Went here for lunch today, was not disappointed. I've frequented their Cooper Young location often and this one is just as great. I'd highly recommend it
Decent Korean BBQ joint on the Highland strip, relatively new. We went for a date night dinner on a Friday night. The first thing that struck us when we walked in, it was empty in their front room and no greeter at the door. But as you walk around to their larger room further back, we found a hip looking area with tables lining the walls, some bench type seating and some regular chairs, as well as a bar. The interior was simple, not much on the walls other than soju or sake ads.
For food and drink, we opted to stick with waters, but did notice they had a decent beer and drink list, and they also advertise $13 craft pitchers. We got the bibimbap with beef, and the spicy pork bulgogi. The bibimbap was underwhelming, quite bland, and extremely little meat. The bulgogi had a decent portion size and great flavor so we actually mixed it into the bibimbap and that made it pretty darn good.
We never got refills or topped off on our drinks.
Overall, a mediocre experience, and definitely overpriced for what you get. It's not bad, but I probably won't return.
Was in in the area for business and was craving some Korean food. Decide to his this spot up which lies on Highland strip not too far from the college. The place itself is a bit hipster in design and atmosphere. Tables were all lined up against one wall in what looks like it was an old garage that was repurposed. (Has a garage door) I suppose it could be cool if you throw an event that would flow the crowd in and out.
Ok about the food.... not your standard BBQ joint. While there are options I found them a little limited. If you do choose to cook your own you get a propane fired camp grill brought to your table with a hot plate that you would cook on.
We chose the Mandu appetizer. I was good but I have yet to find some that match or are as good as the street vendors when I lived in Korea.
We also got the japchae as an appetizer. This was pretty good and I would recommend it. Seasoning was good but just a tad on the oily side.
For the main courses I chose soondubu with beef. I liked it. The portion size was good and the spice and flavor was what I expected it to be.
I was a bit disappointed in the vegetable offerings. Small plate of kimchi cabbage and a small one of zucchini. In all of the other places I've been to and I've been to a few there are far more offerings and variety brought to the table.. no fish cake, no radish both sweet and pickled..
I found the wait staff underwhelming and had to wait quite a while to get your glass refilled.
Still I'd hit this place up again but would not put it in my top Korean BBQ places.
Came here for a friend's birthday diner. The place is really nice, clean and very well decorated. Staff made us feel very welcome as soon we open the door. No complaint there. We order like 6 different type meat and some noodle and pancake. None of the dish we ordered disappointed us. Everything is on point. It didn't take very long either. One small disappoint thing I have is that I wish the have built in grill at the table like the other location. That would be great. And our ticket was about 170$ for 7 people... it's not bad for 7 people at all.
Will return for sure :)
