So good that the restaurant is spread over 3 street corners

Delicious, high-quality, and great service. It's not often that you have all three descriptions for one place - and one more important one for non-Koreans...patient. We were a bunch of Americans traveling for work and they were patient with us, as well as walked us through the whole process. Beef... read more

We were guests of some friends from Seoul and had asked to go to a traditional Kalbi place. They asked at the staff at the Samsung Museum and the KBS station and the answer was unanimous- Kaboung. The place is so popular that they have their own parking garage. We went to one building, but it was full on a... More

It is another Korean grilled beef place in Suwon that is as pricey as Bonsuwon-galbi but the quality of meat and the service staff are matched. There used to be three really good Korean BBQ restaurants in Suwon but now days I would like to recommend Bonsuwon-galbi or Kabojung Kalbi if anyone ask me that they want to try Korean... More

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.
