I've eaten at Cho Sun at least 20 times over the years and it's always great. Although many restaurants seem to vary in quality from visit to visit, I've found the food to be excellent every time. We always get a number of apps - usually gyoza, spring rolls and gamja bokkeum - and all are outstanding. The sushi is... More

We orderred the spicy tuna roll as an app and it was amazing! Our main dishes were good, not great, the house made complimentary pre-dinner veggie dishes such as the Kimchee, we're very good. But that amazingly fresh and tasty sushi roll? The best I've had since I visited Japan.

This restaurant could easily top the charts if they improve upon service. Menu options are wonderful and the execution of the dishes was excellent. The service was just painfully slow. It is not clear to me whether the kitchen cannot keep up or the servers were not being attentive. I will definitely return to see if service improves. I notice... More

Good Korean and sushi in Bethel? Yes. I ate in the bar, surrounded by tv's, which I found a bit dark. However, it's a good place for a solo to eat. The bartender was friendly and efficient and offered a number of crafts beers and wines as well as soju and sake. I had a tuna maki which was delicious... More

First off, my wife is a professionally trained chef and former owner of a restaurant in New York City. Our waiter insulted her when she asked for less spicy and a low carb substitute. He told her she was "ruining the dish." He remained condescending throughout the meal with his greater than thou attitude. The sushi was okay but nothing... More

We were hoping for great food and just received average food. We love this type of food, however, we don't think that this is that good. Also, I think the prices of the entree's are a bit on the high side.

Got our menus and waited close to 15 minutes before our disinterested waitress Ashley took our order (we had asked the very helpful hostess to get her). We overhead another server mention the nightly special to which we were not informed of. Food came out fairly fast. Had veggie tempura and pork gyoza which were both good. I had short... More

I'm local and every 4-5 months I think, "I'll try Cho Sun again, maybe their service has improved." Every time I do that, I regret it. On my most recent visit our waiter came to us after visiting tables that were seated after us. I had to ask for a drink menu. The appetizers took 40 minutes to come out... More

Went in for Sushi, and was drawn in by some of the appetizers. The mussels were incredible, but the sushi was just ordinary, with a limited selection. Regardless, I would go again, most likely to focus on the Korean options.
