    If you love KKBQ, then you've come to the right place! Quality meat is really good and they have a large selection. Just be prepared to endure a wait to get in. Well worth it though. Enjoy.

    The restaurant is extremely dirty. Sat down after they cleaned the table and there was oil everywhere. Had to go wash my hands a couple times because everywhere I touched was oily. Eww 😠

    Good value, good quality Korean BBQ. Parking can be a pain, and also put your name in early if there's a wait!

    There's usually a bit of a wait, but it's delicious!

    Lots of my friends love this place for their meat selections (chicken, seafood, kalbi). Interior a bit too oily and sticky for me. Needs better ventilation. Parking might be an issue around meal time.

    Gotta have the Hawiian steak beef belly and bulgogi. Not as busy after 930.

  • Greta G.

    Omg!! Worth the 2hour wait. AYCE, try cheek and bristek! So good

    I can't tell if the service is helpful or hasty. Nevertheless, the constant "more meat or are you done?"comments kind of ruined the experience.

    They quoted a 1 hour 45 minute wait time. There isn't enough seating for everyone that waits, expect to be standing around if you go Fri/Sat nights.

    They used to be great but obviously they cut the quality - their Hawaiian steak is great! But the top sirloin was down the hill... ;( still cheap BBQ... It comes w banchan (bunch of small kimchi).

    Lots of hype surrounding this place. The ambiance was nice, service exceptionally good, wait time was long, and the food was meh. Might not come back.

    This was the first we had Korean BBQ but enjoyed every bit of the different type of meats! The place was clean and the service was good. Will surely be back for more.

    These guys change your table grill often as if they're gonna lose their job.

    AYCE! Great service! Great cuts of meat! (not a fan of marinated meat) Lots of sauces, dry rub, sesame... Willing to REFILL! And it's Fun!

    Don't come here if you are eating anything other than AYCE. You will wait a really long time for your food. I know that defeats purpose of AYCE, but not everyone wants AYCE.

    Lee Yi · March 6, 2012
  • Julian N.

    They open at 11:30 a.m. everyday. Come early (like 11:15 a.m.) to avoid the wait. Quality meats are reasonable prices. Yum. My favorites are the marinated kalbi and the joomooluk. So so good.

    Julian Nam · February 29, 2012
  • Dennis T.

    Wait here can be ridiculous, so get here early and get on the wait list. Order some drinks while you wait.

    Dennis Thai · December 23, 2011
  • Louie S.

    Went here on a Saturday night around 7pm and the wait was around 2 hours! It was worth it esp. for my first time. Plan accordingly!
