Lovey lady boss , Lena who speaks fluent English who guided us through the order. We ordered a wagyu beef / marinated pork plate , bean paste soup and steam eggs. We loved the meats, non marinated beef was juicy and the marinated tasty pork...was a good balance to the meats. Bean paste soup was a good start for cold weather here in April. Total meal was at 50000 won. Great value for a filling bbq dinner . It would have cost us double back in Singapore !More

This place was absolutely amazing. The service was great, the staff were so friendly and helpful. It is ran by a Korean couple who both speak English so if you are worried about have a language barrier that won’t be an issue here. They are...more than open to explaining how to grill the meats properly. The meat were marinated to perfection and delicious each time I attended the restaurant. I came here three times on my trip to Korea since I loved it so so so much. I am definitely coming back on my next trip as it was delicious, convenient, and welcoming. Also, it is right next to Hongdae right off station 2 so it’s super easy to get to :)More

Popped by this restaurant for dinner on a particularly cold April night as it was near our hotel and was warmly welcomed by the nice lady who works here. She spoke good English and was very friendly, recommending the meats to have and the perfect...beer+soju combination to go with the meats. Ordered 5 different meats to share and a steamed egg and every one of them was delicious - the lady came by frequently to check on us and to also help with the grilling. The place was clean and the banchan were yummy. Definitely worth a visit if around Hongdae!More

I’m an American, former military. I’ve been to Busan and all over Japan as well as Hawaii, and almost every major city stateside. If you’re looking for absolutely delicious and quality meat, this is the place to go. The steamed egg was beautiful, the side...dishes delicious and like I said, the meat was fantastic. I’m here for a month and I’ll be back many times!More

+ They serve delicious cuts of both pork and beef! (some places only have either one) +The staff will help you out if you are a newbie. + Very good banchans and sauces to go along with the meat. Although they did not serve us...any kimchi which would have been nice. + Its all on genuine glowing hot charcoal. + Good price quality ratio!More
