Foursquare Tips

  • Dine on Korean barbecue cooked using infrared rays at this new restaurant opening in Koreatown today. A soft opening special of five courses for $85 will be in effect through March 25
  • The tables at the two-story Korean BBQ spot from Seoul-based entertainment mogul J.Y. Park are equipped with built-in crystal grills that cook your Wagyu using infrared rays.
  • Go for the rib eye...
  • Galbi was amazing. the service was excellent as well and the interior gave an upper class feel.
  • Order the bulgogi soup, a standout dish similar to a sublime Asian risotto:
  • Your pork belly sided with locally-sourced shrimp is cooked on in-table grills made from 99.9% natural crystal, so even the OWS protesters like eating here...
  • Bernard, our waiter, gave really good suggestions, explanations, and great service. Order rib eye and kimchi mari noodle as well as purity black tea. Overall really good restaurant for a night out.
  • Great fun with a group, exceptional service.
  • Their restaurant week lunch is a fantastic deal. Get the wagyu burger or opt for the wagyu rib eye (only $5 supplement).
  • Fancier Korean BBQ with quality meat selection. If you don't know how to cook, make sure your server sticks around to help. You don't want to over cook your Wagyu.
  • Don't let the waiter leave the grill. Our food was way overcooked. We had to send the pork belly back. It was like eating a shoe.
  • Best Korean bbq I've been to considering the incredible quality of the meat, specifically the rib eye
  • Get the galbi and dip it in the brownish sweet sauce. Also, the pork belly buns. Ugh and that free seaweed salad side. My mouth is watering.
  • Restaurant week lunch special is amazing, everything was super fresh.
  • Meat was good but side dishes were bad.
  • What a gem. Had an amazing filet mignon BBQ with the tofu appetizer. All delicious. And the excellent service is a big plus!
  • Amazing service! Got a Travel Zoo deal and went with my girlfriend. Great ambiance, waiter explained each dish and gave great recommendations. Food was on point.
  • I never leave reviews but this place deserves it. The food is outstanding and the service is bar none. Can't go wrong here. Order the waygu beef/pork belly. Ask for Bernard.
  • The bread pudding will give you a boner.
  • Great, relaxing atmosphere on the second floor. Cucumber cocktail from heaven. Check it out!
