Manna Korean BBQ

What a wonderful experience! Quite a variety of meats and seafood to select from and my first time to eat squid that wasn't coated and deep fried which was good too. Excellent service!

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

This was my first visit to Manna. I have had AYCE (All You Can Eat) Korean BBQ several times before at several restaurants in Kearny Mesa and was thrilled to find an option in Chula Vista. Its a little pricier than other places that I've been too, but the food is great. I chose the A1 Premium option which includes... More

We love to try new Korean restaurants when we come to Southern CA, and my husband saw that this had great reviews. Grateful we made reservations for our party of 10. We only had to wait a few minutes with many others standing waiting. First time I've had all the side dishes waiting when we sat down. So worth the... More

I have had Korean BBQ in many places ( I really like Korean BBQ) and this was a very good experience. Most Korean BBQ place are very similar. What stuck out for me was the attention I received. The servers were on their game. The were very nice and I felt very well taken care of. I was by myself... More

Having grown up eating Korean BBQ prepared by a woman from Korea, then not eating it for over 20 yrs (they are few and far between in AZ), I forgot how much I LOVE it...Manna was a wonderful reminder of how delicious Korean BBQ is. Manna will be included in any future trips to SD!

This is a buffet bbq joint. You have 3 choices to pick from; Top shelf meats, deluxe meats and standard. Food is great and the service is good. The host guy is a jerk though.
