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.

It is hard to find decent Korean food outside of Queens & Ktown, Manhattan. We enjoyed dinner here recently - had the hot stone bibimbap, scallion pancakes, seafood pancakes, chap chae noodles, BBQ with bulgogi, Kalbi, chicken, and spicy pork - we ate every last morsel. Yum!

I can't proclaim to know what "real" Korean food looks or tastes like, but I can say that I had an excellent meal/encounter at Ssambab! The pickled "side dishes" were a delicious and healthful (as opposed to a basket of white bread!) way to start the meal. Although we didn't do the grilling at our table this time, the self... More

A big, open space that looks like it would get noisy - it was nevertheless quiet on a Saturday afternoon. The food was good -- but we have little comparative experience with Korean food-- and the service acceptable, the place just lacked life. Perhaps it is more bustling in the evening. We do plan to go back - that says... More

Although not a charcoal barbecue, Ssambap does provide table gas grills to cook prime short ribs, beef brisket, duck, lobster, octopus, and scallops. For those who are not in the mood to cook, you can dine on jap chae (potato noodles with vegetables), bibimbap rice bowls with bulgogi, chicken, or tofu, Ssambap, and many other delicious entrees. Great attentive service!

We were thrilled to discover Ssambap Korean BBQ! This was our first try and we were completely surprised by the tender beef, fresh vegetables and dynamic presentation. Our waitress was so friendly and patiently explained and guided us through the various items we ordered. The shrimp dumplings and Kimchi Pajun (Korean Pancake with Kimchi) were delicious appetizers that came quick!... More

I wanted to try Korean BBQ for quite some time and found this restaurant on line. My self and two others ordered Bibimbaps. The food, your choice of protein, choice of rice white or multi grain and you get to chose 7 vegetables. It comes out in a sizzling stone bowl and I chose to add the sauce myself. I... More
