A place to visit if you are in Suwon

I have lived in Suwon city for over 10 years and have frequented this place many times. This is a place that is attractive to tourists if they desire to experience rib BBQ. It is clean, but the staff do not always speak English althought he menu does have English dish titles.

This restaurant has actually 3 buildings, with several floors each. Its quite amusing to see how much they work! Service: i said this restaurant is mostly targeting businesses because of the services theg provide, such as picking up with their shuttle buses (i assume only in nearby companies, with a minimun # of people, and under reservation ). They also... More

Great ambiance, good choices and varieties of typical korean food condiments, but 45,000 Krw for 1 order (2 pieces) of unmarinated kalbi definately something I would spend on a regular basis. The taste of the food doesn't justify the high price IMO, so I will probably not go back there again. But if you don't mind paying for the ambiance... More

Good service, very authentic Korean barbecue - best if you have someone along who speaks fluent Korean and can do the ordering, but if not, the wait staff speaks enough English to make everything comfortable. The meat is incredible, the side dishes and soups are very good, and if you want things really spicy (we did), they are happy to... More

I ate dinner here as I wanted to try traditional Korean BBQ whilst on a business trip to Suwon. I was on my own but my hotel's front desk wrote the restaurants name in Korean so my taxi driver found it okay. The restaurant is quite big with lots of 'BBQ tables'. It was a bit smoky due to the...

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.
