My wife and I tried Gorikee for the first time last night. I have seen many laudatory postings here about it and lately some that have said it was hyped too much and was just a simple neighborhood restaurant. So, we were not expecting too much, but we were very pleasantly surprised. If this is just a simple neighborhood restaurant, I would like to know which neighborhood. We live in Encino where the restaurants go from bad to worse.
My wife had the crispy garlic chicken and I had the rib eye. The rib eye was excellent, but the chicken was beyond excellent in our opinion. As others have pointed out, the greeting and service are very warm. Ella, who served us, was wonderful.
We would highly recommend this place for a casual but finely prepared and served meal.
