“Korean BBQ in Hamilton!”
Reviewed 27 February 2014

We went here for a family birthday. The food was very good and service was attentive and prompt. We opted for the all you can eat bbq (they also have an a la carte menu). The menu at dinner has a better variety of meats/seafood and includes vegetables and lettuce. We chose to have ox tongue, beef, beef short ribs, calamari, shrimp, zucchini, mushrooms, and pineapple. The pineapple was amazing grilled. The only complaint at our table was that the shrimp were difficult to peel. It would be nice if they de-vained the shrimp so it would be easier to peel off the shell.

The meal also includes miso soup, rice, ice cream and green tea. I liked the ordering process here better than some other Korean BBQ places in Toronto. Ushao lets you order which meats/ seafood/vegetables you want, rather than sending you everything. This allowed us to order only what we preferred without having to tell the server what we didn't want. You can also indicate how many orders of rice and miso soup you would like.

I will definitely be back to have more beef ribs!

“Cook it the way you like it.”
Reviewed 2 September 2013

This is a little hidden gem. Who ever thought that you could have fun cooking your own food.

UShao offers a gas fired bbq at every tbale for patrons to cook it up the way that they want. You order from an all-you-can-eat menu and choices include beef, pork, chicken, ox tongue, short ribs, sausage, calamari, shrimp, basa, mussels, etc... Mushrooms, onions, peppers, zucchini complete the offerings.

You also get kimchi and some other small side dishes.

Various ice cream flavours and a couple other desserts finish the meal.

Price with tax and tip is about $25 a person. It closes a bit early (10:30 I think).

Service was good and the general atmosphere is clean and spacious.

Enjoy!

“Korean BBQ”
Reviewed 1 September 2013

arrived around 8pm on a Saturday, lots of seating available, we were served right away, $22.00 per person, there was 3 of us, also ordered 4 beers and Tea, total bill with tax was just under 100 bucks. Service and atmosphere was excellent, the food was good. We would eat there again.
the only thing I did not like about Ushao is the hours, they close at 10:30pm

“korean bbq do it yourself”
Reviewed 14 July 2013

went to this new restaurants twice, first time with some friends and second time with family members. Both times excellent.Both times went around 1 pm., first time ordered from lunch menu, second time ordered from the dinner selection,a few dollars more. Well worth the upgrade.Started with miso soup and then got multitudes of trays full of calamari,beef,chicken,lamb,shrimp,mussels,,short ribs,mushrooms,onions,green and red peppers. It was thinly slice items that you cook over a gas grill on the table.Finished with green tea ice cream.Dinner menu selection was $16 per person all you can eat.The bill for three people with 4 imported beers,tea was less than $100 with taxes and tip(approx.).We all enjoyed doing the cooking and sharing the excellent flavors of the marinated beef and seafood.Service was quick and pleasant.Will return over and over..
