What is the best Korean Restaurant in Chicago? Looking for some thing that would be first time visit friendly

I have been doing lots of searches while I have been in Chicago(first time here). I have found that almost all of the review sites have a range of different ratings at every place. People are saying that if you are not Korean ( and I am not that it is hard to get service and help with the menu.

I am looking for a friendly,clean and not to terribly over priced Korean food. =)

If you were to ask someone from Korea, I’ll bet they would tell you that the Korean restaurants most first-time friendly to non-Koreans are NOT the best Korean Restaurants to be found in Chicago.

Jin Ju in Andersonville and Su-Ra in Wicker Park are restaurants serving Korean food with Western-style presentation and plenty of English-speaking staff who are likely willing to explain dishes in detail to those who are not familiar with Korean cuisine.

After you go to either or both of these places, you’ll have to check out some more "authentic" spots! Have fun.
