Kaya Korean Restaurant is rated 4.7 out of 5 stars, based on 87 reviews!
One of my top spots for quality Korean food. The food was super appetizing. I will be back with my friends. It has a nice atmosphere. Mood here reminds me of San Diego's scene.
Nice spot for delicious Korean food. Fell in love with this place from the 1st taste. Staff treated us so kindly. Food is similar to a place in San Francisco I liked.
It's a wonderful Korean restaurant. Every dish was very delicious.
Korean food and the atmosphere at this location is super good. The service was very welcoming and sociable. They have so many reviews for a reason.
korean food and the atmosphere at this place is excellent. The food was tasty. Definitely worth a return trip. It has a cool interior.
My top spot for tasty korean food. Entered near eleven, it wasn't packed. This place has a great design. Feels like a cafe in Phoenix that I enjoyed visiting.
korean food and the setting here is very good. I love snacking here. Nothing but great experiences here. This place has a cool feel to it.
The food was very tasty, and generous portions. It was very busy as a tour-bus had arrived but the service was okay despite the huge crown of people all coming in.
It needs a bit of a facelift, but if you want Korean food in Fresno and don't want to do one of the "grill it at the table" places, this would be a great option!
korean food and the atmosphere at this place is super good. It was so savory. Service is consistently good. The place has a nice feel to it.
Various kind good food
A favorite spot for korean food. Very appetizing. Prices were good for how much you get.
korean food and service at this spot is great. everyone at our table was enjoying everything. the staff was very friendly and attentive. atmosphere is like a restaurant in fort worth i loved.
It doesn't look like they do the all you can eat right now and the prices for the plates are a little high, especially considering they don't take credit or debit cards. That said, the food is delicious! I had the beef and my partner had the chicken and we shared the sides. The bean sprouts are divine, the tofu is thin and deliciously seasoned, and the meat is cooked to perfection. I would definitely come here again!
This place is the best Korean restaurant I ate and I would definitely go back. The food was delicious and the service was great. My favorite dish at Kaya is the soon tofu soup and the meat bulgogi. The ambience is amazing and people are so kind and helpful in suggesting... Will definitely become a regular...
I've been there a couple of times and always best!
Good food, good service. I took my friend to here last and they said it was lesit Korean Restaurant. If you want to have something special, you must check this place out. You must love it
I am from Korea and have been in Fresno for five days. I came to Gaya because I missed Korean food so much. As soon as I had a bite of food, I felt the taste of it from my mother in Korea. The boss is too kind. I highly recommend. Thank you for nice food.
I love the food there! I will definitely go again !
The only real bad thing are their hours, but it's understandable from a business perspective. The food is slightly above mediocre. Basically a tad bit better than Cheesecake Factory.
The meats were delicious. Lots of food. Bummer that everyone at our table has to order the same option. Place was clean and we will definitely go back.
This place is nice,clean,friendly staff and the ribs are amazing.we ate there yesterday for first time.I will go back soon!
I have to say that for my first time going to a Korean restaurant I was so happy. I don't tend to try new foods because I usually don't like them, but without a doubt in my mind I can say it was very delicious. Everyone was very kind and the restaurant itself was very beautiful. Thank you very much Kaya!
My take on Kaya.
Their food is quite amazing. I certainly enjoyed what I ordered, and was impressed with the service. I was able to witness the servers, catering to a mass of tourists who had just come in before my group, and they didn't wait long to be seated, and served.
Food was fantastic and portions were great! Can’t wait to come back!
The waitress who first waited on us was rude. I asked if she can give us a few more minutes to look over the menu, and she tells me she's very busy with other customers.
However, the owner came and talked to us while he was cooking our meat on the grill, and he made the experience a whole lot better. He's very friendly, and the rest of the staffs appeared so too.
The food is GREAT! I have had Korean BBQ down south and up north, and all I can say is, I no longer need to drive out of town for delicious Korean food. The meat is very flavorful and tender. I didn't care for the side dishes, but I hear the Kimchi is good (I don't like Kimchi in general).
It is not AYCE, but the platter of meat is generous and will definitely fill you up.
