    25 side dishes. Galbi and chadol is my fav. Got the combo A (2ppl for 55$) overall great experience! Loved the service. They finish you off with warm hand towels and a lollipop. ;)

    You won’t find any other restaurant that comes even close to surpassing the 20-plus banchan side dishes this place offers that change from week to week. Try the Prime Kalbi for an entree. Read more

    Get the combo #4 for 4 ppl, $120. So worth it! Comes with japchae, bibimbap/doenjang jigae/kimchi jigae, soju shots, a variety of meats, and more types of banchan than I've ever seen at a kbbq place.

    Course A was a great choice as we weren't sure what to order. Bulgogi, kalbi, salad, the 27 sides (esp. scallion pancake), japchae and soondubu were delicious! Would highly recommend, service is great

    Very attentive with helping you cool you meat so don't be afraid if you're not a huge "cool your own food" person. I kinda like my pork crispy so I had to let them know the intentional grilling.

    Decor and service are more upscale and less hectic than your average K-town BBQ spot. Slightly pricier, but worth it. Set meal D has a great variety of meats and everything was delicious.

    This higher-end Korean barbecue is most notable for having 20-plus banchan just before the meat comes out. And the beef is near the top in terms of quality. Read more

    Great K BBQ. A bit more European style and not as authentic as some other places in K town. That said, clean, the food and service are great.

    You can't go wrong here. Service is great and so much food that a meal for 2 can feed 4.

    The service here is fantastic. Sarah is very friendly. Make sure to order the veggie basket, it comes with sesame leaves (look like giant shiso leaves).

    It's not AYCE yet their course menu gives you various foods with reasonable price. They don't take reservation, so expect waiting. Parking structure is behind the establishment. Good food!

    The kids got had never tasted Korean BBQ or had ever cooked their meat on a grill. We were surprised by all the side dishes brought to our table. The service is poor, but the food is really great.

    Don't be fooled when you call and make a reservation, it doesn't work. You still have to wait, so come prepared.
