Large portions of high quality food, extremely helpful service, great fun to cook yourself at the table – We tried this restaurant on the spur of the moment and were extremely with our decision. We were starving and couldn't decide between Japanese and Korean. We made a outstanding decision.
The menu was difficult but the waitress was extremely helpful in guiding us. The order came quickly, and the food was bountiful. The meats were top quality, freshly cut, and the sauces delicious.
We tried the potstickers (vegetable), the dumpling soup (wonderful), the rib eye and short rib dinners that we prepared on the hibatchi table. The ginger sauce was outstanding, as was the kimchee and several other condiments; the dumpling soup shouldn't be missed.
The waitress was adorable and showed us how to prepare the meats and instructed us on the condiments. She kept our glasses filled, and came by the table frequently to make sure we were doing ok.
We ate too much, brought home a lot, and will go back very soon. Next time we will order less. You could probably share a dinner comfortably with an appetizer.
The price is reasonable for the amount of food you get.
Poor Customer Service! – The customer service at this restaurant was LACKING (big time). They weren't attentive at all - you need to hunt down your waitress if you need something. The food was OK, but not worth the drive (coming from
Tigard). It was overpriced for having to cook your own food - might as well stay home and do this.
Great food, great service! – I'm half Korean and have been eating Korean food all my life and have also spent alot of time in Korea and was pleasantly surprised with how good the food was at Toji's. I dragged my boyfriend here so I could have my Korean food fix, he's never eaten Korean food so he was very skeptical but he left very full and happy. He really enjoyed all the meats and even enjoyed trying all the side dishes. The kimchee was better than most places I've tried, but nothing is better than homemade. We will definately be back for more!
All the fun of cooking, but no clean-up! – Grilling your own food is fun, and at Toji, the meat is excellent, but what really makes it great is the delicious dipping sauce, so good! Korean food is good and Toji gets it 100% right. I love the 11 different kinds of pickles that come with the grill-meat. Try the hot stone bibimbop (a fried rice dish w/ seasoned ground beef, egg, and yummy korean veggies), but let the rice get nice and crispy before you mix it up.
Good Food, Small Portions – We came here with a big group and had to order a lot of plates as the amount of food served compared to most other Korean restaurants wasn't enough. The food was good, but I would rather go to one of the Beaverton Korean restaurants or the one on Powell for a better value and just as good of food.
Great service, food – I highly recommend repeated visits to this restaurant. The staff were extremely polite, quick, and informative. The food was absolutely incredible. A great place to dine as a couple and even better with a group of friends.
Fantastic! – Having dined at more than enough of Korean restaurants from Portland to Seattle to Vancouver BC, Toji totally up'ed my standards for authentic Korean food. A Korean friend once explained the importance of how appetizers are the trademarks of a restaurant, and how it dictates their success, and, being at Toji, I am sure the owners here nailed it. Carefully prepared dishes, warm service, spacious environment and the absence of BBQ fume.
very good, deserves more business – Lovely setting, great, attentive service. Quality dishes and a grill at every table with a staff willing to help in every way so you don't burn the place down or over-cook your food. Appetizers and other main courses are very good. Great Kimche Chigae and the wonderful little plates they bring out for every meal are varied, mysterious and delicious. The location seems to be cursed for previous businesses for some reason, so I hope enough people will come here for this place to survive. It really is a wonderful, reasonable and interesting dining experience for Korean cuisine.
