It’s been great. The staff were professional and friendly. The food is superb. Yes, it’s pricey but it’s worth it. Corry was our server and he’s awesome. Always checked in on us. The rest of the staff were pretty cool too. I’ll come back again when I swing by Vegas again.

Loved Best Friends! The atmosphere was totally fun and the food was delicious. You have to order the chicken wings, they were some of the best wings I've ever had. We totally enjoyed our dinner here and would love to go back if ever in Vegas again. Would recommend to anyone looking for a unique experience on the strip!

5 stars for everything...service (Thanks Corey!), environment, food and drinks. The family style concept was great. The tacos, kalbi, and garlic chicken were highlights of our meal.

The food was fantastic! The service really make you feel like family or an old friend. Really nice design inside. The portions were generous, spent $100 between my wife and I with drinks and had left overs. I will go again and recommend to others to do the same.

Such a fun place with a great vibe and incredible food.
Roy’s tacos are the best in the world. His garlic chicken was also spectacular. Definitely recommend highly.
It was especially fun and special that Chef Roy was actually there the night we went. He’s friendly and laid back.

Had to wait even though I had reservations. Once we were seated, everything was great. Had the street corn, kogi tacos, kalibi short ribs, kimchi fried rice, and the date cake. Service was on point and friendly.

Fun experience and food was great. Service was a little slow
And things came out in an order but definitely a fun experience with great food! Definitely get the kimchi fried rice and spicy pork dish. You won’t miss out if you skip the super fatty, small portion kalbi ribs or the Korean wings which were good but not what we expected.

Everything was AMAZING. The food was a glorious fusion of cultures like nothing we’ve experienced before. The portions are worth sharing, but you’ll want it all to yourself regardless of being full. The staff was attentive but not overwhelming, incredibly friendly and helpful. The paintings on the wall and decor throughout take the experience to a whole new level. 10/10 recommend.

It is not authentic Korean food. Can’t find worse Korean restaurants in the states. Also the fee charged is higher than what is shown in the menu. Fair service but it offers very low quality Korean food. Not worth the price at all!!!

This is our second time dining here and every time we are in Vegas, we plan to go here. The vibe is very cool: like your best bud recently opened a restaurant in the back of his bodega and he invited you to be one of the first to dine. The DJ was fantastic, lots of songs from my 90s childhood. The servers were very attentive and made great recommendations. and. The. Foooooood!! So good. Korean street food with just enough twist to be innovative with just enough tradition to make your belly AND your heart happy. So lucky to have Roy Choi as a best friend!!

This was my first time so I tried the Chef’s Special which gives you a little bit of everything and it was amazing! The garlic chicken and Kimchi rice was excellent! For desert I had their date cake, omg, my favorite! I can’t wait to go back and try the street corn and bbq tacos!!

Was so happy to see they were open and back in business! Love the food and ambiance combo, that make it more than just "another place to eat". We ordered the whole fish platter and kalbi short ribs. Both we're served steaming and packed full of flavor. Considering the cost of dining along the strip, I genuinely feel like the value-for-dollar was fair. A DJ was spinning some of our favorite old school tunes, which was appreciated since there are still abbreviated entertainment options due to Covid restrictions. Did get a little loud at times, but that's ok because we couldn't talk with our mouths full anyway!

We were unsure what to expect going in to this restaurant. We have passed by it in Park MGM multiple times and I am so glad we finally tried it. It was our best meal and the best atmosphere of our trip!

We ordered the Slippery Shrimp and street tacos. Both were delicious!

I don't even know where to begin! If I could just click an infinite amount of stars, I would. The food is so amazing and their service is just impeccable! We had already decided to do the Chef's tasting menu, but we were given the option for Roy's tasting menu (off menu) and went with that. We got to try everything we wanted, the portions were perfect, with leftovers to spare! (There were 3 of us). We will definitely be making a reservation, everytime we're in Vegas!
