Initially I had a tough time deciding btwn 3 or 4 stars. I go back to S. Korea at least once a year to see the in-laws I am somewhat spoiled on Korean BBQ. There are three different all-u-can eat menu prices here. Obviously with each level the quality should increase. We chose the middle one... read more

My boss, a co-worker and I spend nearly 2 hours here feasting on all sorts of Korean delectable treats. The kimchi and salad spread at the start of the meal is impressive. The meats are all good quality. The decor and staff attentiveness were top notch. I've never had Korean BBQ before, but I can't imagine it gets much better.... More

My wife and I were looking for something different than what we normally do when dining out - and while Korean BBQ may be a common choice for some, it was definitely something new for us. We enjoyed getting to sample so many different items and grilling them ourselves. Would have preferred charcoal grills, but overall, a nice venue.

A true Korean BBQ restaurant. You cook your food on a grill in the center of the table. There were five adults in our party. There are two menus A1@ $26.99 and A2@ $21.99 each for all you can eat with in 2 hours. We chose the lower price. Items were Jumooluk (Boneless Marinated Beef Ribs), (Kimchee) Cadol Baegi (Black...

This place is always on my to-go list whenever I am in San Diego. The second most expensive menu gives you the whole 10oz rib eye steak. Save tummy for the rib eye finger cut, too. really well-seasoned. crowds start around 6pm, go for early dinner. the side dishes have shrunk over the years though. but get the tofu soup.

It is a nice place to stay with friends and enjoy the typical Korean bow. I don't like the kind of food though. It is my personal taste.

We went looking for some good Korean BBQ, and we were not disappointed. They have an all you can eat menu and they will just keep bringing you food until up can't take it any more. Trust me it's worth the trip.

This place is one of the top rated places for korean bbq here... There is actually a little waiting line to get in. But probably 99% of people who rated this place have never been to korea or japan. As far as the states are concerned and if you've never been to korea or japan...this place would be the bomb!... More
