    Loved the beef. Make sure you get seated far away from the door.

    I had the chicken hotpot and I highly recommend it 😊. The portion size was good as I was left satisfied, not too full.

    Located on one of worst streets in manhattan, it literally smells like crap. Disputed that, the food is good. Not the best but decent. Service is prompt & friendly. Their lunch boxes are a good value

    If you love Korean BBQ you really cannot go wrong here. Awesome selection of fresh proteins and a solid soju menu. A bit of a walk from the main street in K-town but worth it.

    SIDE DISHES: a little lacking compared to those in given in ktown, but this is the only korean bbq place i know of that serves pickled radish wraps. and if you ask me, that's all that matters.

    Food was average but service was pretty good & attentive. Probably not worth a repeat trip given other options around K-town.

    Bulgogi is fantastic. If its your first time at Korean BBQ, the oranges are to eat. Don't embarrass yourself by wiping your hands with them.

    If you can't eat with sticks, ask the helpful staff to give you a little lesson. If it didn't help, ask for a pair of children sticks.
