The food is spectacular! BBQ prime rib and seafood are of the highest quality. The all you can eat banchan are all fantastic. Great service and atmosphere add to the whole experience. Yes the price isn't cheap but everyone was extremely full and satisfied.

Although a little pricey and no reservations taken, this place is excellent. I always go with family and try to go at an off-time, like late afternoon for dinner around 3-4 p.m. The banchan is excellent, and the staff will replenish whatever you like. The...More

Food - excellent. Unquestionably delicious and definitely something to cater to all tastes. The entire concept was fascinating and a true experience. Service - given the nature of Korean BBQ it's a very intimate service and as a result it was excellent. Our server was...More

We had family & friends gathering including kids with ages from 2-6yo. We made a reservation ahead, and a nice room was reserved for us. They brought out small portion rice/soup/dry seaweed just for kids. The food was a little more expensive than typical Korean...More

I came here about 3 years ago because I love Korean food and wanted to try the KBBQ experience. It blew me (and my coworkers) away. Well I hadn't had the opportunity to make it back out to LA since until recently. As soon as...More

Despite being far from Koreatown, this is probably the best KBBQ I've had. Food and service were both great. Parking is usually rough in this neighborhood but it's especially easy with a valet in the garage.

I have been to Genwa on many occasions over the past 3 years. It never fails. First and foremost, the service is excellent. The hosts and waitstaff are great at customer service, something that you won't always find a little further east in Koreatown. As...More

Crowded and very friendly place. Very yummy food and wine. We ordered Bulgogi prepared by the kitchen which was somewhat sweet and very tasty. We got a pancake that we hadn't ordered. We thought it was part of the meal but we ended up paying...More
