Expensive Korean BBQ

The menu on Tripadvisor is wrong, the price is much higher. Around $30 for each BBQ dish. The food was great, the service was so so if you don't speak Korean or are not a frequent customer. Most of the side dishes were spicy. Overall an enjoyable experience.

We come to this restaurant regularly and not once were we disappointed. Food is excellent, tasty and fresh, must be also authentic Korean because majority of customers are Koreans. I would recommend Galbi on the grill, but this time we also tried Bulgogi and fried beef dumplings. No need to order appetizers - your meet comes with lots of side... More

Probably best place to enjoy both Korean short ribs you cook on the table and sushi in Bergen County vs competing restaurants in neighboring towns. Keep in mind that like most sushi places in US, they are not 100% authentic Japanese style but close enough. Both meat and fish are very fresh. Service is great and servers are very tentative....

I hesitate to call it Korean BBQ since everything is grilled but it's very good. It may be a bit pricey compared to other restaurants in the area but the food has always been fresh. Nice interior. Decent banchan. The staff are very accommodating for large crowds. Menus in English and Korean. Fresh samgyupsal is the way to go. I... More

I paid about $90 all in for a business lunch. The free 10 dish appetizers were tasty and high quality. We ordered the beef cooked in front of us which was excellent. Prices were higher but good atmosphere for formal business or social meals. Must be good as lots of Korean folks were here

A friend took me here & the food was great! A bit pricey compared to what I'm used to in Virginia but excellent quality. We had so many dishes! Broiled croaker, seafood pancake, short ribs, and spicy tofu soup! And they bring out plenty of side dishes which is great!

The quality of the food is always great. But since late last year the prices went up and servings are less. I noticed that less people are dining when we came in at 7pm Thursday.

We were headed to the Diner on the corner and as we walked past this place our nostrils were assaulted with the smell of BBQ. It was the most tantalizing aroma. So we went the following day and it didn't disappoint. The food is very good and the place was clean and the staff pleasant. I recommend this establishment highly.

Outside of Korea, this is the best Korean barbeque that I have visited. The beef was just outstanding. The selection of side dishes was what you would expect to see in Korea. Everything was nicely prepared. Service was excellent. If you want an authentic Korean experience, this is the place to go!

The food was good. I didn't know what to expect, I went with a group of friends who some were experienced Korean bbq eaters. I'm not even entirely sure what was ordered. I know meat was pork, and 2 types of beef. I thoroughly enjoyed my food and would go here again. There were a lot of Korean people eating... More
