I came here with my mother in law and can't forget this place. It's easily my favorite kalbi I have had yet. Give it a try and you'll see why. Either of the 2 locations are great and close to each other. U wasn't able to come to visit last year but this as on my list of favorite restaurants... More

Despite the high price, i can recommend to enjoy Korean bbq here They offer many side dishes for free as usual which enables you to get a taste of other Korean dishes as well I would recommend to try the unflavored meat and the flavored afterwards If you are still not full, have some Bean soup or cold noodles (i...

Went to this place with couple of my colleagues. Beef was just amazing. We had the raw one & marinated one. Personally I liked the raw one. Also ordered ribs. It was delicious. The ambiance of the restaurant is very good. Seems very popular amongst the locals as well. All in all wonderful experience of Korean bbq.

Our hotel was close to here, so we were glad to sit in for a meal on a rainy night. Good service & typical Korean cute service. We had 3 of the beef rib specials, with all the sides. The server attended to our grill & cut up the beef professionaly. It was very tasty as we expected. The Case... More

Business dinner. You can choose beef or vegetarian type. You should try to eat with the leaf, garlic and the others on ur table. It was very delicious, and juicy..really.. Since i dont drink soju, i took soda. Just say what you need they can provide it.

I've been eating Korean food for over 30 years and this place was by far the best I've ever had. The galbi was tender, flavorful, and I didn't want it to end. The staff was friendly, attentive, but not overbearing. They give you so many unique side dishes, one more flavorful than the next. Atmosphere was very inviting. I think... More

We could smell the bbq a distance yet, hence we knew we were on the right track. A short walk away from the main road (landmark is Hotel Castle on the main road, take a left turn after), one could come by taxi (which we did) or bus.

I know compare to other BBQ restaurants, Bonsuwon Galbi is bit pricey. However, the quality of meat served at the restaurant is super tender. There are two types of meat served at the restaurant - saeng-galbi (unfrozen meat) and yangnyeom-galbi (marinated meat). Try unfrozen first and then marinated meat. It is so delicious. You won't regret your money.
