    Bulpan is excellent. The service is stellar, the food is great, and it's not intimidating to those who have never tried Korean food (like my wife). It reminded me of my time spent in Seoul, and I enjoyed every aspect of my meal. I highly recommend the combo meals. Don't hesitate to ask your server/griller for recommendations. Ours did a fantastic job.

    Loved everything about this place - food, service, friendliness of staff - except the ultra bright lighting. It seemed a bit jarring, and diminished the ambiance for me. Overall, Great birthday dinner.

    Food was delicious and service was excellent. They were out of one thing we had wanted to try and wish they had a slightly larger drink selection (beer, hard cider, flavors of soju, cocktails). Overall excellent meal.

    The table was too small for our party of 8. We were so close to each other and there were so many plates on the table it was a bit overwhelming. I wish the servers had explained the banchans and sauces. The food was really good though. The meats were all cooked perfectly. Loved the dark green cabbage and reddish dish. I wish they offered mild kimchi and mild cucumber dish. It was too spicy for my kids to eat it and my grandparents were choking. We are definitely ameuturs when it comes to Korean dining but still an enjoyable meal.

    Probably one of the best Korean restaurants I have had. The food and service was spot on. The only thing I would say is the portion size of the meats is very small for the amount of money you pay for. Overall a great experience.

    Our adult kids and their families were in town for the holidays and we wanted to do something different and fun. We all enjoy Korean food so where better to go than Bulpan Korean BBQ where we could sit around a large table and enjoy the many delicious side dishes and entree meats.

    Had a lovely dinner @ Bulpan. Nice selection of banchan already on the table when we arrived; great selection of pre-arranged menu options. We chose dinner C, with 6 different marinated cuts of pork, beef, and chicken; all expertly cooked by David.

    I wasn’t sure what to order but ended up getting a combo and everything was carefully cooked perfectly with attention to our preferences. Fun for a family meal or for just the two of us! Great place. Yeah, It’s bright but kind of suits the energetic atmosphere.

    Really delicious. Nice ambiance (a bit loud, but still enjoyable). Waiter had a lot going on, so dirty dishes had a tendency to pile up, but otherwise service was good. Previous Korean BBQ restaurants we’ve been to you cook your own food, but here the chefs do it for you right next to your table. Would definitely go again!

    This place has really quality meats, great banchan, and a good drink list (they're starting to incorporate local wine also)! Their staff seems young but knows what they're doing. The setup with all the grills in the bar galley behind a wall makes it fun for our toddler to watch and experience the grill without access to it. This, plus the roomy tables, makes this very family-friendly imo. K-pop plays in the background at a level that's just enough for vibes but not overly loud. So glad this place opened up!! Will definitely be back with others.

    Good Korean restaurant, designed for the uninitiated or too timid to grill their own. Meat quality is high. Side dishes are fewer than the best places in NoVa but I'm glad there is a Korean owned and operated meat place in Cville. I'm Korean American from OC and LA, Cali who has eaten bowls of rice for 52 years, and counting, so I've eaten at plenty of Korean restaurants.
