The pros: Our server was really great.
Cons: The food quality for what you pay for is poor. The sauce on the rice dishes is too sweet. Unfortunately, we will not be returning to this restaurant.

Great food. I enjoyed the selection. However, the service is a bit lacking. Maybe an off day so I'll definitely go again.

My guest and I have been to this establishment several times over but in this instance service was a nightmare. Our server was attentive to everyone else’s needs except ours we felt extremely overlooked and by this point I was annoyed and upset for the lack of service we received.

Some items like beef tongue were clearly going bad. Color was greasy black instead of red. Very disappointing

Originally sat us next to a loud party, but happily accommodated us to a quieter space on request. We enjoyed the rest of the evening a lot! Great service.

We came for the “Ultimate All You Can Eat” special. I definitely would not recommend it as they try to limit you on what you can order, which meant we didn’t even order food worth the amount that we paid for if it were a la carte. It was also extremely disappointing that they did not have half of the dessert options that were listed.

Fun table side grilling. Small portions with very reasonable pricing — great for sampling a range of flavors. Yummy but a bit greasy (much greasier than typical Korean tabletop grilling). Quite enjoyable overall.

Outstanding dining experience. Food was fresh and delicious and it came out right away. Our waiter was very patient with us and explained everything we had questions about. The bartender also knows what she’s doing. We will be coming back again!

More of a Benihana vibe than I was expecting for West Loop. Service was spotty and rushed. Food was okay, but for the price, we left disappointed.

They sat a table directly next to is while there were open seats everywhere. Everything has crumbs on it and looked like the dishes had been used. Our water looked like dish water. Server was cool
