This restaurant was recommended to me by a Korean friend, a local Daegu native. The restaurant is fairly large and spacious with comfortable seating and a pleasant ambiance. When the weather is warmer, they open the outside patio for guests to dine en plein air. The menu is in Korean and English. Food is decent. Service is good. Restaurant offers standard Asian fusion fare, including rice, pasta, steak, and pizza dishes. But I think it is the location of the restaurant — on the top floor of a building in a central downtown location — that is its biggest appeal.
Atmosphere (Out of 5)

3 – Food seemed pretty average to me, definitely not bad but also not the most spectacular food I’ve ever had.
