Soondubu: for being on the westside it definitely hit the spot. They also provide vegetarian dishes.
Tofu Ya on Sawtelle has the worst customer service – I've been here twice and the second time, we left because the old man who mistakenly thinks he can greet customers yelled at me and a friend of mine for asking how long is the wait. Food is decent, but I'll never dine here again. Dining and having dinner is suppose to be a pleasant experience not a Jerry Springer show and you're the one being on stage! This place was a horrible experience.
I'm a Regular! – I live around the corner and come about once every other week. I usually get the soon tofu & bulgogi combination to share. It's the perfect portion for 2 people and is under $16. I love all the side dishes & you can ask for more of your favs. There are usually long waits but it's worth it.
Great Cheap eats – Staff was very pleasant, food was delicious and plentiful. Ordered galbi combo, this place is highly recommended.
Loooove it! – I love the tofu here! And it's always so busy so you know it's good. Reasonable prices too!!! Beware: it is so popular there might be a wait...
Average soon tofu, convenient location – I went here with my sister for a late lunch. It wasn't too crowded, but there were a lot of customers. Everything was just average - average food, average service, nothing stood out. I have had much better tasting and quality soon tofu in Koreatown. However, Tofu ya isn't all that bad. The food here is typical Korean food, however it seems to be a little more catered to the non-Korean crowd. The soon tofu chigae I ordered lacked flavor and the side dishes (ban chan) were just mediocre. For me, the fact that it is nearby in my neighborhood when I am craving a little Korean (without treking all the way over to Koreatown) is their highest selling point. Korean food on the westside is limited.
Best Soon Dobu on the Westside!! – This place is YUMMY!!! Why drive all the way to K-town (bcd) when there is Tofu Ya!!! This place is awesome and I wish noone else knew about it so there wouldn't be a huge a$$ line when I went!! The Tofu is not as flavorful as some other tofu establishments, but the sides totally make up for it. The sides are the yummiest!! I love the clear noodles and the little fish cake slices! yum!!!!
Editorial Review – Korean-style, tofu-centric cuisine served in a small, clean and casual eatery.
