Food: great first experience with Korean barbeque. Atmosphere: Very informal. Plastic cups for water. Service: very hands on and quick. Many waiters. They seemed very tired (we came after 10 pm). Communication difficult, we seldom knew what was in front of us. Noise: loud-ish music,...More

We went in a group of 6 so that we got a variety of foods. The meat eaters got beef and pork and loved it. As a vegan, I got glass noodles with vegetables and it was great. The kimchee was tasty but they only...More

First time at Korean BBQ. Fantastic vibe with so much energy, so much activity, K Pop playing and excellent food. Quite a frantic pace, but that’s all part of the experience.

Jongro BBQ is a great Korean reaturant located in the midst of many Korean eatery spots, with many crowded due to great food and cool city vibe.

Big restaurant on second floor. Food was very tasty with meats being tender. They had a vast selection and the food was cooked at the table. I have eaten in many Korean BBQ's and found the service fast but they kept rotating staff and I...More

Wanted to try a classic Korean barbeque. We did and were fully satisfied. Meet quality was excellent, and service was very attentive. A bit pricey, since the menu that was recommended for three, left some of us hungry. Worth a try.

This is a really good Korean restaurant in the Korea Town area of New York. It's actually on the second floor of a building, and the lift and entrance are pretty unprepossessing, but once inside it's a revelation, with the whole place done out like...More

It all depends on the number of people eat and what meat selection and drinks. I had a party of 3 people and it was about 50 bucks per person. I would recommended going to Flushing, if you have a car. Well worth it.

Pretty sure there is no buffet. Small portions and tad pricey.
