I knew of Sura but never went as I had my favourite Korean places down the road. But I could not deny the amazing reviews that this place gets. Wow. And it's well deserved too. Had the Galbi and the Seol Joongmae plum wine and it all was excellent. No reservations so come early...I came at 5:20 and got the... More

2 of us had the $15 set meal. It was breathtaking and filling. It all barely squeezed onto the table. My friend said a few of the dishes were too sweet, but overall they were all great What a great deal.

This is a good korean restaurant to go .You get a lot of side dishes included when you order your bbq meat items. I recommend to go early because there is always a line up or make a reservation.

It seems most of the other restaurants on the street were empty except for this one. Very telling. Glad we ordered the Kalbi. However the Galbi Jim was so-so.

I had low expectations going in and was pleasantly surprised. The staff were very nice and efficient. Menu was quite comprehensive but didn't really have any vegetarian/vegan options- kindly the staff were more the happy to amend menu items to suit. The kim chi was super tasty. The hot plates and bowls held the heat very well. And the unlimited... More

When my husband and I came here at around 7:30 pm during the holiday, the place was packed. We were asked to wait 30 min. we went to a cafe across the street and when we came back 45 min later, they seated us immediately. The service is pretty fast here. The interior is so pretty. I wish we would... More

My teenager is obsessed with everything Korean - pop, drama, history, food. Looking around for a weekday lunch place, Sura seemed a good bet. It turned out to be better than that. After a brief wait, my kid and I were seated and offered tea. We ordered the Ra menu - the kid was intent on trying the kimchi pancake... More

We went as a group of five for dinnner and the restaurant was full although it was already about 9pm. The servers are very attentive too. The food comes in big portion, so it's good for sharing. We ordered Bulgogi, Galbi, Japchae, Galbi tang, and the spicy sliced pork. It was sooo good.
