“Unexpected surprise, a great experience”
Reviewed January 30, 2013 via mobile

Visited here solely due to the reviews on Trip Advisor. We've never had Korean BBQ before and didn't know what to expect. They have 3 set menus in the evening and we went for option 1. We had little dumplings for starter which were great. The main consisted of a selection of raw meats (some marinated) for you to cook on the grill built into your table. With that was lots of side dishes. The dessert was a yummy refreshing ice lolly! Absolutely loads to eat and a great experience. Highly recommended..!

“Great Korean BBQ”
Reviewed January 4, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant was #52 when we went. It was a hair off our beaten track, but worth it. We leave a 17 and a 10 year old and everyone found something they like.

“Amazing, fun meal. Best Korean BBQ I've ever had”
Reviewed December 23, 2012

Meat.ing was great. I had no expectations going in, but it turned out to be better than i could have expected. I've had a lot of Korean BBQ through my travels through California in the US, and this was head and shoulders above that. The quality of the ingredients was great and you get endless refills of the sides (as in most Korean BBQ places).

We were thoroughly satisfied with Menu 1 which was pork and beef both marinated and un-marinated.

The only negative i have to mention was the desert. It was a korean popsicle with melon and cream that was served in it's plastic wrapper on a plate. It was a bit odd and i would have appreciated a different presentation rather than eating it off of its stick.

I would definitely eat here again. I wish it was in my home town here in Holland. I would eat it every week!!!

“Great food, good service”
Reviewed December 22, 2012

Very nice restaurant. We had a great meal, even though the dessert was somewhat disappointing (the ice cream was still in the pacakage). Menu 1 comes with a lot of meat and side dishes, plenty of great food. Service was good. Restaurant seems fairly new, nice design and interior.

“Great!”
Reviewed December 5, 2012

Very good service and quality food! Good atmosphere and friendly staff. Choose menu 1, this is great because of the amount of beef you get. Dessert is something different than other desserts.
