  • The BEST orange chicken around! And so cheap too!
  • Best Korean food in Iowa, as far as I'm concerned. Try the jambong if you like seafood or teok bokkee if you're a vegetarian.
  • The portions are huge, the food is excellent, the prices are low, and the restaurant is clean!
  • They serve dinner too so if you're stuck at the office late and need a quick good meal stop here.
  • Lunch special = great value. If you get the lunch special to-go, you get so much food that it can be 2 meals!
  • Great food - fast service! Kung Pao beef excellent
  • This place is my favorite Chinese/Korean restaurant. I love the Kung Pow Chicken! The owners are amazingly friendly and owned a restaurant in Korea for 7 years prior. It is legit in my book.
  • Lunch special is really good.
  • Skip the Chinese menu. Order Korean.
  • The $4.95 lunch special is tough to beat.
  • Generous portions and friendly staff. Put this place in the rotation if you work downtown.
  • Sometimes the lady stays open a little past 7pm. If you can catch her, she will gladly make something for you 'to go'. Super friendly too!
  • You can always ask for more rice.
  • Appears the food on the buffet is getting worse.
  • Simply amazing food AND service !
  • Moo goo was good. Wasn't too crazy about the sesame chkn.
  • Great food, very quick and inexpensive! Go for the lunch special.
  • Love the Bulgogi!
