This wasn't my first time to the East Village location, but far from the best experience. Server was unsure of prices requested manager because I was being charged for something I didn't order and she the nerve to over charge $23 from card and brought a receipt with smaller ammount of cash & requested for server to get a tip after horrible service.

Amazing food! Come after 9:30 and most things are half price.

I went here with some friends when we had a friend visiting from out of town. We had a great time! Yes, it was a bit pricey, but the quality of the meat and seafood was really good, the atmosphere was fun, and our server, Ting, was wonderful about explaining the menu to us. I wouldn't say this is a restaurant to go to all of the time, but it's definitely more interesting for a festive evening out than a lot of other places. And the fact that you're cooking your own food lends to the boisterous environment, making it good for a celebration. We weren't afraid to be a little loud! I will definitely bring more out of town guests here, and think it could even be a good date restaurant.

I went here for my birthday dinner with a group. The place was nice and it was a fun experience, but the portion sizes are ridiculously small. On the menu they recommend getting two portions per person, which seemed odd. Even the waiter seemed embarrassed. So even though the prices on the menu are reasonable, you have to order a ton of food to feed yourself. It's all gimmick. I wouldn't go back.

What a nice evening out- this was my first time trying Korean BBQ, and it was great! The waitress was helpful and kind (she explained the menu and supplied some GREAT tips about how to make our dinner), the atmosphere was great, and our food was delicious. Our order came SO quickly (being raw probably helped) and being able to cook everything to our liking was a real treat!

Here's my take on Andrew's review. "The salads are OK" - I don't know. I thought the salads were really good, especially if you like Asian inspired salads. I thought this was one of the top items that I liked. "$20 for 7-8 super thin slices of meat?" - that is so typical of a uninformed criticism. the pricing is based upon Kobe beef. The same beef that goes for 100+ for a tiny portion of steak in many top end restaurants. "No bbq service from the waiters either." - I do not know what to say. Maybe pompous? "Go to a Korean restaurant and for the same price, you will get three times the amount of meat (expensive + tasty) and the waiter will grill it for you too!" - if price was that much of an issue then why come? Also you better like Korean food since that is all they serve. You will not get salads of this quality in ANY Korean joint that I know of. Nor you will see any inspiring and/or creative dishes. "The people in the front of Gyu Ka Ku also took 5 minutes to retrieve my party's coats when they were not busy at all." - maybe you should try tipping ;)
