Went with family. The selection was what you would get a typical korean bbq. This place has great atmosphere, loud and fun. The only bad thing is the place is really smokey on busy nights. Make sure you bring a bag to put your jackets inside otherwise you will come out smelling smokey. I would definitely go back again with... More

We were celebrating my Daughter's Graduation - Late Night Dinner at half price - it's not worth the price that we had paid for. No sushi except salads, soup, kimchi and tofu. We bbq'd the food such as Marinated Short Barbecue Ribs, Beef, Chicken, Pepper, Pineapple, Shrimp, Calamari and Fish that we had ordered from the servers or wait staffs.... More

There were seven of us,they had your reservation,this restaurant has a BBQ burner in the middle of the table and you cook your own food. Ordering the food is no problem as they have every thing precut,beef,fish,shrimp, short ribs,chicken,and peppers.The only problem is cooking knowing if it is truly done and if you generate smoke you leave the place smelling...

The usual sort of meats, chicken and fish. The ribs are almost impossible to eat with chopsticks. You end up smelling like cooked food. This is a huge restaurant. Table top grilling is not my preference nor is all you can eat. Chicken takes a very long time to cook properly.

I have yet to ever have a bad experience at this restaurant. I've visited as a couple and as a large group and each time the food quality is great and so is the service. During their busy hours they have more people on the floor and you're never left having to wait for long to order more food or... More

This place has a great selection of meats, seafood and vegetables to grill. Their menu also included various sushi selections and desserts. Service was good and attentive, no major complaints. They could use more ventilation as when the restaurant is full the place gets really smokey and difficult to breathe for little children.

Typical AYCE experience, good food and service. Only red flag for me was that I was in party of 3 and we were charged tip already in the receipt - then the server advised that the tip included already did not include his services and that we should tip him on top of that too. Never experienced that before.

As a Korean I'm telling you, this is not Korean BBQ, I don't mind the food. What they're calling Korean BBQ at Chako is the Chinese bastardization of the real deal, just because they give you kimchi with it does not make it legit. I suggest you check out a real Korean BBQ like Sariwon or Little Piggy for an... More
