I've still yet to find a place with better beef-on-the-rib - It's stunning! Portions are large and when you take into account that all the side-dishes are replenished on request you need to come with a considerable appetite. I’ve noted some comments about poor service - I’d argue the service is efficient rather than friendly but I’d recommend a Korean-speaker... More

We asked for a good Kalbi (Korean beef-rib BBQ restaurant) at an information stand, and the lady advised us to go here, arranged a cab and off we went. The place was filled with locals but we managed to get a table and ordered the Kalbi. It was the best beef BBQ we had during the trip. Also the side... More

I ate here twice while visiting Suwon. On the first night there was two of us, who had a very enjoyable meal. While the cost is expensive by comparison to other Suwon Kalbi , the quality is very good. Both the marinated and non-marinated meat is excellent as is the strip loin. We brought our manager and another person back... More

This place is kind of expensive but it was worth it. I would have rated it 5 but it was a little steep. Not something that you can eat everyday because of the price. Expect to spend well over 100 dollars for a dinner for 2. The quality was really good though.

Visited this place couple of days back with my colleagues. This place is even better than Bonsuwon Galbi and expensive too. Avg. cost per person easily is @45-50 US$. But it's worth every single penny. After the BBQ we had Korean rice with some sort of soup. It was yummy too.

I've visited this place several times. Expensive but good place. Their marinated/grilled beef is so good. Even side dishes are delicious. If you don't have enough money but want to try this, you can visit at lunch time. It is around $20.00 per person.

I've been here a few times with family. The side dishes are great and the beef is definitely the best I've had in Suwon. Save your money and get the American beef. It's a LOT cheaper than the hanwoo but honestly we can't tell the difference between the two. It's a great place for families as there are huge tables... More

I' really enjoyed the food at this restaurant. I must say, as an American, I wasn't sure what i was eating, but i enjoyed all of the dishes. There was sweet and savory, hot and sour. If you are up for culinary experience, give this a go.

One of the most famous place in Suwon for "Suwon Galbi" and they are there for long time. They serve marinated and grilled beef in Suwon style and most of you would love this menu. As time goes by, they are cutting beef smaller and smaller and surprisingly high price could make you stunned, but good for experience about "Galbi"
