There are a ton of Korean BBQ options, and the wait is 1-2 hours on a Saturday night. I was in town for my graduation, and I wanted to find a place that could accommodate 7-8 people on a whim. We were able to make a reservation at the last minute and arrived within 20 minutes of making the reservation.... More

Before popping on the close by 405 freeway to head for the airport, I stopped for a late lunch at this shopping center restaurant as it looked much more interesting than Subway which was nearby. I'm glad I did. My Korean chicken came with a small feast of side dishes. Service was fast and the waitress brought more of my... More

I'm from NYC, so i'm pretty used to good Korean food (I'm also a 100% korean). The meat (L.A. Karlbi) wasn't anything special... I was quite disappointed with the service. In Korean BBQ houses, the waiters/waitresses constantly cook your meat for you, and change out the grill plates (so the oils don't burn and get on the meats). At this... More

This is our go to Korean BBQ restaurant. We usually get the all you can eat BBQ. There's one for $15.99, $19.99, and $24.99. The list of items gets longer when you pay more. The side dishes are good. The BBQ meats are good too. We often order beef and chicken bulgogi and garlic marinated pork belly. My daughter loves... More

Great food and service is efficient. The vegetable are tasty and fresh, the meat is a little too fatty but still it is good:-) We enjoyed to cook on the grill in the middle of the table. Nice experience.

I get the urge for Korean food once in awhile and was happy to find this one closer to my home than driving to Garden Grove. The food here is pretty good, not fantastic. They serve almost too many pan chan dishes at once but they were all good. The BBQ meats were fine, especially the taegi bul goggi and... More

This is better then average Korean restaurent. I would rate this place 8 from 1-10 scale. It's clean and upscale looking inside. Prices are little higher then average but food is good. They seem to have great lunch specials. I do want to mention after reading bad reviews, a lot of Korean restaurents have door bell like button at the... More

This restaurant is horrible. The staff is ignorant and does not care about its customers. The food is okay but it can be better.
