“Yummy Korean BBQ!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2011

Ate here last night with my husband and 3 kids. First time having Korean BBQ and quite frankly my husband and I can't stop thinking about how yummy it was! Decided against the cooking on the table as our 2 year old daughter would have had her fingers all over it. Ordered the BBQ ribs and chicken anyway, a noodle dish and dragon roll. Everything was delicious! Love the side dishes they brought out first, the kids loved trying a bit of everything. The decor is nothing particularly special but the food is good and we thought the bill was reasonable. Definitely worth a try..will be back on our next trip to NYC!

“Good Korean & ok Japanese cuisine”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2011

A good find in New York. A little pricey but this is New York afterall. The free appetizers and post meal yogurt sorbet make the overall meal price ok value for money. Interesting decor and attentive staff.
