If you like Korean BBQ, then Manna is the place for you. It's got a huge selection and the quality of the meat is pretty decent. The sides are OK... not too much selection, but overall the experience was tasty, fun and decent value for the $$.

A friend of mine that lives in the area told me I HAD to come try this with her. I happily agreed and we were off. We timed it terribly, as we arrived around 1215ish on a Saturday. Still, we were seated very quickly and able to get our order in. Every type of protein we ordered was wonderfully seasoned.... More

This restaurant caters to the persons with large appetite. The menu is all you can eat, but the waiters will bring out your meat selection, and you can only order 3 types at a time to prevent waste. The quality of the meats are fresh and delicious. The Side dishes (ban Chan) are equally good and filling. The price for... More

I forgot to review this restaurant. Probably because it was not too memorable. My friends were raving about how good this place was. Some of my friends and I got together to check it out ourselves. As soon as you walk in, you smell food cooking and smoke. We were greeted by a waitress that sat us down in a... More

Great family-like cook at your table BBQ. Lot of food if you go for the AYCE option. Nice to have the half-dish option when you try something new and not sure if you like it (they charge extra if you waste food... Which is the right approach to control cost.) Will come back. Make reservation b/c the wait will be... More
