We were coming back from the Georgia O'Keefe exhibit and decided to catch some lunch. I eat a lot of Korean food in San Jose so was looking forward to our lunch experience.

Very good BBQ. The Korean beef is excellent. The chicken was a little dry but not bad. It's hard to keep chicken breast from drying out. The pork has a great flavor. The service was friendly and the prices are on point.

We spent a few days in San Francisco and actually had dinner here twice. They bring out the charcoal grill to your table with about a dozen little side dishes, plus noodles, soup, and salad. The meal for four was more than enough and in the end made my friends and I fall in love with Korean Barbecue. At that... More
