    The lunch set for 2 was good tasting and valued appropriately. The beef dishes were well seasoned and flavorful, but the pork and chicken were average in all aspects. Very nice and friendly staff. Surprisingly fun to use the cooking grill but I found my face hot at times. Parking was only a 1.00 at De Lacy's Parking Structure half a block away after validation.

    We made reservations for 6 yet they squeezed us into a small 4 person area. We had a baby in a car seat as well and it made for a very tight squeeze. The table had a separated to another grill and we asked if they can remove it and we use both areas, we were told no. That area was never used the entire time we ate and the restaurant was empty. As a long time customer I expected my friends to have a better first experience. Unfortunately due to staffing issues many of the employees are very young, inexperienced and new, which is understandable, however common sense goes a long way. Other than that the food was as expected and our waiter was nice and attentive.

    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.

    Waited 10 minutes for our table when we had a reservation. Nobody updated us on a timeframe and nobody was apologetic for the wait. That was somewhat annoying. Servers were very friendly.