I am recommending this place to everybody I know.
If you are thinking about trying it, just do it! Your belly won't regret it :)
This Korean restaurant does a lot of business serving Korean tours to Yosemite. If you arrive and see a big bus out front, then it's best to come again another time. But if you catch them either before the bus comes or well after it leaves, then you'll get great service. We think the kalbi is better here than the other place in town. Is it like Los Angeles - oh, no! But, it's decent and can satisfy those cravings for Korean food just enough.
We had a great time grilling our food ourselves. The food was so tasty and good, and our server helped us out since we were beginners. Highly recommend!
Kaya just recently opened to the public and I love Korean BBQ so I thought let me give it a shot. The waiters are very sweet and always smiling, the owner came out and said hi to everyone and thanked them for coming which was a plus, the meat was very flavorful which corresponds well with the rice, which has minimal flavor. The restaurant is very spacious and it has 2 main dining areas and it's always spotless, which for me and many others is the main factor. Way better than shila and the meat is way better quality here. I recommend this place to everyone. Korean BBQ at its finest. I forgot to mention now they have noodles if you would prefer instead of rice and I came in around the same time frame the busses came in filled with what seemed like 200+ people and I was impressed with how fast and organized they were dealing with that many people plus everyone that came in before, without looking stressed out or overwhelmed. Well trained
This is the best food i have had in a really long time. The staff were really friendly and helpful. The internet says that this restaurant is open from 11AM-9PM but its actually 11AM - 3PM and then 4PM-9PM.
This place is awesome. Short ribs? Awesome. Fried fish? Awesome. Ban chan? All awesome... good thing because I really don't like Samo's.
Spicy pork is so delicious and seafood soup is also tasty. I think this place is the best Korean restaurant in town.
I visited with my brother who visited from New York yesterday. We ordered grilled yellow corvena( jogi gui ) and yugyejang (spicy beef souo). Jogi gui was fresh and tasted really good. My wife said yugyejang was good, too. My brother didn't expect good korean food in fresno But he enjoyed the food and was very satisfied with services. I will recommend this place to every one.
The restaurant is big, with dine in or the option for BBQ. However, the BBQ booth is kinda small. They bring all of the meat all at once, and in large portions. The meat needs more flavor and more seasoning. The only meats that I found to be flavorful was the spicy pork and the short rib. They'll give you a lot of meat the first round so make sure to tell them smaller portion if you are doing all you can eat and would like to try other cut, meat, and flavor. The tofu soup is huge and very tasty. I normally eat my food a bit more on the saltier side so to me, I had to ask for soy. I love garlic but man oh man, one of their side sauce is over powered with raw garlic. I say give it a try.
Went with my friends and we had a blast. Food was amazing and the staff was friendly. They checked up on how we were doing pretty often and made sure we were having a great time. Will definitely come back with friends and family!
I've heard of this place through Facebook and really wanted to try it out since I love Korean food and have been quite disappointed with Shila after trying it several times. Tonight's customer service was spectacular I believe the owners spent a lot of time talking about their dishes and also helped BBQ some meat for us while we all chatted and ate. Their English is limited but expected since I'm used to talking with older people who are not born here and have proficient English skills. The food was pretty darn good, the best Korean BBQ I have had yet. The meat selection was extremely fresh and of great quality. The kimchi was delicious and the rest of the side dishes were great especially the cucumber side dish it was extremely refreshing! I also order items off the BBQ option and really enjoyed the dolsot bibimbap and the jajangmyeon. Anyways let me ta,K about the quality of the meat, we got Option C and the quality of all the meats we received was amazing!!!!! At Shila I would never get the chicken since it wasn't really tasty but the chicken I ate tonight was marinated so deliciously! The meat was tender and juicy and I enjoyed it so much. The kabli beef was fantastic and melted in my mouth.The prices were reasonable and a little high on the Option C but so worth it due to the quality of meat I was given tonight. I will definitely be coming back and making this my permanent spot for my Korean BBQ fix!
