Make reservations otherwise you will be waiting outside with tons of people. Best KBBQ - good quality of meat and I love that they changed the grill several times especially before grilling different types of meat and seafood. I think I could have gotten full just with the number of delicious 'panchan' they served. Yes it is more on the... More

I came here before for galbitang and didn't think it was that great. However, I came here for the ggotsal this time because a friend insisted that it is amazing and that it is a must try. So I came here and tried it. I was a bit skeptical bc it's $40 for 1 person's worth amount of meat. That's... More

All of their meat bbq menu is good. Wait was around 25mins on a Friday night. Staff was decent and very attentive. However, I just didn't feel the good vibe about them considering the money I spent. The banchans were excellent. Portions can be deceivingly small but definitely filling.

fantastic Korean BBQ! This restaurant is more impressive on the outside than you expect from the rather ordinary strip plaza appearance. Lovely, upscale interior is exceeded by the food and the great service. Excellent food. We had the bulgogi and the skirt steak. Sooooo good. Not cheap but definitely worth it!!

We enjoyed our late night BBQ meal. We had Kalbi and Bugogi. The meat quality and portion was very good and better than most other Korean BBQ restaurants that we have had in other cities, including NYC where we live. The grill is at the table and the staff assists with the cooking of the meat. The banchan (side) dishes... More

Excellent Galbi. I always get the unmarinated here. Excellent Prime GGot Sal - it's a thin fatty cut and very tasty. Crispy pancake (Pa Jun) is just okay. I've had better. Re all the small side dishes - they seemed to be less refined/tasty and also less generous in variety and portions than when I ate here 2 years ago?... More

I came here for the kalbitang. It wasn't as amazing as I thought it was going to be. Maybe I went in with such high expectations. My fave kalbitang is in OC so I was actually a bit disappointed. And my bf agreed. It's not bad, but it's not amazing. It's still pretty good. Just don't go with such high... More

Excellent quality, delicious marinated meat cooked over a wood burning flame accompanied by a myriad of small korean tapas style dishes-what is there not to like? I've had korean bbq in Korea town in NYC and Fort Lee, NJ. I liked that wood was used to cook the meat. The other places I've been to have used gas flame or... More

This place is a blast. They serve you at a little hibachi type grill, so be prepared to get loads of smoke in your clothes. That means, you might want to leave the nice threads in the closet and go kind of casual. We went as a family of 4 with our 2 teenaged girls. We ordered #1 and #2... More

If your not korean and thinking you aré gonna find an american bbq grill, you aré way far of that particular place. Strange food. Maybe it is an exquisite restaurant for locals, but if you aré not familiar with korean food DO NOT TRY IT. Very pricey. Im not into korean flavors. This is my honest and personal opinión.
