I went recently to Road to Seoul while we were visiting LA and we wanted to try a new AYCE Korean BBQ place from ones we had tried in the past. The menu options at Road to Seoul are amazing- the quality of the food was also excellent. The service is a little lacking, but not enough to make it... More

Because of language barrier we didn't know we could have had shrimp. But still, plenty of beef & chicken was presented. There is a BBQ grill at every table so you cook your own beef, chicken, fish, shrimp, lobster, Select from 4 different menu options. All you can eat. Unique experience to it once.

Outstanding & delicious dinner. The servers were fast, quality high, we had so many choices to eat. We tried like 8 different choices. Each of us purchased the three meat option and enjoyed each one. Price was extremely reasonable for the amount of food you get. We called ahead and got reservations and it's good we did the place was... More

They've removed a lot of the old photos and stickers that used to make this place great. Food is still good but it lacks the little things that used to make it special.

We sat down and the waiter was attentive to us. He gave us menus, korean side dishes, and drinks. There were large groups at each table and only one other family with kids next to us. First of all, the atmosphere was not what we expected. It was very loud, noisy, and they played obnoxious club music. We respect and... More

I went there twice with friends. All you can eat barbeque and very reasonable prices. The music is a little too loud, so you have to yell when you talk but overall I would go back for the food.

When I was planning my visit to LA, I knew I needed to try some Korean BBQ. Here in the states in general, Korean BBQ has yet to take off. In LA, however, it has exploded. I didn't know exactly what I wanted, i just know it needed to be all-you-can-eat so I could have the chance to try everything.... More

Went yesterday for lunch and what a terrific find! The place is huge, lots of seating with grills at each table. They only take reservation for 10 or more so get there early as it's popular and gets crowded. The specialty is the variety of their meat selections. They have all the regulars and more... They also do their own... More

This is my favorite KBBQ place in LA. The meat is always seasoned just right and you can cook it just how you want it. The kimchi is always very good. I prefer rice with mine, calms the flavor down for those who don't like spicy kimchi. Don't forget to order the brisket and steak also! Staff is always friendly... More
