“Not the same since mom and pop retired”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2012

This was a family and friend choice for large group parties, special occaions and a drop by because it had been awhile and we were craving the food. We frequented this restaurant over a period of about 15 years and were always delighted.

The original mom and pop have retired and the restaurant is now run by their children. The traditions were still there but the food was disappointing. It lacked the zest and flavour and overall not a place we will frequent again. This is really a shame as they were well known as the #1 Korean place to eat.

“Great as always!”

Even PSY would eat here! Take-out business is very busy and the food is well loved by the people near this little neighbourhood restaurant.

I've been going to Bul-Go-Gi for years, it's a favourite standard - good food, fast service, reasonable prices.

“best Korean food in Edmonton”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2012

Went to BulGoGi recently and have been going there for about 30 years now. Food has not changed in all those years! It is fantastic tasting and of excellent quality. The restaurant looks pretty much the same (kind of rustic/old), prices are up somewhat, but the food is the best.
