Me and my buddies have never had korean bbq before so we decided to try it. There were 7 of us and we got seated on the 3rd floor. The atmosphere is pretty modern and comfortable. Service was pretty nice as well. Now for the pricing, we ordered about 8 dishes of BBQ in different varieties i was suprised of how LITTLE meat there was. Each of these dishes were $22+ so we assumed we would have gotten more than just a small little plate. The BBQ was mediocre at best. The bill was over $180. Needless to say, unless your rich and dont care about food quantity your in for an overpriced experience :)

I had special family meeting at Shilla. One of them was from long distnace area. But we have a wonderful time and great BBQ. I think the Shilla is one of the best Korean BBQ Place. And reasonable prices!

Went there with my wife, very excited to try their kimchi fried rice with pork. After we ordered, the food came 5 minutes later (suggesting that the food was simply nuked) The waiter came back with a dish that had NO PORK. I asked for pork. He came back with five pieces of pork added that were bigger than a penny, and maybe another 5 the size of a pea. I asked the waiter why there was no pork, and he said "The pork is kind of a garnish". WOW! That would have been good to know BEFORE I ordered the food. Than another waiter stopped by and said that if I had wanted a dish with pork, I should have ordered BBQ pork! Again, something that would have been good to know. Finally I asked to speak to a manager, and she said: "when we make this dish in Korea, we have no pork." So why advertise it with pork if they add no pork? She had no answer to that. My wife's food was bland and only lukewarm to boot. I have been to other restaurants on Korea Way that were a million times better than this. BEWARE!

Never again for lunch here at least so i guess since i didn't speak korean than i get placed to sit in the front the restaurant which was empty while everyone else "korean" was sitting in the back... the side dishes were meeh, but our meal was gross. i didn't want to remember what I ordered. it was so expensive too. my gf and i both ordered soups with meat. my bowl of meat and soup had no flavors. bad meat quality. my gf's soup had scallion overload, the soup actually some flavor. she didn't like her meal either. We both love korean food, but not this place. Hopefully they will make the necessary changes to service and food.

I had Curry Katsu for lunch and was very disappointed at the quality of the food. The meat was very dry to the point the end pieces were hard. It was not fresh at all. They served it with what seemed about three bowls of rice underneath the curry & cutlet. I understand they're not a japanese restaurant, but that should not mean they serve a poor quality Katsu. I felt like all they served was a huge plate of rice and It was such a waste! I wouldn't go here again!

We had dinner this evening at Shilla and were extremely disappointed by the quality of the food. The tartare was ice cold almost frozen, the squid was sitting in a sauce that looked like to have been done days before, and the Bi Bim Bop was served in a wooden bowl (!) with almost no rice and a lot of lettuce, basically a salad with a couple of veggies in it. A very disappointing experience overall with food really not prepared correctly. A cheap imitation of a real Korean place. I actually went out of my way to make sure I would put a review on this restaurant because I want to make sure people don’t get fooled like I did. There are so many more attractive options around.

I have gone there with my co-workers and friends for Kal -bi numerous times and it has never failed to please my taste buds. Flavor and the tenderness of the meat just melts in your mouth. I have to say Shilla's Mul Naeng Myun is the best I ever had. It was the exact taste I have experienced from Korea. I am not sure if you are into raw beef but... My friend just got me into it. lolz. Yook Hwe there is the best!! It's fresh and yummy! Looking forward to going back there soon!!
