This is best Korean AYCE in town. Very fresh meat and quick and nice service. Definitely recommend it.

This restaurant caters to the persons with large appetite. The menu is all you can eat, but the waiters will bring out your meat selection, and you can only order 3 types at a time to prevent waste. The quality of the meats are fresh and delicious. The Side dishes (ban Chan) are equally good and filling. The price for... More

I forgot to review this restaurant. Probably because it was not too memorable. My friends were raving about how good this place was. Some of my friends and I got together to check it out ourselves. As soon as you walk in, you smell food cooking and smoke. We were greeted by a waitress that sat us down in a... More

Great family-like cook at your table BBQ. Lot of food if you go for the AYCE option. Nice to have the half-dish option when you try something new and not sure if you like it (they charge extra if you waste food... Which is the right approach to control cost.) Will come back. Make reservation b/c the wait will be... More

I'm not a big fan of AYCE Korean BBQ. However, Manna delivered with a combination of meat quality and service. We went with the mid-level A-1 tier of meats. Unless you're a pork jowel lover like me, paying $5 less per person and going with the standard A-2 tier is the way to go. My wife makes kickass galbi and... More

I don't particularly enjoy Korean BBQ. The staff was very courteous and cheerful. Very responsive, even as the main dinner time crowd filled up the restaurant. The waiters were very attentive that one end of the table was gobbling done one cut, while the other end slowed down to let the food settle.

So a coworker brought me to his local Korean BBQ and showed me the ropes. It is a very fun way to have a meal. I can not compare it to any other BBQ place but service was fast and efficient. Prices seem in line with the area. It gets pretty busy so if you do not make a reservation... More

Meats, veggies, meats, garnishes, meats, and did I mention meats? You can order as much meat as you like, cook it on the grill, and voila! Dinner. Really, though, this is the best Korean BBQ I have had in the USA, hands down. Parking is a massive problem (and the only problem) with this restaurant. I've had my car towed... More
