Once you enter the dining hall, you’d wonder if this is really everything Korean with ethnic vibes, interiors and all. But wait, you’d be awed by its somewhat industrial and rustic look combined, unlike other Korean restaurants. Its ambiance will really struck you – awesome ceiling painting, combination of key elements of wood and metal, furniture with vintage appearance, the corners of the place having delicate splash of color!

  • Decent Food

How about it? Without question, their servings are great – seafood pasta, Italian dishes apart from the typical Korean soups, pasta as well as complimentary appetizers of vegetable salad and kimchi, typical of Korean diners.

Desserts? Well, their house must-try, Snow Ice (special halo-halo) is a runaway winner, bestseller in fact. Be sure to share it with a friend or two unless you have a voracious appetite for the cold and the sweet. Another must-try is their Honey Butter Berrybread with Ice Cream.

And who would ever think this is just like any ordinary bread? After all it’s loaded with cheese, butter, honey, vanilla ice cream topped with whipped cream, blueberries and strawberries, in addition to a scoop of ice cream. Now that’s something extra ordinary – the one that you don’t often get to see served in other restos during Christmas season or New Year!

  • Pricing

They offer both single and shared meals alike, but it’s good to come by the group so you can avail of their discounted promos. Though the menu is quite pricey but overall, food and service are great.
