I actually liked my visit here. Even though I did a togo order, the staff here were friendly and fast.
Our tofu soups were really good and not overly salty. My husband is Korean and so he has been eating Korean food his whole life and he likes the tofu soups here- that says a lot!
The prices are a little high for what we are used to but it's as good as it gets in this side of Irvine in terms of tofu soup.
Parking in this plaza sucks.
The two stars is for the food, as the quality is usually pretty consistent. I'm docking off three stars today for my experience dining in, after being scoffed at because I asked for more refills on the side dishes. The service is usually fine here but today it was just unacceptable.
Normally at these locations, side dishes are refillable and the servers are very generous on the amount. However, one worker in particular here kept giving us so much attitude when it was only our second time asking for more sides. First, I asked for more sides on the all the empty dishes (4). She grabs two and refills them, and was about to walk away not grabbing the other two until I stopped her and said AGAIN, will you refill those two as well, please? And how does she react? She scoffs to herself and grabs the two dishes. Why are you being so rude, and making it so uncomfortable for customers to ask for more sides? If i only ordered a soup and ate sides all day, then yeah I get it. But we got so much food and you still have the audacity to guilt us for asking for refills! Are they not free? If so, let us know because we'd gladly go to BCD. At least there, they treat us respectfully. And refill our waters. And give us our receipt instead of making us take a picture... Totally ruined the dining experience.
We did a meetup group of 50+ people and this restaurant delivered on the mark. I have been eating here for years and the food is delicious.
We had a blast of a time.
Great Korean food.
The manager is very friendly and courteous.
Not the cheapest place but the food is worth it. They use less ot no msg than most other Korean places. Parking is a tough during lunch time but other than that it's a good place
I've been coming here for probably 15 years. I no longer live in Irvine, but I was having a super crazy busy time at work, and stopped here on my way back from a work thing. I thought to myself, "I DESERVE THIS."
Although I came here for the soft tofu, obviously, a big motivation for coming here is also for the side dishes. I ordered the kimchee beef tofu bowl, and fully took advantage of the side dishes. I only wanted one round of side dishes, since as much as I love Korean food, I only have one stomach. However, they saw that I had finished a bunch of the side dishes and brought me round two - well, OK, if you insist...
This place is consistent and hits the spot. I left very happy. Keep it up.
