I had never had Korean BBQ before, so my boyfriend took me here to try it as we were in Vancouver for the weekend and passing by. It's a very different experience, but very enjoyable! The staff were quick and efficient in bringing out the food and assisting us along the way. Lots of variety in food, and all quite... More

I was staying at the hotel next door and decided to give it a try. I had bolgolgi and even though the menu said you needed 2 or more to cook at the table, they still cooked at my table without asking. Food was great, polite service.

Delicious food, friendly service. Accommodated an infant and a toddler. The budae jigea is a favourite and spicy pork was amazing. Hot burners built into tables lets you have hot food all the time! Worth a visit!!

Insadong is a pretty solid and authentic Korean BBQ experience. I wish it had more pork offerings, but what they do have is pretty good. Like many Korean BBQ places they have the buttons on the tables to request service, which I love. It really makes it so much more efficient to get refills, more sides, and, eventually, your bill....

There were five of us and we were not sure what to order. We decided to go with the family dinner style. We were pleasantly surprised to have so much meat for BBQ and they were marinated so well, it was a feast. I didn't care for the Korean pancake nor the tofu soup that came with the meal. But...

This is a great place to go anytime of the day and it really replicates a Korean dining experience in Korea almost to a T. First thing people need to realize is that this is not your standard dining experience. Theres a button on your table, so push it if you need service, if someone doesn't come by to help... More

I went on a date with someone who had never been to a Korean restaurant. She absolutely loved it and found it to be an amazing experience and totally delicious! So a win there.

This unique experience of Korean BBQ was introduced to me by Mom from my kids' school. I had never eaten at this type of restaurant and was guided through it by our server. The tastes of the numerous side dishes keep me guessing and it was a feast for the senses. I returned with my family in tow and my... More

We managed to reserve a private room for business purpose. We needed a quite place to discuss business while enjoying the Korean food. We've ordered few dishes to share amongst 9 people and ordered separate dishes for individual consumption. Food was good in most part however, it is geared toward non-Korean palette. It was bit too sweet for me personally.... More
