    Loved it SO much! My kids loved it too. I got this beef bimbap with rice, and the marbled beef to cook. The kids got chicken teriyaki. They could have eaten way more than the 2 servings I got for them each. Our server had a lot of tables and was really great. The noise level was loud! We will return, totally loved it.

    We arrived to find the air conditioning had gone out. It was very hot in the restaurant but they did offer free fountain drinks to compensate. We were celebrating a birthday so didn't have the option to go to another restaurant or dine on a different date. Food was exceptional, we ate much more than necessary and loved every bite!

    It was our first to there. The ambiance was very nice , however, they had a few items that were ran out or not available to order from the Dine LA menu which was a bit disappointing but the food was very tasty.

    Environment and services are good. But food quality is Awful. Nothing like the gyu-khaki I ate in Asia. Ordered 4 people course meals and was served with ACYE meat quality. The only good meat is beef tongue that was ordered from ala cart. Would not recommend to anyone or return.

    I didn’t really care for the food. The meats were very fatty with tendons running through the beef. I didn’t think it was a good value, and wouldn’t return. The appetizers were very average. The server was attentive and friendly. The restaurant was clean and the staff was friendly and helpful.

    I ordered from the Spring Menu. I was so shocked what the waiter brought me. I rejected and told the waiter the dish doesn’t look like what on the menu. I ordered the chicken garlic noodles instead. The rest of my experience were fine.

    We were running a few minutes late and called them to let them know. The person on the phone was quite rude with an attitude saying that the grace period was only 10 minutes while on OpenTable it says 15. Luckily when we came, the hostess seated us right away and the waiter was amazing. The food was all high quality and very good. Mondays are all day happy hour! Overall I’d come back for the food and service
