If Charcoal is your thing

This is an amazing place, that still does the whole charcoal thing. Every time I come to LA from Vegas, I have to eat here. The Korean Short Ribs are amazing, and cooking it over the Charcoal gives it that flavor. Personally I like tasting the meat as well as the heat. I you like the... read more

My son lives in L.A. and eats in Korea town a lot. This was his 2nd favorite spot. Couldn't get to his top spot because of an accident and resulting traffic jam. Don't know how the other place could have topped this one except perhaps it has a more appetizing name. Very gracious and attentive staff. After picking meats to... More

Excellent Korean BBQ experience. The food was outstanding (especially the thin marinated beef) and the service was very attentive. As you'd expect, the bbqs are literally in front of you on each table so be prepared to smell a little of smoke by the end of the evening. The only drawback for us was that you are required to order... More

The only way we would have found this restaurant was if a local would take us there and that is exactly what happened. After going to Korea two years ago I was craving Korean Barbacue and a friend of ours suggested this restaurant. I must warn travellers that it does not look like much from outside (or even from inside)... More

My First time in a Korean BBQ place. It was recommended by a Korean sales clerk in the fashion district and wow. It was a great experience to go there. Please order the shirt ribs. You cook your meat in your table. It's delicious and fair in price. Great concept. You can tell this is the place for that!!

The skinny Parking: street or their small lot if you get there early enough Decor: dive Service: gruff Food: delicious I have been coming here for 15 years and while the decor has gotten slightly better, the taste of the Spencer steak and the short ribs never fail.

This hole in the wall K town institute came highly recommended by local friends. We came a little early (6-ish) to avoid crowds and were seated right away. Parking was available in their lot, no problem. The place spells (and smells!) authentic from a block away. Charcoal, moms and pops servers, little English spoken but adequate. We ordered three meats... More

I'm a local who has been to many K town BBQ places - this one is my favorite. real charcoal. grumpy servers. amazing meat. a real experience if you want one. If you don't like smoke and things a little rough around the edges maybe not for you. Don't forget the so ju.

Went to this place with a big group while visiting LA in April, and by popular demand, came back again in May. It's a little quieter than other Korean BBQ places - you are actually able to talk to the other folks at your table. The food is delicious except that this last time, they forgot to turn the meat...

This was our first experience with Korean BBQ. A true culture experience with authentic Korean cuisine. The quality of the food was great and the service was excellent. The food was extremely tasty with a wide variety of Ezra's to add to your choice of several varieties of meats, poultry and seafood. We are going back again to enjoy more!