Newly renamed korean restaurant. Not much business but their food quality is actually very good, better than Shilla, their only competition. Got three orders- Bulgogi, chicken, and a vegetable. Sides are free, could have used a few more selections, but those are refilled for free. Gave us a delicious seaweed soup as an appetizer for free.
I've been to lots of korean restaurants in my life. This one is above average. Service was fast because not too many customers. Waitress even helped with cooking our food, which was nice.
Okay so there's not much to say about this place except for the fact that it's BETTER THAN SHILA!!!!! The staff here is better than shila and the food tastes way better! How does it taste better??? Simple.. they season their meat!!!! If you are looking for Korean BBQ, don't go to shila or else u will hate Korean BBQ.
The person who waited on us at first was rude, but the owner came and talked to us while grilling our meat, and he definitely made the experience better.
With all the buses in the parking lot we didn't think we would find a table. We walked in and was greeted right away and seated in the BBQ area. The food is cooked in front of you by server and the flavor a were amazing. Our server was polite and understood everything we said. Which made it better to talk while she is cooking your dinner. We would go back again. The place was clean.
Old man who owns the place spent time at our table and was really nice. We had a blast. Food was great. Prices were reasonable.
Me like. I stare through window. I see people eating. I see people smiling. I try I try. I like I like. You like too if you try. You Go try now.
Great meat quality in the BBQ area. The portion was a good size. The size dishes were not as much as other areas, but still good. The only think I would complain about is the price. It's slightly on the high side.
This place is probably more authentic than shila BBQ. The food is amazing and full of flavor. The only down fall is that service isn't that great and can be much improved upon. I like how they bring all the meat for you to try first before you actually get to pick the rest.
Amazing service and attentive! Food, portion, and price are all unmatched by other places in Fresno. Definitely a place to grab some authentic Korean food :)
Loved this place. Foods are great and people are friendly and helpful. It's is now my to go to place for all things AYCE Korean BBQ add/or just regular dine in.
So far, one of the best Korean food we've had in a long time. I'm Korean and I'm very picky with my food. Everything was tasty and fresh! Hands down, best Korean restaurant in the valley! Very generous on the portion with excellent table-side service.
Sat in the grill section and it was a fun experience. They cooked the meat at the table.The decor is really dayed and uncomfortable feeling. The meat came with lots of kimchi fixings. Get the grill meat!
I stop by this restaurant since I was craving Korean food. I had Korean bbq which was pretty decent. It is not perfectly ready yet- remodeling, but I loved their food and the ambience. Try out! You won't regret.
I had bibimbap for the first time in San Diego earlier this year and knew my husband would love it. The stars finally aligned and we found Kaya. The service was friendly and everything was delicious.
We ordered bibimbap, I had the normal and my husband had the hot pot. They brought all the kimchee, and 2 kinds of soups. The soybean soups was so good, I mean sooo gooood. It was really quiet, only one other table was full in the main room. There were some people who came in and either got take out or were eating in some other room. I guess it's all about timing, other people have said that it gets really busy. Either way, we'll be back.
Finally Fresno!!! You guys, do yourself a flavor! (Pun intended) That's right, do yourself a flavor and check this place out. Each dish actually had distinctive flavor, delicious, authentic, and service was awesome. How awesome? The owner himself came out and introduced himself to us. I really appreciate him taking the time, telling us a little bit about his business, where it's been and where it's heading, its definitely worth the time to write a positive review for them, hopefully get them some business, they more than earned it; I regret I didn't catch his name, but I will when I got back.
They have a separate lounge area with bar and karaoke. Seriously, you guys looking for a good, low key place to dine and then grab drinks and sing afterwards without going far, this is the place!
Again, check it out. Just try it once, it's not something we have a lot of here in Fresno but it is something that you will enjoy. You have nothing to lose.
This spot is the bomb if I'm really hungry I'll do the Buffett option otherwise a light tofu soup with sides for a light fit.
Really good Korean food reminded me of Los Angeles. The prices are very good and the quality of meat was nice! I had the seafood tofu soup and sirloin steak. The BBQ section of the restaurant looked like it was from Korea. Overall I was pleased with my experience!
The food here is soooooo good!! The bulgogi had such good flavor!! This is going to be the new dinner spot for me!
