My clothes did not stink

Due to my location, Ktown or Flushing are usually my location of choice when it comes to Korean food/BBQ. However, I was close by Fort Lee this time and wanted to give it a try. Called a friend nearby, Dong Bang was his recommendation. My question to him was, a clean atmosphere and good... read more

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

This is the first time I went to a Korean restaurant and was not disappointed. Right from the kimchee to the grilled beef to the pork were great. They cook the food in front of you which is a nice sight and experience. Some of the servers do not understand English very well so it is advisable to be very... More

Ordered sushi as an appetizer and BBQ for main. Little pricy but really good food. Sushi was fresh and meat was very tasty. Wished sushi came faster so we can eat as we had hope for as an appetizer but over all, very satisfied.

You should try this place if you like to try Korean foods for a start. They serve all kinds of Korean foods including Korean BBQ. Their banchans, which are small dishes served free of charge along with main course, are fresh and nicer than other Korean restaurants in the area. Try tofu and beef jeon. It is a pancake-like dish... More

Great place, the Kalbi is on point. The fish stew (I forget what it's called) is also very good. Great atmosphere, will definitely come back to try some other things.

We came in mid of week for dinner, 3 persons. Sushi for the starter, then Bbq ( vegeterian, scampi). Served with top entries ( small portions), but really tasty. Great experiance, nice servise, very friendly. We paid 70 $ all together.
