I have to say that I wish this was a better rating. The new place is so close and I would love to know there is a great new "go-to" spot.
First impression of the interior, very nice, clean and has a modern, but conservative look. They took over the old -Ah Wok location and that was very dated, so nice new look. We were greeted in a friendly manner and asked if we wanted regular menu items or barbecue. Initially, we choose regular items because based on the one Yelp review, we really wanted to try their ramen. But, sadly, we found out that ramen is only offered as a lunch choice. I find that difficult to understand because they have udon on the dinner menu.
We moved to a barbecue table to order bulgogi and marinated chicken breast for the traditional Korean BBQ. The prices are high, each item is over $20. The "sides" we're ok, not too imaginative or plentiful. The orders were ok, bulgogi, very stringy, the chicken breast, just plain. I had to ask for rice and also ask for miso soup, did not come with the meal or they forgot. I will have to review my receipt more closely. They also did not have any dipping sauces. When I asked for some, they did bring Sriracha which helped, but not really what I am accustomed to for Korean BBQ. The dinner was disappointing.
Some hope is still there because I did order chicken Katsu carry out and it was decent. Also, if they do offer affordable and tasty ramen at lunch, I might try that. For now, will not be a dinner destination.
Just telling you what to expect. Looking around the portions are pretty large. The menu price is also commensurate. I went over the weekend and my wife had sushi. Quite acceptable, but nothing exceptional. I had their spicy octopus. It was spicy hot - no problem. The octopus was very rubbery. Very chewy and not what I expected. Don't go for that.
Dishes are often designed for two. So that is why they seem expensive.
Decor is nice and the service is great.
Next time I will go to my regular sushi place. Cost benefit is not there.
It's bangin. $8.50 ramen lunch special (shoyo, miso or tonkatsu) and the also had a special which was three piece nigiri and a bowl of udon. The place is clean and Americanized. The menu is in English with some pictures. The waitress was very attentive which is rare for many Korean places. They had sriracha which Ashijian doesn't carry and even out jalapeños and cayenne peppers in my Ramen since I said I wanted it spicy. Better and faster than Oharu. Cleaner than Nagano. This could be the new lunch spot!
Terrible terrible terrible.
They told they are open till 10:30pm and the last order is 10:15pm. But when we get there around 9:45, one waitress was not happy for us to order obviously. She declined our order because it takes time.
But what was really terrible was, even we were still eating, they started to pull the chairs upside down on the tables. Even close ones from us. Never had this crazy experience anywhere in the world.
The food is not that good, either.
I would never use this restaurant.
