Seoul 116 has proven popular thus far, with a 4.5-star rating out of 15 reviews on Yelp.

Linda H., who was among the first Yelpers to review the new spot on May 10, said, "This place has great food, Korean music and a laid- back, hip ambiance. The churros were warm, crispy and chewy and complemented the green tea ice cream. They have a full bar and mixed drinks in Capri Sun-styled bags."

And Ron W. said, "I stopped in on their opening evening and tried out a fun cast-iron roast corn and cheese appetizer, a wonderful spicy pork slider along with some Korean fried chicken. Everything was well prepared, albeit a bit sweet but maybe that was just my choices! The space is modern and a bit industrial."

With a 3.5-star rating out of nine reviews on Yelp, the restaurant is still finding its way, but it's early days yet.

Chelsea M., who was among the first Yelpers to review the new spot on May 24, said, "I had the wontons in hot chili oil and the Dan Dan Mian. Both of these dishes were excellent. The noodles are made there and made fresh. The meat in the Dan Dan Mian was cooked perfectly. If you order the wontons by yourself, just order those. They are very filling."

And Mike B. said, "Small, clean venue -- the atmosphere is open and modern. The large glass windows make for great people watching as well. So far I have only tried the beef pho but it was tasty and just needed a little help from the table condiments."
