    Selection of meats was decent at best, sauce selection wasn’t great, appetizers lacking bit. Service was good, ambience was ok. Bathroom was out of service, had to go across to Teaxas De Brazil for bathroom.

    We selected the OYCE for $39.99 per person. The price per person was high, the meat selection has no taste whatsoever - even the marinated meat. The pan-fried dumpling was pre-made and cold when it arrived at our table. The shrimp was pre-cook, which was a big disappointment. The salad and side dishes were a lot better tasting than the meats. Breakers, you will need to revamp your menu and make it taste better to warrant the $39.99 per person fee. Unless this is changed, I will not be back, nor will I refer anyone to your place.

    It was reasonable busy for a Sunday night while still room for walk-ins, so this is a good time to come and have a dinner with friends without having to shout to be heard. With the economy we were guessing, the AYCE has been reduced from three differently priced options to the middle of the road value package and we were happy with the choices and overall value. The raw meat portions are smaller but we have the attitude that it means having more variety without waste. And it's still AYCE so it's all good in the end. Our server started off ok. He asked us if we had been before and not assuming that since we're obviously Asian heritage that we're also Korean which we are. We assured that we were fine with cooking our own food. With our first round of meat we quickly realized he had the temp way too high. Wanting to save on energy costs with a quick cooking heat is one thing, but we had a challenge in keeping the meat from burning, especially as many Korean marinades have some form of sugar which can be scorched if the heat is too high. At this restaurant with their system of indoor grills, the heat needs to be medium to have it high enough to cook with full flavor caramelization but not so high that it burns. It also allows for more rounds of meat cooking before having to switch the burner plates, thus saving on water and human elbow grease resources. We know how to order Korean BBQ & in which order to cook the different meats so each round is enhanced by the prior w/o having to switch the charred plate, so long as the temp is right. All throughout the meal it was a tug of war w/him jacking up the heat (after we said we were fine & know what to do) & us waiting for him to walk away before we could lower it & save our dinner. The management would be well served in assessing their training & attitude towards the grill temp. There's no way this server could have helped other tables w/o burning the inventory if a table wanted more attentive grill service.

    The food was good,but not sure the cost is worth another visit. The server was very kind but still learning so he was struggling to keep up. Overall it was a nice experience. Like I said earlier not sure it’s worth the cost.

    The waitress was not available and we would be sitting and looking for her. The food was not seasoned. All the meat we tried except for the spicy pork really had no flavor. The flavor came from the three different sauces provided to dip. The sauces were not even very Korean. Que and Iron Age are far superior for less cost.

    When trying to change reservation, called five times but call was never picked up. Initially seated directly beneath a blaring tv and next to kitchen. I asked to be moved and we were. I appreciated the dimly-lit restaurant but the blue lights were shining directly in the eyes of shorter family members. They were too bright and very unpleasant. Food was tasty, but not outstanding. Waiter was excellent and worked very hard, but was split with too many other tables. I did not feel our meal was worth $100.00 for four people which didn’t include drinks, tax and tip. I enjoyed the overall experience because it was new and different, but we will not be returning.

    We arrived at 8:00pm after being asked to arrive prior to 8:30. We never received our appetizer that was part of our meal. We inquired several times and eventually were told, “sorry it’s too late.” $8 was taken off of the total for this. We were also told all orders needed to be in by 9:30. At 9:15 we put in for our final order of meats, those never came. We asked at 9:25 and were told it was too late. Our server was nice, but the amount of mistakes & miscommunications made for a frustrating experience.

    Food was actually quite good, but service was terrible. When we were seated, our server came over to say hi, didn't introduce himself, but asked us for our names...why? I can understand he was trying to be friendly, but we were there to eat, not for a meeting. Rookie mistake, I thought, but it got worse. We had to ask three times for water and extra place settings. We had to ask for more side dishes - there were six of us but they only gave us enough for two people. When the meat arrived, server gave no instructions - is he going to cook for us? Do we cook it ourselves? I don't mind doing it myself, but it would be nice to know. I ended up cooking most of the time; he only checked in towards the end, claiming that he's tending four other tables, ok, but he wasn't cooking at their tables either! When he finally came over to cook our meat, he just dumped it on the grill and leaving the rest to...again...us. When we asked for extra items, he wasn't listening carefully and brought us wrong items. the only reason why I dind't bring this up to the manager was because the food was actually good and I thought maybe, maybe, it's the server's first night - wanted to give him a break. When the bill came, they had already added 20% gratuity, even more annoying. I sighed but paid it anyway. I really don't see how this server would be able to continue to work there, but I didn't want to be the one to have him fired. Or maybe he won't be fired, as it's so hard to find servers because of COVID...

    Went there for my birthday, was only a few tables. The service was really friendly and helpful. The price and size of appetizers are ridiculous. We got free ones with our meal and the portions were vastly different. The meat was delicious so was the mango soju cocktail was DELICIOUS! So excited to go back there!

    Love this new Korean BBQ restaurant in Fair Oaks Mall. All you can eat option is a great deal. Highly recommend the prime beef bulgogi and marinated pork steak. Very nice modern restaurant with TV screens & friendly staff. Bar looks awesome although I don't drink so I haven't sat there. My wife and I come here regularly and browse the mall after eating.

    It was pretty easy to set/get reservations. It wasn’t crowded for a Tuesday night being a Lunar New Year. First off, I have to address the chopsticks. Don’t know if it’s just me but it was difficult to use cause it was flat. The quality and flavor of meats wasn’t that great even for that price. I know it’s an all you can eat, but they don’t give you that much when ordering. So you have to keep asking for your next selection and the waitstaff was very minimum. So you have to wait to get your orders. It was surprising to us when they asked to change out the grill. All they did was get a wet towel/napkin and just wipe the grill down. I guess it’s still new and the grill was nonstick so they thought to just wipe it down. Overall, we always try to explore new places to eat, but I don’t think we’ll be back.

    The food was wonderful and tasted great, the staff was helpful and made the experience even better. It was a little on the noisier side in the resteraunt and the seat I sat on did shale a little but the food made up for it. I do wish the drink prices were a little cheaper and that there was maybe some non alchohalic Korean drinks to go with the food but other than that minor detail it's bussin
