Not a fan of the place. Very easy to get food poisoned. I tried their sushi and it's not that good either. The concept is great but just not my style. As well, there's only so much you can eat of their meat. Paying $30 for it is way overprices.

The meat is good quality and the service is friendly and efficient. The prices are okay. The beef ribs are delicious and so is the chicken. I like that there are also veggie options to throw on the grill. Overall, it was a fun experience. Next time, I won't bother with the squid or fish. They didn't seem as fresh... More

It was a different experience from our usual dinner places. Enjoyed the atmosphere and we were able to make the food to each of our individual taste . The service was good and prompt.

I'm motivated to post this because I cannot see how this place can be rated 4/5. The meat quality at Chako was poor. We came on a Weekend and they had 'Chako steak.' Worst quality beef ever. There were only two of us and they gave us four :s. There was hardly any meat I can recommend that would be... More

I ended up here as part of a work team function. I am generally a huge fan of AYCE Korean BBQ and sushi places. Chako has great Korean BBQ but the sushi is mediocre at best. The meat quality was good and the highlight for me was the Squid and Short Ribs. The sushi rolls were underwhelming and. The rice... More

Found Chako accidently, lucky it was turn alright. The meat was tender, and huge. With the AYCE , we also get sushi(its in the package, they have... More

I've been to similar BBQ restaurants & I would say that if this one really stands out. I found the meat to great. I got, beef (thinly cut steaks), short ribs, Chicken, Shrimp, calamari & salmon. Aside from the shrimp (Which I'll get to in a moment) everything was great. I enjoyed spicing my own creations on our grill with... More

I love Korean BBQ so this place works perfectly for me. By paying between 16-21 CAD, depending on when you visit, you eat as much as you can. And quality of food is very good. Overall this is one my favorite places that I visit every time I am in town.
