Barbecue tables were full, but I had the best bibimbap ever instead. And fresh (not frozen) dumplings, which is not so usual. Top-notch service. What else can you ask?

We had the Paejon ( pancake with seafood) and pork dumplings for starters. For the bbq we had marinated pork in cabernet and sliced chicken with vegetables. Must try the lemon Soju - it's a Korean liquor!

You need to tell them to give a break between the starters and main course otherwise it all comes really fast.

For someone who had never eaten Korean food before, there isn't a better place to start than New York's Korean district, teeming with bars, restaurants and cafes full of mostly young Koreans.

The BBQ style means that the centre of your table is equipped with a burner and some of the dishes are cooked right there at your table. We started with pancakes, which are potatoes based, lightly spiced and filled with seafood in one case, and vegetables for the other. They are large and filling though, so avoid the temptation to over eat on them!

The first part of our main course was marinated strips of beef, cooked over the burner and served with some mushrooms which were also grilled at the table. The meat was beautifully tender and well flavoured. Our second dish was beef in broth with noodles, also cooked in a pan at the table and was of equally great quality. The meal includes rice and salad for each diner, and an array of dips and pickles to shares.

Service was very efficient and friendly, but be warned that it is very popular, so if you come without booking, you will probably have to wait.

I had a fantastic experience with this restaurant. We got dolsot bibimbap and barbecue as well as the japchae appetizer. Everything was fantastic. If I had one complaint, I would love to see more pork options but it's excellent overall and I really want to go back.

I've eaten at loads ofKorean restaurants and our meal was one of the best I've ever had. The spicy pork and sea food were delicious. We also were given loads of extra side dishes and I had no idea how nice dried spicy squid would be! One quick note, if you're from the UK the portion sizes are about 3 time larger then back home : )
