Everything from beginning to end was undoubtedly perfect. The food was tasty and good looking in the plate, the service also was excellent. Bravo to the chef and his co-workers. If I lived in Korea I would be going to eat there everyday!

Went for lunch and the food was good, but I wouldn't consider it amazing. We ordered some appetizers (mushroom stuffed with cheese and also stuffed eggplants), salmon, and the Bulgarian meatball (more like a mini loaf) stuffed with cheese, pickles, and other ingredients. They were...More
