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

I've been meaning to go to this place for a very long time. Finally went over this long weekend. The place was packed. Good sign. The food was fantastic! Highly recommend #45. Also try the dish that the restaurant is named after. Had a very good Korean beer as well. Looking forward to going back. Hopefully I can find time... More

Excellent little hideway...heard of this place for years and finally tried it - tucked away on the south side industrial area! Very tasty and inexpensive, fresh food. Worth the trip...I would recommend anything on the menu!!! Hop over to the sushi place next door - KENKO!! some of the best sushi in Edmonton...
