When I booked a couple of nights at Besthost Inn, I was kind of excited to discover a KBBQ place right next door. We walked over around 530pm and were seated right away. The theme of our night seemed to be samgyeopsal. Except for some beef tongue that I ordered, we ate mostly pork. Sadly, this is probably the only... More

Food is tasty and tables are clean. Around the reception area it look dirty because there were bags of trash from the night before. They really should clean up before they open. When this place gets crowded (which is all the time) it really gets smokey in there. I think they need better vents. The quality of the meats is... More

I came here for dinner this past weekend, my first time at a Korean BBQ joint. The service was great, friendly staff, and the price was right for the AYCE options. Brisket was tasty, along with most of the meats available. Free ice cream was icing on the cake. I will be back soon.

Seems like a location meant for the unsavory folks of the area to go before being arrested for criminal activity. The food may be great but dealing with drug paraphernalia indoors and outdoors was a red flag for me.

I've been to the other CSG site (which I really like) so I had a bit of an expectation for this place. I was not disappointed. We were seated immediately (went around 630 on a Monday). We got the normal $17.99 package for the three of us (two adults + 12 yr old) and our 3 yr old ate free.... More

The nice thing about is that you fry the meat and fish they bring you. Another nice detail is that you get an icecream for free.

The price is average among kbbq places, and all the cuts of meat were of good quality. I would call this restaurant a good staple if you are in the area. No better or worse than any other.

This was not what we expected. For any other "hicks" like us, I guess "Korean BBQ" is where you get to cook your own meat. Basically, all you can eat for around $17-$19 with children half price. Amazing service, good food. The restaurant is a bit dirty (they need to spend a few days fixing up small things) but the... More

I have eaten now about 8 times at Cham Soot Gol. It is the best Korean BBQ I have tasted in Buena Park, and on the short list for favorite American locations. Service is friendly and impeccable. Prices are very reasonable, and better than most in the neighborhood. Good selection of Banchan. Very tasty bugolgi. Staff is friendly to people... More
