“A Hidden Gem!”
Reviewed August 29, 2012

I've been here about 8 times and have never disappointed. When people hear that you have to cook your own food, they often get turned off. In reality it's kinda fun, super quick, and you get to cook things to your own liking. The meat is sliced thin, marinated, and tastes great. The veggies, sides, rice, and sauce are pretty good too. There is a little remote where you push a button for either for food, drinks, or the bill. That way the waiter doesn't bother you when you don't need anything, and you don't have to wait for them to come since they come as soon as you push the button. This way you always get good service. You can't go wrong for $19.99 for all you can eat good quality food. I don't live in Thunder Bay any longer, but every time I visit, I always am sure to go here. I recently went to a Korean BBQ in Victoria, BC and it doesn't even compare. Can't wait to go back to Flame!

“Something Different”
Reviewed April 26, 2012

Had the Korean BBQ and it was pretty good. Dont be in a rush when you come here. Relax and tlk while you cook your own dinner. sounds self defeating, but its kind of fun. Lots of different ingredients and they keep bringing it out. Our first visit, they kept coming and offering more, but the second visit, we had to ask to be replenished. i didn't like that part.

“NAAAA”
Reviewed January 2, 2012

The meats are fatty, and for $22/person I really find its a waste of my money and rather go spend it somewhere else for what the quality of food is not!

“Clean, Fun & Unique”
Reviewed October 14, 2011

I've been here twice. Great service, fresh ingredients and absolutely spotless. This is the perfect place to go with a group of friends and make an evening out of it. The grills get sticky after a while. Other Korean BBQ restaurants offer to change them after a while but they never do here. That's the only thing I'd change.
The previous reviewer who gave it 1 out of 5 and didn't even go inside. Everyone is entitled to their opinion but it should be based on more that looking at a building from the outside.
