There is lots of variety of side dishes but the rolls are not spectacular. The salads are fresh and it pairs well with the barbequed meat. The side dishes alone will fill you up.

Aria is good if you are familiar with Korean cuisine. The food is mostly authentic Korean. It is a step above the usual Korean food.

The staff is very friendly and polite but they speak mostly Korean and their English is not very good. They are very attentive in providing your needs. It is recommended to dine at Aria with somebody who speaks Korean.

Overall, the food and service are exceptional.
