Had a great time here with my wife! The bbq is done on hot coals and the server cooks the food for you and cuts it up. We had the small Kobe beef combo and it was enough food for three maybe four people. We...More

Very original Korean. The Kimchi pork noodle soup was nice. Korean BBQ mix was ok, nothing great. Stayed at ground floor, upper floor you cook BBQ yourself. Staff helpful, but their English is quite tragic.
