Decent Downtown Toronto Korean BBQ

My family went to try out this restaurant on Queen Street for Sunday lunch (there are 2 Korean Grill House locations nearby Yonge Street, 1 in Scarborough, 1 in Markham). The place is narrow and deep. We were seated right away and given menus. Each table has a gas BBQ recessed into it with a... read more

We were walking by and the restaurant looked busy which is normally a good sign. The concept of preparing your own food looked interesting enough to try it out so we ordered the all you can eat meat deal. The tables have a grill plate in the middle where you place your meat/fish and you get to decide how well... More

Despite a strange smell of moth balls near the entrance (on the inside)... the rest of the visit was quite nice. The service was friendly and fast. The food was excellent. Overall, just a nice dinner. We tried a variety of dishes and all were tasty. Cooking them was fun as well.

We were so disappointed with our trip here. My husband and I met in Korea so we love taking trips to Korean restaurants. We arrived, we were taking upstairs to what looked like an unfinished part of the restaurant. It was cold, undecorated and it was a little dirty. It had the polar opposite atmosphere to the ground floor. Our... More

Went here with a group of people, with most not familiar with the place. The food was good, the atmosphere was good and the service was great. half of us had bbq grill, while half had mixed rice specials. The experience was enjoyable.

I love Korean BBQ... and this was NOT great. Perhaps the a la carte options are better, but all-you-can-eat BBQ was absolutely awful. Everything tasted like it was soaked in straight sugar and MSG. Service was quite slow, no refill on anything, having to flag down servers each time. They were busy, maybe just understaffed for the number of tables... More

I thought the whole point of going to a restaurant is to have the food prepared for you? Although the concept is unique, I personally didn't like it. Average food and it ended being quite expensive. Won't go back again.

Had not been to a Korean Grill House before and we really loved it! The server helped us order and we cooked it ourselves at the table. They had an "all-you-can-eat" price which made it easy to try a bunch of different stuff.

Walked in curious to see what food they served and spent 2 hours at the grill enjoying grilled meat! Food / quality: good meat quality and wide range of options for veggies and meats Restaurant / venue: efficient and nicely put... well arranged to optimize the grill tables... which can make it a bit too hot and packed during affluence...

Neighborhood Profile
Queen Street and West Queen West
Known as the Art & Design District, West Queen West is one of the most energetic and dynamic of Toronto's neighborhoods. Along with its great modernist museums, clubs, and restaurants, it's home to some of the funkiest specialty shops, ranging from clothing to stationary to collectables, and caters to niche and vintage shoppers of all kinds. That makes it a mecca for creatives, including hobbyists designers, writers, and painters. With ink on their hands and fabric pelts in their bags, visitors to Queen Street traverse the avant-garde blend of historic architecture and ultra-contemporary fare. Home to some of Toronto's chicest hotels and most modish java fixes, busy with street cars, and always suffused with live music drifting onto packed patios at bars and clubs by nightfall, the vibrancy of West Queen West is undeniable.
