    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.

    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.

    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.

    They were really busy when I went. Didn't handle large parties well -- But the food was bomb, so if you're in a small group... or if you're a large group and don't mind waiting. MUST GO.

    Yummy Korean with bumpin' tunes. They're kinda obvious when they want you to leave though-they're a lot more attentive and during the meal they were elusive