This is one of THE best Korean restaurants I've been to in the US. That's compared to places in San Fransisco, Portland and Seattle. It's like having a delicious meal in the land of the rising sun. DELICIOUS!
Me and my family decided to check this place out as we had a hankering for authentic Korean food. It's located near a hotel and it's a fairly big restaurant. We were seated near the back area that had a bbq stove to cook your own meat in. The waitress was very nice and friendly, although her English wasn't great, she understood everything. I asked for a recommendation and she brought out the works.
Along with all the side dishes, we got tons of bulgogi meat to cook, rice of course, fried fish, some lettuce to wrap and ordered a few Korean beers to wash it all down with. Meats came marinated. After cooking it on the stove, hot, fresh and juicy meat right in front of me, that's what she said. The waitress will even come by to cut it up and prep it for you if you're too busy eating. But I enjoyed cooking it myself right on my table.
The price was very reasonable for the amount of food we got. We left stuffed and even had leftovers to take home. All this came under about $80 for the three of us. I just left them $100 even steven.
Overall, it was a pretty good experience. I would highly recommend it if you never have experienced a restaurant like this. It reminds me of the restaurants in Koreatown where you can cook your own meal on your table, just not as hectic and expensive. I know i'd easily spend a couple hundred there.
I'll definitely be coming back.
This is the place to go for Korean BBQ in Fresno. All the flavors of the meat and side dishes were on point. And the lady running the restaurant was very nice and accommodating. This is a hidden gem in Fresno.
Pro tip: It's usually packed on Monday, Thursday, and Friday because of tour buses. So try to come on another day.
This place is the place to go if anyone is craving some authentic Korean food. I recommend the "la galbi". It come out fresh and sizzling. So far this has to be the best in Fresno, in my opinion. If you're expecting a five star restaurant from Kaya, it probably has to be your pass. Note that they have tour buses loaded in and out. With the amount of workers in their restaurant, you'll have to be a little patient with the service from the workers.
Yes! I love love this place! Depending on what time you go, you may hit the rush of the Korean tour buses coming in. The service may be a little slow in spite that there is just 1 waitress but overall the food is fast and delicious! It's well worth the wait! Thank you Susie for always making my visit a fulfilling time!
being a korean raised gal myself i swear i thought fresno would never get such an amazing restaraunt. the food is the best!! Customer service was amazing. The staff is so friendly. All of the sides are definitely homemade from very experienced cooks. Nothing americanized about their plates. I love this restaraunt and I'm definitely going to be coming back often
Love their stir fry calamari and soups. Also tried their all you can eat Korean BBQ and was very pleased. If you want authentic Korean food check this Resturant out!
SO HAPPY that we have a REAL Korean BBQ in town! I'm moved lad year from LA, so K town (Korea Town) has so many options, I was sad to leave my fav places down south.
But not anymore! My husband's favorite would be Bulgogi (marinated beef), and I'm a brisket and Sirloin gal myself. Our waitress was attentive and all the food was DELISH!
Not sure why someone said they weren't attended, that was NOT the case. Everyone, including the servers, bus-people, and whom I'm assuming was the owner/manager were SO nice! Made me forget about So Cal.
A MUST TRY! We WILL be back!
Parking:plenty, self park
Price: totally worth the amount of food you get/quality
Ambiance: cool and refreshing even with the grills
Kaya Korean BBQ is to be highly recommended as an excellent restaurant. The food and atmospheric of the restaurant was top notch, and the smiling friendly staff were great. Excellent food, fresh meats, delicious side dishes. An excellent experience
Fresno finally has an authentic ayce Korean bbq restaurant! I don't get all the bad service reviews... Everyone there was super friendly and attentive! It's a family run restaurant and sometimes they can get busy, and with the small staff that they have, they can't "please" everyone. So try to be understanding and patient... Have a beer and enjoy your company, the food is definitely worth the wait!
I was craving for Jajangmyeon and saw this on Yelp. Unfortunately they don't have it when I went so I had Kimchi stew and Bibimbap for take out instead. I'm surprised by the hefty amount of servings for my Bibimbap and I love that they also put a ton of side dishes for you. I love the flavors! Definitely hit the spot! Will come back again to try other items on the menu and will come back for Jajang for sure.
