The Zagat Review
You can “taste the difference” in the “top-notch” meats at this K-town “winner” from a South Korea–based chain, where the “elevated” BBQ is grilled tableside by “efficient” servers; since it’s “so crazy popular” , be ready for “crowded” conditions and a “wait time.”

Food was good. Getting a table isn't too hard, I got one within 45 minutes just walking up to the door. I'm generally not a fan of people cooking at the table, but since this was just cooking and not an elaborate show like Hibachi grills, I didn't mind. The waiter just shows up every few minutes to start the next batch of meat samples. Good assortment of sides included in the meal. Really good set of flavors for the various meats, but it honestly feels a bit overpriced for the amount of food given. But I guess we're paying for the whole cook-at-the-table thing too. I'd recommend it. It's good,

OMG the best Korean BBQ I've ever had! Food quality is excellent and staff very friendly. As usual, they will bring the food and different to other Korean places (those I've been to, although they were in London and not NYC) they will cook the meat for you. The beef is AWESOME and better than in other steak houses I have been before. The menu is quite extensive. Try to get a group menu for 3+ people otherwise it can be expensive. Good selection of beers too. Very friendly staff and the place is very well located in Midtown. You only can book for groups (4+ people if memory serves) so if going on your own or 1-2 friends try to go before 7 pm. It gets very crowded otherwise and may have to wait an hour to be seated, which is a lot in winter! Oh typing this made me feel hungry! Recommended.

I came here during lunch hrs on a weekend because it just open so it was not as crowded which was good for me. When I was saw on the table, they had all the side dishes, eggs and ready for us. The service was so amazing, they cooked the meat, even cut the meat and asked us how we liked the meat. I ordered the marinated short ribs, and the way they cooked the short ribs just melted in your mouth and it was absolutely delicious. The service was great throughout the meal time. I also got vegetables pancakes and it's nothing like the one in Boston and it was crispy on the outside and chewy in the side. The portions of pancakes can serves up to more than 3 people and just come here with empty stomach and you sure to leave full in your stomach.
