Absolutely the best Korean bbq I have ever had. Was recommended by a friend, and so glad we went. This was my favorite meal during my entire trip to LA. Be sure to make a reservation!

Delicious! What a great dining experience. We planned ahead with a reservation (strongly suggested to avoid wait upon arrival). Parking is limited, but valet is available for $2, (don't be cheap, tip your valet when you leave). We were greeted warmly and seated promptly . The table is equipped with a BBQ Grill in the middle, The menu is a... More

The quality of the meat was evident, even the less expensive, marinated cuts. The multide of side dishes was great, with unique tastes and textures. Service was friendly and helpful, even with a bit of a language barrier. They would get another star if you were allowed to linger over and appreciate your meal. Food comes to the table at... More

Ate way too much, some of the best Korean BBQ I've ever had, and most of Los Angeles agrees based upon the photos on the walls.

Came here with friends (first time) when visiting LA. The food, service, and atmosphere was great! A little on the expensive side for the portion and quality. The waiters will serve and cook the meat for you at your table.

I order a tofu stew with shrimp, unfortunately........... They didn't clean the shrimp( that were tiny) correctly and... More

On a second visit, things have changed. Most importantly, the food (meat and banchan) remain the same, pricey but good quality and well-seasoned. This time, we had a Justin Bieber wannabe for a waiter with an attitude to match. It really made for an unpleasant meal to have a young punk with no discernible achievements other than being a waiter... More

You cook your meat and veggie over a BBQ set on your table. You can do your own seasoning or order ones that are already marinated. The price is reasonable like most family restaurants, service is quick and efficient. The quality of meat and veggie is excellent. Portions are generous and the Korean beer goes down well with the BBQ.... More

The place was very good except for the first waiter who really was not courteous and could care less about making the waiting time enjoyable for the guests. However, the rest of the experience and service was awesome. The food is authentic and very diverse. My advice is to either do a reservation or don't show up very hungry because... More
