So not only did they deliver during the hurricane, before it got really bad, but hours after everyone else had closed, but when they forgot my coke and I called just to have them take the charge off, a non delivery member of their staff came back to give me the coke and two extra cans of soda for free. In a hurricane. I don't even know how to take that level of service. The food didn't knock my socks off but was very good. I will definitely order from them again.

My boyfriend and I were looking for some good Korean food - but what we found is probably one of our new favorite spots. From the second we sat down our waiter was very attentive - they mean business here. We ordered their signature watermelon drink, a large combo of half and half wings, and the hot stone chicken bibimbap. The second after we placed our order we were brought a bucket for our chicken bones, sauce for our bibimbap, and extra napkins. Our drink quickly arrived after and it was absolutely delicious. Within a few more minutes our main courses were brought to us. The wings were like nothing I have ever tasted before - the crispiest outside with the most tender inside, and every wing had more meat than the last. It was truly phenomenal. The staff was sure to refresh our napkin supply every time they could tell we were getting a little messy, which was great. The bibimbap was equally delicious - especially the vegetables, you could tell they were fresh. And not once did we have to ask for more water, the waiter kept us fully stocked on everything we need. An added bonus to this restaurant is the chic, yet comfortable decor that is accentuated by dim classical music in the back - I know it seems like an odd pairing, but it created a relaxing environment so we could truly sit back and enjoy our meals. By the time we were done eating, we were already planning our next visit back. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who's in search of some finger lickin good korean food!

I've been to Boka more than a few times. If you like/love Korean BBQ you like/love Boka. There are several Korean BBQ restaurants in the area but Boka is the best. The best selling appetizer is the Korean Fried Chicken. Nicely fried outside crispy skin and moist tasty meat on the inside. Just in a side not you can have all you can eat Korean fried chicken and coots lights Monday-Friday 5pm-8pm (the special may not be there a few days a week due to the masses that converge on Boka when they know the deal is happenning) usually $25.00 per person and everyone at the table must be in oh that deal. Even though the chicken can be an entree also their other choices are pretty tasty too. I've tried a few of there hot stone entered namely the spicy pork and it's really tasty and fillikg they don't skimp on the portions. I've never tried it myself but it seems from looking around the restaurant the watermelon soju is a popular item (but for $25.00?) I'll pass but that's just my opinion! They have a good (not great) selection of beers (anywayz if your looking to drink for cheap just go to continental bar around the corner on 3rd ave) the cocktails aren't that great either because ut seems the bartender my not really be a bartender. It can get rowdy and cramped espcially on a Friday or Saturday night. The wait staff leaves a little to be desired. Once thru take your order it seems like they don't comeback till it's time to bring the food or to clean up your table and bring the check. If you look directly at one it seems they'll grudgingly come over to your table. The prices are very reasonable and nothing to complain about. All in all it was a good experience and like I said intially I'll go back alot. I've never left this place feeling hungry.

The garlic soy chicken here is great - truly crispy and flavorable. I haven't had the full range of the other korean entrees, but the few i've had have all been on point

Their food is good, and the service is great, but it gets busy and sometimes, the waiters take a while to take our order or re-fill our drinks.

The food was almost the same as everything on that block. They're the first to have KFC on the block though. It was a bit pricey.

i disagree with the comment about poor service. every time i've dined, the wait staff has been attentive - esp for a korean joint. the food comes out quickly, in addition to the chicken always managing to hit the spot. what more could you ask for, other than a bigger appetite?
