We have averaged going here about once a year since moving to K-town, but we are likely to go more often from now on. What used to be a lack-luster experience has greatly improved. Service is efficient and friendly. We both had b-bap (bibimbap): one...More

I think it's a hidden gem. I like the warm and simple decor. Their tea is free and good. They ave a good choice of daily features and very affordable. The Kimshi ragout is extra delicious.
