The new leather chairs are the only good thing about this Hip-Want-To-Be DISASTER

We went on a Saturday evening arround 6pm. The restaurant was 80% empty - first sign of something's wrong with this place. The tall waitress (seems to be manager of somesort) took about 5 minutes to put two tables together and seated us. I asked to replace beef with either pork or chicken in a bibimbap dish and got a nasty look from her, with a strict answer of "NO". When the food came, three dishes we ordered supposed to come with rice, it never did. So I asked for them, and the waitress said, "oh, yes, they do come with rice... Do you want them NOW?" ...let me think, how about we finish these dishes, and THEN you can bring the rice out, if you manage to remember to do so????!!! Now the food: seafood pancake was not cooked fully, the spicy ramen noodle had instant noodle in it, everything had the taste of MSG rather than proper beef or chicken broth... In a word, WORST KOREAN FOOD we've ever had. Oh, and the price was much higher than anything we had as well. The only good thing going for this place was the newly renovated interior. By the time we left, GyozaKing next door had people waiting in line outside the their door and Sura was still 70% empty... go figure.

Only go here if you want authentic Szechuan food. If you are expecting mainstream westernized Chinese food, this place is NOT for you! This is the only restaurant that had "Shui Zhu Yu" (water boiled fish) done right - contrary to what the name may suggest, the fish should actually come in pure hot oil as opposed to water when it gets to your table, the spices are scooped out at the table and fish will continue to be cooked the entire meal, it taste better after a while as the spices simmers in and the fish is kept hot by the oil. Ordered a couple of other dishes and all came out authentic, this place is as close to authentic Szechuan food as you can get outside of China.
