    Americanized Korean

    Take it from a Korean; this isn't the place to go to if you want authentic, home-style Korean food. Their galbi gui (beef short rib barbecue) is pretty decent, but terribly overpriced as it comes in such small portions. The neng myun (buckwheat noodles) is OK, but a little too sweet for my tastes. Their best dish is the mae-woon galbi tang (spicy short rib soup). If you want truly authentic Korean food I suggest you walk a little further down the street and go to either Gammiok for beef soup/mixed rice, Kunjip for pork belly BBQ/stews, or Dae Dong for its tofu dishes.

    Excellent Food and Service

    I have been to Kum Gang San many times and I have always been happy with the food and the service. The food is wonderful and there is so much to choose from! I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who loves Korean food or for those who havenever tried it before... it is great

    Overrated

    I used to live in Korea and love korean food. This place is soooooo overrated. The service isn't very good and the food is average. Go to Won-Jo down the street, they use hot coals (instead of gas at kum gang san) to cook the kalbi and therefore it tastes a lot better. The ambiance isn't all that but it's an overall better dining experience.

    Watch your bill

    I don't agree with Mary below because it's usually the other way around, Koreans generally do get better treatment than non-Koreans. That's one of the biggest complaints we non-Korean, Korean food lovers have; fewer 'panchans', longer waits, less attentive service, etc.. Anyway double check your bill because I was overbilled (by a buck or two) twice in the past and I'm starting to wonder... because my friend busted them again recently.

    bad service

    it's a known fact that if you'rea korean and you go to a korean restaurant, they give you POOR POOR service. so you have to pretend you're not korean. that's just the way it is. one time i went, i asked the lady how long the wait. she said 15 minutes. after 45 minutes, i asked her again, she said 10 more minutes. now i don't mind waiting, but at least tell me the TRUTH so i can decide whether to stay or not. i'm very critical of korean restaurants, and i think the food here isn't great. but i'm sure non-Koreans like this place. just pretend you're not korean when you go in to get a table. you'll get better service. waiters will be nicer to you and give you prompt attention.

    Excellent Korean BBQ

    Great place for groups and for Korean BBQ. You'll come out smellling like your dinner - so be forwarned. From the high flowing waterfall to the live traditional Korean music, this restaurant has all the best Korean BBQ has to offer. Price is high so go with your credit card. Try their BBQ at your table and enjoy BBQ the way its suppose to be.
