Amazing food, great experience, and fantastic customer service. Staff were so pleasant and the Wagyu... Oh the Wagyu... so good! Can't wait for the opportunity to go back, already recommending this place to others
Never fails - always consistent. Highly recommend, not just for the beef but sides and other dishes like bimbimbap always hit the spot. Will be returning again.
