It was alright. Nothing special.

I came here with a bunch of coworkers for a farewell dinner, and it was pretty quiet when we went. Had somewhere about.. 15 people going and the service was decent. My coworkers drank, and had this special alcoholic drink that had yogurt in it? They seemed to like it a lot.

The service here is decent, despite the fact we had lots of people. One problem we had was that most of the people who work there don't actually speak English or had a hard time understanding what we wanted. We ended up writing all our orders down on a sheet and giving it to them, so that was fine. We never had to ask them to do refills, and they would routinely come by to see if we needed any more drinks. They were brief but friendly.

The food here is okay. A coworker of mine who's from Tazmania ordered the black bean noodle which he found way too spicy- of course I have no idea if that's his problem cause he's not used to hot food. Another coworker from France had a hard time eating his fried rice dish cause it was also too hot (don't think French people really eat spicy food either though). I had a dish with just cooked veggies on rice, and my boyfriend had something similar but with seafood on his. Both were just okay, nothing special. Dunno if it was just me, but I had to drink a lot of water while eating my dinner. The portion size is decent, but according to my bf (who's Korean), lots of other places give you bigger portions than this place does, so I'm not sure. The price was from about 9-15 dollars for an entree. No one bothered to get dessert.

Overall look of the restaurant is kind of sleek and clean. No fancy decorations or anything. They also have rooms for karaoke if that's what you're looking for. And they do play Korean music.

I wouldn't say my experience here is awful, but it's not the best either. I wouldn't mind going back, but I wouldn't recommend it either.

The food was very delicious, some taste like in Korea with a good price. Restaurant is not so big but it's very clean. It is a quiet place. Service was very good they were very friendly. The food was very hot and tasty. The food reminds me of authentic Korean cuisine just like back home.
