Our son told us we must eat Korean BBQ while in town, so he introduced us to Road to Seoul. We loved it. It's a very festive place, quite loud but fun. I think week nights might be a little less festive, if noise bothers you. We had no idea we would be cooking our own meat at the table... More

This is a good choice for a big group or a smaller group of very hungry people! Big portions of marinated meat with some salad and sides. You grill the meat on the bbq in the centre of your table - it's really good. The service is pretty brusque and the place is quite noisy and hectic, but if you... More

I went recently to Road to Seoul while we were visiting LA and we wanted to try a new AYCE Korean BBQ place from ones we had tried in the past. The menu options at Road to Seoul are amazing- the quality of the food was also excellent. The service is a little lacking, but not enough to make it... More

Because of language barrier we didn't know we could have had shrimp. But still, plenty of beef & chicken was presented. There is a BBQ grill at every table so you cook your own beef, chicken, fish, shrimp, lobster, Select from 4 different menu options. All you can eat. Unique experience to it once.

Outstanding & delicious dinner. The servers were fast, quality high, we had so many choices to eat. We tried like 8 different choices. Each of us purchased the three meat option and enjoyed each one. Price was extremely reasonable for the amount of food you get. We called ahead and got reservations and it's good we did the place was... More

They've removed a lot of the old photos and stickers that used to make this place great. Food is still good but it lacks the little things that used to make it special.

We sat down and the waiter was attentive to us. He gave us menus, korean side dishes, and drinks. There were large groups at each table and only one other family with kids next to us. First of all, the atmosphere was not what we expected. It was very loud, noisy, and they played obnoxious club music. We respect and... More

I went there twice with friends. All you can eat barbeque and very reasonable prices. The music is a little too loud, so you have to yell when you talk but overall I would go back for the food.

When I was planning my visit to LA, I knew I needed to try some Korean BBQ. Here in the states in general, Korean BBQ has yet to take off. In LA, however, it has exploded. I didn't know exactly what I wanted, i just know it needed to be all-you-can-eat so I could have the chance to try everything.... More