Great place for quality Korean BBQ meats. The place to be in Fresno!
We came here on a Wednesday evening at around 7:45 pm. It was surprisingly relatively quiet. Initially, there was a lady in the front who seated us and was not very friendly. She seemed put off that we came in late and took forever to get anything we requested. She is the only reason I would give the place 4.5 stars if I was able to. The owner stopped by and treated us extremely well. He provided us excellent service which made up for the poor service up front.
Our entire table ordered Korean BBQ meat (the all you can eat) and the meat quality was amazing. The brisket was very premium slices as was everything else. Their marinated meat and LA Galbi were well marinated and tasty. Even the chicken was marinated well. They were a bit limited on the side dishes and didn't have Korean hot sauce (we used siracha instead), but what they did had tasted good. However, the quality of the meats made up for everything else and definitely surpassed that of Sheila Korean BBQ. I look forward to trying their other Korean dishes - they make za jiang myun and do sot bi bim bap. Can't wait.
Overall, great meat, kind and attentive owner. A good place for bbq with friends.
Loved the food! Prefer the tofu soup, short ribs, & bulgogi over my normal Korean restaurant choice in Fresno. So glad we decided to try this place out! Loved the kimchi so much we bought a jar to take home! Service was great! We decided to do dine in instead of the grilling, chef came out and brought out a small grill and a plate of meat for us to try! Restaurant was clean, staff was diligent and on top of it! Will be coming back
I took my daughter here today for her 15th birthday. She loves Korean dramas, music, language and people in general. So I though this would be a great place to take her. We did the BBQ part and it was so much fun. She enjoyed it with a couple friends , myself and my son. The service was pretty great. They checked on us a good amount of times and brought us anything we needed or wanted. I will come back here again.
This place is awesome. The food was soo delicious, and their service was excellent. I had great and pleasant time there. For those who would like wonderful Korean food and Korean barbecue, I highly recommend Kaya.
3.5 overall, but I can round it to 4 because at last, the server lady was being more friendly to us after we conduct conversation... The a la cart food is pretty good. I got to taste their Kalbi (the ribs) sorry if I don't know how spell it right ... tofu soup and bibimbap were delicious. Initially we wanted to do BBQ all u can eat.. but coming from LA, looking at $18+ for menu A with 3 options only, is not appealing to our eyes. The menu B more expensive and still the options are not that great. So we decided to do a la cart which at that time we think was a better option. Appetizer is good! Kimchi was well made, fish cake is yummy... I would recommend you to give this restaurant a try!
I have to say, it wasn't the 2 sheriff's parked outside of an abandoned car that almost steered me away from here, it was the comments on service. It was the one thing everyone was consistent about. But it was the other consistent thing that made me decide to give it a try, they all raved about the food. I always drive past here, and wonder if it's even open. This is a rough area, no doubt about that, so hold your belongings close when the guy(or girl for that matter) with the tattoos on his face walks by. And of course I walk in, and it's empty, save for a table of 3. I got my food before they did too, so good call on my part taking it to go. That decision was prompted by the bad service reviews, and my desire not to tip and save a few bucks. Plus eating in an empty restaurant of this size is pretty depressing. They could easily fit a party of 30. There were probably only 2 workers, so serving a party of 30 would be another matter. I really am enjoying my food though. If I could compare the amount of food, with what you pay, it's like going to Panda Express. But you won't be hungry an hour later. I would have liked to get the bulgogi, but I wasn't prepared to spend $15 +tax. This was a pleasant surprise nevertheless
I first heard about this place after seeing an ad in the Bee that it was "under new management". They had some horrible past reviews so it did not come expecting too much
When you first enter you are asked to make a selection for BBQ or sushi. It determines where you get seated. This place clearly has the individual patron service has a secondary priority and make their living on feeding the tour buses. There were at least 30 tables prepped awaiting the tourist when we arrived
This is ala carte traditional korean bbq. I find it hilarious when there are reviews of other korean places complaining of certain meats being unseasoned and comparing it to Shila's. It is completely different when you have AYCE, even in LA... and yes many meat offerings are unseasoned traditionally since you are supposed to taste the raw quality of the ingredient and flavor it for your own taste. They offered table service and cook your it for you for the most part. This place does not have good ventilation and certain dishes such as pork belly have to be cooked in the kitchen or they will have to find you a certain table with a direct vent.
