Good food but terrible service – There were two waiters during lunch time, however, one was helping out the kitchen. It ended up only one waiter serving the whole restaurant, but actually he is the owner/cashier.
Long story short, it took a long time to place an order, to have the food and to refill the drink. Since the food was spicy, I ended up to get the drink myself. The service we recieved was very mininal. Then, the owner came to demand for high tip as he said it's not up to the "average". It's not worth to have a good food but treated like a dirt.
Food is good, attitude needs improvement – This is a nice restaurant, with good food and great atmosphere. However, their service was a bit disappointing, so many times the server just walked away while we were placing our order to greet incoming customers. The services we received were at best minimal. When the tip was below the expected amount, the server quickly turned disrespectful of their customers. We hope their services will improve one day and become one of the best Korean restaurants in this area.
Great Korean Food, Neat Tiny Restaurant, Good lunch pricing – I finally tried Vit Goal which had been recommended by friends who seem to know a lot about Korean food. I loved it!
The restaurant is located near the intersection of 55 and 54 in Durham. It is a small place located in a new, clean strip mall with three other ethnic food businesses.
Inside Vit Goal there are maybe 10 or 15 two and four top tables. I went for lunch. Their lunch menu features several "box" lunches that are priced at $6.99. My box lunch was the thinly sliced beef version. It was served on a tray that had four compartments (i.e. boxes). The largest included reasonable amount of thinly sliced beef with a small amount of vegetables. The remaining three boxes included: rice noodles, a small salad and fried dumplings and shrimp.
Some have said that the serving sizes are too small. I think we all know who those people are... The serving sizes are not huge - a dietitian would probably describe them as healthy.
In addition the the tray, my $6.99 lunch included a bowl of rice, a plate of kim chi and a refillable glass of ice tea (Korean-style).
The menu is fairly short. Many of the plates and soups focus on tofu. Some of the people around me eating them and they looked good.
Bottom line: reasonable prices; healthy food; fast service. I can't wait to go again.
