“It was very good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2014

We'd never been to Korean barbeque before, like a hibachi , but you do the cooking. Unless they think you can't handle the tongs, then they swoop in and take them from you. As happened to me. but the food was awesome. We tried all the different little bowls of appetizers that came before the main platters of raw meat, and every one was fantastic. Then cooking all the meats was so much fun. We ate til we were stuffed. We were there with a party of 16, took over two of the side rooms. We were there for 3 hours, could have been there for longer. The hood over the table didn't work/or wasn't turned on, so by the time we were ready to leave the room was quite smoky, but we didn't mind. It added to the ambiance of the experience.

“the best korean barbeque in this area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014

There are not too many Korean resturants around this area. This resturant has "cook your own" Korean barbeque tables for the whole resturant. They serve very generous side dishes,too. Serving is huge. Since pretty much every tables are cooking barbeque in the resturant, don't dress up too much. otherwise, you need to wash the barbeque smelled dress!

“Attractive and Delicious”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2014

Outside there is a rather barren parking lot with a strip of stores where there is a plain large red neon sign for the restaurant. What a surprise inside. On entering you see a huge ornate wooden door with elegant metal fittings. Entrance doors to the right lead to to a large attractive dining room with metal-decorated walls and black laquer tables. We were seated at a large rear booth at a table with the barbque grill in the middle and attended to quickly. We ordered the beef barbque for 4, a sushi roll, and shumai. The last two extra items were excellent, but totally unnecessary. The dinner included huge dish with 4 different types of beef to be cooked at the table, 2 soups, scallion pancakes, a scallion salad, and numerous condiments, including different types of kimchi. There was a huge amount of food, and it was all delicious. We had enough left over for all 4 for us to take home for another meal. As we were cooking, a woman came to give us a clean cooking grill plate three times. The only weak points were that we were given only 4 pieces of lettuce which was not nearly enough for for wrapping the vast amounts of beef. And, the wait staff disappeared half way through the meal so it was difficult to ask for anything more, and, when we did request more lettuce, it didn't come. Also, because of the bbq, one may leave with the smell of cooked food lingering on clothing and hair. However, it was a delicious dinner, a great experience, and economical for the amount of food. If one wants, there are also other dinners, like soups, and extensive choices of sushi, which are less expensive, We are looking forward to returning and trying something different. We went early so didn't need reservations, but the place got full so they may be a a good idea, if they take them.
