1st time experience of a Korean bbq restaurant and we was very happy with our choice of restaurant.

Great friendly service, with a little guidance round the menu and very helpful in explaining dishes.
Fantastic tasty food, the thinly sliced beef on the bbq was very good our favourite.

The restaurant offers a unique assortment of Korean appetizers and barbecue the meat on your table. The food is tasty and unique and offers a nice experience. I guess that is why they prices are high.
The meal could take some time since you start with the large number of small appetizer dishes then they bring the raw meat to be cooked in front of you. Some meat cuts could include unchewable fat ...they do not trim it carefully. Some meat comes wrapped around the bone ribs which is basically a waste of cooking...since no one will eat bones or the tough meat around the bones. This makes some parts of the meat non tender. It’s a nice experience but l wish they could do a better job trimming the fat/undesirable parts of the meat specially for the high prices they charge.

We visited while on vacation with our family. The restaurant is small. The hostess was very mice and we got a table really fast. The waitress helped us with the menu and we ordered a meal for two and three separate dishes. When the food started to come, we were surprised by the amount of side dish choices...so many. We had a salad, soup, about 15 mini sides, rice, and the beef to barbecue. And that didn’t include the other three dishes..lots of food for sure.
We had Korean barbecue before, but not with so many side dishes. We really enjoyed it. The prices were a little expensive, but order cautiously. We could have ordered just the meal for three for the five of us. Great meal.
