This was my first time at Char'd and I will absolutely be back! The food was delicious and you got fantastic portions sizes for the price. Would highly recommend as one of the best Asian spots in town!

Apps were delicious. Entrees not as much. Beef bulgogi had good flavor but was very fatty. Nice renovated building!

Tried this at the insistence of my daughter who is going through a Korean food phase. Ate here on a quiet Tuesday night in early January. Restaurant is in old warehouse district and the horn beam decor fits. There is a bar seating area at entrance and restaurant tables a half level up behind the bar. Nice decor.

As a starter we ordered the gyozas - pork dumplings. Slightly crispy and basted with a spicy savory sauce they were excellent. There were six pieces Zoe could be a meal for someone with a smaller appetite. At least one or two tables after us ordered the same dish so must be popular. They have a nice selection overall.

My daughter got the beef bulgogi and I ordered the pork version. Each had a different flavor profile with the beef similar to a soya based sauce, while the pork had a slightly more bbq / chili flavor. They came with a medley of veggies and some really good quality rice.

The server, Emma, was very good and helped us with recommendations. The pacing was right and the food came out fresh and hot. True it wasn’t super busy but everything is how you would expect at a well run place.

There are a fair amount of tables and I saw a nook or two where smaller private parties could be held. No idea of outdoor seating exists. Parking is in the street though there are lots and garages nearby. Definitely urban.

I am sure they can accommodate a vegetarian though my recollection was that about the only non meat dish was a mushroom bibimbop. This may not be accurate as my wife does not so spicy so that eliminated most of the dishes that mentioned that. Some of the others could have been non meat. Beef is the prime protein though. My guess is that you can dial up or down the spice level and for sure I will now be bringing her here for another night out.

Final word. It’s the next day and my daughter wants to go back again tonight…

Every dish we had was so flavorful & cooked to perfection! Strongly recommend the Kimchi scallion pancakes & KFC wings were bursting with flavor and great crisp on the outside. Roasted Cauliflower & Shishito was very tasty. The Galbi boneless short rib cooked to perfection with Amazing flavor that comes with side of purple rice, lettuce, sauces and pickled onions. Bimimbap and Jeju Paloma were Amazing as well. Service, Ambiance, Portions were Great! Def will be back!

Every time we have out of town guests we come here because of how awesome it is. Food was amazing as always, though the service this time was very poor. Our appetizer was forgotten about and it took three asks and a long wait to just get a refill on water. Never have had bad service there before though, so will still go back, but probably the worst service I have had in a while that night.

The food was good. One of my favorite restaurants. The edamame starter was cold. They used to be served hot. Don't know if that's how it is served now (they were better warm). Everything else was really good. Will eat here again.

Went on a Monday night and made reservations for 5, but they were very accommodating when we changed it to 7 last minute. Food was excellent as well as service. First time there and would definitely go back again. Personally had the braised pork belly, KFC, dumplings, and cauliflower, which all were very flavorful.

The food and drink were fabulous! Beer and cocktail list is top notch (Pseudo Sue on tap!) Had the garlic chili shrimp and seafood scallion pancake, which were outstanding- still thinking about them! The spicy squid and pork entree was also excellent. Lovely spot great on d energy but not too noisy. Service good. We’ve been there before and it will s always very tasty.

First time visitors. Really enjoyed the food and the custom craft cocktails. We had the Leeky Chicken, KFC Wings and the dumplings to start and shared the braised pork belly. All were quite good.
As good as the food was the staff really hustled with basically one server covering the whole restaurant and the host was also making all the bar drinks. At no point was there a long wait for items and the staff didn't seem stressed out. Nice job.

This is not the traditional Korean BBQ restaurant experience with meat cooked at the table and lots of sides. That's not to say the food isn't completely delicious. We enjoyed everything we tried. Highly recommend the dumplings appetizer. Yum! Food took a long time to arrive and we got a bit antsy about it but the server was friendly enough.
