went with a large family group to reminisce and chow down on some good eats. telling stories worked out great, but the food was of less substance than expected. a nice variety to choose from but the quality wasn't there as before both in meat and kimchi. the servers were helpful and observant and the decor added to the atmosphere. so for $30 per person, I won't be going back. .

This restaurant now only offers All You Cat Eat, either they cook for you and you cook for yourself. There are raw meat and cooked food, quite a lot of selection. However, the cooked food didn't look well, just cooked in a way to fill up people's stomach, didn't care about the quality. Seafood pancake was cold and soggy, same as rice cakes, ... Kimchi had "raw" vegetable taste, because the Kimchi wasn't preserved enough terrible. Bean sprouts was bland, tasteless. Soup were too hot and spicy. The only benefit was the restaurant provided lots of meat.

There were lots of customers for dinner since 6 but the owner didn't turn on the hood fan until 8pm. Everyone was filled with BBQ stinky smell. Customer service was okay, frequently changed the BBQ plate. However, we won't go back again.

I was surprised that 3 different meat types were marinated in the same sauce which was very sweet and overpowering. I preferred the frozen unseasoned pork belly strips. What looked like hot dogs from the grocery store were a meat option. A few other things were weird. I'd suggest having a look at the buffet before paying $31.49 for diner. I did not see quality here.

We took the Gkids here on a Friday night. The mandatory meal here on Fridays and Saturdays is the All You Can Eat Buffet. It is a comprehensive mix of foods that are premade / cooked, as well as many meats and accompaniments that you can yourself on the BBQ at your table.

We had a great evening. the BBQ gave the Gkids something to focus on. They enjoyed the flavours. I gave them a hard tome for eating hot dogs and french fries at a Korean Restaurant, but they simply ignored me.

Have been to this restaurant now twice within a month during travel to Calgary. Both times we had 6 or so people. The good was very good with a variety of items as part of a package. More than enough to eat and all was well prepared and tasty.
