I've been a loyal customer of Choga for many years, and I'm so happy I live in the neighborhood so that I can enjoy their delicious, authentic Korean food. The service is impeccable and the dishes remind me of home.. oh, and not to mention reasonably priced. All around great Korean spot. Try it; you won't be disappointed.

I went out to eat at Choga along with my class (our teacher took us out) and the atmosphere was really nice, a bit dark but it had a very laid back feel to it. The food was good as well and everyone was served miso soup along with several banchan (or appetizers), which were all fine. Everything was great until the entrees were brought out. I ordered chicken bulgolgi from the menu and I had to wait and watch for ~30 min while everyone had their entrees served to them except me, I was completely forgotten. (everyone was served individually, weird) When we informed the waiter, she was very apologetic, but it doesn't take away from the fact that I was served 10 minutes before we had to leave. I ended up taking my food to go and eating most of it later. En fin, the bottom of my bulgogi was burnt (though still good) and one of my classmates was never served water. However, we were a large group (15) but that's no excuse for the terrible service.

Finally!! I've been looking for a place that serves Korean food that is not "fusion"... And this place has good authentic flavors! Refreshing. Prices are moderate and food is good. I actually had delivery so I can't say much about service or atmosphere but definitely will order from here again. Gave equal rating for each although in my case didn't apply because I enjoyed the food. MUCH better than others around Washinton Park area... Would name names but feeling nice after a good dinner! -) Hope you all enjoy..

My four girlfriends and I had a joint birthday dinner here a few weeks ago and had a wonderful experience. We went with a total of 12 people, and ordered several of the Korean dishes and sushi as well. They were really accomodating even making sweet potato tempura sushi for me because I am a vegetarian. We had a really raucous bunch, but they were very gracious and helpful. We got different kinds of sake and soju, the watermelon flavored kind was awesome. All in all, a great place, I would definitely go back.

Choga is in the heart of busy village scene and by now a sort of a land mark. food is usually consistent in taste and they cater to a moderately americanized korean taste buds. over all not a bad place to have dinner but the owner could better manage the servicing staff. changing the menu once in a while would also help. side dishes are adequate but not extravagant compared to other korean restaurants. better than average is my rating.

My husband and I have been there a couple of times because of the sushi. Great taste and variety. Waiter didn't speak English very well and it was a little difficult to communicate with him. Because of this we ordered something that was not what we expected but they changed without a problem. Prices are ok.

I used to go to Choga when I used to go to at NYU. Considering that I rarely went home for homemade Korean food by my mom, Choga was my default when I couldn't push myself to go all the way to Korea Town. Their Hae Dup Bab, aka sashimi and rice and lettuce w/spicy sauce is always fresh from the sushi bar, it's my favorite dish when I'm in the mood for sashimi. Their Yuk Gae Jang is really spicy and so if you're decongested that'll do the trick. Although you can ask them to moderate the spices. And considering the consistent music selection of 80s classic rock and pop, it's a great place to go w/friends. The prices have gone up but the food's the same great quality.
