korean good... sushi bad – I was in on a weeknight and the sushi just wasn't that fresh. The korean food was great and the grilled fish was wonderful.
Let our management know about your experience when you come in next time. I hope we see you soon.
Fairly Accurate Korean Replication – For the record I am not Korean, but I just spent the last summer working in Korea. If you've never been to a Korean BBQ then you must visit one once. The best choices for first timers would be their Bulgogi and Calbi. They are both beef dishes cooked on the grill in front of you. I did not eat any Sushi on my visit. The service for us was great, maybe a little too much. Our waitress was friendly and talked quite a lot. She did come around quite often and was very nice. The food in this restaurant is a very good replication of what you will find in Korea, but there are a few differences. Much of the food wasn't spicy at all and some of it too sweet. The Pork Belly tasted like regular old bacon. The environment was great, and actually it looks exactly like the pictures shown above. It has a very modern look. Overall the food was pretty good, but nothing was particularly stunning. However, if you've never been to a Korean BBQ then you must definitely give this place a try.
Editorial Review – Bellevue residents load up on Asian delights at this friendly restaurant pick.
we ate everything! – we're big fans of kbbq and had high expectations for this place, especially since we're from LA. as with everything else we had up in seattle, it was much more fresh and flavorful than back home. we ordered the short ribs, bulgogi, and veggies to grill ourselves, as well as seafood soon tofu and a noodle bowl. all the little appies were standard, but still good, and we went through about four plates of the romaine salad - which you're supposed to eat WITH the meat, btw. service was attentive and value was good. we only waited ten minutes on a saturday night, too.
Great Korean food – All my korean friends rave about this place. It really is fun but I think we ordered the wrong things. I got the seafood bowl and it was not good. My husband also got a bowl that he didn't like. The menu was very large and we were overwhelmed. Many things looked good and you can cook it at your table. I wish we would have done that. I definately want to try it again but will cook something at the table. It was much pricier to cook something at the table and we were doing a lunch as a family of 5. Next time, I will probably go with some friends.
Best Korean Grill – I love food, and so does my boyfriend. We eat everything! This is our favorite Korean grill place that we've found. Before Blue Ginger opened, it was Mi-Rak (sp?) in Federal Way, we had a lot of service problems with them. Anyways, try their filet mignon, bulgogi, kabli..they're all favorites. They also serve this romaine salad with this chili dressing, yummy... All their small side dishes come with free refills.
This place is cute and it gets super busy on the weekends. I don't think they take reservations. Crowd is mostly Korean families, so that tells you something. Try it, you won't regret it. Oh, and did I mention that they have great specialty sushi rolls too? I know! So unexpected for a place like this.