Service was great and they were extremely pleasant. My wife is Korean and they were chatting away and some of it was lost in translation, however it was obvious they had good relations with the other guest too. The chef in the back actually came out and greeted all 4 tables personally. From the first bite of their homemade banchan, you know this place is legit. you can taste the difference. The spicy pork and Kalbi was a high quality and had great deep flavor.
One big issue came up at the end. I noticed the table next to us tried to order beef tongue and were told out of 4 dishes at the start of dinner on a Friday night when it is not at all busy. The chatter in background was translated to me that it was reserved for the tour bus. Overall I will be back to try other items for sure. It is very authentic and about the best korean I have had in Fresno. If I had my korean in-laws around... I would call ahead, make sure there is no tour bus dining and reserve it... well maybe except for the mother-in-law....lol
After coming here a couple more times, I am still very pleased about my experiences. It's still 5 stars!
But, I wanted to add that it now has an ALL YOU CAN EAT option. And a lot of people who go to Korean Barbecues want an all you can eat option. So, I think a lot of people will be pleased because the food here is better than Shila's, which is sadly our only other option.
I read through the reviews before coming, so I made it a point to ask the hostess about seating.
Initially, she intended to sit us at a regular table, but we were there for some BBQ as well, so I asked which dishes would permit grill seating. She explained the technicalities of the menu right then, and though it took a minute of standstill communication, we managed to redirect our waitress towards the grill area. It was a bit awkward (borderline unwelcoming?) since the lights were turned off in said area, but she made due.
After ordering, the waitress promptly set up our grill, banchan (lettuce too!), and drinks without us having to ask. She assisted us with grilling, gave us tips on how to proceed without her, and even gave us an additional serving of rice, free of charge. Overall, no complaints.
My only hope is that they'll get into the habit of asking customers which section they'd like to sit in.
It's been awhile since I had an amazing food experience. This was it.
I'm surprised by comments of poor service. I really felt like I was eating in the home of a Korean friend. They were very nice to us.
It was a bit awkward upon arrival, no one was in front. If you can excuse the fact that they don't have a big staff and the possible language barrier, it was a very pleasant experience. Remember, it's a lovely couple running it.
So of course with that said, the food was fresh and made with love and pride. I'm not Korean to say it's authentic, but the quality was way better than an AYCE Korean BBQ joint.
The hot tea was pleasant. Our meat selections came w a variety of sides, a personal bowl of rice and a small sized soup. Everything we ordered tasted good. The pork belly was cooked perfectly. Their black bean noodle was tasty. The mackerel went nicely with the nice. It was filling, yet I still felt light. A perfect meal.
I'm definitely coming back here for Korean food.
Very impressed for my first Korean bbq experience. Nice clean bbq table and dining area. Great waitress that guided us newbies through what and how to order and how to cook.
The food was very good. Everything was fresh and well prepared. I look forward to going back again.
After living in Korea, my standards for Korean food are, to be honest, very high. I have had Korean BBQ at another place in the area and was incredibly disappointed. But Kaya is a blessing! It smelled, tasted, and felt like wating at the restaurant down the street from my house growing up.
The food is incredible and the staff is very welcoming. The portions, even when you choose from the regular menu and not the "all you can eat" are quite generous. We were stuffed before we even finished our order! And the flavor! Hands down the winner in comparison to a more well-known restaurant in the area.
If you're looking for quality Korean cuisine in the Fresno area - whether you're already a fan or are looking to try it for the first time - this is the spot. The other places in town just don't stack up against Kaya. I'm hungry again just thinking about this place!
