Big fan of the Korean BBQ here. They give you a million side dishes with your selection of meat and lots of beer and sochu for a reasonable price.

Wonderful service, delicious food - a fantastic experience. The food is cooked yourself in a sunken bbq grill in the table... Lots of fun and the kids loved it but it would also suit a romantic night out. A must go restaurant!

Great food and service and for $24.99 all you can eat, you can't go wrong. Meats were nicely seasoned, restaurant is clean, staff is friendly and welcoming. Well worth it!

I always see this offer at Groupon. So I purchased one ($50) for $25 with $10 credit (from Groupon) so I ended up paying $15 for this $50 value which is a great deal. So I called and made a reservation. We did came on a Friday evening Dinner. Since we have the $50 groupon, the server offered the all... More

I didn't try the BBQ so I'm rating purely on the Korean food that we ate here. This place is owned and run by Japanese people. I'm Korean so I was a bit surprised to go to a Korean restaurant and find that they don't speak Korean. So at first, I was a bit skeptical. The design inside was very... More

Even with a light crowd, the smoke from cooking meats was almost obnoxious. Coupled with a barman that wasn't interested enough to adjust the "signature" cocktails to a couple of customers specific requests for less sweet, this was not a pleasant experience. The prime rib was pushed as the specialty of the house but in reality it was tough meat... More

We took advantage of a groupon hoping for a good experience. Although the wait staff was friendly, it took a long time between refills on the meat to cook. Add to that the burner was very weak and there was only one tiny area on it hot enough to actually cook the meat. The veggie plate accompanying the meats was... More

We came here because we had the deal from Groupon. Our waiter told us we could have anything from the menu, but we went for the all you can eat BBQ. The choices were 3 beef, 1 pork, 1 chicken, a veggie plate and a whole leaf lettuce plate (for wrapping the cooked meat). We went mostly for the beef.... More

My husband and I have been to this restaurant at least four times. We love going back to Tangier because of their great & tasty food.

Los Angeles offers plenty of good Korean barbeque restaurants, but most of them have bland settings and indifferent service. Tangier is a fun alternative. Don't miss it. It's located in the funky Hillhurst section of Los Feliz, home to screenwriters, artists and other creative sorts of people. The food is excellent, especially if you happen to like grilled meat. But... More
