ARI Korean Steakhouse
Dinner: Nightly: 5:00pm - 11:00pm
Chicken took long to cook for 5 people. Spent a lot of time waiting to eat.
Great experience for first time Korean Barbecue diners. Very pricey compared to other local Korean Barbecue restaurants in Duluth. They may not be as fancy but food quality is as good or better than Ari. Lovely space and desserts are amazing.
Good food, great service, really interesting bakery.
Great service great food! We will be returning soon!!
Great food, interesting variety, really friendly staff!! We’ll definitely go back.
Best Korean bbq in town. Restaurant is clean and high end. Staff is very nice and polite. Overall enjoyable experience!
it was my first time trying korean bbq and i was definitely not disappointed. my friend and i had an excellent time trying the variety of food available, and the all you can eat is truly a steal considering what you get for it. if you decide to go, make sure you ask for noah, because he made everything simple and exciting for us first-timers.
This was a fun experience, first time at a Korean bbq restaurant. Service was great, especially the hostess/waitress, Eunice (spelling?). She went over and beyond to ensure we had a great night. We had the all you can eat selection- which we probably won’t get again- only because we are not used to eating huge portions in one setting. Overall, fun night, great food! Brisket was the best!
The food was very good as was the service, nicely prepared at our table by a friendly waiter. We did the butcher's feast as we had 4 people. Not sure it was worth the price in terms of the amount of food that you get, but it is a fun experience.
Absolutely fantastic. We have tried other Korean BBQ places and this one did not disappoint either. Ari is a good one for upscale nights. Great selection, service, and cuts of meat as well as the overall presentation. Definitely will come back. Our favorite so far!
Not your usual Korean BBQ. For one, they have Wagyu beef imported from Japan and a top end ribeye, all beautifully marbled on the upper menu for melt in your mouth goodness.
The side dishes are fresh, varied and exciting. The staff are attentive and very knowledgeable.
There are affordable options such as the all you can eat menu but if You want to go all out the sky is the limit.
The cake shop provides another layer for after dinner so be sure to give it a visit.
Birthday dinner. They gave a free delicious cake to help celebrate my birthday!!!!
It was our second time there and we loved it. It's a shame it isn't more busy, they deserve to be. The place is huge and with just a few diners it lacked a little atmosphere, although there is music which helps. The food and service are excellent, will definitely return. All you can eat certainly filled us up!
This is a beautiful restaurant with excellent food! The quality if meat is much higher than other Korea BBQ restaurants and well worth it. The cocktails are unique and pair well with the meal. The service is attentive and informative. A must try!
Service and wait times were horrible! The restaurant was not even half full, but the server kept telling us he was too busy to get us simple things (i.e. forks, drinks, etc.). Also, the chef was not accomodating at all for our kids - we asked that they do a fried rice without kimchi, and they acted like it was impossible! Not what you’d expect from what they tout to be a high-end restaurant.
New experience. Kids enjoyed trying new taste. Server took time to talk through different taste and made recommendations since we arrived early in the evening.
This was our first time at a Korean steakhouse. Our server (Noah?) explained everything to us and cooked our food. He was attentive without hovering. The meat was good - might want to step up to Prime next time. But he “all you can eat” was the very best way to explore the options. Had a very fun time and will return.
It was my first Korean restaurant and it probably spoiled me for others. It was delicious, the service was excellent and most importantly fresh. We will be going back.
Food and service were awesome! Took my teenagers and they really enjoyed the cultural experience.
Great fresh food - steak and all meats were top quality!
The staff is awesome. They help you every step of the way with deciding what to get. This is especially helpful for those people that have not been to Korean BBQ before. If you are going for the all you can eat meals they warn you that the better cuts of meat are not on the all you can eat menu. But if you order the better cuts of meat they are of amazing quality.
After doing research on a few Korean BBQ places we decided to give Ari a chance. It was fantastic! Our server Michael was awesome and on point. Meat quality was great all the sides awesome. Only thing that wasn’t so spot on was bartender, didn’t seem to know what she was doing! It’s a bit more pricey than some places but worth it! 4 of us did all you can eat for $160! Which to me wasn’t bad! Will be returning!
The place is fine for Atlanta I suppose. The food is OK, but my comparison comes from living in NYC and eating in Korea Town in Queens and Manhattan. Comparatively, it wont survive in New York, but for Atlanta it does the job. For suburban Atlanta its likely the most flavor you will ever get ...!
We had an enjoyable time. The food and service were above Good! My only thought is that the all you can eat price was a bit pricey from my point of view when compared to competitors. However, I have not eaten at those less expensive locations so maybe you get what you pay for. Enjoy!
Love this place!! Food is delicious & quality of the meat is outstanding... so good that it melts in your mouth!!! Interior is equivalent to that of 5-Star restaurant and you’ll be applauded for taking your friends here(:
Personally I’ve taken at least 3 different friends (all separately) and they absolutely enjoyed and appreciated their dining experience. They were actually “Wow”ed.
I even had a casual business luncheon with executives and consultant, and it was a huge success.
I would have my next birthday party here if I do have one...
The party room is big and spacious that it can hold a lot of people.
It’s affordable and definitely get value for your money where returning visits are inevitable!!
Lots and lots of food! We ordered the "All you can eat" and we ate even more. Michael was a super waiter and chef. Everything was tasty and plentiful.
Expect to spend a long time here because you will need time to digest while getting ready for the next course.
Wow!! ARI Korean Steakhouse is definitely a place to visit. I heard so many complements from friends and saw its Zagat review as hottest restaurant in ATL. I wanted to visit and finally made myself there when I saw it was now on OpenTable. The food was on point and the service was definitely the best out of all the Korean restaurants I have visited in the area and I probably have been to every Korean restaurants in GA. I heard it was more expensive than other Duluth Korean barbecue but the quality of the food, service and decor is just so impressive that you will not regret. It was not even that expensive. Our bill was similar to the places like Breakers, 9292, or 678, but the quality of meat was so much better.
It is incomparable to the other Korean barbecue restaurants. Their duct system allows no smell afterwards and it is not as loud as the other restaurants. Not just the meat, but the side dishes are the best I tried in Atlanta area. We tried the couple menu (it had WAGYU!) but I am definitely going back to try their Premium combo next time with more friends. I saw another table ordering it and it looked so delicious and beautiful. There is $18.99 All you can eat option for weekday lunch so it is even cheaper and more options than the other Korean AYCE. I will bring my coworkers to try lunch menu next time and it is definitely suitable for business meetings. There is also a beautiful room for private events so if you are planning for special day, check it out!
I never leave a review but this place was so impressive that I had to! There is a beautiful cafe/cakeshop inside Their coffee was actually really good and it uses intelligentsia beans which is rare to find in this area. The restaurant is new so it was pretty slow in the beginning but after 7, it was full so make a reservation for the weekends for sure!
