    I'll recommend the place but I'm really more slanted towards it being 'just okay'. First of all, it is really cramped. The table for two is about 3'x5' in dimensional size and the restaurant is so busy that you actually feel bad about waving down the staff. The 칼국수(kahlgooksoo) is bomb. Chicken broth meets pork bits. The hearty taste of the broth is well complimented by the smoky taste of the pork. The 비빔국수(bibimgooksoo) is okay at first but gets increasingly spicier due to the pungent seasoning of minced garlic. The kimchee tastes just like the bibimgooksoo. Too garlicky... All in all, I would go for the kahlgooksoo again. FYI - Free rice and free refills on kahlgooksoo. Awesome sauce!

    This is a really simple resturant. They only do a few dishes but they do them well. If you like mandu I would definitely give it a go. The place is upstairs and is large but cramped. The tables are shared so it's kind of like a cafeteria style. We thought we might have to wait but being just two we were seated right away. The service was very quick and you pay at the table so I actually didn't even notice my friend had paid it was so quick. The food also came very quickly we waited I think less than 10 minutes. I really liked the food, it's quite plain so you can add to it if you like but if you are like me and don't like spice at all then it is good. my friend and I shared and she just put some in a bowl and added all the things she wanted to to make it more flavorful. Then I could just eat mine plain. Overall this is a nice quick eatery with good food. It's not a place to linger and have long conversation but if you are just looking for a bite to eat while out shopping then it's a good one to try.

    Atmosphere: noisy, shared tables. Hong Kong dim sum feel like an old cafeteria from a different era. Country Western simple feel as well. Food: Biminguksu was not too spicy and had a strong cucumber taste which added lightness and freshness to the dish. Ground meat inside was a surprise. Dumpling soup included bits of ground meat as well. A bit greasy and hardy with a thick sauce similar to American style chicken noodle soup. Kimchi is potent with lots of pepper paste stuck to the outside.

    Korean comfort food. There are better places to go for mandoo or kalguksu, but this place is a good, reliable choice, especially when it's chilly out and you can't decide where to go for a bite. It's cramped, crowded, and noisy. There always seems to be a long line. There is a no-nonsense feel to the place that can feel unwelcoming, but I think that's part of the charm.

    Love this place! Really affordable and you can get as many noodle refills as you want! The dumplings, however, I was not too fond of.
