    Speak slowly and clearly when ordering your meat. Otherwise, you may end up with a plate of intestines that you didn't order and are now forced to hide in the salad bowl.

    Make sure you bring your body spray or cologne with you. Because you're gonna be feasting like no other for quite some time. The bulgogi and the beef are... Ugh, so bomb.

    If they "accidentally" bring out meat you didn't order, decline it unless you were gonna get it anyway. It's their way of getting you to fill up before you can order the more costly (for them) items.

    $17.99 all you can eat with 14 different types of meat. The pancake is delicious and you get to eat with the music blasting and the sports games playing.

    Service was good. Food was ok. Whole squid, steamed egg, and pancake were yum. Way too smoky. Take a shower when you're done.

    Don't wear nice clothes, it'll be stained with the smell of KBBQ. Also, try their pancake. It's delicious :)

    HORRIBLE service! We weren't finished with our food and waitress named Tina brings us our bill and basically asks us to leave because it's 'busy.' I also found the waitresses discriminating too.
