Charcol BBQ ftw.
Unique charcol grill to bring out the meat flavor.
All the meat there is fresh!
The servers are awesome!
So much variety in the side dishes!
The cold noodles are really good too.
Reminds me of LA style Korean BBQ Restaurants.
As authentic as it gets.
Worst Korean Food and Service. Second time going there. First time food was horrible and service was non-existent. Second time we ordered an octopus stew and it was so salty and inedible that even the waitress admitted but wouldn't take it off the bill. I'm going to stop going to Korean restaurants. It's a cultural and attitude problem with doing any business with them.
Editorial Review. Korean restaurant located in a Shoreline strip mall is the only spot in Seattle that has table-top charcoal grills; barbecue many different items including kalbi, bulgogi and vegetables.
Good food, NONEXISTENT SERVICE!. Good tasting food. No service at all! We left after an hour and a half, without finishing our meal because no one would service our table. The flame on our grill went out and we couldn't finish cooking our food. Then the waiter argued with us because we didn't want to pay for the uncooked food. I would not recommend this place to anyone...
Great Spicy Cold Noodles. Stick to what OTKV does best which is spicy cold noodles. The banchan is merely average and they only offer about 6 different small plates which is below the norm for most Korean restaurants. Tofu stew and barbeque are average or above average. You can get better tofu stew at Hosoonyi and better barbeque across the street at Hae Nam Galbi. Their Pae Jun (Korean seafood pancake) is pretty good and can hold it's own with other places. However, if you are in the mood for a large bowl of spicy cold noodles, Old Town does this traditional Korean dish the best in the area. The decor is much improved after new ownership with new high quality flat screen TV's.
Worst Korean restaurant ever & not worth your $$ or least my $$. I saw the review on this restaurant on Korean newspaper and made an addition trip out there from Lake Stevens. Me & my husband went there on Sunday around lunch time. It was pretty busy but we were willing to wait for a good food. Well.... Service was bad (waiting time & had to wave my hand at them to get an attention), Panchan(side dishes) were low qualities and above all Kimchi was horriable (my mom always told me to try Kimchi first. If Kimchi doesn't taste good, more likely the food isn't good. And I really hate to say this but my mom was sooo RIGHT!!). We ordered two different Kalbi which costed us little over $55. Kalbi was pretty bad. No flavor & too fatty... Looks like they used low quality meat. I was so upset the fact the review was so wrong, food was horrible (I could make it better) and felt I just wasted my money on bad food. On the way home my husband had to stopped by a Korean Restaurant name "New Seoul" on HWY 99 to fullfill my satisfaction to have second Korean meal. Old Village might be good on other Korean food but I won't go back to even give them another chance...
My fiance and I were wanting to try a Korean restaurant out here. So we went over to Old Village.
I'm so GLAD that we did. The place was so clean and had a great ambiance. We arrive at about 5:45 on Friday evening, and thank goodness that we went at that time. About 15 mins after we got there, it go very packed! We opted for the BBQ dinner, and what a delightful experience. We ordered two beef items. It was quite enough for the two of us.And a appetizer . The waiter brought us our traditional side dishes of pickled vegetables, kimchee, tofu, and other items, and a big salad !!! It was like a buffet of side dishes. Well the waiter brings out the tray of items and starts you off, and we finish the rest. It was fun to cook at the table. The meat was perfectly marinated!!! If you want rice, you need to ask them when you place your order, or you will need to ring the bell for table service, which is a nice touch also. They are also very attentive to replenishing your side dishes, as soon as you finish them. If you're expecting to be waited on immediately, you will not find that here. Hence why you need to ring the bell! I am def. coming back here again!! Highly recommended!! Great family or date experience.
Best Korean food in the town. This restaurant is the best Korean restaurant in the town. They have good food and service. I highly recommend here for dinner.
Yummiest Korean, Great Service. My roomate and I are Korean food junkies so when we stumbled upon the Old Village Restaurant, we were thrilled. The service was excellent (we love the waiter Bo who works there almost every night). The panchan (side dishes) flow freely and the food comes out quick, hot, and affordable. Plus their Soju (korean vodka) goes great with all the dishes. We have made going there, our Friday night ritual. I would recommend this place to newbies and expert Korean food eaters. Its a little hard to find but once you do, it's PHENOMENAL!!!
very very good.
