There were five of us and we were not sure what to order. We decided to go with the family dinner style. We were pleasantly surprised to have so much meat for BBQ and they were marinated so well, it was a feast. I didn't care for the Korean pancake nor the tofu soup that came with the meal. But...

This is a great place to go anytime of the day and it really replicates a Korean dining experience in Korea almost to a T. First thing people need to realize is that this is not your standard dining experience. Theres a button on your table, so push it if you need service, if someone doesn't come by to help... More

I went on a date with someone who had never been to a Korean restaurant. She absolutely loved it and found it to be an amazing experience and totally delicious! So a win there.

This unique experience of Korean BBQ was introduced to me by Mom from my kids' school. I had never eaten at this type of restaurant and was guided through it by our server. The tastes of the numerous side dishes keep me guessing and it was a feast for the senses. I returned with my family in tow and my... More

We managed to reserve a private room for business purpose. We needed a quite place to discuss business while enjoying the Korean food. We've ordered few dishes to share amongst 9 people and ordered separate dishes for individual consumption. Food was good in most part however, it is geared toward non-Korean palette. It was bit too sweet for me personally.... More

This was an experiment for four adult - an experiment as non of us was familiar with Korean food. With some help from the waitress we wended our with though the menu and ordered; we are not too adventurous. We did well; the chosen items arrived in reasonable tile and were very hot (thermally). We had ordered four items and... More

It was good but service can be a little slow but understandable when they're super busy. They have private rooms for private functions or large parties which is nice.

This place used to be really good. I remember visiting several years ago and the barbecue and seafood pancake used to be fantastic and the portions were very decent. But now, things have really changed for the worse. First of all, the quality of the meat has gone down way too much. Sometimes it looks like they are using junk... More

We always get the BBQ meat platter. The sides and condiments are delicious here, and Insadong makes my favourite japche. I never feel rushed like they need our BBQ for other guests, so we eat and cook and eat and cook and enjoy the whole evening. Reasonably priced bottles of wine (small selection), but why would you bother when they... More

I love Kieran BBQ. To me, the most important and also the critical basic of being a good Korean BBQ restaurant is to serve guests the best fresh cut of meat possible whether it is beef, chicken, pork or whatever etc. To me, also, the worst Korean BBQ restaurant is restaurant not meeting this basic criteria. We came last night... More
