Our server this Saturday afternoon was a bit overworked, so the table and floor needed a wipe, one item was missing/late, and we had to prompt for tea refills and a grill change, but our food was reliably good.

BBQ in a booth, worry free about getting close to other people. Comfortable to dine even at this special situation.

Came to meet with a gf. We got there in time for happy hour (2pm-5pm), where they have a happy hour menu with items priced from $3-$5. The Toro Beef and Umakara rib eye were our favourites. Nicely marinated, the beef had lots of flavour, making the dipping sauces (3 kinds) almost unnecessary. Our bill came to ~ $40 including taxes, for the both of us (~ $19 each before tax) ...but we were stuffed! I really liked the fact that the grills were practically smokeless and that my clothes didn't smell of BBQ meats when I got home!

Fun, good value, good food. Major issue!!! They quit using frozen mugs for the draft Sapporo beer - this a major offence in my book. Salty BBQ meat with a frozen mug draft Sapporo such that the top of the beer had ice crystals and the layer just beneth was rolling, partly frozen - that is one of life's simple pleasures - in my opinion. A pairing that is a 10 out of 10! I will come back, but not as enthusiastically :)

I’ve only been to this location a handful of times, but this location by far has the best service. They were very attentive and very friendly! I usually have to wave down a waiter at other locations but before I could even think about waving one down, one of them would come by. I will say that if you don’t like a place with louder music, you probably wouldn’t like this location — but i think that the music added to the ambience (especially since it was music that I already listen to!)

Food is good as usual. It is one of my favourite restaurants. The portion of salad felt lesser than before, but the flavour is still delicious.

4 of us went and ordered a sharing platter for 4 people. Was surprised the amount of food that came and kept coming. Loads left over not that it wasn’t nice but just because we was so full
Loads of variety and we tried lots of cuts of meat that we would normally eat, all delicious.

Only downside the table was absolutely full with dishes each time we made space more food came

Our server was the most attentive I’ve ever had at any BBQ restaurant. He changed the grill top 3 times - basically whenever it became charred, so our food wouldn’t burn. Super friendly, amazing service.

A great place for lunch, dinner or just something casual. Good location on West Broadway, easy to get there by bus. Even if you are not meat lover, there are still lots of choice for vegetables.

The food was great and we didn’t wait long to get it. My only concern was the waiter standing by us with the card machine waiting for us to pay as we were STILL cooking our smores/eating our dessert. I found that rude and unprofessional. He didn’t leave even when he saw us in the process of still eating and stood there until we paid. Food was great, waitor was rude. He couldn’t have waited till we finished our food to let us pay. Smh.

We had our anniversary dinner here on Monday December 9th.
They seemed to have no record of our reservation through Open Table, but I showed them my email confirmation and they seated us right away.
The service was fast, efficient and friendly.
The food was fresh and delicious!
We will most definitely be back!

It was a super fun experience! The service could have been better. There were lots of us that were new to the experience and it would have been great if the server explained the menu. It can be overwhelming for first timers.

I booked a table for 4 to book for our team lunch. Our office is across the street, and I wanted to book for 12:45pm, but there was an option for 12:30 or 1pm. We got there at 12:45pm, and they made us wait for another 15 minutes despite there were plenty of tables, and I noticed that they let in walk in customers first. They gave an excuse for the reason, but I forgot what it was.
I ordered a spicy soup lunch special and each of us ordered something different. I was surprised to see the soup was just flavourful water plus less than 5 small pieces vegetable (kimchi?). Flavour was good, but I felt that to pay 1 bowl of rice + few pieces of kimchi plus water/soup was very expensive. I was hoping something better for this. It was our first time, and we would have made this a regular team lunch place but unfortunately my first time experience was disappointing. Will definitely not go back and will not recommend anyone in my company.

Food and service was great but I ruined a great sweater as they had glue on the side of the table.
When I showed it to them they said they were sorry but that is it.
