This place is quite good. We're fond of K BBQ and the quality of the meats and banchan is excellent. Adequate portions with Rich flavors. Good service and clean premises. We'll be back.

Came here to try their famous bulgogi, the portion was HUGE, and the four of us were so stuffed. We got the bulgolgi, bibimbap, and kimchi jigae. The flavors for all the dishes didn’t really stand out for me. The bulgolgi was an interesting experience for sure—I like that underneath that mountain of meat they do include veggies such as spinach and mushrooms. I thought the flavors were generally pretty mild, and would have liked a better spread of banchan side dishes (there wasn’t any kimchi…).

This place is still fantastic! Great KBBQ with quality meats, unique and tasty side dishes and attentive service! This is where you go when you're over the ayce places, and want to step it up.

Ever try kbbq with wasabi or homemade seafood sauce? It all goes down here!

The meats are well marbled and they cook it properly for you. I recommend their premium combo which comes with their signature seng bugogi which is prepared over a Mongolian style grill with broth. Highly recommended!

Well located in the hustle and bustle of Ktown at 9th & Vermont in a small strip center. This little gem always delivers so bring your appetite. I usually order the Combo B since it covers the beef pork spectrum of premium meats: Prime Brisket, Skirt, Ribeye, Pork Belly and Ribeye Bulgogi and then add Kimchi Frie Rice (exceptional) and Seafood Pancake. Any of the Combos with a variety of side dishes should be sufficient for a party of four. The food is great and your server cooks for you.

This restaurant was suggested by a local acquaintance because of the excellent cuisine and the fact that it was not as heavy as an all-you-can-eat buffet for a pre-flight dinner (completely incorrect!!). So suffocatingly full. We divided the combination b & beef tongue amongst four of us. B was a ridiculous lot of food. We finished with bulgogi, which was a touch dry, but I assume that was due to the fact that we were all exhausted from the previous portion of the meal. However, I am unable to remark on price because I have a poor memory and our host received the bill before we could react! The server was quite helpful.

Have you been to this restaurant yet? I can confidently recommend that the quality of the meat here is the best in LA. The side dishes served separately here are also delicious. It is also run by the owners of LA's very famous 'Yanmani'. These two top food spots in LA are a must-visit.

This place used to be good but not anymore. Under the new ownership/management, there has been a significant changes. They reduce the number of side dishes that usually comes with Korean cuisines. And then the quality of beef/pork they offer has drastically decreased from the last time I was there. Remember I went here hungry. And today also they ran out of one of the side dishes that I always enjoyed. ironically today they dropped an empty dish on a soup bowl creating a splash to everyone face on the table.
Total charge of the meal was around $150. I thought $20 tip for this check was pretty decent considering the quality of service and the food that I wasn’t so satisfied with. However this one guy came back to my table asking for at least 15% of the tip in front of everyone at the table. I’m not sure what makes him so confident asking for certain percentage of the service fee while the quality of the food and the quality of service has changed so bad I want to take my time and write a review here.
I truly hope that the old owner comes back so that I can go back here

Apparently, certain lower price items on the menu cannot be ordered unless the restaurant is empty as they will favor traditional Koreans who somehow understand their unspoken rule that it's required to buy high priced meats that cost hundred dollars or so, which would be fine IF that was clarified on the menu. When I asked why that wasn't written on the menu, they said it's just understood by most of their Korean patrons. So, non-Koreans aren't welcome? They said the owner doesn't care as they serve Koreans who get it. Don't put items on the menu you don't want to serve or specify dates/times those items can be ordered. Don't make non-Korean customers feel unwelcomed just because we do not order the most expensive items on the menu. If you and your party are not old school traditional Korean(s) who somehow understand these unspoken rules, I would avoid this place unless you're willing to spend a couple hundred dollars as most meat orders require 2 or more. What will they think of next, only serving those who spend the most amount per dining in? Order the most expensive and you'll may get a table.

Cost: Fair

Service was non existent. The times our table asked for something, there were no replies. Only after we kept asking, they would just look at us and nod.

We came here because we were in LA and had been to the Rowland heights location multiple times. Definitely more of a kbbq vibe instead of a traditional Korean restaurant vibe and a slightly different menu. However the signature dish remained the same.
