It was a great experience. The prices match the quality of the food. If you are planning to go for a special event I say go for the BBQ menu specials!

Service was great. The Poke Nachos were a treat.
The shrimp and mushroom dish wash very good.
We ordered the BBQ for 2 and there was an abundance of food.
Great experience

My family and I went to celebrate my husband's birthday. We had a 7:00pm reservation and arrived a few minutes early. We were seated promptly around 7:00. The food was up to our expectations, but the service was a little lacking. We had to ask multiple times for refills on drinks and for utensils for my children. I understand that it was Saturday evening dinner rush, but it was still frustrating. While waiting for forks for my children, their plate of food got cold and they were stuck eating cold rice and veggies.

I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes.

Locale molto interessante, molto frequentato. Prenotazione obbligatoria almeno il venerdì sera. BBQ conviviale, prodotti di ottima qualità e quantità abbondante, comprese insalate verdure ecc. Servizio impeccabile e personale gentile. Prezzo corretto per la qualità e la quantità offerta.

Not a fan of the recent menu changes including the phasing out of gochujang. Overall not a bad time but the older packages were better.

Great experience with the family. The only issue is the new points system. They should at least be good for a year or so. It’s not even worth it any more.

The Midtown location is much better than the Time Square location for sure. The meat slices we ordered did not come in slices but mostly in shreds of fat with little attachment of meat and the staff kept coming by our table to turn the stove up to high when I had already adjusted down earlier which caused the meat to get burnt in the end. They didn’t even bother wiping down our table at least a bit before serving our dessert. I will not be returning to this location.

Food service was very quick the food was very tasty and the main course you cook yourself. Would recommend and we would try again we ate quite late due to prior commitments so would definitely take full advantage of time on our next visit

Felt rushed. Reservation time was 9:45, which is also the time for last call. I’ve been here for lunch and they let you relax and take your time. I get it, it’s night time and you want to go home, but if you want to be this way, please adjust your times online. We spent less than 1 hour eating the meat lovers menu and I am not happy about being rushed through my meal, especially when out with friends from out of town.

The restaurant was packed. We had to wait a little bit for our table to be available. The noise was tolerable and glad we were seated at the back. Our server Danny was great though. The food came as they were ready and our bellies were full.

Place could use a deep clean. The menus were sticky and place seemed a little run down. Other than that, it was a good experience. Delicious food and good service.
