    Such a great meal! Ordered two starters and shared the ssam platter between two people and it was the perfect amount. Service was great and drinks were delicious

    I've been here 3 times so far and the food does not disappoint! It gives a modern and elevated take on Korean food and my Korean partner approves as well. For food recommendations, I highly recommend getting a ssam platter. It feeds 2-3 people (or maybe 1 very hungry person) and it's paired with 3 very unique sauces, 2 types of radish dishes and some lettuce. The ssam platters always feel balanced and you're guaranteed to be rotating through the sauces to decide which one is your favourite. I've also tried some of the small platters such as the beef tartare, and the chicken wings. Definitely surprised me, i've noticed a lot of their small platters involve stuff stuffed into other stuff (in a good way!). Either way they're packed full of flavour no matter what you pick! I've only tried one medium platter and it's the Mushroom Jook. As someone who loves mushroom, this was right up my alley for flavour. But, I will say it's a little too salty after a few bites. The inside is very intimate and the noise levels vary depending on who you're sitting next to, the upper lever is only available for dinner but tends to be smaller groups in an intimate setting whereas the lower level seems to be a lot of bigger groups of business dinners that are chattier. The washrooms are also spacious and clean! The service is professional and I appreciate that they take away everything after each course so you're refreshed with a new set for the next meal. I think one of the servers is starting to recognize me too haha. Love this place! I recommend it to anyone who's never been who wants a good elevated meal without spending loads.

    First time at 156 Cumberland. The food was as advertised, very nuanced, well seasoned and delicious. The server we had (didn’t get his name) was a gem, very helpful and patient with our ordering and looking after our needs. The main criticism of this restaurant was the sound level. Yes it was energetic but it was very challenging to hear my companion sitting across from me. For the life of me, I’ve no idea why successful restaurants refuse to put up acoustic treatment to make holding a conversation easier. This isn’t a bar, it’s a restaurant… I expect better acoustics so I can enjoy the conversation as well as the food. Yes I’ll go back, but I’ll try to sit outside.

    The food was lovely but we were disappointed in the very limited choices in beverages. Almost no authentic Korean drinks, and very few (and not particularly food friendly) wines by the glass. Service outstanding; table in a poor location.
