My absolute favorite spot in the area. For those who enjoy Korean food this is the real deal. The rotating selection of various kimchi is always excellent. From single vegetable ferments to more traditional options all are made in-house. Beyond that fish and sizzling plate dishes have all been excellent. The atmosphere is that of a neighborhood restaurant. No pretension... More

Stopped in for lunch with friends, after visiting the gallery nearby. What a treat! The owner, Chong, is also chef/waitress/hostess and probably bottle washer too! She does the pickling of the kimchee (notice the large rocks under the hostess desk for weighting down the cabbage in the crocks), and preps all of the other items on the menu. She is... More

I've always enjoyed the food here, and have never had a problem with the service. The owner (Chong) makes tasty dishes, cooked to order. It's a small restaurant, and she's often doing it all: taking orders, cooking dishes, waiting tables, & answering the phone. My favorites are the dolsot bibimbap, kimchi pancake, and almost anything cooked on a stone platter.... More

Small restaurant specializing in Korean food. dining area could use a makeover, but don't let that stop you. The food is wonderful, all cooked to order, and many dishes served on HOT sizzling stone platers. I go there about once a month. Dishes to try, though all I've ever had were good. (spelling may be off a bit) dolset bibimbap... More

We can walk to this place from our apartment but we will never go back. The waitress I guess is the owner and first of all she yelled at my SO that he didn't order quick enough then food was very meh. She literally chased us onto the street demanding a bigger tip after really rude service....no never again.

My husband and I crave Korean food once in a while and we will visit Little Pusan for that Korean food fix. We order the bibimbab in the stone pot (rice with mixed vegetables or choice of beef), dukpoki (spicy rice cakes) and kalbi (marinated beef short ribs).All dishes come with banchan (side dishes) All of the food is pretty...

It has gotten to the point that she knows my name when I call. The woman who works there (owner?) is hilarious, but I can see why she might be off-putting to some. It's part of the experience. So I guess I would say it's only for people who have a good sense of humor. Since it's summer we're getting... More

Pork Bulgogi on sizzling hot plate - meat was dry, overcooked Beef chap Che - beef was dry and tough, not much flavor.

I dont know when it happened but somehow I came to love Korean food. My family has rediscovered Little Pusan, especially since the menu has more "chicken" dishes. There is something about the place that takes me to a side street in Korea and eating from hot stone dishware takes me back 400 yrs. The food is delicious. Understand that... More

FIrst of all, I love reading the reviews to this place! It seems that most people who give a bad review are pretty high maintenance. We go here a lot and love the owner! You just have to think of it as part of the character of the place. You've got to love when she comes to the table and... More
