Really enjoyed lunch on Valentines Day. Bimbimbap (sp?) excellent although tofu was store bought, nothing like u get at a Manhattan joint which is silky and top notch. Enjoyed barley tea, waitress was very helpful. Would dine again.

We had first visited Ssambap for a fast lunch and didn't have time to do the actual BarBQ. But this time we went for dinner with our kids (HS and college). We ordered duck, beef tenderloin and pork. There's just the one small grill in the middle of the table and there were 4 of us. Plus they bring out... More

Friendly atmosphere. We really enjoyed the BBQ tables, the food was delicious. We went for the 1st time on January 1st with the family and came back with other friends a week later. It's worth it to try it. Good for any age range. They have a yummy kids menu as well. One of our friend is vegan and he... More

I had a casual dinner here recently with some friends, and, as someone of Korean descent, was hoping for the best, especially since there are very few good Asian restaurants this far out on Long Island. I am sorry to report that the experience was a disappointment. The service was excruciatingly slow, and our waiter was half-asleep and peevish. After... More

Enjoyed lunch here with my girlfriend. Good food and service. A bit pricey, would return more often if it was cheaper. Definitely worth a try if you are into Korean food.

We were going to the movie at the theater down the block and were looking for a place to eat that was close-by. Ssambap actually came up on my smartphone map so I checked the TA reviews and we decided to go. You probably wouldn't try this place if not for the reviews - it's set in a strip mall... More

We went on a Thursday night and although most tables were taken, the restaurant was not too noisy. We chose the BBQ table to cook our own meat and enjoyed everything. Our waitress was very nice and helpful. I recommend this if you are not in a hurry and enjoy having a chat while cooking your food. If you are... More

I came here on Sunday for the first time. I normally get my Korean food in Queens, but I was in the area and I had to try it. I must say, it was great. We had japchae, chicken galbi, bibimbap and bossam. Yes bossam! Although their bossam didnt come with some fresh oysters, it was still good. My first... More

The food is very fresh and tasty. Ask for a table with bbq and get the meat cooked in front of you! The bidimbaps are delicious , great service and decoration.

We've been to this restaurant several times. I am not a big fan of this restaurant. Perhaps because we've been to some pretty good Korean bbq places in Los Angeles and Manhattan. I don't think the food is tasty enough but certainly not horrible.
