We had a large gathering in a private room. The hospitality was very good. The selection of appetizers, from sushi to beef and vegetables, was rich and well prepared. The main course selection was a bit limited - not sure if it was the standard menu or something specific for our meeting. In any case, my soup was good. Beer... More

We had a memorable Korean BBQ meal and the staff showed us how to enjoy the meal. One kind lady helped us grill the BBQ through out the dinner. If you don't know how to eat a Korean BBQ feast, don't hesitate to go here, because they will show you how, and honestly advice you on what and how much... More

The food seems smaller compared to normal Korean restaurants. Also it is fairly expensive compared to normal Korean restaurant for the same dishes.

Have been to many Korean BBQ restaurants in North America and S. Korea, this one is up there! It was traditional Korean food/BBQ with all the side dishes. Restaurant is in the heart of the Korean area of New Jersey too!

Northern New Jersey has its share of Korean style BBQ restaurants. Among these Poong Lim is at the top. Kalbi (short ribs) comes in marinated and non marinated versions and there are other meat varieties as well. Friendly staff will assist with the table top cooking while youth enjoy many side dishes that are unique to the Korean cuisine, including... More

Great Korean restaurant, good location. Restaurant has two sections, party rooms and BBQ grills. I love Korean BBQ. My favorite is Galbi(beef). Can't go wrong with it. Seats are comfortable. Just a little smoky. Need to improve the ventilation system.

Go for the Bulgogi and the hot Bibimbap... avoid the cold tea and make it piping hot. Worth the meal, the service is very good.

This huge restaurant serves very average Korean food. It's a good place to come for a wedding reception or a large gathering. But if you're looking for outstanding food or a good place for a dinner with a few friends, keep looking.
