The food is basic Korean- a very good selection of stews, rice and noodle dishes and also fish stews (jigae). The seasoning is relatively basic, not the most flavourful but serviceable. Good prices and good for both small and large groups. Side dishes (panchan) are decent, and the kimchi that comes out with the side dishes is good (an indicator... More

As other reviewers have already mentioned, both the food and service here lack consistency. On some days, the food is great and the service is quick. On other days, it's total chaos with tables left uncleaned and piles of dirty dishes while the food takes forever to arrive.

I stand with my opinion that this location serve the best gamjatang i ever tasted even at par or even better than some of those in Seoul, Korea. Price are so affordable (can even be consider very cheap) as they never discounted the amount of side dishes they serve to their customer. Truly recommended and very family friendly.

Had a quick lunch off their lunch menu. Service was quick and the food was not bad. The restaurant was fairly busy but got done in 30 minutes.

I just went to eat at the restaurant with my husband at midnight on Monday night... and the young lady that served us gave bad customer service. When she set our table after we sat down, she placed the eating utensils directly on the table without putting the placemats and napkins on the table first which may have contaminated our... More

Went for a friends birthday. We didn't ask for much but whenever we asked the waitress for something she made it very clear that she didn't want to help us by rolling her eyes, or tilting her head back in disappointment. It was very childish and unprofessional. The food was just ok. Nothing special. Prices could be a slightly cheaper... More

Late night Korean goodness....This is one of the few things I missed about being in Toronto. I like the call button service. Nak Won's BBQ Pork belly, Galbi, & Banchans were delish...and their Gamjatang is a must-try.

Bad food, expensive (much of our $55 bbq kalbi was bone and sinew), and mandatory tip for extremely bad service. And they misled us to think the set meals are all-you-can-eat. Set meal for limited meat for $55!! Avoid this place.

I go here a lot. Sometimes it's pretty crazy, with the heat, the crowds, the smoke, the mess, getting a table, getting noticed by the wait staff, etc. Other times, it's completely different. Sometimes I get a nice table easily, order quickly, and get my food quickly as well. Other times, it seems they forget about my order and I... More
