I've only eaten here once but every time I think of that soup, my mouth waters. Excellent and very filling. The small banchan side dishes are to die for... their kimchee is delicious says me...a person who had never taste a kimchi that I liked at all before. I love their kimchee.
And they generously refill the banchans if you want more. Every item is fresh and wonderful.
If you love Korean food like I do, or if you've never tried it, do yourself a favor and go to Gong Dong Tofu House in Palo Alto.
It's worth a special trip for a special treat.
Btw, I am full blooded Irish with no skills at cooking Korean food and a very picky palette. :) Just so you know where I'm coming from.

This is a great family-friendly restaurant. We've been going here for maybe 10 or 20 years. Always seems to be crowded. Great flavors and reasonable prices.
