Excellent korean BBQ. The variety is amazing and they start off by serving you atleast 25 bowls of short eats. The bulgogi is to die for ... Would go there again purely for the Bulgogi.

I have been going there since 91. Still a great place to eat. The kalbi is wonderful. A must try. You won't regret it. The prices are very reasonable. Service leaves a bit to be desired but the food makes up for it.

Two people for lunch ordering off the regular menu came to $80. Sure, you get the HUGE tray of mini bowls of stuff, but each is filled with up to 3oz max of vegetables. The protein is on the plate. Decent quantity, but just standard...More
