    Felt like the dishes were small for the prices that were being charged. Service was ok, maybe a language barrier but felt dismissed when asked waitress to order more food.

    Loved the variety choice of meat, the banchan availability, quality of meat, the table side cooking service, and the overall value!

    Daebak never disappoints. It is a great place for families. We have a family of 6 and a combo is perfect for us. Sides are delicious too. We also love the Kimchi soup. Meat is perfectly cooked and seasoned. We are repeat customers. After dinner, we enjoy walking off the food walking around Chinatown.

    The food was delicious and the service by Nick was very good. We had a party of 7 and he helped us with the food and our drinks without missing a beat. The beef dishes were our favorite. I recommend the seasoned pork belly.

    We had a really good time and enjoyed our meal. Our Korean Family was in town for an event and we were able to have a lovely evening. One thing is that Daebek is not really for Korean people. The wait staff do not necessarily understand the level of service expected by Korean’s at this type of establishment but for everyone else it is great. Would avoid the kimichi jigae as it is not very good. Tasted like ketchup. The high end meat was also a little tough. Recommend the soju/beer tower and the spicy pork. Those were excellent. Soondubu Jigae was good as a side. Other side dishes were also pretty good. Would definitely come back but won’t necessarily bring Korean folks…

    The food is good but for the amount you pay for, I’d expect to receive more food. We had a party of 3 guests and ordered the large (3-4ppl). It was the same amount as when you order the small (1-2ppl). We were still hungry either way. I’d say it’s better to not go with a larger party, it’s better to go to an “all you can eat Korean BBQ”. The quality here is the same quality at any other place, at least somewhere else you are getting multiple meats versus just 3 meats. But if you go as a couple, it’s worth the time, quaint and easy to locate. We paid $140 for just the food - no drinks. We shouldn’t be hungry afterwards though in my opinion. Staff is very nice and great customer service, restaurant is clean and well kept. Food is good quality and fresh.

    Excellent, would recommend. Ordered the beef dinner set for 2 of us. Choose 3 of 4 beef items: galbi, steak, marinated. Comes with rice, soup, banchan, egg custard, cheese corn. $78. The grill is a convex heavy iron plate heated by gas control vented directly above. The restaurant is not smoky at all. Park in the paylot along the red line and bring ticket in for validation. This is in the very east interior end of the new chinatown square.
