    Addicted!

    I love this place... All I need to say is that I was just there on Friday and today is Tuesday and I'm going back again!! I can't even count how many times I have been there. The Kalbi is awesome. I would definitely recommend this place to everyone I know. The cozy atmosphere really makes Dok Suni stand out.

    Tip optional?

    Food was really good, the jap-chae and the bulgogi, sooo good, but when my friend and i went we just came from california, we left a tip of 15% and when we were leaving, just right outside the restaurant, the hostess runs after us and tells us we need to leave a 18% tip, how whack is that? Isn't tip considered kind of optional?

    If the food is so bad, why do reviewers give this place high ratings? This place does a decent job. Some say it's authentic, some say it's not. All I know is I like the food enough to come back regularly and I haven't found another place that's better in the neighborhood. I have no problems recommending this place and I give it high marks.

    Not recommended

    As a true 100% Korean, Dok Suni serves pseudo korean food at high prices. If you want authentic Korean food, I suggest going to 32nd st. or Flushing. The complicated and intricated flavors aren't quite there. Their dumplings are from a package (not even one of the better packaged dumplings) that you can get in any Korean store. I understand that most authentic Korean restaurants don't have ambience and this does have charm. The Kimchi kimbab (1 of the korean version of sushi) should be seasoned rice with flavored filling which gives it its unique taste. Their version is bland, espcecially if you've ever tasted the ture kimchi kimbab). The duk boki - rice cakes in spicy sauce was just incredibly spicy. No other flavors could be found. The bibim bap was mediocre at the best but the is best out of the choices. While I understand that ethnic foods can be slightly altered to adhere to the Westerner's taste, Dok Suni can do better by bridging the gap between true korean taste and American fusion.

    Love the food

    Love the kimchi pancakes, bulgogi and kalbi. I go there more often now that it has gotten less crowded. You don't have to speak broken English to serve authentic Korean food or any kind of ethnic food for that matter. That's a reflection of stereotypical bias from a previous reviewer.

    Not Authentic?! I grew up on this...

    Being Korean and growing up on Korean food - I can say truely say that going to Dok Suni is like revisiting my childhood. The Bulgogi tastes just like what my father and mother would cook. Highly recomended. Only complaints would be that it's sometimes too crowded and that they only accept cash.
