I came here on a Saturday night at 7:40 for a table for 2, and there was no wait. This is quite remarkable for Ktown on a Saturday night. This restaurant is very, very spacious, so whether you come in a large group of 20 or small group of 2, whether you intend to do BBQ or just a regular dinner, there will definitely be space!

You can order a la carte, or if you're lazy, just choose a combo. We ordered the #102 BBQ combo for two ($59.95). It included beef, galbi, and chicken as well as a tofu soup of our choice. Additionally, we also decided to get a kimchi pancake ($15.95).

Out of the three meats, my favorite was easily the galbi. It was perfectly marinated and so tender and juicy! The chicken, which I was the least excited about, was surprisingly very well marinated, juicy, and tender as well. The restaurant will provide you with lettuce, rice cake wrap, radish, seasoned veggies, and sauces to wrap the meat in. You can of course add any of the items from the banchan, like the mushrooms or kimchi, into your wrap as well.

The extra spicy tofu soup on the other hand was actually REALLY spicy. Thank god for the side of rice to keep me alive.

On the recommendation of a friend, I visited this place. Slightly hidden away, you enter the inconspicuous building and go to the second floor, don't be put off, it's well worth it. The food is great and fantastic value for money, attracting a diverse crowd from solo diners to groups of people out socialising. Put it on your to do list!

This is my favorite comfort food spot.  The SoonDuBu and Kai Bi combo is the best stew / beef combo in the city!!
