One of the Best Korean BBQ in the area, Dinner has better selection than Lunch. The best meet they have are the BBQ Short Ribs but sadly for lunch they dont serve those. Lines can get pretty bad for lunches but its worth the wait the best selection, fresh meet and fresh food.

We have been going to this restaurant for over 25 years and have never reviewed the food, or service at our favorite restaurant, Well here goes. My favorite food item is BBQ Kalbi - tender, juicy almost melts in your mouth with their signature sauce, served on a sizzling platter just soooo delicious… I often have it with Bibimngmyun rice...

Wow! This is by far the best Korean I've ever experienced. The cook just kept bringing samples of everything and I got to taste a little bit of everything and it was all amazing! You will not be disappointed. I'm amazed that this place isn't packed but I like the personalized attention that comes from being fairly empty.

Especially if you like BBQ as they have the BBQ tables where you cook yourself. They have a large separate banqueting / reception room that seems to be well used by the local... More

There are many menu choices and the waiter was extremely helpful in suggesting which items to try. The food was presented well and was very tasty. I would definitely go back next time I am in the area.

If you go with more than 4 people, the birthday person is free. We visited in one of the birthday occasion. Food is good. Make sure you make reservation. Weekend can be a long line. Just be prepare to have a smelly cloth afterwards.

They used to offer buffet all week. They now changed it to Friday's only. So come early for lunch or there might be no space. The restaurant has been completely renovated 3 months ago! Food is great and fresh!

This place is by no means a fancy Korean restaurant, but the food here is good and the service here is above and beyond what you would expect from any Korean eatery. They are very kind, follow-up with you to make sure you have enough sides and drinks. The owner himself will great you and make sure the food is... More
