After parking on the street we saw that Dong Bang has valet parking. Nice, but unnecessary. They don't take reservations for less than 6. The wait wasn't long and the manager made every effort to seat our 5 people at a large enough table. Admirable. Only took 10 minutes. We had three kids, one a picky eater. The server was... More

Found this place in a magazine called DiningOut. And have been going here pretty regularly since. I wish my phone battery wasn't almost dead otherwise I would have taken some nice pictures of my delicious food. The quality of their galbi (or kalbi) is top. It is always tender and succulent. The banchan is one of the best in the... More

I always enjoy eating at Ding Bang Grill. The food is always fresh and delicious. I am always trying something new there for the first time because I trust the quality. The only negative is that often I find that the ventilation system used for the barbecue does not function well and you end up with a lot of smoke... More

I gave 3 stars because of the poor ventilation. Otherwise this is at least 4 star eatery. It looks that almost all the tables are equipped with built in gas grill in the table for the grilled BBQ, but the poor ventilation makes the restaurant smoke filled place. I don"t know if it violates the fire code of Fort Lee... More

Dong Bang Grill is probably the best korean bbq in the tristate area I tried.... With Baekjeong in Flushing being second.... However, it is a little bit pricey though.

Always enjoy table cooking with great ingredients. Friendly efficient service. A repeated pleasure for years. Pretty sure many of the customers we see arrive en mass following funerals across the street

We love bulgogi -- grilled marinated beef! It is served with a large assortment of condiments, vegetables, spicy kimchee, rice, and is eaten rolled in a romaine leaf. Kids enjoy eating with their hands...as do we! Tasty and fun. Service is quick. Reservations are only accepted for parties of 6+. Make sure you arrive early, the place is always busy.

Thank Henri C
