Nice atmosphere, average service, small servings for the price. A bit of fun if you feel like having your own little BBQ on your table

Very good value for Korean grill. The service is good too as the waiter helped us to grill all the beef short ribs in the right temperature.

Stopped buy on the off chance and found this to be a great restaurant. I had the Bossam Rice $17, came with 6 side dishes (see photo). The food was excellent quality. A definite recommendation for tasty food on a budget.
