A little pricey but good food – This seems to be one of the FEW korean restaurants in the Buffalo area, so I guess that's why the dishes are a bit overpriced compared to korean food in other major cities such as Toronto. The bimbab was authentic but there were literally a pinch of GROUND beef... the rest were just vegetables and rice.... not something I expected to cost almost $11. Next time I would like to try the seafood one.... they can't ground up seafood now can they? We also ordered a Janese style UDON noodle soup, with a few pieces of fish cake on top... again, not something I expected to cost $13.... will never order that again. The korean dumplings were tasty, but do not order the TEMPURA.... it's not the Japanese style tempura you're thinking of... it was sliced onions, zuchhini and green and red peppers balled up and deep fried. I was expecting deep fried big chunks of individual vegetables such as carrots, sweet potatoes, zuchhini, yam...etc. I personally HATE bell peppers so that appetizer was definitely a huge disappointment. Overall it was a good experience because at least the food was authentic, but next time I will definitely skip the tempura appetizer and stay away from the UDON noodle dish... and stick with KOREAN dishes.
The only Korean game in town, this Williamsville restaurant lures barbecue lovers with high quality and a little adventure. – The Scene
Williamsville contains the only Korean restaurant in town, now drawing folks for its quality rather than curiosity. Besides booths and tables, the pleasant interior includes three gas barbecue booths complete with mammoth hoods. Friendly servers patiently explain and train eager Korean-dining novices.
Seven or eight small communal appetizers (ginseng, seaweed, fish cakes, kimchi) are served almost immediately. For the main course, diners barbecue bits of marinated meat and roll them in lettuce leaves with garlic cloves and bean paste. The gae chigae (clam stew) with tofu and clam shells is spicy, while the haemui panjun, an eggy Korean "pizza" with oysters and seaweed, is extraordinary.
Dish to Die For
One of the chef's specialties, japchae is a beef dish with mushrooms, shredded vegetables and translucent rice noodles.
Stellar Service – Very friendly and accomdating staff. I was able to reserve over half the restaurant for larger parties on several occasions with ease. They even allowed us to throw a surprise birthday party and sang in Korean to the birthday boy! No problems when we had unexpected additions or kids. I highly recommended them to everyone.
