    Tuna was so good! Good pieces of tuna, great way to start. Beef taco was okay, a little dry for me, but the pork belly taco was very juicy and more flavourful. Fried chicken - Korean sauce was surprisingly really good. Chicken was juicy not dry at all, very crispy and a good portion!

    Great place to eat. Unintentionally ordered way more fried food that we had initially planned so be warned that a lot of the menu is fried. I wish we would have had more veggies. The cocktails were also just ok, but overall I would go back.

    We were able to get an impromptu reservation for the evening and were treated to a great experience. Our server Jordan nailed the recommendations and descriptions of the different dishes, particularly the ones that were too spicy for her. Her attentive service and apt knowledge of the menu contributed to a great evening.

    My friend had a last min emergency and I tried to make modifications to my reservation on the day of. My message was never returned and when I arrived, the staff didn’t seem to have any clue. I also found it odd that they didn’t offer the first guest from my party a table to sit. Overall, my experience is great. The food is amazingly filled with flavour. I’m very thankful that it is not sellout Asian-fusion and more of a push of the Korean flavour boundaries. The ambiance is casual yet fun with a delicious menu. I would totally return and recommend to a group of 4.

    We loved the fried chicken in Korean chili glaze - we'd come back for this alone. The other items we ordered (roasted cauliflower, Korean bulgogi and mushroom pizza, fries, crispy rice cake, green mango salad) were tasty but did not feel worth the price to us. Service was fantastic. This could be a great place for a friends/family meal (recommend the standard table seating on the kitchen side) or a casual date night (high top table seating also available for a more quiet setting on the bar side).

    We visited for the first time last night for my husband’s birthday. Korean fried chicken is one of his favourites, and we were not disappointed here. Each dish we ordered was fantastic and cooked very well. We tried the crispy chicken chips, popcorn chicken, Brussels sprouts, and the honey garlic fried chicken. The popcorn chicken and sprouts were my favourite, and my husband loved everything. Thank you for a great evening! I’m sure we’ll be back.

    The fried chicken Is another level of delicious with the Korean chili glaze or jalapeño soy topping. We munched on the fries with a Jin Jin mule and the green mango salad was a welcome cool complement to the chicken. To finish the twisted donuts and trio of sorbet were a perfect sweet bite to end a perfect meal.

    The food was delicious but a bit overpriced for the small portions you get. The music was extremely loud and our server was quite timid so it was hard to ask questions and engage.

    More successful than our last visit as the noise level was quieter! Watermelon salad, crispy rice cakes and Brussel sprouts were delicious. The fried chicken was okay - juicy, nice and crispy, but the sauce (Korean chili glaze) overpowered the taste of the chicken itself. I think next time I'd try the chicken without sauce.

    The cereal beer was excellent. The food was lackluster. The fried chicken(original) lacked flavour and seasoning, we got the sauce on the side and it was too sweet. The soy potatoes were also to sweet. The double fried pork dumplings were ok, the sauce and bird chili definitely brightened them up.

    Spring rolls are a must try, best I have ever had. Beef tacos are the best in the city. Buldak fried chicken pizza is really good as well but you will need to share it is very heavy but soo goood. Everything is delicious

    Ordered a table on our reservation and they searched and instead offered us a high top beside the bathroom entrance or a high top surrounded by the service station on both sides. When we said we would just sit at the bar in that case she offered to finish cleaning the other high top beside the bar ( passed). Bartender was a pleasant young woman but inexperienced. Food - 2 dishes excellent, the crispy rice cake and the spring rolls . The fried chicken - perhaps we ordered the wrong sauce , we found the Korean spicy sweet sauce a little cloying and unbalanced. The green mango salad was nice . The place was virtually empty but it was a Sunday night . Overall pleasant and good value for a “neighbourhood dining” experience and we would go back if we lived in the area for that.

    Location is obviously great. Most everything else was forgettable. Service was efficient but unenthusiastic. Food was alright but I feel there are lots of competing restaurants with similar or better versions of the same thing nearby. I enjoyed my pineapple cocktail. Value was ok, again lots of places do those dishes same or better for less. I wouldn't come back.
