9 of us drove to eat at Korean BBQ, in Korea town, that took us about 10 min or so to arrive to. If your in such a large group I suggest breaking it up in two to be seated much faster, also read rules as restuarant we sat at charged for meat left over by the pound? We also ended choosing the 9.99 menue each and somehow ended up paying a $20 gratuity fee, that unless it was written in Korean we did not know about prior, nor told about. This turned out to be less than what we normally would have tipped., hidden fees are just not fun.

It was just O.K. - I was disappointed that the Nutcracker remained a doll throughout the entire performance. He usually comes to life & participates in the dream, as all of the other characters & animals do. Only the main "prince" was priceless...continued

Enjoyed the mesmerizing experience of the Marat Daukayev Nutcracker ballet. Beautiful choreography and expert performance. Would definitely see again yearly with different themes.
