Good food, friendly staff

Jae's is tasty Asian fusion. It did not give off very authentic vibes for traditional Korean restaurants but the service was friendly and fast and tasty

Nice atmosphere, great food and friendly staff.

Violetta, April 8, 2019

The food was nice, but the prices were expensive for the area - I noticed there weren't many younger people in there, which I think is related.

Jana, February 20, 2019

Great food, nice vibe and friendly people and services!

Tom, February 16, 2019

The food was solidly good, and our waitress was very nice. It was somewhere I'm glad I've tried but that I wouldn't feel like I need to go back to right away -- it is a little out of my way

Lesley, February 15, 2019

Very yummy Korean food!

Tesh, February 11, 2019

The staff was very attentive and accomodating. The food was very tasty and the price was a good fit for the quality.

Quanquan, February 11, 2019

The best tasting Pad Thai that we've had in a long time. Fried rice with mango and beef was also delicious.

Mitch, February 9, 2019

Meju is now called Jae's Cafe, in case anyone is wondering. The ambience is welcoming and fresh. The wait staff were all courteous to me and I saw similar treatment on other tables. The food was a bit slow in coming out. And it was the usual Korean/Asian fare. Good food, but I can't say anything was spectacular. It is good for an evening hangout with friends or family.

Rose, February 9, 2019

Good service.

Katie, February 8, 2019

Bibimbap was so tasty!

Adam, February 5, 2019

Service was great, especially for someone like me who had only had Korean food once before. We had a tasty meal, and the restaurant is lovely. We'll go back.

Kelly, February 2, 2019

Meiju is a nice space and atmosphere, but it's not what I would call standout food. The food is decent, but there are better options for Korean food in the area. I've eaten there several times, and found the food is hit-or-miss. I think maybe their ingredients are not as fresh as they should be. Certainly not spoiled, but not at their best. I noticed this especially with calamari in a seafood pancake.

Martin, January 30, 2019

Excellent food, drinks, and service. We got the spicy pork buns and the chili garlic wings to start, and both were incredible - especially the crispy wings! For entrees, the bipimbap is delicious - I got crispy tofu, and it was so filling and delicious, I ate the leftovers for breakfast the next morning. I also loved my lychee sojutini - so tasty, but packs a punch. Our server was so sweet, and overall a great experience.

Sarah, January 28, 2019

Enjoyed the food and ambiance, especially the decor. Service was great. The wait was a little long.

Brian, January 27, 2019

Delicious food, unique cocktails, and very good service in an enjoyable space. Meju is a lovely restaurant.

Graham, January 26, 2019

Korean tapas was amazing. Nice service. Great ambiance.

Kevin, January 26, 2019

I stopped by to grad a take-out lunch while in the area. The place was very clean and the food was made quickly. I got a lunch box which had a nice variety in it and was very tasty.

Angela, January 21, 2019

I got some soup to-go and brought it to a hangout with some friends. They all tasted it and RAVED about it -- big hit! We are all planning on returning to Meju in the future.

Gabriel, January 15, 2019

Great food and service :)

Katherine, January 13, 2019

our server was wonderful and the food was great. everything came out very quickly.

Aurelia, January 13, 2019

I selected 5, but it didn't seem to register.

David, January 9, 2019

"Chicken on Fire" is very hot (both in temperature and in spiciness).

Ron, January 8, 2019

I wish the eel had been available, but the wings were great and the yakisoba was good!

Aimee, December 10, 2018

It was great but the soup was very salty.

Kim, December 9, 2018

Person answering the phone was giggling and seemed confused. Online menu isn’t updated. Food was very good.

Salvatore, December 9, 2018

Great ambiance, tasty food, and good portions!

Gavin, December 9, 2018

I don't usually write reviews, but I was so pleasantly surprised by Meju this time around that I am. I haven't stepped foot in Meju in so long that it wasn't until halfway through my meal that I realized I'd been to Meju once before, maybe a year ago. The first time around, the food, though decent, was overpriced and I never went back. I'm glad that Nift had me give them another chance. The lunch box set was a good price and sizzlingly delicious! I'm adding Meju to my list of lunch places!

Janet, December 8, 2018

The soup was excellent!

Kathryn Coale, December 5, 2018

I intend to recommend it my friends!

Mark, December 5, 2018

Gerald, November 3, 2018

Tasty food and a great service! My waiter was very knowledgeable about menu ingredients and helfpul in figuring out which items I could veganize. It would be great if there were a few more options for vegans, though!
