First things first, this restaurant can be a bit tricky to find as it is on the top floor of a plaza and cannot be seen from ground level. (It is directly opposite from Milestones and London Drugs) I was extremely surprised that nobody had bothered to post a review about this restaurant yet! (well, even without mass publicity this restaurant has managed to stay open since 2000 A.D.)
I decided to visit this place for lunch with my family on a Thursday and the place wasn't too busy around 12:30. I wasn't expecting much from the get go due to the few customers inside and the clean but not too fancy ambiance. We ordered the lunch special (spicy chicken and standard beef) along with the ginseng chicken soup and the bibimbap (heated stone bowl filled with rice and other goodies)
Spicy Chicken - This stuff was okay, slightly above average but not spectacular.
Beef - It was really standard here, I wasn't really impressed because I known I could have gotten a better cut
Ginseng chicken soup - Wow, this soup was tasty without any apparent spikes of MSG! In your serving bowl, they actually give you a whole chicken stuffed with sticky rice which was naturally flavoured by the chicken and the broth
Bibimbap - This stuff was awesome! I don't know why it tasted so good; the bibimbap seemed pretty standard but the execution was definitely excellent: a "must have" on their menu.
For a one man (or woman I should say) kitchen, the dishes came out at a good speed without unnecessarily long waits. The husband (waiter) who serves is extremely soft spoken but bent to please. (hint: If you don't like kimchi, he'll bring you another side dish)
The food here isn't cheap, but it really puts out relatively good tasting and authentic Korean food. It doesn't leave that oily-I-want-to-puke feeling you can get after eating at cheap Korean restaurants with badly prepared food. If you're ever around Richmond Centre or Chapters on No. 3, definitely drop by for a try.
