We stayed with friends who wanted to take us out to a Korean barbecue for dinner. They chose this one and 7 of us went to eat dinner there a couple of days ago. The meat selection was good - especially the Korean short ribs...More

I continue to look for a really good Korean BBQ place in Seattle. I am not sure why it is so hard to find, but outside of Vancouver or LA I just can't find it. This place has good reviews on Yelp and trip advisor...More

This is a Korean BBQ/buffet place. The prepared foods on the steaming tables didn't stay warm or weren't very warm to begin with. It was our first time at a cook-your-own meat place and the staff didn't speak enough English to really help us much,...More

I have been coming here for several years. Their marinated meat is very good. Have tried several Korean BBQ and this place has good meat selection and the price is very reasonable. Try placing the snow crab legs on the grill to heat it up....More

It was $16 for all you can eat. Buffet usually gives me a really bad impression on their food, especially for meats. I was impressed the first time I went there, they provide lots of options. Just the sauce and dessert are the only turn-downs....More
