This restaurant was excellent. Went with a friend and had the Wonjo Combo for 2, which could easily feed 3 people. The various cuts of meat were delicious and well prepared by the servers.

The pork belly and sliced ox tongue were my favorite cuts.

We also ordered the hae jang guk, which is a stew of ox bone and blood...it was fantastic. (Note : you really have to enjoy the strong, mineral-like flavor of organ meats and blood....which I do).

Service was attentive and fast despite the restaurant being quite crowded.

Very crowded & need reservation if the party is more than 4. Call ahead after 10am to do it. We had a group of 6, came earlier than the set time but were let in because of the reservation. We were glad to dine here although it's a bit pricy. Staff were very attentive & cooked for u all the time. You only had to eat, chat, & enjoy the time there. However, ladies with short/skirt should not sit close to the grill, it can hurt your skin. After finishing food, we were asked if needed anything, otherwise they needed the table for others. It's understandable since NYC is always crowded & we need to share good food ;-)))

We ordered the Meat Mania BBQ set for 2-3 and thoroughly enjoyed every bit of it. There is ample food in this set for 2 grown adults and I suggest ordering starters puts you into overload. Only order extras if you 3 or more at the table. If you are not familiar with Korean food then prepare to be impressed. The set includes excellent beef, chicken and pork; and comes with a whole range of Kimchi accompaniments along with a choice of Tofu soup or rice dish. Your server will cook over the table coal bbq for you and all you need to do is enjoy this gormandisers delight. This is up with the Korean meals best I've had. PS: open 24hrs!

We were staying in Korean District and decided to try this. First time had eaten Korean food and opted for the BBQ Combo between two. Waiters cook all the food over coals at your table - its was a fantastic experience and one to recommend !

Even with our reservation we still waited 45 minutes before we were seated.

Having that said, the food was top notch. From seafood pancake, the best ever tasted, to braised short ribs, galbi, pork belly, all well prepared and seasoned.

Wait staff was courteous and prompt.