When we went inside there was no one at the front but on this paper it read " ring for service". After the 3rd ring, still no one until the server passed by and we got her attention. She sat us down and then asked if we had any questions. We ordered kimchi pork belly, soups and bibimbap. The food was good, the portions were more than what I could finish and it literally hit the spot! I just wished our sides were a bit better and also this place had no AC what so ever...they had large fans but it was not helpful. I didn't mind but it isn't a great place to bring children especially a sweaty 1 year old. The service could be a bit better, 4 stars for the food.
My wife and I tried the all you can eat and got the choice where you can basically try all the meats. Galbi is our favorite and it did not disappoint here. We also had spicy pork, shrimp and the beef bulgogi. The spicy pork was great also and I really liked the bulgogi. There was also a good selection of sides which I really liked. My wife being from Hawaii really wanted some mac salad, but it's easy to understand why there was none.
The all you can eat was nice so we had a chance to try a lot of different stuff. My only complaint with it was that the portions were too big. I'd have liked to get about half as much meat each time so that we could try more things. There were three or so meats I wanted to try but we were too full to get to them.
The floor under our table was greasy. When we got there we were the only ones in the cook it yourself area, and we got there around five so we were the first dinner guests in that area. There was no reason for it not to have been mopped.
We love Korean food and will be back for the spicy pork and beef short ribs. Next time we'll skip the all you can eat though.
Good meats, good sides, and good service. Better quality meats than the newer Shila and the marinades were on point. We tried the all you can eat - so didn't try anything this time, but next time want to try the korean dishes other than the bbq.
We did go when they werent too busy except for a bus of tourists passing through - so can't comment on other's reviews of slow service.
Would recommend the "B" ayce for beginners.
Love this place ! Its a hidden gem that is between a motel and other businesses and the food here is just amazing . We immediately got seated and served . Prices are great for the dining , I can't say for the Korean BBQ but it looked great . We got offered free testing drinks for the restaurant and the service was great . The workers were sweet and patient with us . Would definitely come again to try their grilling korean bbq !
I sometimes go there with my friends, and kalbi is really good!!and kimchi soup! If you like asian food, you should try to go there!
The food was excellent. Prices are reasonable. They provided lots of fresh sides and the meat came out immediately perfectly thin sliced and large pirtions ready to throw on the clean grill. Halfway thru cooking they changed it out for us because it was our first time grilling it ourselves and we were making a mess I'm sure. They also offer already cooked options. Just get here before the tourist busses and it's kinda warm inside in the summer especially at a grill table. Other than that, it is a great food experience.
Very authentic Korean food. This place used to be closed to the public and would only serve Korean tour groups coming through town. Since they opened to the public, they have made a lot of people happy. I recommend the marinated short ribs.
The food here is delicious! The Galbi (marinated short ribs) is a must-have. Extremely flavorful and tender.
The grill area could use some sprucing up, and service can be a bit slow, but the food makes up for it.
The service has been great since we come in so often the older waitress usually knows exactly what we want by now. It's usually empty inside unless during dinner hour. Lunch hour has some great deals though!
I love the spicy tofu soup, whether it be with beef or seafood. I usually get beef but I change it up to seafood sometimes lol I get it spicy spicy!! And it always hits the spot ! Comes with an order a rice and for the price you can't beat it. It's an awesome serving size.
The dolsot bibimbap is also a family favorite. We always add some read hot sauce and let the hot stone bowl do it's magic ! So good!!
I like the regular pork belly over the spicy pork belly but that's just preference. Here they cook the meat for you unless you're in the BBQ section. And that's fine with me lol it may seem a bit pricy but the food is really good! Comes with sides and some rice with each order of meat.
Our second favorite is the bugolgi !
The service can be a bit slow at times when they're hit with a big tour bus. There can be a language barrier at times , so just be patient. I'm glad we were able to find such a gem in Fresno.
In fresno, it is hard to find korean food restaurant.
Kaya is one option.
Reasonable price and many kind of Korean foods are served.
Quality is good but not best.
Great Korean bar-bar-q here. Every thing us fresh. The salmon was moist, tasty and a very generous serving. The pork is good too. Don't forget to visit the gift shop. They have some wonderful local dried fruit and gifts.
