We were there today, we like Korean food and always like to try new places. I am sorry to say that we didn't like it. We were there for an early light dinner, for three, dd, dh, and me, we ordered a dinner combo (39.99) and a dumpling soup (9.99). We also ordered hot tea and iced water. First thing at our table was our drinks, after that we got the side dishes, please see photos. Small plate of rice noodles, Kimchi which was bland, not very flavorful. Small plate with three slices of plain cucumber, usually at other places we've been the cucumber is very good, never just plain. Small dish with plain bean sprouts, along with the other things you can see in the photos. After that we got our meat, frozen thin slices of non-marinated beef, and short rib meat. Extremely small portion, for 39.99 I was expecting more than that. The server turned on the cooking table, and we waited until it got hot enough to cook our meat, no flavor at all, and not very lean. We were never served the soup that was mentioned in the menu description of the combo. Also no rice, until we asked. Then we got the dumpling soup, it looked like a big mess, the dumplings came apart, and was like wonton skin soup, with lots of egg. After this the waiter almost disappeared, no more water, no more hot tea.
We didn't have a good time! There were not busy, only one other table was occupied. There were a couple of women/waitress?, a young man at the register, an older man, and our waiter. They were all gathered by the register, our waiter kept receiving cell phone calls, and that kept him busy, so busy that he forgot about his customers. Our cook top was greasy with some scraps of food in the bottom of the plate, maybe from the previous customer, and this is a new place.
We left with a check of about 65.00. Money is not really an issue, but I was really expecting more. We won't be back! There are better choices around. Sorry I can't recommend Shik Do Rak in Northridge.
