We always try the bbq beef here, and it is always really good. In general, it's still the best Korean bbq restaurant for food. But management here does not encourage the staff to be friendly.

Popular with local Koreans this is a busy place on Yonge north of Steeles. Restaurant has a mix of regular tables and BBQ fume hoods, reservations are recommended. The Kalbi is good, the small side dishes are ever changing. No surprises. Bit of a bum's rush to shoo out for the next group, no cinnamon drink to cleanse the palate... More

I was here for a quick dinner while visiting Toronto this week. I had a bowl of kim chi chigae. It came with rice, six small side dishes and a salad. I've lived in Korea and from my experience was very authentic. I'm looking forward to going back with friends for bbq. Total bill, including tax, was under $12!. Definitely... More

We love Korean food and have tried many places in many countries. This place was delicious, and customers were mostly Korean. Enjoyed the marinated beef BBQ, chapche, kimchee soup, bimbimbop. Staff was fine, at the end I didn't wait for bill, just went up and paid, made it quicker. Would return again. Bit on the pricey side.

Went with some family as my brother-in-law heard abut it and wanted to try. We had reservations and although we arrived a bit late were seated promptly. The waitress was very helpful with the menu. We ordered 2 beef dishes (unmarinated) and they bring you plenty of sides. We also had soup and some type of alcoholic drink (sorrt but... More

Sariwon Korean BBQ offers variety of Korean food, not only BBQ. I will give 4 stars for the food. Quality of the meats was quite good but nothing really stood out to me. But, I will minus 0.5 for poor service and minus another 0.5 because it is pretty expensive for what you get, compared with other Korean restaurants.

My friends and I have been to this restaurant many times and we can say with confident that the food tops any other Korean BBQs in the city! Yes the service can be better and the price is a little high but who cares the food is incredible! The meat is perfect , the soups are delish and the sides... More

This is a great little spot. The waitress was exceptionally helpful. It was very fun to try new things. The marinated meat is the best.

Service was ok, staff wasn't warm at all. Make sure you know how to order, staff doesn't like to help much. Prices are expensive as well. I will not be returning to this restaurant, very disappointed. If you value good food and good service, DO NOT GO HERE!!!

The weather is chilling up again after the warm Nov week with double digit temperature. Light hail was falling. Coming back from out-of-town--- what can be better than being warmed up either by BBQ or a steaming hot stone pot of stew? We went to Sariwon with Korean food. We finally decided against BBQ and opted for something lighter. It... More
