All you can eat Korean BBQ with not so bad flavors on some things. The main problem was the service, it was virtually impossible to get them at sight, and when they do, the attitude was terrible. Maybe that]s their strategy, to disappear so you...More

The food was amazing. They had the best side dishes I've ever tried, especially the cucumber. The meat was tender and fresh. They portioned the meat perfectly so we could try a variety. We had watermelon sujo to top it all off; very smooth with...More
