My husband and I dined here on a busy Thursday night in September. It was completely full which was a good start!
We shared the shitake and tofu wraps and tempura veg to start. In hindsight the veg were a mistake, they were DELICIOUS but the portion was so large and we got too full!
For main my husband had the tofu steak in a sauce with some rice (not needed!) and i had an avo rice bowl - incredible.
Absolutely great food, lovely staff, great atmosphere! If i lived in NYC i'd want to come back all the time! Proof that a veggie only restaurant needn't be dull!

This nice and cosy korean restaurant offers delicious servings in a typical korean way.
You have to take off your shoes at the entrance and then you are sitted on the floor's level. You are not disturbed by the other guests as there are semi transparent curtains between the tables.
The food was excellent. We had avocado bibimbao, emperor's roll and tofo stew with a glass of delicious organic white wine.
The staff was very nice and helpes us to make the best choices.

We came here with a small group to celebrate a friend's birthday and loved everything about it! The food is incredibly delicious and unique. The crispy mushrooms and spicy eggplant are simply amazing. The decor is authentic and cozy. Service is very attentive. Highly recommend this very special place.
