BORI promises not only a luxury, fine dining experience but an entertaining one as well. We have the freshest ingredients and the friendliest staff to cater to your every need!
It’s was an awesome experience. This was our second time this week.
The food and service are incredible! Our waitress did an excellent job at our table. The restaurant is clean and beautiful.
My new favorite Korean restaurant! Super clean, very attentive staff, the food is superb!
Excellent food, original... no heartburn after 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼
Tout simplement magnifique ..! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 ...
Everything was so wonderful and delicious!! Our waitress was great and we will definitely be back!
It was great. First time there and we would go back
Cool art gallery waiting area.
Lunch with a friend. Had the grilled beef belly. Great choice. Side salad was dressed properly with a great dressing. All the little bowls of sides were full of flavor. The waitress was the best cooking the beef belly at the table on a gas grill. Wonderful meal. Will definitely go back.
I have been to Bori several time since they opened and have never been disappointed. The food quality is above and beyond what you get at other Korean restaurants in the houston area. The wait staff is young and energetic, which keeps the mood lively and fun. Hands down the best Korean restaurant in Houston.
Nothing much to say other than it’s a brilliant restaurant with big portions.
Good food as always
Second time here in January of 2021. Well worth it food wise. Service was good but not as good as the first time. Waitress kept disappearing for extended periods. Had to get another waiter a few times to address our table’s needs.
Food was really tasty. We had 2 meats the marinated boneless short rib was super tasty and the wagyu was also pretty good.
Fried rice is good but I preferred the glass noodles with beef.
BORI is the BEST Korean BBQ Houston has to offer! Everything is on point!
Excellent meat quality! I visit BORI weekly.
Very Good. Will be going back. Ambience is very nice and the service is very attentive.
Amazing food, amazing service... Really nice place.
Best Korean in town...... I especially love their marinated items
Had the Butcher's Feast, plenty of food for two, everything was delicious and the service was great!
Best BBQ in Houston. Waitresses / Chefs cook meats to perfection.
Greatest Service with very fresh food. Seafood Pancake and Salad are the best.
Very quiet and intimate I would definitely recommend this place for a good first date. 👍🏾
Made last minute reservations on Christmas Eve to dine in on Christmas Day, never had been here before but have seen some amazing foodie posts from friends on Instagram. My whole extended family was invited- total of 9 people. The food was very delicious. The quality of meat was excellent as the dry aged for 45 days tenderness just melted in your mouth. Our server, was sweet and keen as to what we needed more side dishes of and executed promptly. She was attentive without being overbearing. We couldn't have asked for better service during a time like this. Just be aware that you will spend when coming here, approximately $55/pp however the food and service is great. So if you're willing to spend on quality, Korean bbq this is the best in Houston I have been so far. Even the a-la-carte dishes were on point as my Korean aunt made comments like "This soup is better than I have had in Korea.."
Only complaint if any was that after dinner was over the bussers were very focused on clearing the whole table as soon as practically possible and we felt we were a bit rushed to "get out" of there when I came with a party of 9. It was a bit annoying and unprofessional, but while I understand the need to sanitize and scurry the next customers to be seated, they could have waited until everyone had gotten up and left their chairs so that the sanitizing and clearing of tables can commence. We did have a large party, but we left pretty promptly at around 2 hours which to my understanding about 1.5 hours are given to couples for dining usually amidst Covid when I have made reservations and dined in. So with 9, I'd think we could have stayed back longer without having felt rushed out.
Anyways, aside from that I felt the food, service, and presentation were excellent. I highly recommend and will be back on special occasions.
Have been here a multiple x .. business, special occasion, just to chill ... Nice elegant..! beautiful delicious great quality food .. Services ... 5 stars 🌟 every x! Thanks for remembering my favorite table spot. Thank you staffs... ! Don’t forget the art studio ! Can’t wait till the reopening of second bar in the lounging area...
Everything was absolutely beautiful. From the decor to the food, we were amazed. If you haven’t been you must, it’s a hidden gem in SpringBranch and I can’t wait to go back!
It is ok, but for the amount and quality of the food is very expensive, they need to improve service (giving you information about the food) especially if you don't know how Korean BBQ works
The last time we went to Bori, I was a bit disappointed. The service was not very good. The young lady who attended to us slightly burned the wagu which is an expensive mistake. Meat had that char taste. She was so easily distracted going here and there and the meat was not always attended too. They don’t want customers to necessarily touch the grilling because that is part of their service that sets them apart from other Korean BBQ places. But she was not good. The food quality was good otherwise. Ban Chan (Korean side dishes) were good and most of the food taste good. I would say this is normally one of my favorite places, but that day, the service was off and it threw off the BBQ.
On a good note, I did purchase gift cards in which if you purchase $100, they will give you an additional $25 for future visit. So for $100 you get $125 worth for next time. Thank you Kevin! My fellow Korean American...
Not sure if they are still having the promotion, but if they do it’s definitely worth it.
I look forward to the next time and redemption to what is normally a 5 out of 5 in my book.
Food was great!
Service could be friendlier. First impression at the door was icy and not very welcoming even though we had reservation. The waitress was attentive.
Service is a bit slow maybe the new place still needs to settle in. Overall nice place for dinner.
The meat quality is very impressive and the servers were kind and very nice.
Great atmosphere for just a few friends or a huge group! Service is fantastic (ask for Brandon or Sarah our personal favorite waitstaff), there ventilation system is great so you don't leave smelling like Korean BBQ. Wait til you take a walk through there Art Gallery or go to one of various waiting areas. There small garden in the back is lovely too! Plus they have private rooms...
Excellent quality beef. In fact, made a return visit simply for the “melt in your mouth” beef. Equally delicious was the seafood pancake which was nice and crispy. It had an almost hash brown crispness.
The only disappointment was the bulgogi—the flavor did not compensate for its toughness.
The tour through the attached art gallery was a nice way to end the meal.
Very attentive and friendly.
Didn't think I'd find a place like this in Ktown.
Honestly, the best staff and servers. They were so nice and wanted to provide the best experience possible. This restaurant put me in a food induced coma! Everything tasted delicious!
Excellent food as usual. My friends and I love this place. Near KBBQ in Houston area
Food was great. Service was very good. Cannot wait to go back.
We love Korean BBQ and this new place its amazing!
Beautiful decor and the food was great
Marinated BBQ ribs were delicious
