As usual, you cook your own meat. Pick one of the "All you can eat" lunches or dinners. Try the different meats offered. Our favorite is the bulgogi (marinated thin sliced beef). It has wonderful flavor, extremely tender and add to that the great kimchee options (some very spicy and some just right!). The house sauce is perfect for dipping and be sure to add the green salad (lettuce with some flavorful oil). Just mix the meat dipped in sauce with the rice and lettuce and PERFECT. This is our special place to bring friends.

If you like walking out of a restaurant smelling like meat and being fuller than you could ever imagine this is the place for you!

The dinners are fantastic and since you grill your own meat you have no trouble preparing things how you like!

I had the squid, pork belly, Kalbi beef, short ribs, tri tip, strip steak, chicken thighs, and the pork cutlet.

All the kimchi sides are delicious especially the Ming bean sprouts!!

Small place with good service. Looks like a lot of good barbecue going on ( evident by the ceiling). The food was really good and seems fun to go in a group. The side dishes were excellent. Lots of locals recommend it here.

Brother said he wanted to try and I was impressed. There are 13 tables each with individual grill. Tried the Soju and the meat was plentiful. Definitely left full that evening. Love the concept of grilling at the table.

So... If you are in the mood for Korean BBQ, and want to be all day smelling fantastic, having a wonderful meal, and great service, this is the place to go.

They have 2 AYCE options, and the price is different is it's lunch or dinner or during weekend. Still, at around $18 per person on the "expensive" side, this place deserves a visit with friends.

Service is extremely courteous. The owner is almost there, except when he has an event with his Photo Booth business, and then his staff takes control of the place and deliver the highest quality of service.

Food... Fan, fantastic! The AYCE includes a broth, white rice, and 7 different dishes, including a wonderful Kimchi, fish, soy sprouts, radish, broccoli salad, and more. As for the BBQ portion of it, you can choose between many options, including chicken, spicy pork, spicy squid, marinated beef (Bulgogi), marinated ribs (galbi), brisket, pork belly, and more. They even will give you free ice cream at the end.

Their sauce is really awesome, and they also have the oil with sea salt, which gives the food a nice touch.

Great place for a date, family gathering, or business meeting.
