This place is a great place to dine! It's one of my favourite places to eat in Oxnard. The meat selection is great and fresh! The sides given are delicious and the service is really good,but be prepared to wait for a table on the weekend! It's always busy (this is always a good sign). I fully recommend this Korean BBQ restaurant :)

Went here after shopping from Camarillo Premium Outlet. Its about 15 mins north from the outlet.

Good cut of meats, reasonably priced at $ 21.99 for dinner.

Restaurant has a nice ambience and you can walk to nearby shopping stores ( REI, Target, H&M etc )

This is a mid-priced "Korean" style bar-b-q restaurant where they bring out the meats and you cook them yourself on a curved hot plate. Not bad actually, although the smoke ventilation system was poor, and the smoke from the cooking hung over the room. Service was good. However, having eaten in many such places in Korea, where numerous types of kimchee are continually provided, it's hard to understand why they only served one small bowl of cabbage kimchee with the entire meal. This fact alone makes this an average, unauthentic place.

Damn you Gen! Can't walk by and smell that delicious Korean BBQ cooking without immediately diverting into the restaurant. Glad to see the quality is back up since you went back to doing the marinating in-house. That's what was missing for awhile. Bring me a plate of #5 and then bring me another!

For $20 - all you can eat. 8 of us went there for my daughter's birthday. You order the type of meats, shrimp and some vegs and you cook it yourself. We enjoyed the marinated meats better than the dipping sauces. I was expecting really bad slices of meat but actually they were very good. You can get the Chap Che and rice by asking the waiter. Our waiter Steven was very good. Checked on us and got us our orders very quickly. Going here for $20 vs the 'traditional" restaurant, this place wins hands down. One thing, if you don't get there early, expect a wait. We got there at 4pm Sat and we had to wait about 20 mins already. When we left, the wait was an hour. Try it, you will like it. I would come here again. Enjoy.
