The waiters are so nice, the food is excellent, and the restaurants atmosphere is great. This place has the best Korean food that I've had so far.

“Looking for the best Korean restaurant in L A”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013 via mobile

In LA for the weekend & thought this would be THE place to partake of Korean Bar BQ since it is one of our favorite ethnic cuisines & that there was no shortage of Korean restaurants to choose from. The restaurant was extremely clean, the waiter was friendly & attentive, & gave us a history of Korean culture when questions were asked. Numerous side dishes, tasty miso soup; high quality prime Galbi and pork bulgogi and side sauces were tasty as well. Glad we went but probably would not be a repeat customer. Good restaurant but not a truly memorable meal. Will search for another Korean restaurant next time we're in L A. Would give Genwa a 7 on a one time experience.

“Great lunch with friends!”

Very friendly service, and plenty if willing help in learning about all the garnishes/appetizers. The multi course meals are a great value and fun to share! highly recommend! Can't wait to bring my wife back with me next time!

“Excellent food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2013 via mobile

Was there to go for korean bbq and was not disappointed at all. Despite living in asia for quite a while and visiting korea on a regular basis, these folks have lived up to the expectations. Wagyu ribeye beef so tasty that i still get a smile on my face...:-) also you get a lot more side dishes than in korea that is a bonus as well.
Waiters where very helpful, customer oriented and friendly. Strong recommendation if you are in need of high quality korean food in la!

“Friendly fast service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2013

We have been wanting to take Korean BBQ for a spin ever since we moved to Korea town, but were a little scared. I heard this place was a little more expensive then some of the local places but the quality was worth it and I haven't been any where else but I am picky about quality of meat and I loved it! We had a course A and a couple of drinks and it was such a good time. We had a few different people check on us id we needed refills and how every thing tasted or if we even wanted more meat. The only problem we had was we were so full we couldn't finish our soup and salad and didn't leave room for desert. If you have been wanting to dip your toes into KBBQ I would definitely recommend it.
