So good to eat in a mom and pop, in this case husband and wife restaurant. So careful to detail and to the enjoyment of the customer. It is a small place but well worth going to. Real authentic Korean dishes, not seen on chain like Korean restaurants. The map shown on the review is wrong, way wrong, so do not go by that. Also, it is not right on Surawong Rd. If walking up Surawong, as you pass Jim Thompson restaurant, take a left at the red light. It will be down on your left near the 7-11. Truly good food, wonderful service, and quaint atmosphere. Prices are reasonable. I believe one step up, so wheelchair accessible possible.

I'm Korean myself. Me and my sister have been traveling for months, we missed K food so went to this place

The restaurant itself is quite cute and cozy. On menu we could find so many different Korean dishes, which had me quite surprised.
We ordered Spicy tofu soup, gimbap, bibimbap with spicy pork, and steamed egg pot. All dishes were yummy, there was a bit too much sugar and salt for my personal liking but I wasn't disappointed. I felt I was having dinner somewhere in Seoul, so it was a success!
Plus, the price was very reasonable as well.

Recommend to those who want to enjoy authentic home cooked style Korean food.

June0326님 안녕하세요. 답변이 많이 늦었지만 지금이라도 시간 내셔서 리뷰를 작성해주셔서 감사드려요. 다른 나라를 포함해 태국에서도 많은 좋은 추억 많드셨기를 바라며 늦었지만 감사인사 드려요. 작년에 오셨을때보다는 음식맛에 더 많이 신경써서 한국에서 먹는 음식 맛과 비슷하게 만들었고 조만간 다시 메뉴 리뉴얼도 할 예정이에요. 더욱더 노력하는 더밥이 되겠습니다. 좋은 하루돼세요.
