A “wonderful respite” in “honky-tonk” K-town, this “transporting” Korean provides “exquisite” vegan fare that tastes even better in its “Zen-like atmosphere” ; “knowledgeable” service is also part of the “relaxing” package, but “be willing to take your shoes off” – it’s a “requirement” here.

Excellent service, food, and one-of-a-kind atmosphere! Loved taking off our shoes as we entered to sit low to the ground. Felt incredibly authentic and was very calming. The food was outstanding. The dumpling soup was very tasty - incredibly complex tasting broth for a vegan soup. The avocado rice bowl was served sizzling in a stone bowl, generous portion, and was super delicious. For dessert, the sweet red bean soy ice cream was mouth-watering, a dessert you can't find everywhere. The mocha chocolate cake was also excellent. Overall, I highly recommend making reservations here. Do note that the menu is somewhat pricey and there are "rules" (beside no shoes) at dinner: everyone must order at least $20 worth of food and for larger parties, I think of five or more, everyone must order $25 worth of food. You can split the bill among three credit cards at most. Yes it's expensive, but I think it's worth it for the unique dining experience.

My daughter and I had dinner at Hangawi yesterday. Everything was so amazing. The staff was attentive and pleasant at the entrance. Our servers was very nice and explained everything to us. The service was prompt, and all of dishes were delicious. I cannot wait to go back.

What a nice place. It has a very relaxing atmosphere. The food is amazing and the staff is very friendly. I recommend the tasting menu to full experience the korean food. Will definitely go back.
