I recently had dinner at Park's BBQ with my son and his girlfriend. We had reservations for dinner, which is very much recommended. We had a beef dish and a pork dish, both of which were very tasty. We also got an octopus hot pot, which was spicy and also very tasty. Service was extremely attentive and friendly. It was... More

It's kind of like upscale native Korean food. The BBQ at your table is fun, the portions are insanely large, and it's always fun. It doesn't remind me that much of Seoul; the food is honestly too good because the quality of ingredients is far beyond most of the cheap restaurants in South Korea. Great experience and the portions and... More

Wonderful Korean barbecue cooked Korean style at the table. Delicious. Fresh. We also had BBQ vegetables and mushrooms (some I've never seen before). A bit expensive for lunch but very reasonable for dinner. Parking lot packed but valet available. If you are in Korea Town then worth it.

Located in a run-down looking strip mall. Parking is valet only for $2 (I wouldn't want to park my car myself in that congested area). Meat is pricey but not compared to NYC where one serving is around $33 but much less in amount. They give you a lot per serving here plus the price of beef is astronomical these... More

Our family of 5 went to this Korean BBQ restaurant in Korean town. The restaurant is located in a run down neighborhood just outside LA. As you pull into the parking lot, only valet parking is available for $2, which is not bad. Korean BBQ is mostly beef, with a couple of pork dishes, and no chicken on the menu.... More

LIKED: Everything is fresh and the quality of food is really good. Korean BBQ is always fun (they cook in front of you). Good quantity. DISLIKED: $2 Valet parking. Service is poor: everybody is on a rush so they don't really have time to listen to you or attend your needs. Meat is really overpriced: they take advantage of their... More

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!!
