    The food was just ok It lacked flavor compared to other Korean bbq places The kimchi was bland and needed the kick that other kimchi’s have The place is a great location and the ventilation system is very cool. I hope they step up the flavors a bit.

    Food was great. They push the app extremely hard and don’t give paying options. Really takes away from the experience. You can get equally good korean bbq in chinatown without the unnecessary paying constraints and at a better price.

    The owners are a mother and son. Both came to our table separately and asked how everything was going and if we needed anything. They spent a lot of time with us and the gesture felt warm and sincere. The mother also discovered that we were celebrating my husband’s birthday, and brought back a lovely, personalized birthday card.

    The experience felt a bit rushed. They only give you 90 mins to dine, and to be able to do that they have a very fast service. Despite our waitress was very nice, appetizers came in 10 mins, and before we have a chance to finish that we received the meats. The meat is cooked by the staff, unlike other Korean bbq places, and I'd rather cook it the way I want to, and when I want to. They start cooking the next meat the moment you are done with the first one, and you have to finish it quickly to avoid it getting cold and tough, as they turn off the heat and leave after cooking. So we were done with food in 55 minutes... It's also not the best eating nonstop in such a short amount of time and we felt a bit sick afterwards. Next time I would probably go to Korea Garden.

    The food and service were very good, but it took 2 hours for our family to eat dinner. Seems too long even for the style of restaurant. They were also very pushy and intrusive with the use of their payment app (Roovy), to the point you can't get seated without downloading it.

    Wow!!!! First off staff is wonderful, every single person was great! Our table chef was amazing and super sweet would love to come back just for her. It was me, my boyfriend and my 8 year old during memorial day weekend/celebrating my birthday and we came to Houston from Dallas and they made us feel so welcome and always made sure we were being tended to. They were all great and we cant wait to come back again!

    I liked the food and the atmosphere. I liked that they gave me and my friends an area to ourselves since we did have like 12 people. It was really sweet to that they had the staff sign a card since it was my boyfriend and I's birthday. The only downside is the app that you have to use to pay. They do need to find other payment options for bigger groups. Overall, we enjoyed it and will be returning in the future.

    The experience was amazing and so was the food!! The bartenders went above and beyond to make you feel welcomed. The owner personally went to each table to check on guest. She visited with each table to ensure they felt welcomed and not just a customer that needed to eat and move on. I would highly recommend this place!!!

    This was a great experience to have. I will definitely be back. Staff was very attentive and friendly. They also gave a lot of tips on the sauces and the menu. The food was delicious and filling. We did one of the combos and it was enough for both of us. I ordered the Doenjang jjigae on my servers suggestion and it was so tasty and flavorful. Overall a great experience and great food. Also helpful to download the Roovy app beforehand. :)

    I really enjoyed the meal it was an excellent experience and a wonderful meal. Our server guided us expertly through the menu and guided us to some amazing dishes. Speaking with one of the hostesses she told us the restaurants name was named after a feeling the owner had for his city. You could see that pride in the staff and food! I look forward to my next visit and cannot wait to tell my friends and family about this wonderful place.

    Venue is very nice. A bit overpriced but food is good, in particular I enjoyed the brisket. But the payment system/app is a bit annoying. You have no option but to download an app for payment, register your credit card etc.. If you have to do it there at the table, maybe in front of your date, it is a bit inelegant and ruins the classy ambience

    We celebrated two birthdays at Mapojeong last night and it was a great experience! Our server, Leiar (probably spelling this wrong) was superb and took her time to answer our questions and explain everything to us. The food was excellent and everyone had a great time. At the end of the night we were presented with a birthday card that the whole staff had signed and I thought this was so sweet and thoughtful.

    Great place to eat! I have had to travel 20 minutes plus to get quality Korean cuisine in the past. When this spot opened in the Heights, I was so excited to try it out. The experience did not disappoint. Food was fantastic and our waiter was knowledgeable about the menu and Korean food in general. A little pricey, but perfect for a special occasion.

    Delicious and fun. Service was great. We went with out kids, ages 8 & 10, and they were attended to like they were the most important people in the room. After dinner our daughter said it was really neat that the owner served them and showed them how to grill their meat. It was the first time dining out with our kids that we were ready to leave before they were! Food was great but the service made it an experience to cherish. High bar set and we look forward to returning soon.
