You cook your own food that you order (all you can eat), and the food is very fresh and tasty. No complaints about the quality, just found it rather pricey, even though I can eat a lot!

I come to Toronto once a year for business and this is my go to place. I love cooking my own Korean BBQ. The short ribs and the veggies on the grill are to die for! It is a fun spot where you have to slow down, enjoy some conversation and savor everything.

This place is great for an informal dinner with friends, family or a couple. It is all you can eat and it does take some time for the meat to cook but that's what the experience is all about. Their hand rolls are more rice than anything else, and the selected beef is super thin and stringy, but this place... More

The restaurant is large and clean. The staff were helpful. The barbecue was fun to do. The sushi was average at best.

The restaurant is very noisy and their fan system only redistributes the smoke around, there is no proper evacuation. If you go there leave your coats inside of your car, otherwise you'll smell barbecue for days. Waiters kept on forgetting our order and would not change a single time the grill we were using (became all black with the burnt... More

Came here with friends from Richmond Hill. At the first sight it´s in my opinion a korean BBQ with a beautiful interior. We ordered a mountain of food (My friends fault) It all tasted well and fresh. I especially liked the lychee drink! Ordered at least 3 glasses of that stuff. Furthermore it was a fine ambiance, staff was okay... More

We had a wonderful business lunch. The Japanese selection and the BBQ selection was varied. The yaki-soba (fried noodle) could do with a bit less oil.

Fast and friendly service. The sushi rolls were not the greatest but the meat/fish to put on the table grill was fresh and delicious. We would like to return again.
