The restaurant is very noisy and their fan system only redistributes the smoke around, there is no proper evacuation. If you go there leave your coats inside of your car, otherwise you'll smell barbecue for days. Waiters kept on forgetting our order and would not change a single time the grill we were using (became all black with the burnt... More

How this place passes health inspection is beyond me. There is not proper circulation . You will breath in smoke worse then any second hand smoke you will ever see. Your cloths and hair will stink. This place is alive only becauase it takes the leftover customers that cant get a table at the other restaurants around it. Food is... More

Came here with friends from Richmond Hill. At the first sight it´s in my opinion a korean BBQ with a beautiful interior. We ordered a mountain of food (My friends fault) It all tasted well and fresh. I especially liked the lychee drink! Ordered at least 3 glasses of that stuff. Furthermore it was a fine ambiance, staff was okay... More

I went here with my wife.She was there 2-3 years before and suggested we go.The place was quite smokey from the BBQ`s.They could use a better exhaust system.The food was O.K. The service was fine,but they could be more friendlier and smile a bit more.The staff seemed cold.For the money of the all you can eat(25.99p.p.),I expected better.We will not... More

We had a wonderful business lunch. The Japanese selection and the BBQ selection was varied. The yaki-soba (fried noodle) could do with a bit less oil.

Fast and friendly service. The sushi rolls were not the greatest but the meat/fish to put on the table grill was fresh and delicious. We would like to return again.

If you like to socialize while bbq'ing right at your table, this is the place for you. A fun evening in that respect. A typical Korean BBQ where the burners are on each table and you cook your selection of meat and vegetables. Quantities of each are quite good (we were 3 adults dining out). Limited selection of sushi rolls... More

Went with family who've never tried Korean BBQ. They were a little confused at first (what to do, when do you know it's properly cooked, etc) but loved the concept of cooking your own food. Especially the kids - who were entertained for much longer than other restaurants. There was a variety of meats and they were all seasoned nicely.... More

Went with family. The selection was what you would get a typical korean bbq. This place has great atmosphere, loud and fun. The only bad thing is the place is really smokey on busy nights. Make sure you bring a bag to put your jackets inside otherwise you will come out smelling smokey. I would definitely go back again with... More

We were celebrating my Daughter's Graduation - Late Night Dinner at half price - it's not worth the price that we had paid for. No sushi except salads, soup, kimchi and tofu. We bbq'd the food such as Marinated Short Barbecue Ribs, Beef, Chicken, Pepper, Pineapple, Shrimp, Calamari and Fish that we had ordered from the servers or wait staffs.... More
