Its a restaurant on Robson street so I already expected it to be quite full of people. But they were playing music SO LOUD and the sound quality was terrible. It sounded like you were listening to the radio but didn't set the channel quite right so there's all this background noise. The music they were playing were PSY and... More

Long story short it took us almost 2 hours to get food and we had to talk to the manager twice. It took 20 minutes to seat us - the place was not full and other groups got in before us who arrived after us. We were hungry we decided to wait it out. After we ordered no one came... More

We decided to try something new to us, Korean food. We didn't pick the right restaurant for a first meal. Our waitresses English was very limited, which doesn't help when you need assistance to know what is normal to select from the menu. Then when the meal arrives one dish arrives, followed by the second 10 minutes later. And with... More

We loved all the food we tried at this restaurant - from the side dishes to steamed dumplings to mahn doo gook soup to spicy BBQ pork. The service was fine, and the K-Pop playing on the TV kept it lively.

The original place was small and cramped but had a happy and busy atmosphere. The new place feels like an aircraft hangar with little of the charm of the original. The food is good ( not great the way it was) and the staff are attentive but so busy. Nothing lasts, sad to say.

This place has several locations and previously I have only been to the one in Richmond BC. This was my first visit to the Robson St location. It had the same level of yumminess to the menu. I am no expert in Korean food but we had some short ribs that I thought were awesome, some very tasty dumplings, a... More

Just happened by this neighborhood restaurant for a late lunch of fantastic food served up with slightly-weird Korean MTV. Service was OK & I felt lucky with my random choice during a crosstown walk!

So I've gone to this place a few times from before they finished construction to this past weekend. The service was... strained 2 years ago and things haven't changed much since then. I sympathize with the staff. They appear overworked and overwhelmed. There were only 2 waiters for the entire packed restaurant during peak Sunday (labor shortage?). However, it gets... More

For my experience it doesn't compare to the others in the vicinity. We had a choice to go to either Sura korean BBQ and here and I thought let's try Jang mo jib. The staff was bordering on rude and the food came late. The waitress did not give us the complementary side dishes and only did so when we... More

Fuelled by k pop and a lively crowd this place is a great pad for groups of friends. Food is good but it's slightly on the stuffy side maybe coz a lot of cooking and sizzling is going on with a lot of pots passed around. Apart from that it's cool
