My wife and I frequently visit Rochester on business. We attend meetings during the day and enjoy fine dining in the evenings with our close friends from the area. Recently they suggested what they said was a very good Korean Restaurant they had enjoyed many times in the past. Everything was as good as they said it would be. The... More

My tongue did backflips of joy as the food graves this mouth! I don't think I could be happier with my choices! I will definitely say that I can't remember the name of the foods that I ordered because it was so good I got food amnesia! However it was beef and chicken of some sort! But get whatever you're...

My husband, son and I recently visited Sodam on a visit to see my son at college, and the food was so delicious I snuck back on my own for lunch the next day. Ignore that from outside, it looks as if you will be dining in a warehouse - it's casual inside but pleasant. We had the dolsot-bibimbob, the... More

I travelled to Korea before, and the food at Sodam seemed familiar. The sauces were very delicious. The food was served quickly and very hot. The appetizers were presented properly in small plates. The restaurant itself isn't too fancy, but the food is certainly worth it.

I have been going to this incredible Korean restaurant for many years. I had a Korean interpreter in Vietnam in 1970-71 and loved the food. And I have never been disappointed in the food at Sodom. Good service, reasonable prices and a great selection of meal choices. Often our table is the only none asian table in a packed restaurant.... More

Food was just okay; owner was extremely nice and service prompt but was disappointed with the food. Will be going back to Young's Korean.

I come here often as I love the Dot Sot Bi Bi Bap! The portion is very hearty and I always leave full! Sometimes we get the kimchee pancake and that is just very satisfying as well. This is my go to place for my Korean fix! I prefer it more than Seoul House as they are in the same... More

I've been to Sodam Korean 20+ times. No doubt it's a best secret in the Rochester area. Lunch or dinner is served efficiently and with a smile by the staff. The food is just great. It keeps us going back.

Sodam is not easy to find, tucked away in an industrial-looking building next to Lori's Natural Foods in the Genesee Regional Market, but worth the effort. This is not a fancy place but the food is very good. Bulgogi (many types) can't be beat. I have found the service to be spotty, but not because the servers aren't dedicated, but... More
