Great overall experience. Some of the items, like the Uni Rice, were way too spicy. We also were disappointed that the steak fries we enjoyed last month were replaced. Otherwise, it’s a delicious experience. Looking around the room, you can tell that everyone was just happy.

This is my third time eating there with a group of friends and everything was fantastic as usual. Nothing has really changed which to me is a great thing . It consistent helpful staff and well priced. Keep in mind the majority of there dishes are served family style so small groups work best but I've also eaten there with my wife just could order as many dishes as I would like to since the average dish serves at least 4 people. Im a regular to Vegas and this is my new go to place.

FUN AND FUNKY RESTUARANT. TOTALLY DIFFERENT VIBE THAN ANY OTHER RESTUARANT ON THE STRIP. FROM BEING GREETED AND SEATED BY THE HOSTESS WHO WAS GENERALLY INTERESTED IN OUR EXPERIENCE AND IF SHE COULD DO ANYTHING FOR MY WIFE AND I AS WE WERE BEING SEATED TO THE VERY PROFESSIONAL SERVER AND TABLE STAFF MADE IT A VERY MEMORABLE EXPERIENCE.

NOW FOR THE FOOD AND DRINKS. BOTH WERE ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. TO BE HONEST THIS WAS MY WIFE'S DINING SELECTION AND I WAS JUST ALONG TO MAKE HER HAPPY AND I LEFT THE RESTUARANT AS BIG OF A FAN AS SHE IS. THE APPETIZER SELECTIONS TO THE MAIN COURSE SELECTION ARE SO DIFFERENT THAN ANYTHING WE HAVE EATEN IN LV. WE ORDERED THE DUMPLINGS AND KIMCHI FOR OUR APPETIZERS AND THE SHORT RIB TACO'S AND THE SPICY PORK FOR OUR MAIN COURSE.

THE BEST POINT TO BRING UP IS THAT IN TALKING TO THE TABLE NEXT TO OURS THAT NIGHT WE FOUND OUT THAT THIS WAS THERE 2ND TIME BACK AS THEY HAD SUCH A GREAT MEAL THE NIGHT BEFORE AND WANTED TO COME BACK A 2ND NIGHT TO DIVE DEEPER INTO THE MENU.

AS THIS WAS OUR LAST NIGHT IN LV AS WELL WE MOST CERTAINLY MADE A 2ND VISIT OURSELVES. WE WILL BE MAKING THIS OUR FIRST STOP ON OUR NEXT TRIP TO LV.

Best Friend has a great late 80's feel to it....from the Adidas Track suits the servers wear, to the musics and the murals.......and oh by the way, the food is off the hook!! Perfect place to a have pre-show dinner, food comes out quick and the portions were huge. Funky place that we will be back at!!

This is a Vegas gem! Coming from NYC, it was refreshing to find a spot you couldn’t find in another major city. The food is delish. Loved the gluten free fried chicken. The server’s recs were on point! It’s casual but still great food! Make a Rez! Would definitely go back.

We had high expectations for food and service. Food was great, but our server didn’t provide us with any guidance on how much food we should order for our party of two. Once we ordered, we were almost forgot about and had to ask for the status of our last dish. Got the duck, while it was tasty, not sure it was worth the $49 price tag as it was that much food on the plate and advertised as “lettuce wrap”, but really it’s a deconstructed salad.

I might try this place again, but with so many options in Vegas it makes it a tough choice.

Met up for an early dinner with friends. We were all in town for work and had been to steakhouse after steakhouse for business dinners. Best Friend was refreshingly casual, with unique, delicious food, and massive servings for reasonable prices. My only complaint is that our server could have been more transparent about the serving sizes. Our 3 plates for 3 people was way too much food.

We had the most awesome time at Best Friend the other night after a very bad experience at the TMobile center. Stacy our server welcomed us back with open arms. She remembers my wife always and what we life to drink which is rare in Las Vegas and as a local I give patronage to restaurants with this level of service.

My glass was never empty, the table was plentiful with food and good company what more could you ask.

I would recommend because it was a cool place. The taste of the Korean taco was insane but my taco was very watery/ messy. The flavour won though over the wateryness. The uni rice was so good but WAY too much mayonnaise. It was a fun place, it was good and the service was good but there are things that could be improved.

I would say be prepared for a backyard bbq experience with a boomin’ bass. Also I would try the special menu instead of the per person meal in the front of the menu. We have excellent Korean food in San Diego, so i am spoiled. But if you are new to Korean food try the per person meal listed in front of the menu. Our server was amazing and sweet!

This is a creative, hip, unique dining experience that everyone should experience at least once. If you do that, you'll want to come back and do it again and again. Where else can you find servers in Adidas track suits and an 80's vibe mixed with very current fusion dishes. I was thrilled to find this gem, and can't wait to experience it again.

Great job bringing a fun LA vibe to the strip. Get the set meals for the table if it your first time experiencing Roy’s food. Everyone at our table had a different favorite dish. Slippery shrimp is just a spicy wonderful plate of Sri racha heaven.
