Best Korean Food for me since 2000s! I've had my first Bulgogi bento box here since early 2000s and up until now I still do! You can't beat flavor and the service! Let alone price! They treat u like family! Love this place!

My wife and I stopped in to Orient Express today for lunch. The food was fantastic and the staff were very friendly. It made us very sad to see so few patrons in this restaurant. If you want the best Korean food in town, this is the place.

We enjoyed the food from this place. So authentic and delicious. Side dishes were on point. This will be our go to Korean restaurant whenever we visit Monterey.

Great food, great service. The humble cinder block exterior belies a nice, spacious interior with numerous seating options.

The kimbap here is irresistible with fresh ingredients. Bulgogi was tender and plentiful + the variety of banchans (side dishes) are fantastic. My friend enjoyed the ddukbokki (spicy rice cake) too. I called ahead and they had my order ready to go on time. Will come back for more.

The food here is amazing but I wish they would not pre-judge. I say this because the waiter acted like I had never eaten Korean before and talked to me like I was naive of the choices although I been here many times before. However the food is good and will always return.

Delicious food (especially the kimchi stew), large portions, very reasonable price, 10/10 will come again!Their barley tea is also wonderful!

Visiting Seaside and I was so surprised by this place. Best Korean food I've had in a very long time. Especially compared to any of the options in my home county (which makes me depressed because I'll need to drive 4 hours if I ever want to go here again). Fast service, despite how busy it was. Delicious food. Reasonable prices. I'll definitely be back.

Great food! I just wish they deliver!!!


People of Seaside, take note!! You have an incredible Korean BBQ restaurant that if it were in MY town, I’d go here once a week. My husband and I were on vacation, leaving town when we decided to stop and have lunch. Very random (no Yelp or TA precheck) but went inside about 1:30pm on a Wednesday, nobody there. The owner (?) server/hostess brought us menus, our drinks, answered our questions about the entrees and we both ordered their lunch ‘box’ - me, BBQ Chicken with Spicy sauce- husband, BBQ Pork with Spicy Sauce. Miso soup to start. YUM YUM YUM. Attractively served, fresh salad w/lightly sweetened dressing, perfect sticky rice and a generous helping of the most wonderful, delectable, seasoned chicken I’ve had in the last 10 years. Great service, cool/hip/retro pink booths, lots of parking AND AMAZING FOOD! Go there ASAP, you won’t be sorry!
