This was my first time at a Korean BBQ. Our friend took us so we didn't really have to figure out what to order. Their kimchi is great! We had like 5 different meats. I enjoyed everything, but then again I'm pretty adventurous when it comes to food. We will come back when we have big appetites!

We visited Manna Korean BBQ and found it to be a wonderful experience. It's an all-you-can-eat so come hungry. The staff is great and will help you with your selections. You, the customer, BBQ's right at your table which is a fun experience. You choose off of their three menus what you want, each menu adds to the menu before, kind of depends on what you want to eat. There are at least 10 different selection on the first menu and each of the next menus adds 5-6 selections. Just ask your server when you want more food to try. Overall a great experience.

First time trying out this all you can eat Korean BBQ. Been to a number of Korean restaurants in N. America, usually all you can eat places serve medium to low quality meat. This one surprisingly serves very decent quality meat and veggie. Servings were generous and service was swift and friendly. Variety of food choices are more than adequate. At a cost of $38.00 per person, there was more than all 4 of us would eat and didn't take a chunk out of one's wallet. However, do prepare to wait because there is always a line up for supper.

this was our 1st visit and we were impressed. There were 5 of us arrived at 7 pm, there was a small crowd there. We were seated right away and the server came and took our drink orders. They brought out a large salad which was very good. We didn't eat too much since we were saving ourselves for the meats but finished it anyway.. We started with the pork belly, then the Angus beef strips, marinated beef and marinated chicken. All were delicious. The chicken was thigh meat and very tender. The angus strips were also tender and very tasty. They provide each with a double tray bowl with a brown sauce & salt. The brown sauce tasted like teriyaki with vinegar, I dipped everything in it. The steamed egg was very good as the veggie dish. The AUCE start at $22 which is enough for us. they have a regular menu but the AUCE is the best value.

Manna BBQ has many location and this is in San Marcos. It is not only a KBBQ, it is a buffet. Meat quality is good unless you want very top quality, which you can order the Kobe beef, but I found even the normal, standard beef is good enough. There are different level of buffet that you can choose from. The levels determine what type of meat you can get. This is a buffet that is all you can eat but the food is not taken from a counter freely. You request and place order as many time as you want to and eat all you can. Good way to control waste of food. If you can eat a lot, this is the place to be. Good of large group gathering too. They have a room for special occasion that you can book.
