The Korean side of the menu is equally extensive. Barbecue dishes including kalbi and bulgogi are cooked on table top grills and meals include, in addition to rice and steamed vegetables, the tempting little servings of condiments and relishes, notably kimchi, the love-it-or-hate-it pickled vegetable dish. The setting is highly contemporary in bold colors of orange and green and service is notably emphasized. Lunch prices are very reasonable.
