Cho Dang Gol

Excellent, low-price place. The classic stone bowl bibimbap was fantastic. All the banchan were great (side dishes consisting of either meat, vegetables, tofu, fish, eggs or beans and many of them pickled). This was a super find and we highly recommend it. Lunch was $60 for three of us.

Cho Dang Gol is my favorite Korean restaurant in town. I've taken all of my friends (both fellow Koreans and non-Koreans) to this place and have yet to find anyone who didn't love it. The best thing about Cho Dang Gol is its banchan (side dishes). One can always tell the authenticity of a Korean restaurant by its banchan, and Cho Dang Gol's banchan tastes absolutely home-made. Honestly, the mackerel alone is worth going back for! The seafood pancake appetizer (haemul pajun) is excellent and big enough to feed four people. The spicy tofu stews induce a feeling of profound contentment. The complimentary citrus-ginger-cinnamon tea finishes off the meal beautifully. Delicious!

This place is just great! I'm so glad that this place exists. The side dishes and everything else are excellent. Even though they don't have do it yourself barbeque, Kalbi is super yummy. Don't forget to make a reservation on the weekends to avoid long long waits.

I think Cho Dang Gol is the best Korean restaurant in K-town. Their food is very healthy without sacrificing taste at all. I love thier Kam Ja Jeon, Cho Dang Gol Ssam Bab, and Oh Jing Uh Bok Um. Thier homemade tofu is very dense and tastes almost nutty. I took lots of friends from lots of different countries there, and they loved all menus so much that all of them became regulars. Very recommended!

Cho Dang Gol is not your typical new york korean restaurant. There is an elegance and artfulness to the food. It is "country style" food. Their tofu dishes are wonderful, and you can really taste that their tofu is superior. They have the best rice, which doesn't sound like a big deal, but you notice it, and it comes in a hot stone pot, which you can request them to pour hot tea in and you have a nice treat waiting at the end of your meal. This restaurant puts care into their food. Highly recommeded. They have soul.

I brought my six and eight year old girls to this restaurant. The waterfalls are beautiful and I recommend sitting on the second floor. Live music starts at 8pm and the service was delightful. We ordered Korean barbeque and other great stuff. Everyone was stuffed and it was very very nice.

I love this place. It's a nice change from the crowded Korean restaurants on 32nd St., being slightly less crowded, the waiters pay more attention to you, and the food is good too. They mostly specialize in tofu dishes, and pork dishes. The tofu is great, try getting the Kimchi tofu stew there, that's one of my favorites. A nice place for Koreans to go (I am Korean), and also nice for treating someone to Korean food for the first time.
