'Korea Town' in Los Angeles is big and there are lots of Korean BBQ spots to consider, but this is definitely one of the best ones! Get the short ribs for sure!

This was our first time eating here on our recent trip to LA and we really enjoyed the food. We had the shrimp, Spencer steak, short ribs, and pork baby back ribs. The amount of food was perfect for four people. Everything was very tasty...More

You will come out reeking of beef--but "ahh" smells so good. Means that you were at a real traditional, old-style, coal fired BBQ joint with great marinated meats. Delish! Gotta go here if you are in LA

This is an amazing place, that still does the whole charcoal thing. Every time I come to LA from Vegas, I have to eat here. The Korean Short Ribs are amazing, and cooking it over the Charcoal gives it that flavor. Personally I like tasting...More

My son lives in L.A. and eats in Korea town a lot. This was his 2nd favorite spot. Couldn't get to his top spot because of an accident and resulting traffic jam. Don't know how the other place could have topped this one except perhaps...More

Excellent Korean BBQ experience. The food was outstanding (especially the thin marinated beef) and the service was very attentive. As you'd expect, the bbqs are literally in front of you on each table so be prepared to smell a little of smoke by the end...More
