Here is a review from an user.
An unusual but fun dining experience that I highly recommend! If you do the buffet option, which is what we chose, the server brings you rounds of meats and veggies, which you then fry to your liking at your table. The meats were very tasty and fresh, and I enjoyed all the sides that came with it (rice, salad, and a variety of pickled veggies)! I suggest starting out with some of the thinly-sliced meats so you have an idea of how long to cook the food. Our waitress was matter of fact, kind, and helpful in answering all our questions. My only complaint is that the garlic shrimp was very difficult and messy to eat. It came with its shell (and head, I believe), and regardless of if you peel then cook, or cook then peel, it’s a very messy process. I will probably not get the shrimp again, but the other meats we had were great!
First time doing Korean BBQ in my life and I will definitely be back! We got sat right away and got a hug salad bowl. Waitress did an excellent job of explaining the menu and the deals that are offered (free appetizer with the purchase of a meat combo, or two individual meat orders). If you and your significant other like the same meat, I'd recommend to only get one order of meat. Me and my wife each got our own order and we had SO MANY leftovers. I got the short ribs and she got the marinated beef. It's a great concept to cook your own food, as it feels more fulfilling, rewarding, and cooked exactly to your liking. They also give you so many side dishes to dip your cooked meat into. White rice is included in the meat order. We also got a chicken fried rice from the kitchen which had plenty of veggies in it too! We will definitely be coming back to this location! Very nice staff too. This place can be very affordable if you split a singular meat order and take advantage of the salad, white rice, and other sides.
Great food. Ordered a Beef Bulgogi bowl. Marination and flavors are great, strong, and complementary. Nice portion size, as well. Kimchi is good. Maybe my inner Coloradan talking but 4/5 spice level is kinda 1/5…
I visited for the first time today, but it definitely won't be the last! My boyfriend and I loved this restaurant! The service and food was great! And everything came out so quickly!
Tip: Visit the restaurant in person! I ordered take-out for the family a few months ago and two of the three entrees were a little bit disappointing BUT we ordered noodle dishes, which commonly lose their appeal after sitting around for the drive home. So when it felt safe we dined in and were SO impressed! We are vegetarian and we ordered two veg bibimbops and the tofu stew. Make sure you ask for vegetarian broth because just because meat isn't mentioned, that does not necessarily mean the item is veg. Speaking of ordering, our server was great, and we also heard him being VERY PATIENT with other customers who had questions about Korean food and the ingredients in the dishes. Highly recommended.
The food was very good. The place was busy so we waited a while but the woman Was very apologetic and was clearly working very hard. They gave me everything I asked for and had great options. The prices were also very reasonable for this area and the lunch specials were very economical. A legit Korean run Korean restaurant. I look forward to going again.
TL;DR: great place to share an sanding meal with friends! The Food and the experience are well worth it. FULL REVIEW: We went for to eat dinner with a group of 5, and it could have not been better! We enjoy unlimited side dishes, that were delightful! As main meal we order a beef feast(large), it includes different cuts of meat, and they were all the best quality I’ve had in some time! (See pictures) this was sufficient to get the whole group really full, and we even got some leftovers to go. As part of the scoring, you have your own waiter/waitress at your table, they cook the meat in front of you, and you can request how would you like it cook, or you can go with their recommendation (they were really on point!). Through the course of the meal, they bright side dishes as we were finishing them. As part of the big meat feast, we also had an egg soufflé and a soy soup, both delicious! I recommend to go with your friends and get an amazing meal! P.S.: try to call ahead and reserve a table! They are usually packed!
What a fantastic eating experience. My first time eating here, the service was great, lots of smiles and yummy food. We grilled our own dinners right in front of us. FANTASTIC...
It's a pretty popular korean restaurant. Don't forget to make a reservation before coming for dinner if you don't want to wait for hours. Had a great dinner experience. The BBQ was great, but the side dishes were not that special. Servers were friendly though.
One of the places I miss most about not living in Portland any more and the place I am constantly coming back to when I come in to town. Everything is so delicious. Love the new sausage menu items.
