We love Best Friend, it was our second trip and we chose to do the sampler menu. Everything was delicious but a tad bit on the salty side beside that everything was great.

The entire experience was outstanding, from the ambiance, to the service, to the food. We usually get the spicy pork and the tempura, but the latest visit we got the french fries (seasoned with ramen dust) and the esquites. Both were outstanding!

AMAZING! We ordered the chef's menu and everything was absolutely delicious. We will have to visit again when in Vegas. The restaurant does play rather loud music which isn't quite our thing, but every other aspect of the experience was wonderful. One of the best meals of my life, hands down.

It was too loud , music wise. My wife and I looked forward to enjoying dinner at this place as I am a fan of Roy’s food. We had to basically yell to speak to each other. Not recommended unless you are very young and don’t mind losing some hearing during your meal.

Of you are looking for a calm quiet sit in the corner and dine this place is not it. But if you like an energetic setting and amazing Korean food this IS your place. We had the beef tip tacos, tempura platter and BBQ ribeye and gracious they were all so good. My husband's old fashion impressed and he is a bourbon snob. I had a tequila based drink called Watermelon and it was very enjoyable. Also don't let the convenience store front persuade you to pass it up as there is a large dining area in the back.

Very understanding about getting there 15 minutes after reservation time. Once seated, our server was very attentive. Food was amazing except the fries but only because I personally like them to be more on the crispier side. All in all amazing experience and a must when you are here in Vegas!

Fun atmosphere, enjoyed the music but it’s very very loud. Hard to hear.
Some dishes were great. The ribeye was way overcooked. Skip that.

Loved the food, esp. the elote corn and spicy pork. I’m a huge fan of Roy by way of his Chef cooking series. The restaurant is a happy place. It has a must try, must return kind of vibe. Can’t wait to see if he ever adds his meatball lasagna. *k

The best dish was the Korean fried rice. My husband liked the eggplant schnitzel even though it wasn’t what we were expecting. It wasn’t thin but more like an eggplant cut in half, battered and deep fried. The Korean wings were ok. There was a DJ playing so it’s hard to hear each other talk but the music was great. The side dishes are extra which is ridiculous because they are normally included. Don’t think we’ll go back. Nothing special.

I eat a lot of authentic Korean food so earning 5 stars from me is a tough one. All things considered, Best Friend did well enough. Food was good - portions were quite generous. Our server was friendly, but the hostess was lukewarm. Good thing I got a mood boost after dinner at Bruno Mars’ concert! Uptown funk beats any other kind of weird funk. My best friend would agree with me on this. :)

Third or fourth time dining. Always enjoy it, but my Korean wife says the food should be a little less salty. And believe me, she is an excellent cook!
