Three weeks in Korea; this was probably the best Kalbi I ever had anywhere in the country. Our large group was served in a well set private room. Amazing side dishes, soups, vegetables, and homemade rice wine accompanied our meal. The service was outstanding.

This was my very 1st Korean BBQ experience & Im glad it was here. The environment is nice & the service is friendly. The hostess spoke some english & that was helpful. We did not get to sit traditional because they just took us to a table & I would have liked to sit on the floor, but we didnt... More

Went out with some friends and just ate and ate and ate some really, really good kalbi. As usual, exceptional korean service with all the trimmings. We reeked of garlic for days! Just perfect and we will definitely be back on our next trip.

I've been staying in Suwon while working on my first visit to South Korea. I'm a big fan of beef and ribs so when I learned beef ribs were a speciality of Suwon I had to try them. I discovered this restaurant on TripAdvisor and went with colleagues. We weren't disappointed. We ordered the Korean beef and imported (cheaper) Australian... More

CYC ( 2013.05.12 ) I went without expectations,why people like to know what was. King galbi, typical food in Suwon, was very delicious. Employee was very kind. The enormous size of restaurant, I was surprised to. Everybody is satisfied, except that the price is a little expensive. There was famous restaurants in Suwon and recommend to others.

Was brought here by a local to try their Galbi Tang. Beef ribs in broth, served with rice and side dishes. The broth was clear and full of beefy taste. Suwon is famous for it's beef ribs, so this galbi tang is as good as it goes. Will be back to try the bbq.

A bit more intimate and relaxed than Bonsuwon Galbi since the rooms are smaller, but the restaurant can be pretty busy too. I took a colleague on my second visit and he was surprised that I found such a good restaurant (thanks tripadvisor :-)

We decided to drive to Kabojung Kalbi instead of Bonsuwon Galbi as it was slightly nearer to Central Hotel where we were staying. 1 serving (250g) of unmarinated Korean beef ribs was KRW 39 000 and that is only 2 pieces. A serving of 150g marinated beef cost KRW 19 000. All side dishes were complimentary including a beef stew.... More

I visit there from time to time with my family, sometimes with my colleagues. It's a little bit expensive but worth it. I believe the taste of Kalbi is sweet that even foreigners could enjoy without any hesitation. Actually I could find many foreigners there. No doubt about taste. We need make a reservation sometimes. Without reservation I had to... More
