I think they opened a month or so ago and I've been dying to try some authentic Korean BBQ and I figured since it's so close to home I would try it there. I just want to make sure it's good and worth the money. Knowing there is a ton of foodies here in MA I am sure someone has eaten there that can provide an honest review for people interested, so, if you've eaten there please chime in with your experience, what you ordered and if it was worth the money or not.

It's expensive for being in the north shore ($46 for one person before a tip, $15 for one bottle of soju...This isnt downtown Boston but the prices say so), the food is ok to mediocre (bbq is ok but I dont like their grills, food like tteokbokki is mediocre), unimaginably unorganized (seating is a mess, not enough employees, no website...I hope just because they're newly opened).

Not worth the drive up if you're in the city but if you live close it may be worth your time to save the drive into Boston/Cambridge for k-bbq.

damn, that is expensive. is there a better spot somewhere in Boston? I mean I live in Malden, so Boston is 10 mins away and that place is also 10 mins away in the opposite direction.

It's comparable to Sura, which I have great disdain for yet still go every now and then (even though I order in Korean with the old lady they never bring my baby octopuses or gopchang until I order it like 5 times...)

There's no great ayce option, sadly. Naksan and Gopchang Story in Allston are good but way too expensive for the portions.

Damn, ok. Thanks for answering. I'm not ready to plunk down 46$ for a shitty experience I'll wait till they mature and hopefully get more help to see if the experience is better.

Bab Bistro or Emone in malden might tide you over for general korean food

i really wanted to try the AYCE Korean bbq experience by grilling your own meat at the table and what not as I've never done it before. The closest I've had to that is Hotpot at the Sq1 Mall Tokyo.

Have you tried the place in Burlington ever?

Food is good, albeit overpriced. Service is absolutely horrible. Rude as hell until my wife joined me. Would go just for the food since I shop in the area now and then, but God the service is trash.

Thanks - always read mixed reviews. I can deal with bad service if I know going in as long as the food is good. Overpriced will just make it a treat!
