    Great Korean Barbecue

    Very upscale restaurant in the business district. I go three to four times a week, either with clients, friends, or by myself. I love the atmosphere, and the food is very good quality. Cleaner and more pleasant than the restaurants at 32nd Street. Fresh meat and seafood. The appetizers are all great, as I've tried almost all of them. I recommend the black tiger prawns on the barbecue menu as well as the bul go gi favorites of mine. The seven grain rice is also a favorite of anyone I take. The restaurant is very impressive and beautiful and very clean. Not as smokey as the old Woo Lae Oak of the 80's and 90's, and more private, but not nearly as many authentic Korean dishes. But still a great find in the city, and better than many of the other Korean restaurants around.

    Wonderful experience

    I have wanted to try this restaurant for quite some time. As I am not familiar with other Korean BBQ's I can not support nor refute the authenticity. However, the food was wonderful, the experience a lot of fun and the service incredible. I look forward to my next visit. And to the delightful manager, thank you again!

    Fun way to experience Korean cuisine

    I am Korean and many claim Bann is not authentic, but I still enjoy coming here for the ambience and the Americanized take on Korean food. The dungeness crab rolls are a must. The soups are very good here as well. Cocktails are inventive, and the service is very friendly and attentive.

    imperative recommendation

    Excellent food, high-quality preparation. Prime Korean fusion food. Good service. Experiencing Korean barbequeue is just great fun!

    An odd experience

    I have always wondered why Korean food never gets the love that Chinese and Japanese food do. Bann represents an excellent attempt by a Korean eating establishment to reach out to the non-Korean audience, and its menu and service are definitely non-Korean friendly. But there is something incredibly odd about having the waiter not understand my request for a specific bottle of soju (because my accent's so good!), or having to pay for a side of garlic to eat with my BBQ (all those side dishes usually come for free). If you're looking for a more genuine Korean experiece, head down to K-town. I'm sorry to say, however, that even in K-town the taste and value of food do not come close to what you can get on the other coast.

    Dissapointing

    Pork ribs first course - dry and tough. Calamari and eggplant in spicy sauce - very good, and almost enought to overcome the rest. Kal bi barbeque as main course - lazy cuts-without much to commend them. Service inattentive, much too long at every stage. Will not return and advise others to take same course - seems to be trend as restaurant was virtually empty at 7:30Pm on Monday. Go to K-town.
