Genwa Korean BBQ Reviews

We were recommended this place by many LA/Cali residents, they told us that although it was a bit more expensive, it was "the best of the best". I can't agree with them. Because we were visiting LA we chose to do Galbi which is supposed to be very good in LA. We also ordered samgyopsal which is a hit or miss in some places but we were in the mood for pork. Serving size was fine Both servings of meat were burned bc the flames were so high and the staff was not around to watch it. They were so overwhelmed with clients and other duties that the bus boy was the one who came over to turn off our gas grill. I did enjoy trying out the plethora of side dishes as I've never received so many sides at any other establishment, its fun to try new things. But this place did not deliver. Hopefully they can sort out the staffing issues without having to increase their menu prices but I will not be returning if I am in LA again. The price does not match the quality, atmosphere, or experience. I recommend Daedo Sikdang instead.

Expensive but the good was good.

We had the combo C which could get 3-4 people. I think the meat wishlist was good but it is expensive. Including good for the six of us, it was $330.

Hands down one of the best Korean BBQ! I love how their fan sucks the smoke in even before it rises so you don't leave smelling like cooked meat!

One of the best Korean BBQ spots in LA.

The ingredients here are top-notch and the seasoning is on point. Course A was more than enough food for two people, but we still ordered an extra order of galbijjim. Without a doubt, the best galbijjim we've had. Extremely tender and seasoned well. Even the person with orthodontics could chew it without issue.

About the only downside is that you really gotta plan your banchan properly. They've got a great variety of veggies, but since they're all fermented with salt, it feels like you're giving yourself hypertension halfway through a meal if you're not eating them in the right order. Definitely drink water or maybe order a sweet cocktail to offset the salt.

The quality of the food was really amazing, and it was 100% authentic Korean.
It was quite pricey but it was definitely worth it.
Servers were quick, very polite, professionals.
Interiors were just ok.
There is free guarded parking right next to the restaurant.

High quality food and high quality service is Genwa KBBQ forte. That being said, there is a high price to pay.

The wife and I decided on course A: serves 2 people and includes house salad, japchae (glass noodles), one galbi (marinated Short rib), and choice of a second meat (Various choices), we chose chicken bulgogi, a sizzling bimbimbap plate and sundubu. All for $105. We also got a separate bottle of Nigori sake (small 375 ml $19).

For me, the biggest hit was the bimbimbap. Excellent crispy rice on the bottom of the platter with great flavors. My only disappointment was the singular short rib. For $105, i thought at least 2 short ribs plus another meat would be more beneficial for a two person entree, but we are in LA.

Anyhow, inside the place is pretty big with PLENTY of tables, service is spot on. Could be family friendly, but barely enough room for strollers and parking isn't good (again we're in LA) adjacent to the joint is a parking garage, but the attendant was not letting us park there for some reason or another so we ended up parking across the street.

Genwa is a good place to eat and chill, but I'm not a 1%er so this would be spot to getting only if I'm in the area. Happy eats!

Food here was good and this was our first time so we got a bit confused with the menu. Overall the meats we had were good and in big portion.

First time in California and first time trying Korean BBQ and I made the best restaurant choice! The servers made it so easy to understand the menu and they cook the food right in front of you! The pork belly is perfect. I was very impressed. Will definitely make a stop here my next visit!

It was one of the best Korean restaurants I’ve ever been to. Felt like a fancy restaurant. The servers cook you kbbq. The side dishes were pretty cool, well portioned and interesting to try different ones. I’m from Korea and felt the food was authentic. I ordered the combo A (served 2 people) which comes with kbbq, tofu soup, bibimbap and japchae. Everything was amazing. I’m only visiting LA but I wish to dine here next time I come to LA.
