I've always wondered what goes on in The back @ Chako! It looks dirty! The meat is such Poor quality! I wonder if they use Meat Glue..

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.

This is a great all you can eat buffet, except that you can cook all the meats and seafood you choose on a grill that is located in the centre of each table. Select the meats, seafood and veggies you want, you cook it and enjoy. Will definently go back. Go early as this place gets very busy very quickly.

I went to the Richmond Hill, ON location for the first time and I was pleasantly surprised. The food was awesome! I especially loved the beef ribs (short ribs), the thin sliced beef, the chicken, and the salmon. They also have miso soup, veggies (red/green pepper, mushroom, tofu, etc), and a variety of sushi/maki options, as well as rice, edamame,... More

Have eaten here many times. Have also eaten at many other Korean BBQ restaurants. I find Chako right up with the best of them. Good meat selection. Good fast service. Usually not hard to find a table. Korean BBQ is not for everyone. My wife will not eat with me so I have to go with some buddies. Again for... More

We arrived with a hockey team of girls - most of us had NEVER been to a Korean BBQ and we were somewhat apprehensive concerned about raw meat, the kids cooking their own food etc...BUT we had a great time! Staff took great care of us, food kept coming out, lots of variety and you could ask for more of... More

I over ate.. The selection was great. The service was great. ambiance very nice. The wine was 30% off and ending up buying a bottle for under 20$, never been able to do that anywhere outside of Europe. If you like meat and BBQ, this is a place for you.

We went here for dinner and were very unimpressed. First, the service is awful. I have never had such rude and miserable service in all my dining experiences. The waitress basically threw the food on the table, barely looked at us and didn't bring a bunch of what we ordered. The other waiter we had and hostess were also both... More
