One of the few good Japanese BBQs on the west side, unfortunately going down the drain. This place used to be great. Good service, fantastic menus. Now they have become the fast food of BBQs. They kick you out the second their "timer" hits zero. Extremely annoying g especially since the bill warrants 4 style service at the minimum. Not... More

Dinner was fast and the selections varied.The service was good put the wait for dinner was a tad long.But this is attributed mostly to the location and the great food. I... More

Amazing meat at this place, highly recommend the marinated short rib with garlic rice! Fantastic quality. Each round is small in quantity but amazing in quality and it averages between 10-15$ per plate of meat. Expect to spend at least 30-45$ per person for a satisfactory meal.

The food was good but very expensive. I left there still hungry. They definitely did not provide enough food in the food set.

The food was delicious, the service was nice, the ambience was good. However, the stuff there was quite overpriced. My mother and I went for a nice mommy and me dinner and we ordered the Kobe set for 2 people. The set included around 5 dishes, all with 2-3 small slices of meat. We didn't order any additional appetizers, desserts,... More

My boyfriend loves yukke, but it is so hard to find it. We came across this place looking for yukke. We are so glad we did, amazing waiters and great korean BBQ! My favorite dishes were "garlic salad + garlic rice + yukke + the lychees icecream "
