Loved this place! Food was delicious, I had the brisket and tongue, as well as the kimchi. Everything was delicious, and I wished I could buy the kimchi by the barrel, it was that good! The staff were super nice and helpful, the lady who helped me spoke perfect English and was very kind, gave me great recommendations, tips, and helped cook the meats for me to perfection


Thank you to our exceptional English-speaking server for making our experience so enjoyable. Delicious cuts of meat and offal are served, ready to be cooked over a charcoal grill. We were seated at the counter and watched as staff professionally prepared and seasoned different types of meat and offal. Fantastic service, fresh and well-prepared food and great prices. Highly recommended.


I must say I was blown away by this yakiniku experience. The sweet kimchi was a perfect match for my taste buds. The hormone meats were large and so fatty. It's fat melt in my mouth and made me feel like at ease as if I was soaking in a hot spring! The tongue was also a highlight for me, with a chewy and juicy texture that left me feeling a true carnivore - yum yum yum…
It wasn't only the quality of the foods that impressed me, but the friendly and approachable staff made the memorable dining experience. Sitting at the counter, I was able to watch as the meat was exactly cut and cooked right in front of me. I was amazed by how the staff was handling the meat knife like crazy.
The staff also attentive without being intrusive, and advise me on the best time to enjoy each dish. And best part? - it was all reasonably priced!
Overall, I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a great yakiniku experience. Thanks to my friend for inviting me, and big thanks to this restaurant and their delicious, charcoal-grilled meats!
