I've visited this place several times. Expensive but good place. Their marinated/grilled beef is so good. Even side dishes are delicious. If you don't have enough money but want to try this, you can visit at lunch time. It is around $20.00 per person.

I've been here a few times with family. The side dishes are great and the beef is definitely the best I've had in Suwon. Save your money and get the American beef. It's a LOT cheaper than the hanwoo but honestly we can't tell the difference between the two. It's a great place for families as there are huge tables... More

I' really enjoyed the food at this restaurant. I must say, as an American, I wasn't sure what i was eating, but i enjoyed all of the dishes. There was sweet and savory, hot and sour. If you are up for culinary experience, give this a go.

One of the most famous place in Suwon for "Suwon Galbi" and they are there for long time. They serve marinated and grilled beef in Suwon style and most of you would love this menu. As time goes by, they are cutting beef smaller and smaller and surprisingly high price could make you stunned, but good for experience about "Galbi"

Delicious, high-quality, and great service. It's not often that you have all three descriptions for one place - and one more important one for non-Koreans...patient. We were a bunch of Americans traveling for work and they were patient with us, as well as walked us through the whole process. Beef ribs are their specialty (not the pork ones) and they... More

We were guests of some friends from Seoul and had asked to go to a traditional Kalbi place. They asked at the staff at the Samsung Museum and the KBS station and the answer was unanimous- Kaboung. The place is so popular that they have their own parking garage. We went to one building, but it was full on a... More

It is another Korean grilled beef place in Suwon that is as pricey as Bonsuwon-galbi but the quality of meat and the service staff are matched. There used to be three really good Korean BBQ restaurants in Suwon but now days I would like to recommend Bonsuwon-galbi or Kabojung Kalbi if anyone ask me that they want to try Korean... More

I have lived in Suwon city for over 10 years and have frequented this place many times. This is a place that is attractive to tourists if they desire to experience rib BBQ. It is clean, but the staff do not always speak English althought he menu does have English dish titles.

This restaurant has actually 3 buildings, with several floors each. Its quite amusing to see how much they work! Service: i said this restaurant is mostly targeting businesses because of the services theg provide, such as picking up with their shuttle buses (i assume only in nearby companies, with a minimun # of people, and under reservation ). They also... More

Great ambiance, good choices and varieties of typical korean food condiments, but 45,000 Krw for 1 order (2 pieces) of unmarinated kalbi definately something I would spend on a regular basis. The taste of the food doesn't justify the high price IMO, so I will probably not go back there again. But if you don't mind paying for the ambiance... More
