I had the Kalbi and Naengmyun lunch combo - it was awesome. The meat was so tender - definitely melt in your mouth. It could have been marinated a bit more, but it was fine. The Naengmyun was a full size, which I didn't expect...More

Food was okay....but definitely not worth the groupon value we payed. The reasoning of this low score is mostly to do with our experience with our waiter. Service is lacking. I will not be coming back or recommending this restaurant.

Both myself and my friend had the stone pot beef and veggie meal. While the meat was wonderfully flavorful there was too much fat and gristle to really be good. Also as this is a hit pot it should be boneless to be easier for...More
