One of the best grill places I have been to in Korea. Service was phenomenal. Restaurant is clearly very popular among locals and was packed to the brim on the weekend. Staff are friendly and helpful. But most of all, the pork was amazing. Succulent...and juicy down to the last bite, even if left on the grill for extended periods of time. Not sure how they did it. Relatively inexpensive as each person can eat their full for around 30000 won. Recommended.More

Eaten at various bbq pork restaurants in Korea ! This is the best we have eaten in Korea for 2 reasons - the taste and the portions ! The bbq pork jowl and belly was great and had the correct texture and spices . It...literally blended well when cooked and tasted great when eaten with the accompanying condiments . It was very reasonable priced at 9000won per 100g. We needed to order 300g but for a party of 2, it was sufficient . We also ordered kimchi soup which accompanied the food very well together with a good wash down of Cass beef and soju - it was a dream meal . If we ever return to Busan, will visit this place again without question !More

After you've registered yourself in queuing machien and waited for about 20 minutes, you'll get seated in Matchandeul noisy restaurant (crowd + music). Service appears nice, efficient and lightly speaking English but I truly didn't understand why is that place so famous. Certainly, pork meat...they serve is good (no beef in here) but was not amazing at any point. Would not recommend as a "worth the trip" place.More

Delicious Korean bbq cuisine located in the seomyeon area. There is a small waiting area while waiting. Good automated queuing system to make walk in reservation. The service was good and food were served fast with the table staff well trained to cook for us....The cut of pork were pork collar and pork belly. The meat were lightly season with salt and taste great. However, be prepared to order for three serving of meat for your first order. We also ordered claypot rice and the kimchi soup.More

This restaurant was just right behind our Hotel and it was always crowded during dinner hour. You need to key in your name into the QMS system when you arrive to the restaurant, then you just wait for your turn. We went there during weekdays...and waited about 15 minutes. There are minimum order of 3 selection of meat BBQ. It will just nice for two person without ordering other food from the menu. Their waiter will help you to cook the pork while you can unlimited refill the vegetables which were used to wrap the meat. Pork is juicy and tasted great with the vege.More

We were staying nearby and the staff there recommended this place. We went late so it wasn't full. You can choose what type of meat you want and they cook it for you in the table's BBQ (the first time). Then, they keep bringing a...lot of stuff like kimchi, rice, beans, etc but you don't know if you have to mix it, cook it or eat it. So, we tried our best, eat a lot but left a lot of food.More

It was ok, but we recommend going across the street to "Baa Lamb", they serve lamb/beef that is juicy, tasteful and resonably priced! Also no cues!

We were attracted to this place because of the ambience inside and the crowd. Queue was long but it was our turn within 30 mins (seats available) as the restaurant is big. As with several other similar bbq restaurants we have been to, the staff...will do the bbq at your table so you just eat. One lacking thing here is they only serve two cuts of pork (no other meat). So it gets boring soon for me.More

During my stay in Busan, my hotel is super near this restaurant. We always see it packed with people and lots of people waiting to be seated. We didn’t know what kind of food was served but we were curious to try since it’s always...packed with people. Today we went there super early and managed to get a table. The pork had a gamey pork taste unlike Wangjibib in Myeondong which didn’t have that taste at all. So, I don’t understand why it’s so famous among the locals. This is a pass for me.More

Great and worth trying. Good for 4 or more because they have a minimum first order of 3 portions at 10000 per portion. Go for the traditional rice in stone pot too. Be early if you would like to avoid long queue as the queue...may gets abit crazy at times. Overall, do drop by this place if u plan to visit busan one day.More

I had this restaurant flagged while I was researching restaurants before my actual visit to Busan. It turns out that it was also recommended by the hotel where I was staying. I usually approach these kind of recommendations with apprehension, but that all dissipated when...we walked up to find a line of people every night. The setup is fast and furious with the staff turning over tables very quickly. The restaurant itself is slightly rustic in a way and very comfortable with the exterior windows opening up to let in the cool breezes and ventilate. The banchan was excellent. Not really the typical kinds you find in other restaurants. It felt like some classic versions with a modern twist. Very fresh and crisp greens as well. The pork was excellent with the restaurant offering four different cuts. Unfortunately, they ran out of some of the tender and unusual cuts, but we were happy to order the fresh pork belly. Didn't smell or taste gamey and had great ratio of fat with meat. The staff grills, cuts, and prepares the pork while you watch. The restaurant requires that you order three of the same cut for your first order. So for a part of two we ordered (3) servings of the fresh pork belly, Korean miso soup, hot pot rice for two, a bottle of soju, and a bottle of beer for a total of ₩45,000. Money well spent. If you go with a party of two or three, it won't cost you much more. Great value and taste. Had to be one of the best pork barbecue restaurants that I've been to in a long time. Highly recommended.More

Many people waited and keeping patience at the entrance seats. The best is to order pork belly, it's really yummy. But you have to order at least 3 set at the first time. If you're alone, you have to consider your appetite. The atmosphere was...very warm and the waiter helped the pan frying and making the best quality. What you needed, just to open your mouth.More

Our concierge recommended this restaurant to us and it did not disappoint. Beware the long lines on the weekend, so go early. We waited 45 min for a party of 4. Also, they only serve pork, so if you're looking for beef or more variety,...this isn't the best spot.More
