I went there for lunch because Plaza Mayor was full. I was on my lunch break. I thought what the heck, I'll eat here. Paid 15 dollars for lunch. Food was ridiculously bad. Place looks rundown, like no one has done anything in the last 15 years to it. Even the fishtank looks sad. I mean come on, at least change the water every once in a while. Won't be going back again.

Its not often that you find good cuisine from another country unless you are in that country. Little Seoul is different. Genuinely tastes like authentic Korean food. Homemade kimchi was excellent!

This place has remained quality a long time and was one of the first restaurants in Costa Rica with Sushi on the menu. But, it's a Korean joint so you got to order the Bulgogi.
It's the best, the real deal not some PF Changs frozen, zip pouch. Kim Chee and other essentials served up as guessed. It's great to visit a favorite restaurant and see nothing has changed.

We went to this restaurant for sushi, not Korean food. The sushi was of good quality, fresh fish and the miso soup as well as the seaweed salad were excellent. The sushi was well prepared and the fish was fresh. If in San Jose and wishing to have sushi, highly recommend this place. Service was a little slow but worth the wait.
