Maybe really three and a half stars, probably above three, not four. The grills and service are great, the food abundant - the non-meats on the buffet approaching dubious, in quality, but the lettuce they being to the table is fresh. The bulgogi (short rib) is decent, the brisket too, though perhaps a little thin - the main beef nicely... More

The best Korean BBQ place in California! They have great selections of meat. It is fun to grill and good to eat when it is still hot.

Been at this restaurant few times over the years and I got disappointment every time. It is a buffet style where you have variety of meat and appetizer and sweets and salads . It is cool to grill your own meat but the sauce that meat marinated in extremely sweet . So you consuming lots of Carbohydrate even the whole... More

This restaurant is an all you can eat buffet, but you cook the food yourself on a gas grill in the middle of your table. They have a nice assorted selection of thin sliced beef, chicken and pork along with some sea food. (there is shrimp available at night, but it hasn't been shelled or veined)! If there is more...

Not for veggie lovers...But if you are meat lovers there is something for every taste here. Spicy chicken/Pork, Teriyaki Chicken, Shrimps are my favs, even fried checken is also good. They can of course do a better job with the rice varieties there, but overall personal BBQ grills at every table, fast service and large meat spread for BBQ, good... More

Best Korean BBQ buffet I've ever been to. Then again, I live in the Greater Seattle area, where there aren't many good Korean buffets, if any. The meats, especially the short ribs, were very well marinated and tasted tender and flavorful. The crab kimchi was very interesting and I liked it a lot.

I agree this is an expensive place to eat (about $15 + tax for lunch, more for dinner), so if you know you're not a great meat eater - this could be an expensive option for you. However, it is a great first-time experience if you haven't done this sort of thing before. I will enumerate some of the food... More
