My son and I were looking for Korean food in Oakland and decided on Bowl'd BBQ. We ordered Bi Bim Bap for two in hot stone bowls. All the small bowls of additions were DELISH! Highly recommend!

We shared a kimchi pancake, beef bim bap and the fried chicken with two sauces - spicy and sweet BBQ. Bim bap was great - lots of the crispy rice on the stone bowl. Buchan were plentiful and tasty but do not come complimentary. you need to upgrade to a 'combo' to get them. I've never experienced this and visit Koreatown often at home in Toronto. But OMG the chicken. Huge portion. We took some home. I preferred spicy to the BBQ but the bottom pieces in bottom of bowl with a mix of both - other worldly!

This place does a selection of excellent, authentic Korean dishes served with a substantial array of typical sides such as kimchee, seaweed, fish cakes, noodles etc. The food is really good and it's not bad value. Definitely recommended.

We were four adults - had a stone bowl with pork, spicy seafood soup, kimbchi pancake, calamari and one other thing. The Stone Bowl was superb--those crunchy rice bits were terrific! We got there right when it opened and it was pretty cold inside and smelled overwhelmingly like bleach. We ordered barley tea to warm up but it took awhile to arrive. Our fave dish was the stone bowl - kimchi doesn't do all that well in a pancake--the calamari was definitely octopus - thick legs and not a ring to be seen - we wished the batter was a bit more delicate and less thick.
