Very good food for a good price! It is always fresh and fast and the servers are friendly as well. I love to go there especially on a cold winters day. The hot tofu pot warms you so well.

Ate here two days in a row. Seafood soup the best I have had. Excellent flavor, a lot of seafood and goodness. Rice cooked in stone bowl was great. Doesnt get much better than this if you like spicy tofu soup.

The tofu here is very good. The soup is served in different level of spices. If you order the tofu dish, it comes with one pod of rice. The place looks clean and well maintained. definitely worth a try.

They do serve their tofu soup with meat options and they are delicious. Except the sausage version which I was told is just hotdogs.  The soup is served in levels of spiciness from mild white soup to blazing hot red spicy. Like Korean restaurants they serve kimchi and other little bowls of stuff to put in your soup, I usually... More
