I noticed several months ago that a new Korean restaurant had opened up in the Guildford area. So we finally made it out there over the weekend.
We were there for an early dinner, around 5:30. There were not busy with only 3 or 4 other tables being served. The Korean ladies were surprisingly friendly (I've had terrible experiences in the past at other Korean restaurants). We ordered the Smile Combo for 2-3 people. It came out fairly quickly and everything was brought out all at once on a serving cart. The combo consisted of beef, chicken, and pork bulgoki, tempura, two bowls of rice, Korean miso soup, and salad. As well we got the usual communal dishes of kimchi, sprouts, and other goodies. The bulgoki is cooked at the table on the hot plates like most korean restaurants. The waitress was very nice and placed the meat on the hot plate and was also taking care of cooking the meat. Now I tend to be overly cautious about how food is handled/cooked so when I noticed that (1) the she used the same tongs to place the raw meat on the hot plate and to turn the cooked meat over, and (2) she was using scissors at the dinner table to cut the raw chicken and beef into smaller strips. That didn't sit well with me so I told the waitress that I would tend to the meat. She reluctantly left. I wish they would just do that before they brought it out. Doesn't it make more sense to cut the meat before it's brought out? I don't like the possibility that something, be it the cutlery, plates, or food could get contaminated at the table.
Other than that, the food was pretty good. The service was good. My 9 year old particularly loves the calling bells at the table. He always wants to press the button for service!! But it is really a nice feature as when the restaurant service picked up after 6:00, we used the service button to get another round of drinks. No waiting. It's great.
I suspect that the food is much more traditional than some of the other Korean restaurants as I saw a steady stream of Korean patrons. I will have to try it for myself to be sure though.
I would recommend.
