Koji is a traditional Korean BBQ-style restaurant, where you grill raw ingredients right at your table. I've been coming here once in a while for several years, and, while it is generally enjoyable it has been going down somewhat lately. For example, there used to be a selection of prepared dishes, including Chinese, to complement the ones you have to... More

This is an all-you-can-eat Korean tabletop grill restaurant. You pick your own assortment of meats and vegetables from a long buffet, take them to your table, and grill your meal. I walked in at lunch time and there was no hostess so I walked around and the food looked and smelled good, so I thought I'd give it a try.... More

My friend celebrated her Birthday at Koji a few weeks ago. My husband and I usually dont go to restaurants like Koji but because of the Birthday we decided to give it a try. Boy were we dissapointed...The place itself is old and worn down, the bathrooms are in dire need of a remodel. The raw meat in the buffet... More

They cut back on the short ribs (Kalbi). They use the cheapest short rib kalbi, hardly any meat mostly bones. They used to have the short rib meat w/o the bone that was good but they removed it from the menu. Wish there was another korean buffet where you could pick your own food like Koji. They only have the... More

The waitress was really upsetting at the end of the meal---she did not even give us enough time to look at our bill---we tried to review it but before we knew it she took the money and ran---we then tried to leave a tip as you are supposed to do----when we got home we found out that the bill was...

The last time I was there, the waitress stood over our table and waited for us to pay her. Then, she came back and told us to hurry up because they were closing (in 30 minutes). She never came to my table to refresh the drinks or to take used plates away, until we asked her 5 times to do... More
