Your best value is getting the food bar. They have selections of about 5 different meats in different marinades to bring back to your table and grill. They also have fruit, kimchee, daikan slaw, and pot stickersl. This is a really fun date night, just remember that it does get a bit smokey in there because you are grilling at your table.

This was our first visit to a Korean BBQ and we enjoyed it very much. We loved the spicy chicken thighs, pork and beef bulgogi. The veggies on the buffet were fresh and also fun to grill. Believe the reviews when they talk about the smell. It is potent! Our hotel room smelled like campfire until we washed the clothes. It was delicious and worth the $24.99 per person price.

They have 2 pricings for the All You Can Eat. $24.99 for the first 8 kinds and $29.99 for 14 kinds of different types of meat. I think the $24.99 is sufficient unless you want to eat Beef Tongue. They have the side dishes at a salad bar type. Looked a little lonely because the containers weren't full. Looked like they served leftovers. Place was small but food was a little better than ok. I don't think the $29.99 each that we paid for a family of 3 was worth the it. It was a good first, but not sure if I'd come back. Your clothes will smell. The rating for SERVICE is 5 stars though!!! People were so efficient and fast to clean and take plates off your table so you have room.

Loved the Korean BBQ and the buffet that came with the all you can eat choice. You get to cook your marinated meat on a coal brazier in the middle of your table. You waste you pay policy which is good. Very tasty Korean food and good value for money.

Make sure you ask for the short ribs as it is not on the buffet counter. Be prepared to change clothes afterward. Our bill was about 56 dollars for two people without any drinks. We had only water.
