“Great but not as good as before”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

We come to this restaurant quite regularly, from its opening to now we come at least a few times a month. This restaurant is a nice decent place to get some breaths from the busy streets and traffic.

The food is very good, they use quality meats and produces and everything we ordered from them are very delicious. We order the kalbi and pancakes every time.

Its a place that we take our friends to if they happen to be in the area. Great food great vibe, service is decent.

Friendly with kids and its roomy. Love everything there.

Just one thing that really bothers me is that, their proportion for the pancake sampler keep getting smaller and smaller. From their opening to now, they must have smaller the size at least twice. I just can't get that thought out of my mind.

“if you like korean”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

Nice restaurant on the top floor of a building on Broadway. They have plenty of tables with Korean BBQ fires. The portions are not royal, but quite just enough. Condiments of Kimchi and other are fine.
Nice view.

“Excellent Korean with the kids in NYC!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

We reserved a table online, family of 5. Everything went smoothly. The restaurant entrance was just opposite the entrance of our hotel, the Radisson Martinique on Broadway. The entrance was however a bit difficult to find due to some works going on in the building. We shared 3 barbecues for the entire family, which was so great. The waitress made excellent recommendations. Outside the window, the evening arrived in NYC and all we took in the lights of the city. The children (10,12,14) were so impressed by the barbecue in the middle of the table and the views from the39th floor.
