Everything still perfect, but New spicy pork was so bitter and weird. Old one is perfect.

Food is great. Although there’s no all you can eat menu and things get pricey, generally it’s still very enjoyable.

Food was great and service was great; only suggestion was that the music and restaurant were very loud so it was often hard for our server to hear us and vice versa with masks on. Definitely would come back, though!

The food is great. It's my second to come here. 5-6 meat for 2 girls. I recommend their meat more than any other dish. Bibimbap is not as great as the meat, but it's ok.

We made a reservation and were made to wait event though we were on time and the restaurant was not even a quarter filled. When we sat down at a table the grill did not work. They tried to get it to work without success. It took them a while to move us to a new table. With the same drinks that were warm after waiting for them to repair the stove. Overall a really bad experience

It’s a good place for Jap BBQ especially now that most places are closed. Food is great and kinda expensive, but the food’s always been on the pricey side at this place.
Service was really attentive.

We wanted outdoor seating but it was drizzling. We were okay with the indoor too since the front doors were completely open and well ventilated. It wasn’t a closed space- decreasing COVID19 risk.

The host took our temperatures before letting us in. The servers were wearing masks and explained to us the ordering and BBQ process.

The garlic chicken was delicious. So were the other dishes.

Every single thing we consumed here was delicious! The corn and cheese appetizer was a risk but it was so worth it. I ordered two of the less expensive BBQ beefs and they were so yummy. Even the smoothie was amazing. Waitress took her time to explain all answers to our questions, and they were very COVID mindful.

I made a reservation for 6:30 PM, checked in with the host at 6:25-ish. The host informed me that they need a few more minutes until my table was ready. My boyfriend and I took a seat and waited. A little after 6:35 PM a couple walked through the door, and the same host who checked me in called, "Meghan"? Another couple (who just walked in) followed her without checking in and took our table! I went to the other hosted and asked how long for my table, and she said oh the other person took the wrong person (other person's name was Meggie)! How can the host take the wrong couple when I checked in with that host? On top of that other couple just walked through the door? When the other host spoke to the host that made the mistake, that host just looked at me blanked face. It just showed that host did not care at all (no apology or anything!). My boyfriend and I were not seated until 7:05 PM.

Food was good. Our waitress was very friendly and polite. We went with the premium. My boyfriend who never been there liked the food. We tried all the beef and the pork belly. For veggies we got mushrooms and spinach. We thought the spinach was surprisingly good. For dessert, we shared a scoop of matcha ice-cream (incredible) and both got smores.
