Best Korean in Chantilly area?

I'm looking for recommendations for a good Korean restaurant in the Chantilly area. I know there are lots in Annandale, but we live in Loudoun County and I'd prefer not to go that far. I've never been to one, but my brother-in-law (who lived in Korea for 5 years - and can speak and read Korean) is visiting from out of town and is going with us as our "guide" :)
PS-Anyone know about SooWon Galbi in Centreville?

  1. Il Mee/Yil Mi in the "red roof" plaza (Lee-Jackson Station?) on Route 50 just east of 28 should suffice.

    1. SooWon is average. However, for me average as compared to other korean places means pretty good...good food and value.
      Il Mee is a buffet and it has all the positive and negitives of the buffet place.

      The best place in chantilly for korean food for me is Go Yang Gip. at the intersection of blookfield corporate drive and sullyfied circle. The item to order are gam ja tang and soon dae. All the other stuff is good.

      If you go to Centreville, vit gol (light house tofu) is pretty good as well.

      1. Soo Wan Galbi's namesake kalbi/galbi dish is very good. The marbling on the uncooked rib is impressive, and the meat is awfully tasty. The staff is always particularly gracious when we bring our 70-something parents there for a three-generation meal.

        1. I'm not sure if this is Chantilly or the outskirts of Fairfax but near Willi's ski shop where 50, 29 and 66 intersect is the Seoul House which is excellent. The service a little slow but the food worth the wait.
