I have come here several times in the past for the lunch buffet and always satisfied, that is until today. nov. 25, 2016 I like to get in before noon (11.40am) and the lunch rush & I always start with some salad items and the soups. The salad items (kim chi, sprouts, etc) were chilled - good! The soups were... More

As we wanted to try a Korean dish I had heard about we decided to try this restaurant and I ordered the bee bim bap. It is a cast iron pot with rice in the bottom and vegetables and meat on top and lastly a fried egg. The pot is very hot and the server adds hot sauce and mixes... More

Better half called ahead and ordered take out. When presented with the $50 bill for 3 dishes, the Short Ribs were $4 more and Chicken Dish $1.50 more than noted on the take out menu the one they had sitting on their counter. The person who at first claimed to be the manger said the prices had gone up and... More

My Dad's been going to this restaurant for over thirty years. The last time I was here was about 20 or so years ago. We went here when the place was still Korean Gardens. Now that Bul-go-gi House has changed owners, it's not as good as it was and I've been looking for another Korean restauarant. B-Bim-Baab was a little... More

I have been to this restaurant many many times over the last 30 years the food is always good and prices reasonable. We recently went for dinner with a few friends, after we were seated we waited for 10-15 minutes for someone to come and take a drink order. Once we had our drinks it took another 15 minutes or...

While visiting dear friends in Beaumont, we decided to try one of their favourite Edmonton restaurants, B-Bim-Baab. Cheryl has never had Korean food and myself only once at this very place. I recalled it being excellent food and was glad to return. As usual the food was incredible with just the right amount of spicy flavour. I was particularly impressed... More

Went here for lunch. I have to say, $14.99 for the smorg was a great value. There were many Korean specialties in the trays. Bulgogi, wonton soup, chicken wings, Korean noodles, the list kept going. And there was nothing I tried that I didn't like. Self serve, eat as much as you like, great food. The staff was a bit... More

This Korean restaurant has a good buffet with a pretty good selection. The service with the drinks was slow but the food was very good and tasty. I'll try something off the menu next time.

Came here on a Saturday night with a friend. Read a lot of reviews and the general feel was "good food, bad service". No problem, we are both familiar with Korean food and not fussy about service. Place looked busy as expected of 7pm on a Saturday night. We walked in the door and there is a sign that says... More

This is usually a 4.5 star Korean culinary experience for us, but last night was disappointing. The food is not usually greasy - it was. The beef is not usually stringy - it was. The bi-bim baab is normally brimming with good fresh veggies - it wasn't. The service was distracted, where normally it is attentive. Bad day for the... More
