Korean in Southern NH, North Eastern MA?

Aby recommendations for Korean food in Southern NH or North Eastern MA?

We're planning to take my step dad out for an early Fathers' Day dinner tonight and he is a big fan of Korean food, especially Kim Chi - for him, the spicier, the better.

We've been to Dynamite in Hudson NH many times, and have always had a great meal, but we're looking for something different.

I'd love to find a Korean BBQ place that you cook at your table and also has a good kim chi selection.

I've seen a few good reviews of The Korean Place in Manchester, NH - but nothing recent.
How does that compare to New Jang Su Korean BBQ in Burlington, MA?

Any other ideas?

thanks

    Hee Bin in Lawrence, MA is okay for Korean BBQ.

        Woo Jung is a hike from NH, but worth it!

        We ended up at "The Korean Place" in Manchester last night and had an excellent meal.

        It was not at all what we were expecting. I was thinking Kim Chi and Bulgogi for some reason and it wasn't that at all - but the food was very very good.
        We had the dumplings and the vegetable pancake as apps - both were excellent. For dinner we had the beef bi bim bop, the spicy pork bi bim bop, the crispy chicken, the seafood soup and a few other things.
        It took a long time to get the food to our table, but we weren't in a rush and the staff was constantly checking on us and even gave us a free beer to apologize.
        After dinner they gave us small bowls of homemade lemon custard which everyone enjoyed (my son descibed it as "heavenly", that's high praise from a 12 year old).

        It wasn't dirt cheap, but not crazy expensive - for 6 people, with a few appetizers, it was about $130 with tax.

        Not exactly "traditional Korean" (whatever that means), but an great meal - we're definitely going back.

          Try Shira Kiku, 13 Broad Street Nashua. You will thank me for sure!

            A second for Shira Kiku. Good, authentic food at reasonable prices, in my opinion.

            I read in Hippo Press (I think) that the Korean Place is closing (mama's retiring). Son is opening a place in Concord, more fusion than Korean.
