    For newbies to Korean food order Snow Flake Dueng Shim for a classic light beef dish that comes with complimentary picked sides + the adventurous will enjoy the Duen Jang Jee Gae - a curry miso soup

    One of the best Korean BBQ spots in the area. They use real coals, which I think enhances the flavor. Definitely will come back. Also, the spicy pork is actually... really spicy.

    This is a great find on a busy street of Korean BBQ spot. Sure, it's busy and there was a bit of a wait, but once we sat our food flowed and we really enjoyed it. The ban chan and meat were great!

    The wood charcoal used to power the grill at every table makes all the difference, imbuing meat with a smoky flavor. Emerge from New Wonjo perfumed by the smoke and beef fat and leave fully satisfied. Read more

    I'm not an expert on Korean Bbq but I must say it was excellent. It's our Second time here and I wouldn't try another spot to try to compare. Tried a little bit of everything and it was all great.

    I should have checked pictures before ordering - bibimbap comes with 10 side dishes!! And complimentary fluffy egg. And melon as dessert. Try also Michelin recommended dumplings

    For Korean BBQ newbies: do like the Koreans do! Ask for a bottle of Chamisul (soju) & be sure to get the marinated galbi (beef). Don't be afraid to pile on the lumpy, delicious hot sauce/paste.

    LS1 Galbi Bento Box is very filling. It comes with salad with ginger dressing, house soup, two pieces of California roll, a side of jap Chae and of course Galbi (short ribs). The order came out fast.

    The bulgogi is great here. Like many Korean restaurants, they bring out plenty of small dishes that serve as appetizers before the main meal. One dish is enough to split between two people here!

    Competitive street here in K-Town; a worthy competitor. 6 plates of banchan + salad. Tasty sushi. Gobdol bibimbap on point. Nice sake & soju list.

    If u have more than 2 people, it's great to just get a full course meal for everyone... it was enough to feed four of us. Expect to partially cook your own food on the grill tho. It gets busy there.

    The wait time for BBQ runs upto 20-25 mins, so make ur reservations. The service is not the best but the spicy pork BBQ is to die for! And don't forget to eat it the Korean way... !

    A massive helping of Kamjatang Stew is sure to soothe your post-drinking pains. The combination of the spice and flame will perk you back up in no time. Read more

    Food is really good. Very clean. Learn to play Pok-tang (Poke Ta) Ask the staff to show you. Great for groups and open until 4am!

    No reservations for parties of less than 4 ppl. It's really busy on weekends so prepare for a wait. The marinated meat dinner special for 3 ppl is fine for 2 hungry ppl. I know first-hand. Delicious.

    There is something on this menu called Meat Mania. It is many meats. It is amazing. You're here with a big group so get it. And if you are real maniacs, get two.

    Ju Mu Luk is the yummiest marinated short ribs KBBQ I've ever had! Best to sit upstairs during evening time since they don't always open the coal grill during the day. Open 24 hours.

    Good basic Korean, flavours could have been more punchy but great menu range. Had the beef bibimbab, short rib soup and seafood pancake. All were tasty.

    The second floor with the charcoal-powered grills is a must. Be prepared to wait and come hungry. Those meat plates are better eaten there than an at home the next day.

    Great lunch specials including naeng myun (both broth based and spicy) and seaweed soup with tons of mussels. Super Korean!

    this place supposedly is a top favorite but for me it was just ok, had the kimchi bibim bop as an entree and I didn't really like it, the grill part was awesome though especially the pork belly

    My favorite Korean BBQ spot in manhattan. Galbi and spicy pork belly are best. Lunch is ok, but they really shine at dinner. Service is usually good.

    Delicious! We got the meat mania platter, the fried dumplings, and the kimchi pancake. Everything food was fantastic! The dumpling sauce was the best.

    Great for taking visitors in town and for groups of 6 or less. They are experts at using tongs (transporting hot coals), which is quite entertaining!

    My fav resto in ktown. Stews that are like happiness in a bowl and quality bbq. There's a reason there's always a wait at this spot. So good!

    Cold buckwheat noodles weren't just cold, they're actually on ice. Definitely unexpected. Bibimbap and veggie dumplings were well above average though. And the free k-BBQ appetizers were great!

    I really like the banchan they bring out before the meal here. Fermented black beans, steamed kabocha squash, and sautéed dandelion greens. Yum!

    If you don't get bbq the line is usually shorter for the downstairs area. Get a few dishes including the budae jigae to split with friends!

    Check out the morning specials from 6 am to 11 am. For $7.95 you can get solid Korean fare. I had the clam and spinach soup with bean fare.

    Best KBBQ because they use wood chips vs a gas grill like other places. Wear layers, it gets warm! Expect a wait no matter what.

    Really excellent authentic Korean food. The bibimbap was delish and they give out a whole assortment of yummy side dishes.

    Come as early as 5:30 for dinner to avoid the long queue. They have the best Korean bbq bulgogi I've ever had.

    In my opinion, the best BBQ in Korea Town. Get the Meat Mania combo - it serves more than 3 and the steak is super tender

    Amazing Korean BBQ. If you're there on a Friday, go upstairs to the top floor for live jazz followed by karaoke.
