Who doesn't love Korean BBQ? plus All you can eat? I am there. I checked out Korean Grill House on a Saturday night but thankfully made a reservation at 8:15 so we got to avoid the long lineup.



We decided to go with All You Can Eat Regular for $14.95 which includes Pork, Beef, Chicken, Beef Ribs, Ox Tongue, Ox Liver, Salmon, Squid and Fish Fillet.



I saw that many people were having drinks, but I decided to just get sprite. Just the thought of the extra heat on my face (asian flush) from the alcohol PLUS the grill, would be too much for me. Note that all fountain drinks are free refill.



Table Setting: fork, chopstickand, spoon, side plate, sauce dish and a tong to cook your meat with



They first gave us rice, soup and all types of meat plus the side dishes when we decided to order All You Can Eat. Sidedishes are tofu, potatoes, kimchi, beansprout and pickled radish. They were all pretty decent for a All You Can Eat restaurant.



After the first round, they gave us a chart sheet to fill out to order more


 Pork & Short Ribs
* Watered down sweet soy sauce to dip the meat in

* Beef is surpringsly tender and overall well seasoned
* Pork is average but the sauce was a little too sweet
* Chicken takes awhile to cook and it just tasted like teriyaki chicken



Beef, Chicken &  Squid

* I was surprised to see beef tongue on the menu.
* They are thinly sliced and marinated in sauce.
* The tongue doesn't take very long to cook and it was quite delicious



Cooking Beef & Salmon
I enjoyed the short ribs the most. The marinade was little too strong (sweet & salty) and some of the meat pieces were very fatty but it was pretty good with rice Rice was much needed since all of the meat are marinated and the flavors are really strong.
Service is pretty decent, you just need to wave them down cause they won't ask you if you need anything first. I would say that the only thing that was bugging me is that the meat was taking FOREVER to cook. Also, remember that you can ask them to change the grill for you if it gets too messy and turns black. Plus remember to make reso when you visit this restaurant, I left around 9:30'ish and there was still a long lineup outside.

Summary: Korean BBQ can get quite pricey if you go to Korean restaurants and eat till you are full. If you aren't too picky about the quality of meat and a little bit of MSG, Korean Grill House isn't that bad once in awhile. For $14.95 it will def fill you up. Just remember that you will end up walking out like you swallowed BBQ meat.

I've actually never been here before, but I've been to Made in China kind of often back when I went to school :) Have you been to Chingu before? I think it's a great authentic Korean BBQ in the GTA.. but it's not AYCE.

Made in China? that's the one on Yonge street, right? I haven't been to Chingu, maybe I will try there if I am craving Korean BBQ! Thanks for the suggestion :)

I haven't been to Korean bbq for a while so when a friend brought me to Chako I was pleasantly surprised. They are a bit more expensive but they also have AYCE sushi as well. They call themselves Izakaya but I don't remember seeing any Izakaya items there. There was one good place in RH but I think we ate them out of business! LOL
