Best Korean food I've ate from Columbia, SC to Raleigh, NC this is hands down the best in the region. Staff is also very friendly and the older lady hostess is hilarious and friendly. My wife loved their food and wanted to try other restaurants around but this one though smaller than the other ones is the best.
Food is good. I'm definitely a repeat eater. Wait staff is super nice. There's an awesome and super sarcastic ajumma there and my friends and I love her! Location is a bit small but that's hardly an issue. Sometimes waits can be long for a table though. Bonus: there's a cool button that calls the waiter over. Not sure if that's a Korean restaurant thing or just at Pepero but it's a nice touch.
Fine selection of Korean foods, plus many Japanese goods. Beautiful cookware and gifts. Excellent produce and frozen goods. Have not yet visited the restaurant, but the smells were delicious!
My son discovered Pepero and hounded me for almost a year to go there with him. it did NOT disappoint! The location is off-putting (a small area inside a Korean grocery) and the service was adequate, but the food was AMAZING! if you haven't heard, Korean food starts off a tiny spicy and build and builds until you're sweating bullets! It was great ingredients, prepared well, and delicious. If you're curious or an aficionado, I strongly recommend you give them a try!
This place is always my favorite little diamond in the rough. Never a bad visit. Friendly and prompt service and absolutely tasty cuisine with generous portions. Always worth the drive. Definitely recommend this little gem for genuine Korean.
