This Korean BBQ food are very good and fresh. Meat quality is super. Must try when you are in LA. Very friendly service and parking is easy just at the back of the restaurant. I highly recommend this restaurant.

In the LA area to visit my fiance's son and to celebrate my graduation from USC, we decided to meet at Genwa, based on location and the rave reviews on tripadvisor. The food was excellent and we were quite pleased until we departed the restaurant...More
