Be careful about this restaurant. If you have a reservation, half your party has to be there 15 minutes after the reserved time or you lose your table. Also, they kick you out after 2 hours and a half because they have another service. Plus, the manager is very rude. We had a problem and we tried talking to her,... More

Service is slow. Staff doesn't seem to understand french. At least, the food is good and you don't have to wait ''long'' to receive your order. (obviously because they don't have to cook it and you do it at your table)

We had to wait 20 min to get in but totally worth it. The food was very good quality, the service was good even was crowded. Not overpriced for the food quality and the quantity. And you can have the experience of the Korean meal cooked in the table by yourselves.

Was here with my family for dinner on a Sunday night. We arrived around 5:30 and were lucky to get a table right away, as the place quickly filled up. The service was fantastic and very quick to bring the orders we placed. They have a large selection for all you can eat Korean BBQ, sushi, etc... We love Korean... More

The style is interesting in that you write down the # of the item and quantity you want. You can order anything (except certain items restricted to weekends e.g., some seafood and specialty rolls). And order as often as you want. Caveat - you'll be fined $1 for anything you don't eat. With so much on the menu, ended up... More

Food was delicious, you get to cook it yourself so that adds more fun to the experience. Service was friendly, and pretty quick. Had to wait about 20 minutes outside beforehand, but well worth the wait.

First time i went to a "korean bbq" overall the food was good, really like the concept of cooking the food with friend.Service itself was average and it was also a bummer that they do not take reservation so we had to wait for 20 min in front of the restaurant. I liked it enough to go back, the pricing... More

This was a new experience for me. It was all you can eat dinner! You order by filling out a list of what you want and how much. Then they bring it to the table and you cook it on the grill in the middle of the table. All of the food was excellent and the service was very good!

Of all places i have tried Korean BBQ, this is the place and its All you can eat! Food is tasty and well marinated! This place is perfect for you if you seek some good KBBQ. (The pork is awesome) make sure you wrap your meats in lettuce leaves and load it up with some sriracha!

Thank Danny G

Staying in Centre-Ville (Downtown)

Neighbourhood Profile
Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by nightfall transforms from a business district into a youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and restaurants heavily peopled by students and young professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.
