    The spicy pork belly was my favourite! Bulgogi and beef tongue are great too.

    All you can eat option is great! Not for the inexperienced Korean BBQ diner! Parking around back closes promptly at 11PM. Get the Spicy Pork Belly, Bulgogi, skip the steamed egg, too light & runny!

    All you can eat $19.99 is such a great deal....we had 2 big bottles of beer and 2 bottles of soju btw 4 people, bill came out to less than $30/p. Bulgogi in spicy chili sauce is bomb!

    Watch out for the exposed metal grill under the table. It is burning hot and not safe!

    Road to seoul? More like road to being full!!!! If you don't leave here with meat sweats, you should just give up on life and wear a mumu and never leave your house.

    Great food and fantastic service!

    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.

    Food here sucks and the service is worse

  • Alyssa

    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.

    Alyssa · April 3, 2013

    Under new management AGAIN! The pajean and salad isn't as tasty as before but still an awesome AYCE Korean BBQ joint.

    Stephanie Chu · April 1, 2013

    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.

    Have you ever eaten and gotten drunk in an exercise class? Cause that's what this feels like. In a good way.

    Definitely do not eat here as there is a server strike (12.26.2012). Kogi-pocalypse 2012.

    I've never seen a Korean restaurant with this kind of service. They were so speedy!! In an hour, they replaced the grill 6 or 7 times!! The Kalbi and squid was great!! Definitely will be back!!

    Dean Kunihiro · November 5, 2012

    $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.

    Michele · October 27, 2012

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

    Amy · August 30, 2012
  • Angela W.

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

    Angela Wong · July 24, 2012
  • Kevin K.

    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.

    Kevin Kwak · July 23, 2012
  • Caroline
