Came here with a few friends to try the all-you-can-eat Korean BBQ. It was not too packed or anything, and the service was decent. The food was ok, some meats were definitely better than others... All in all, it was a fun experience, but it did not blow my mind or anything. I would probably return here.

I usually could not care less about service, just as long as the food is good. Here the food was ok. Nothing to write home about, but not awful. Some things - like the daikon and seaweed salads, were too sweet. Meat for the BBQ wasn't bad, though keep in mind that lettuce that it's traditionally wrapped in was not... More

We were 13 for lunch and were concerned that there was just a single server for the entire restaurant during a busy Friday lunch. She took our orders promptly and we got our food very quickly, despite the large number of options on the menu. The tables have cook stations and the restaurant offers a number of meal options that... More

This is my favourite Korean restaurant in Ottawa of the three or four I've tried in the downtown core. I love the three-meat barbecue thing, and love the side dishes — especially the potato pancake. The meat (you cook your own barbecue) is really flavourful, and the side dishes are plentiful. It's not worth doing this on your own, but... More

The missus had a craving for Korean food and as this place was recommended by a colleague, we decided to check it out. Arriving at just before 6pm on a Friday night, the place was pretty quiet though by 6:30, tables were starting to fill up so I think depending on the night, reservations may be recommended. (By the time... More

Great variety of Korean and Japanese dishes on the menu. Had the tempura lunch box, which was filling and not too crazy expensive. Staff was busy with all the lunchtime customers but were pleasant and efficient.

Kimchi, LA Galby ribs, Bulgogi and the 30 piece sashimi is what we usually order. You have to ask separately for the ssamjang paste and the lettuce leafs for the bulgogi, but the flavor is quite good. We always enjoy it. Ask for refill of the kimchi if needed.

I love this place. We've been here for both lunch and dinner. While at dinner they offer a few more items (California roll, salmon sushi, jap chae (glass noodles), and bibimbap. You can't go wrong with either. The meats aren't the highest quality but are still very good (the kimchi is amazing). The service here depends on when you go.... More
