discrimination at a friggin' restaurant.
-we left this place hungry and annoyed. what a waste of time and money.
-lesson learned. DO judge the way a place looks.
