I enjoyed the tofu japchae, the vegetable spring rolls, and the fried vegetable dumplings. All tasted good, but the fried vegetable dumpling were my favorite.

Don't be fooled by the outside appearance and small parking space. Min Ga certainly provides great Korean food and excellent customer service. We each ordered the Kalbi BBQ and it was quite substantial for the price that we paid for. It included six side dishes,...More
