Before going to Korea, I tried to search for a great Korean BBQ restaurant as I really love it. Saw some mixed comments about this restaurant. Decided to give a try as my hotel was near to Myeongdong.

Not difficult to find this place. When I arrived, it was about 6pm so the place was not crowded. However, the restaurant was almost full at about 7.30pm. There are many Chinese speaking staff around so not an issue for ordering of food.

I would say this was not the best Korean BBQ that I had. The pork belly was "OK", but the beef was a bit too hard. The price was reasonable. You may give a try if you are in Myeongdong but not a great lost if you missed it.

Our first Korean BBQ in Korea was with their store in Jeju island. Very friendly and helpful staff. We tried a few other korean bbq during our trip and find theirs more value for money. Street food are expensive in Korea, so i think their price is good. The meat is good and juicy. We also tried their outlet in Myeongdong, it's very busy and turn over is very fast. We had to pay for additional egg in Myeongdong outlet but not at the Jeju one.

Grill meat place just in the heart of myeongdong. Some of the personnel were a bit rude, but others were very kind and made sure to check if we were grilling the meat right. Good price and quality ratio. If you take the set menus you can get the best deal.
Grilled meat, especially pork is so so good, but remember that you have to salt and marinate the meat by your own.
Little suggestion: Korean food may be kind of heavy on the stomach, so avoid to eat too much rice.

We were around Myeong dong area and wanted to have some bbq so we follow trip advisor's ranking and went this restaurant. Didn't need to wait too long which was good. We ordered the beef set as my wife prefers beef than pork. Meat quality is just about average, but the service is not particularly great. At one point the guy at the reception went in and stand next to our table and start using louder voice to talk to other colleagues in Korean which we don't understand and no once seems replied to him.....

We ordered the rice box which you can shake first before eating it. It was ok although the experience is quite interesting.

Price is not too expensive but of course, prefer to have better meat even needs to pay a bit more.
