Had lunch here with business colleagues and everyone enjoyed their meals. Great food and service. The lunch menus were confusing as everyone seemed to have a different version ( v1.2, v1.3, or v1.4) all with different items on them but the food was delicious!

But our staff is always willing to clarify any questions you may have had. All that to say, we can't wait to see you again soon and serve up some more of your... More

Keo Ku has the best Korean BBQ in NJ and just as good, if not better, than in Manhattan! The Bulgogi is out standing and the glass noodles and bi bim bop are my favorite! The staff is always attentive and curteous. They always help you navigate your way through the menu making your experience very comfortable especially if your... More

Flattered to be considered the best KBBQ in New Jersey, Arthur! The bulgogi is definitely a staff favorite, so we're glad to hear that you're liking it just as much! As always, the team appreciates the awesome recommendation and can't wait to serve up some more BBQ for you again sometime soon! The Keo Ku Family More

This Korean Restaurant serves excellent authentic Korean dishes with plenty of Puncha (traditional Korean side dishes normally served before any meal such as Kimchi). But my favorite is beef short rib (Garbi Gui) Grill in front of you. I like it here because they give you a lot of Garbi when compare with other Korean restaurant in Fort Lee area.... More

My husband and I had dinner at this Korean restaurant. It has been a few years since we were last there. The side dishes lacked taste for the most part. I had bulgogi over rice. The meat was tasteless. My husband had the bulgogi and noodles (in a soup). It was served with rice but the noodles were few and... More

One of the places we also go to for Korean BBQ. This offers BBQ and hotpot. Good for big groups since they have little alcoves for bigger groups for at least 10 people. Like I said this restaurant offers Korean BBQ which they grill in front of you, also quite a number of "banchan" or side dishes. My kids love... More

We're happy that our staff took care of you, Mitch and Kay. A great atmosphere and phenomenal customer service are constant goals of ours. As for preference, we like to think Korean BBQ can be done plenty of different ways, so we're sorry we're not the best you've had as compared to NYC/Flushing, but we are always striving to get...

Literally, just like my mother used to make. I've been coming here since they opened in the 90's. The food seems better than ever recently. If you'd like an authentic, delicious experience, share the bossam with a friend over a couple of beers or cool off with the mul naengmyun on a hot day. The menu is extensive and there... More

My wife and I go to Keo Ku anytime we need a quick Korean food fix. Unfortunately, the food quality pales in comparison to what you get in K-town in New York City. While the bulgogi, galbi and other bbqed meats are pretty good quality, other selections are slightly off. The bibimbap lacks a bit of flavor. The seafood pancakes... More

We're glad that you're able to come to us as a nice way to spend an evening with your friends.

I love experimenting with different ethnic foods and was very excited to try Korean BBQ. Not knowing exactly what to expect, I thought the experience was a lot of fun. I found the service to be very good considering how little English the waitress understood. The place itself was almost a glorified cafeteria setting. I expected a little nicer atmosphere... More

I recently went to Keo Ku for lunch with several co-workers and found the experience relaxing and enjoyable and were very satisfied. The exterior of the building is nothing to write home about, it's in a older strip mall, I found the interior fine, it's not new, but by no means outdated or shabby. We were promptly greeted and seated... More

Our lunch at Keo Ku was one of our last meals during our month-long visit to the US and Canada. By this time, I have already tried Danji in NYC and Miga in Mississauga for Korean food. And I would say that after those two, Keo Ku was an anti-climax. I have eaten a lot of Galbi (Beef short ribs)... More
