Review: Don't be deceived by the picture from the menu, as 150mg is just a small amount for 2 persons, so we decided to have additional order of bibimbap.  They are attentive from getting our order until the cooking.  Then became not attentive when we were asking for candles as there are flies and mosquitoes in the area, slow in refilling of water, they also don't have the initiative to offer additional free side dish.  I enjoyed the bibimbap and kimchi, but not so much the beef because it is not in soft quality as what I'm expecting to be. In summary, it is an expensive option for Korean food.
