I love this place and come here often with my family. That said, it pains me to take two stars off because of an incident that took place when I went there on Sunday (6/25) with my family, among whom were my grandparents visiting from Korea.

Before I go on to explain what happened, please don't take this review as a reason not to visit this place. I highly recommend the restaurant because their food is excellent (almost as good as my mom's cooking, haha) and besides the one rude waitress we had to deal with, the service here is quick, attentive and overall, fantastic.

Nothing happened while we were waiting and eating our meal. It's what happened afterwards that ticked my family and I off.

We finish our meal and had a good time. My grandfather paid for the meal with the intention of leaving a 25% tip behind AFTER we got our change back (we usually leave 20% no matter where we go, but the service was really good that day). Before the incident, we had a really good experience thanks to the two older waitresses (roughly in their 50s, I'm guessing) who tended to our every need. The three stars are for them and the good food.

The rude waitress, who brought back our change, was relatively young (I'd guess somewhere in her mid to late 30s, or maybe even early 40s) compared to the other two and tied up the front part of her hair in a way that is reminscent of ancient samurai hair. She rudely tossed the change on the table, saying in Korean what is essentially, 'Way to leave tip.' That was an incredibly and unnecessarily rude way to treat not just a group of people who intended to leave behind tip, but also an elderly man who did nothing to deserve this type of treatment. My dad confronted the woman about her behavior, though of course she would protest despite having my family (a group of 6) and the next table (a group of 4) witness her rude behavior. We ended up leaving 20% instead of 25% and specifically told the manager to not give the rude waitress any part of the tip, that all of the tip had to go the two waitresses who treated us so well. One of the older waitresses came by and apologized on the rude one's behalf even though it wasn't her fault. Two stars taken away because of this one waitress. In no way is it the restaurant's and other waitresses' fault for having such a crabby employee/coworker. She should fix her attitude or at least leave it at the door if she doesn't want to ruin the experiences of other customers.

I hate taking stars away when I leave reviews because I want businesses like this one to succeed. This place specifically is a family favorite because it is the closest it comes to the ox bone soup and cold noodles that my grandmother and mom used to make when we were little. I'm a little upset that one rude waitress essentially ruined what would've been an otherwise amazing experience with delicious food and otherwise excellent service.

Serving the beef oxtail soup that you can't find in many Korean restaurants. Simple menu but definitely good eat. Watch out for the wait. So come early.

There's only 11 dishes on the menu. Number 11 is a must get. Giant spicy best chop. You need at least three people to finish it off. That dish is so good it's like comparing Obama to Trump. The line gets long but it usually moves pretty fast. And number 11 is definitely worth the wait!
