  • lots of food not a lot of direction
    by  on 12/23/2011

    I enjoyed the food and it was fun. you order a main dish and all the sides come included but that wasn't clear on the menu. the food was excellent and just remember lots of sides come with the order

  • Unacceptably racist staff
    by  on 09/20/2011

    I visited with a friend of mine and his wife, who is Chinese. Service was okay until the waitstaff found out, at which point we went up to half an hour with no service. I don't care how fancy your restaurant is, that kind of conduct is unacceptable. Do not support this racist establishment.

  • Kae Jang: Simply the best!

    The restaurant's Kae Jang is the best I've ever tasted. As an avid fan of all things spicy, the raw crab is to die for an amazing.

  • Clean, elegant and delicious
    by  on 11/01/2010

    This is a favourite of me Korean American family. It's a bit on the pricey side but you're getting really excellent cuts of kal-bi (korean bbq). The service is top-notch and they are super friendly. Sides dishes are excellent and the overall experience is great. However, I'm more at home at the down-to-earth hole in the wall places -- which this is not. I'm always recommending ChoSun to folks who want a nice 101 intro to Korean BBQ but are a bit pedestrian with their eating adventures. This place won't scare them.

  • Overrated

    The place is clean on the inside, but that's it. The food is mediocre and service is OK. But the price for all of this? Not worth it, there are many other places in Los Angeles that are better.

  • The worst Koren BBQ and service
    by  on 08/14/2010

    If anyone wants to experience RACISM, this is the place that you have to visit!!!! The waitress put all the meat in and started to grill in 10 minutes everything was done. You will have to finish by then because there are many more customers waiting outside and they want more money come in. The waitress will keep checking if you are ready to leave and made us very very uncomfortable. No respect for customer. You will regret if you visit this restaurant and very expensive especially a lousy service like this! They will start to clean the table and you know they want you to leave! Very very impolite! Never experienced anything like this!

  • Great Korean food and attentive service -- definitely try it out!
    by  on 01/16/2009

    You'll first see a well-lit, pristine, modern building with attractive landscaping and a valet parking service. No grafitti, trash or shopping carts here! Once you enter, you're greeted by several well-groomed staff members in suits and hanbok (Korean kimonos) -- you might even think you're in a hotel lobby. You're guided to your table and handed your menus -- try not to get overwhelmed with choices. I had the Yookgaejang (""spicy beef and scallion soup"") ; my friend had the Galbee Dolsot Bibimbab (""sizzling rice hotpot with prime ribs and vegetables"".) We were also given a variety of complimentary appetizers, ranging from pickled sprouts and kimchi to potato salad. Here's a quirk: they didn't have any authentic Korean beer on their menu, but they served me Kirin (Japanese) in a Hite (Korean) beer glass! A staff member stopped by our table every few minutes -- their service was incredibly attentive and polite. We were also given a complimentary cup of sujunggwa (a sweet drink made with persimmon, pine nuts, cinnamon, and ginger) for dessert. Given this great experience, I'll definitely come back again!

  • used to be better
    by  on 04/17/2008

    honestly, i don't know what happened to this place. it used to be so much better! the meat quality got worse (or tougher) and i think they're starting to rely too much on their non-korean customers' unfamiliarity of korean cuisine nowadays to even realize to brush up on their act. the last couple of times i really wasn't impressed whereas i used to be consistently pleased every time i dined here, even though they're a bit pricey. i didn't mind paying so much before (for korean food) b/c the food (meaning the meat) was so good&soft. but now i'm not so thrilled about this place. i've started ordering non-bbq dishes from the menu and they're actually turning out to be a lot better than their bbq meats now. i'm hoping they improve...
