Overpriced. Did the "all you can eat," which is really a prix fixe offering. At one point, 45 minutes passed between courses without any attention from our server. Would not return.

The food was absolutely amazing. But if you have a big party the don’t break up the receipts which was irritating and almost ruined the experience.

Food was amazing as always. This was our 3rd time there. Sadly service was pretty crappy this time around. We never received an item and when we asked about it the server said we didn’t order it. Yet when we got our bill the ‘said item’ was on our bill. So obviously we did order it and when we brought it to our servers attention she could care less. Was kinda frustrating.

With that said the food is SO good. And we will definitely go back and just hope we get a server that is a little better.

The server helped do much explaining menu and how portions worked . The food was incredible and filling. Everything was outstanding and would recommend going with either plan A or Plan B and they will adjust portions and also substitute to save you money ( or server saved us $50 by doing a substitution for our kids ). Would recommend fast all day , and do not wear tight pants ......

Food, service and atmosphere were great! Warm dinner rolls to start is always a nice touch. We ordered the kalbi, lamb lollipops and uni dynamite. The kalbi and lamb were really tender. The uni dynamite rice comes with three large pieces of uni and it added to the creaminess of the rice. I really liked the spicy kick to the rice.

I thoroughly enjoyed the live DJ and his choice of music. The service was top notch. Our waitress was really observant and consistently refilled our water when she noticed the glasses were less than half full. I loved the check out process. She left a wireless card reader so I could choose how I wanted to split the check, how much to tip and how to pay whether with physical card or digitally.

We LOVE this place! The food and feel of Best Friends is all the vibe. We are East Coasters who live in Cali now so the combo hip hop vibes of both coast with the food culture of LA is exactly what we love. Roy is also one of the best chef’s and philanthropists. He sends a meaningful message to the community through his food and docu-series.

My husband and I love KOREAN BBQ! So we were excited when we learned of Best Friend opening. We had the kalbi and the kimchee fried rice and the banchan sampler. Everything was delicious and flavorful! Music was pretty loud making it a little difficult for conversation but thats a common theme throughout Vegas so it is what it is. Food portion was great especially for the cost (very affordable for Vegas). I would definitely recommend and we will definitely be back

Honestly one of the best meals I've ever had. I've eaten an intense amount of Korean including high end Korean in Korea. It was just so good.

The music was SO loud so many people complaining but they would not do anything about it. Don’t go on Friday or Saturday night if you are with your best friends that you actually like and want to talk to.

The food is delicious! Highly recommend. However, the noise level was off the charts, we had a group of 8 from out of town, so it was hard to visit. I will go again but maybe during the week when the music is not blaring.

Love the music playlist! It def kept us entertained while we ingested some amazing grub! Your food has inspired me to plan future travel to S. Korea. The menu, featuring old-school pics of Roy and his family were entertaining as well. Food was spot on. The fried Kim chi fried rice was nuts! I couldn't get enough of it. The interior was a little cheeky but probably symbolized Roy's personality, but it was cool. It was all cool. The tunes, menu, hip atmosphere, all cool and fun!

We shared various dishes In order to sample for our first time. The kimchi rice, the street corn, the short ribs, Kogi tacos, and cucumber cocktails were delicious. Eggplant and garlic chicken were average. Service was great. Downfall was the payment system they just implemented. We had to figure Out our own payment split on a little terminal that was placed before us. It was a bit confusing. Other than that, atmosphere is cute with a speakeasy entrance. Music is great except way too loud. Will go again.

This needs to be on your Vegas bucket list. To say the food was amazing would be an understatement. We ordered the slippery shrimp, kimchi fried rice, beef short rib tacos, and street corn. Though I loved everything, the tacos were the show stopper. I could have eaten 2 whole orders of the tacos by myself and left happy. Chef Roy Choi’s passion for cooking is evident in his food. Between that and the fun, unpretentious atmosphere of the restaurant, you will leave wanting to be Chef Roy’s best friend.
