Good Korean Food - But Nothing FancyGood Korean food, but not as good as Hoban in Eagan. Their prices were OK, but the atmosphere leaves something to be desired. Their booths are kinda tall and not very comfortable. The service was OK, but I got the impression they didn't really want to be bothered ! We arrived around 1:20pm on a Friday and it seemed to be an imposition to the staff.
Best place for Korean!I have been going to this place literally since I have been born and i am now 20. The service is friendly. It is not a fancy place but a comfortable place. Aside my moms Korean cooking it is the best place that one can go.
Good Solid Korean FoodI highly recommend Mirror of Korea. I wanted to write a more updated post of the food and atmosphere as over summer '08, Mirror of Korea has remodeled. The place actually offers a comforting, more modern ambience and the walls and restaurant itself are less bare-cafe like, and more updated and inviting. Not only that, but the parents have retired from cooking and the "lone Korean-mom server" now does the cooking and they have at least 2-3 people on as waitstaff. They are most likely Korean students attending Hamline.
Not quite what we were hoping for.We were really excited to go get some Korean food and we wanted to try something new, we mostly go to Hoban in Eagan, but we were left unsatisfied and poor. The service was good, our water was kept full the whole time and we had plenty of rice and sides. The atmosphere was nice, there was some Korean hip hop on in the background which was pretty cool. The server was nice and our food cam out quite quickly, but we did go at 4 on a Saturday so there was only one other table in the restaurant. Our food was not what we were hoping for, We got the Bulgogi- it was a little dry and there was not much sauce on it, it didn't taste like much. We also got the Kalbi and there was very little meat on the bones. The ribs had more fat than meat on almost every piece, but the sauce was very good on these. We ended up spending 43$ with tip for these dishes and a soda and left wishing we would have just gone to Chipotle instead.
Good galbiI don't know authentic Korean food, but I have eaten at a lot of Korean restaurants in America, and this one has the best galbi.
Just great food.If you want to frequent an independent restaurant that has great healthy yummy food, and plenty of it, this is the place. Wonderful owner, I think she inherited it from her parents. You get a bunch of little bowls of different foods with your main dish. If you are a vegetarian, get the bi bim bap with no meat. And if you love meat, get it with.
