    The food is good but for the amount you pay for, I’d expect to receive more food. We had a party of 3 guests and ordered the large (3-4ppl). It was the same amount as when you order the small (1-2ppl). We were still hungry either way. I’d say it’s better to not go with a larger party, it’s better to go to an “all you can eat Korean BBQ”. The quality here is the same quality at any other place, at least somewhere else you are getting multiple meats versus just 3 meats. But if you go as a couple, it’s worth the time, quaint and easy to locate. We paid $140 for just the food - no drinks. We shouldn’t be hungry afterwards though in my opinion. Staff is very nice and great customer service, restaurant is clean and well kept. Food is good quality and fresh.

    Excellent, would recommend. Ordered the beef dinner set for 2 of us. Choose 3 of 4 beef items: galbi, steak, marinated. Comes with rice, soup, banchan, egg custard, cheese corn. $78. The grill is a convex heavy iron plate heated by gas control vented directly above. The restaurant is not smoky at all. Park in the paylot along the red line and bring ticket in for validation. This is in the very east interior end of the new chinatown square.

    I enjoyed the experience. They give you a lot of different types of foods and flavors to explore. They shave to meat so that it cooks quickly. It was tasty but not delicious. I would definitely go back and bring out of town guests. It was both fun and affordable.

    Meat was average quality, not great. Side dishes are good. Overall 4/5. It’s ok if you crave for Korean food.

    Food and atmosphere was really good; will definitely come back with a larger group (6 was a perfect number). The only thing was that they skimped on the side dishes (banchan) and when we asked for more they charged us for the extra. It’s standard for KBBQ to provide free banchan because you’re paying for expensive meat but the meat was good and the amount of meat was also good for our group of 6.

    Not the same as it used to be. Prices have gone way up and portions have gone way down. Won't be going back any time soon.

    We love to visit Korean BBQ spots in each city we travel to. Daebak is our favorite so far! Atmosphere was electric, food was fantastic and the price was quite fair.
