Went for all you can eat dinner. Meat and cut weren’t as high quality as people said but maybe because the ayce meat is supposed to be a bit subpar. Mostly marinated. Anyway it’s not like we have many ayce options with a reasonable price anymore.

Our server was amazing but the management did not want to help solve any problems. Our bbq was not working and the server clearly asked the manager to help, but he chose not to. I wanted to switch a garden salad with an avocado salad..we were told substitutions were and I quote “ IMPOSSIBLE!”. Our server apologized for our poor experience and asked us to come back. Also. I don’t understand why they expect us to steam our mushrooms and broccoli when it takes up so much space in the grill ( and a long time to cook when your bbq is not working ) in the end they gave us 15% off our total bill for our troubles. That was fair.

Food was excellent cooking over the smokeless grill. I liked the fact the place was not smelly and smokey like other BBQ. Lots of high quality meat varieties to BBQ. SERVICE was excellent and very knowledgeable. Will definitely come back with the whole family. Excellent experience if you like cooking your own food over a BBQ. DECOR was very nice. Free parking in the parking garage but it's a bit of a walk around the outside of the building from the garage.

Very impressed with the service here. Theyre fast, efficient, friendly, informative. They oil the grill for you before you start. The food quality is top notch. These guys outshine the other competing japanese bbq joints. You would have to see it to believe it.

Our first visit and we will definitely return. Food was incredibly delicious! We ordered the set menu for 2 for our family of 4, including 2 boys, plus the garlic noodles and gyoza. We couldn’t believe the amount of food that came in the set. It was the perfect amount for us. I can’t imagine how it could be for 2. The quality of the meat was exceptional. Every piece so tender and perfectly seasoned. The garlic noodles were incredibly delicious and no doubt we will be craving it soon. This restaurant is a must visit! Incredible value for the quality of food served. Great attentive service too!

We had “happy hour for 2” on a Saturday, $60 for 2. The portion was perfect even for my teenager son! The meat were marinated in different sauces, overall flavorful though a few of them might be on the salty side for some. It therefore is supposed to go well with rice and side dishes.
Save room for dessert, maple syrup with ice cream, matcha cream cake were both delicious and the price was hard to resist! It priced more as a add-on.

It was a great experience, with easy parking, easy booking, and easy check-in. The staffs are so friendly! The food was excellent. Everything was good. My only disappointment was that I could not upgrade my white rice to butter rice. Also, Yaki Onigiri was sold out.

I’ve been visiting this restaurant frequently prior to the pandemic, unfortunately prices have gone up at least 20% this year and the amount of food has decreased as well. Very disappointing and no longer good value

Exceeded our expectations as we were expecting something similar to korean BBQ. We felt the meats were of a better cut, and seasoned very well. Also, we did not end up smelling like smoke at the end of dinner - which is a bonus! My daughter really enjoyed the smores :).

The food is always delicious, our servers have always been friendly - the only thing we miss is the AYCE experience. In reality, though, barring the ultra—expensive options, there doesn’t tend that be much difference price-wise between the two unless you’re one of those parties that somehow just Hoover’s their way through an unimaginable quantity of food! It says something that this was the first restaurant I chose post-pandemic.

Was a nice time with my friends. Some patrons are rather pushy and try to get ahead of you in line for some reason...? The manager was kind to tell them to stop pushing my friends and I out of the way.

The food is always great! I recommend the Kalbi Short Rib!

Their servers are not very attentive and are sometimes too busy talking to themselves to notice someone wanting their attention. Kind of sad as there are limited seatings due to COVID-19.

The protocols for dining are great. They can accommodate your group if you feel uncomfortable and also clean and sanitize tables well.

Everything was so good! Fresh salad, kimchi crunchy and tasty, soup delicious, real wasabi, fried rice so good you can stop eating, every meat piece was of great quality and tender. Service matched the food. We loved everything. Thanks so much. I would recommend the chef dinner for two to anyone. It’s worth it.
