In town for OSU Commencement. Our family group of 6 had dinner here this past Saturday. This is a good Korean restaurant, and also has very nice selection of sushi and sashimi. We had some of the wonderful sushi and various entrees. Our server made a lot of good recommendations for us, including the Nigori Cream Sake. Everything was great!... More

It is hard to find sushi for lunch on Sunday in Columbus! Many places open at 4 or 5pm, or aren't that great. Or inconvenient location. We stumbled upon this place on High Street for a 1:30 lunch. Wow, were we pleasantly surprised! Rolls were delish, lovely presentation on a wooden boat, we had 5 in our party, got 5... More

Visited with the family for dinner. The space is small but what ticked me off the most was that some dishes have too much of salt in them and others had too little. Very mediocre but pricey Korean food compared to other restaurants around town that are much much cheaper... Service was acceptable.

Okay, this is actually a Korean restaurant with Korean owners, and really good Korean dishes, so the name is a bit of a misnomer, perhaps harking back to a time when Korean food was not as popular in Columbus. Having said this, they do have a number of Japanese dishes as well, including an excellent sushi selection (Japanese style). This... More

I have been going to Japanese Oriental restaurant for 35 years and really love it. However, this NOT a Japanese restaurant, it is a great Korean restaurant. This is the place I first sampled Mandoo and Bulgogi. You can get Bi Bim Bap and Jab Chae and great kimchee. Service is standard, and the prices are pretty reasonable. I like... More

Both cuisines are good here. Provided great service even though they were pretty busy for a Saturday night. Really enjoyed the chirashi (fish was fresh!). And the seafood pancake was delicious. Our new favorite sushi place when on campus.

I've banged around the Korean restaurants of Columbus for years now, looking for the distinctive dishes that are characteristic of each place. You can never find a Korean place that does everything superbly, or at least I've never found one. Each has a specific dish, or perhaps a couple – or, in rare cases, several – that are amazing. That... More
