The bulgogi was so delicious. In addition, the service was so expedient. The price, however, was a little on the high side. In the end, every penny was worth it! I always recommend this place to my friends. It is a nice place to bring a date!

I was reluctant to go into this restaurant at first because it was a really small space, but I was glad after I sat down & got my food. Yes, the place is tiny, it can probably hold not even 20 ppl, but it was a nice intimate dinner spent
