“Nothing special, really.”
Reviewed August 18, 2013 via mobile

Went there yesterday for dinner. Heard all the fuss about this restaurant being legit and really good, just like korean bbqs you have in LA. So gave it a try. Mehhhh food was so mediocre. Marinated galbi and tongue was average, really nothing special. It was so.. Normal... Japchae was okay. Bibimpip and spicy tofu jogae was tasteless! The only good thing was the pork, the first item on the menu. Thats it. Pretty much a waste of time and calories. So many more better korean bbqs restraurants in jakarta!

“Original..!”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

One of the most genuine korean taste resto in Jakarta, among others korean resto which located on the same road, I found BornGa has the nicest beef galbi BBQ and best doenjang chigae soup. You can also tell by the minute you enter the place, most of the customer are native korean family enjoying the good food.
The price maybe a bit expensive for a local standard, you may consider to spend around $70 -$100 for 2 pax.

Located next to Tobak restaurant, the service was ok. The environment was nice. Bornga has a very courteous Korean manager. Food was ok. Price affordable.

“Korean BBQ Frequented by Koreans”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

You know it's a good Korean restaurant when many Koreans visit the restaurant regularly. The greeter often includes a Korean restaurant manager & the atmosphere is busy as the restaurant is regularly packed with a mix of Koreans & locals alike.

The food is good although the ribs were a bit tough today but overall it's a good value for what you pay for. In addition to the tasty meat dishes, there are other condiments & good serving of vegetables provided as well as free-flow green tea & fruit desserts.

Be prepared to come out with coal smoke clinging to your clothes but at least your attire should smell delicious!
