    A Korean chowhound from San Jose, CA tried it, liked it, and rated it . They liked the food, didn't like the service, and didn't like the ambiance.

If you like/love meat, you'll love this place!

Cheap valet parking (since it’s so crowded and small parking lot). Decor and ambiance is fairly ehh, but what do you expect from such a cheap all you can eat place?!?! It’s a loud place even with no real concept of a ceiling. It’s sort of in the style of patio seating with a ceiling over it. This is actually probably for the best because otherwise the place would just smell of meat even more than it does.

Servers don’t really speak english very well, but it’s fairly easy to get your point across by just pointing at whatever dish you need more and saying “more”.

Small dishes consist of little rice wrappers, salad, steamed egg dish, kimchee, and probably some more dishes that I forgot. There are two different dipping sauces, one of sesame oil and salt?, another of some kind of vinegar type thing. Both are delicious.

Now on to the real reason you came here, the meat. You tell them what cuts you want, we ended up getting a combination platter first. That consisted of thin rolled beef slices, thicker steak beef slices, strips of pork. We also asked them for some marinated chicken. I think it’s also possible to get some mushrooms and stuff because we saw them at another table, but we didn’t get them.

It’s done standard korean BBQ style with a grill in the middle and you cook your meat yourself. When the grill gets too burnt/dirty, you can ask the server to change the grill out for a clean one.

Also, if it’s someone’s birthday and you tell them, they’ll play this awesome happy birthday korean song that is just .. pretty neurotic.

This place is always fun to go to when you have a big group of friends. :) Just afterwards you’ll smell like meat.


You can only do this so often. But when you do, such delicious food for so cheap. This is why gluttony is a sin. :P

all you can eat, meat.

i know most ktowner’s and out of town’ers that have been to this bbq restaurant adore this place and for $14.99 for all you can eat bbq, it’s not bad.

however, with the cheap price, you aren’t going to get the best quality meat, and on busy nights, service is lacking as well. even with the little button you press to get a server’s attention, it still takes awhile to get an order through.

however, the rice cake wrap, and wide assortment of side dishes, my favorite which is the steamed egg, (kind of like an egg casserole), keeps me coming back.

if you’re hungry upon arrival, get the cha-dol, (thin slices of meat that cook fast), the seasoned beef (joo mul luk) is also good, but on the chewy side. the pork (korean bacon looking things) is kinda skimpy, they give you 3 slices at a time, so if you’re a fan, order more than one plate.

it’s a local favorite, and fun w/friends for meat & soju. i usually like to come here when i’m with a bunch of hungry boys, its a quick fix for korean bbq at a low price.

This is probably one of the best KBBQ place in K-Town mai...

This is probably one of the best KBBQ place in K-Town mainly because they give you very good service. The meat they serve is of average quality and they don’t speak much English. A great place to be with a large group of friends. They have very reasonable price. (Best thing is to bring a Korean friend with you)
