Large variety of buffet items. Typical salads with greens and dressing. More interesting were the Korean side dishes like kimchee and bean sprouts. Sweet potato vermicelli jap chae was the best. Sushi had several items , none of which were memorable or especially tasty. Different lunch entrees cooked on table: beef bulgogi, soy beef, soy chicken and shrimp. Dessert was... More

I went to Hee Been yesterday for lunch for the first time. I am not from the area, but am familiar with Korean restaurants. If you dine here, it is a safe bet you are going to get a good meal for a reasonable price, and you will not leave hungry. You can go to the buffet as many times... More

We have been coming to DC once a year for the past 6 years and one of the main things we looked forward to doing was going to Heebeen. Unfortunately they have changed their buffet. Previously it was all you can eat and had so many wonderful meat and vegetable offerings. Now each table is only allowed 3 meats so... More

Went as a girls night out last week and had to return with my "hunny" this weekend, huge buffet to chose from. Two gentlemen making fresh sushi, then the feast begins you pick your raw meat or shrimp and bring it back to your table where the waitstaff will grill and come back to turn and snip your freshly grilled...

Absolutely nothing wrong with the service. This was my "go to" for years. Went there for my birthday, and found too late it is a buffet. So disappointed. My plan to introduce my wife to bulgogi dashed. I was hoping for a sit down served meal, and when we toured the establishment, she saw the tripe, and it was over.... More

Brunch here is outstanding, and an excellent value. The sushi is good, with nice variety -- not top-quality Japanese sushi, but very good. There are many Asean and Thai dishes, and of course the Korean ones -- that's the home team, so those dishes are especially good. Service is pleasant, unhurried, maybe a little too unhurried for some tastes, but... More

If you like Korean food and you have a big appetite then this is the place for you. This is the second time we have visited and the food is pretty good. We went as a group of 10 and it was a nice relaxing lunch, not rushed and hectic like most buffets. Because they grill for you I recommend... More

Buffet style restaurant where you pick your uncooked meats and cook it at your table. It's a different concept but your clothes will smell like cooked meat upon exiting the restaurant. Meat cuts are not top quality but eatable. If I ever come back I will probably bring my kids to experience it once and that's it.

Friday night is buffet night at Hee Been. The serving tables are stuffed with fish, meat, salads, vegetables, noodles and rice -- anything that you would expect from a variety of Asian cuisines. The sushi bar is extra special with some very creative blending of ingredients for their rolls. The Korean touch is evident with a grill at each table... More
