On this night, it was only my sole dining companion and I and as a result, we only opted for 2 dishes.
buldak (heavily-seasoned spicy chicken) and the other, a heaping and generous plate of jap chae. I had read several reviews that the name, Red Chicken, had originated from their specialty, buldak (which was literally, red chicken). I was well aware that if you happen to have a heavy palate for all-things-spicy, this was a must-try. I, personally like spicy, but not too spicy. Regardless, I was curious to see what the hype was all about.
** I must note that the photo to the top is of the side dishes you would usually be given, prior to the arrival of your entrees and appies. Pictured above from (top left) and going clockwise are: kimchi, scoop of potato salad, several pieces of cooked broccoli (with korean sweet spicy sauce drizzled atop) and lastly, marinated bean sprouts. Different korean restaurants may choose to serve diff. types of items in the side dishes.

Prompt and the server allowed for separate bills (even though we had a group of 20+). You know that's always a good thing!
Food prices were reasonable although drink prices are a little high ($9 for a cocktail).
Hip hip happenin'!
Yay: Always a good choice for drinks (and grub!) if you're in and around Main Street. Above average lounge/bar fare is a bonus.
Nay: Always bustlin' with customers whenever I'm there. Could be a bit of a wait come peak periods.
** Interesting Fact: Habit Lounge next door is their sibling restaurant!

Ok -not the greatest. Had to remind the server for our drinks and she was absent at times when needed. Only one server was working that night.
On par with the prices you would see at other Thai restaurants. Nothing out of the ordinary.
Small, cozy restaurant with Thai melodies playing in the background.
Yay: Go for the Prawn & Crab (and cream cheese!) Spring Rolls.
Nay: Service is slow - only one server for the whole restaurant on a Saturday night. Average Thai fare - nothing special.

brunch and art? i'll take it...!
Our server was kind, genuine and serene. No complaints there.
Pleasant and peaceful.
Definitely a great go-to brunch joint if you're in (or even, out of) the area. The Brioche French Toast is a stand-out, as well.
Yay: Great place for weekend brunch - the art is a bonus. It doesn't get very busy either (even during peak brunch times.)
Nay: They didn't have KETCHUP this (2nd) visit!...How could you serve potatoes and not have ketchup? As well, if it does happen to get busy, waiting periods may be lengthy. Not the ideal place for large groups.
