Ha Dong House is a Korean restaurant on 2104 Viers Mill Rd. in Rockville, Maryland.
Cost – $$
Service – B
Korean restaurants aren’t normally known for their service…until you try to say a few words in Korean! Then they’ll warm up to you and start joking around with you. Ha Dong is no different. If you’re a Miguk then pick up a few words before you go and it will change the dynamics of your service there.
Food – B+
Although the food isn’t out of this world, it is pretty solid by DC-area standards. I’ve had the Kim Chi Jigge, the Kalbi, Bulgogi and it is all quite good.
Decor – C
Remember – we are talking about Rockville. It is a pretty Korean-style place, which means fairly basic but clean.
Ha Dong is a fun place to go, especially if you are in a large group and plan on drinking a great deal of soju.

I guess Rockville is something like Korea town in Maryland though, because they all seemed to be consolidated in this area. Full Article…
