The portion of the dishes they serve is quite good and most menu items are ideal for sharing. The dishes are reasonably priced as well.


One of their highly-recommended dishes is a meat dish called Suyuk.

Another dish which has earned many ravings is their Dakgalbi. This is pan-fried, seasoned chicken served with vegetables, rice cake, sweet potato, and a spicy sauce – a dish perfect for two.
