Cuisines: Korean

I actually went to 8 Korean in LA but that place isn't on Trip Advisor. Great fun place to go for dinner. It's particularly good if you're a larger group because the food is meant to be shared and the ambience lends itself to a fun, casual dinner. We did the 8 flavors which is their signature item. It was good. Definitely interesting. Nothing too great flavor wise but I'd definitely recommend it and would go back. They also give you a seafood soup with the meal and at the end, they finish off the leftovers by preparing a delicious kimchi rice.

Came in as a party of three, and none of us new what the expect. The food tasted great, and the staff was very helpful. I'm not sure they gave all their guests the level of service they gave us, but it was clear we were unfamiliar with the process and they walked us through what to do.

Korean BBQ sounded good on a Sunday and I'd been wanting to try Eight for quite sometime. They also have a location in Los Angeles but this location is in nearby Buena Park and convenient from home so I can arrive by taking streets access. Parking was easily accessible since there's a private parking lot shared by businesses at this strip center.

We ordered the Eight varieties of marinated pork. I like the fact that the waitresses prepares all the BBQ for the guest, cuts and served pieces to everyone. The quality of meats that were marinated had excellent flavor and the cuts were lean. The radish and noodle skins were thin and light and the seafood stew and the Kim Chee fried rice were also yummy. For the price of 8 varieties of pork, banchan, seafood stew and fried rice the price was reasonable. The service here was friendly and solid by all the waitresses.

I'll be returning here again. BTW pay with cash and save 8% on your tab.
