Ate the teriyaki brown rice. Asked for the teriyaki on the side but they did not listen. The broccoli served with it was cold. The yaki udon shrimp was tasty. The service was slow. Was difficult to obtain service.

Nice place, very friendly and attentive service. Tempting menu, deep fried korean chicken with garlic chili soy sauce was pretty good, even better if hotter and spicier. Kimchi stew with pork was good.

We stopped for dinner at Davis Square. We loved the ambiance and the excellent service. The food presentation was appealing. So far Mejia was 5 stars. But, The (major) issue was that the chef needs to learn how to use spices. The silken tofu mousse...More
