Number in our party: 3 (Sarah is the guest critic today!)
Final check amount: $47.99


  • Sarah liked the mussels, and the skirt steak was delicious.
  • It does not come with endless rice, which we now expect from eating at Korean BBQ restaurants.
  • The salmon tasted too fishy.
  • The marinated meat was chewy.
  • It would have been helpful if the vegetables had been par-cooked.  They took forever till they were done.
  • It was frustrating compared to other BBQ experiences — there was just so much hungry waiting involved!  Gah!
