RoosterSpin is one of the very few restaurants that we keep coming back to. It's all around fantastic!
We especially like that the staff knows us and remembers all the little things we like.

Food was great, as always. The twice fried chicken is always so good. Tried the garlic fried rice and that was really really tasty as well.

Biggest issue was my wife’s meal came out ten minutes before mine. Neither were complex so there was no reason for the Timing difference. Kinda ruins the meal with your wife when timing is this off.

I would say 3/4 of our meal was absolutely delicious. Wish there was some more flexibility for food intolerances (being able to remove the gluten or dairy / substitute) but the flavor was good. Tuna dish needs something else added to it for a good crunch, like some fresh veggies. Need a few healthy options added to the menu too.

I absolutely love the food here. This was the first time I was here for lunch though. They have lunch specials that are a great value and are generous portions. The restaurant was quiet but it was a weekday. Definitely a must go to place. The wings are phenomenal!

Very tasty and we ordered too much food! We thought the apps would be a little smaller, so we ordered two, the kimchi fries (yum) and the mango salad (basically, a MOUNTAIN of greens with dressing and pieces of mango and tomato scattered around). We also got the Bibimbap bulgogi bowl, which was salty and flavorful, and the miso ramen. Washed it down with a pitcher of white sangria, which certainly had a punch to it. Next time, and there will be a next time, we'll try the double fried chicken, and possibly a smaller starter!

The food was interesting, but the service was very slow. Tuna Tataki is excellent. The fried rice and galbi were so so. A lot of shellfish and not too many vegetarian options. If you are looking for traditional Korean, this is not ypur place. If you like a lively bar atmosphere with decent food, give it a go.

Simply the best chicken ever. Crispy, not greasy, well sauced either mild or spicy. (Go half and half ) Potato wedges, truffle and parm are might tasty, even more so with the Kimchi mayo (the bacon mustard could use more of a punch of bacon)

Their double fried chicken is to die for. I lived the huge mango salad. The ginger drinks are delicious as is the pork buns. The entire menu is worth a trip to Westfield.

Hidden in plain sight is this casual, downtown spot. Just off the train station parking lot, there's plenty of parking at dinner time. I find it hard to describe this place. There's a rock, industrial kind of vibe. The menu is a bit limited and pretty much Korean. Their fried chicken is great, the spicy isn't too spicy and the 'not spicy' is flavorful. We enjoyed what they call a mango salad. The size able greens, fruit and tasty dressing is definitely shareable. The seafood pancake was on the greasy side on this visit. We shared the chicken which as always was very good. Noisy as can be when busy, but relaxing with great 'background' music. The servers are friendly. Not your typical Korean restaurant. I believe they have one or two other places in the state.
