The only thing i would say that could be better is that it gets hot due to multiple cooking stations so air conditioning should be higher

The place was very noisy, staff yelling a lot, music was intrusive. The waiter forgot one of our dishes...and caused us to almost miss our curtain.

Server was nice enough but after the appetizers arrived, we waited 45 minutes for the meats to come out. We had to ask what happened to our order otherwise, we would've never received it. Same thing happened to our last round of drinks. Had to ask where they were. I would give this location one more try. If service is the same, I'll take my business to the Gyu Kaku on 44th Street.

They have been really consistent with their offerings. This time around though, the addicting cucumbers were very watery and were 50% as good as they generally are plus the miso chicken wings had one less wing (usually they have 5) and were not coated properly at all. Hope this was a minor hiccup and not something that will continue!

They were smaller than I remembered. Prices are higher also overall. It's still a decent value for the money. Although more expensive, I think I will try a Korean grill place next time.

No one ask for refill drinks, no one help to change the grill until you asked. And all the dishes are salty. Maybe holiday too busy

We chose this place because it’s available at 10:15 pm which is the time I made the reservation. Once it passes 9:00pm, I got multiple phone calls and messages asking if we can come early. They also said they close at 10:15 which is now true. I like the food but would NOT recommend if you plan to come here according to your reservation time because the host will change it based on their availability. I give 3/5 stars for the food.
