I've been told by my friend Donna K. to try it here because I asked her about a photo she posted on Instagram and it looked very tempting and my girlfriend wanted to know too so she told me it was this place. Me and Sandra were searching for a place to eat specifically Korean and as we got to our easy Korean fix which was Bi Won, sadly it was closed for good that made the both of us depressed.. Searching further we stumbled across Aladin and I recall Donna telling me about it so we had decided to give it a try, as we got in we had to look at what's available, 3 different places with different choices, Japanese, Korean ala carte, and Korean buffet, we looked into the buffet as we've been starving.. First skeptical about eating there knowing it was P490 per head so we had to make sure it was gonna be worth it, looking around there was basically no people as we got there around 6:30pm or so, the selection wasn't a lot and I was more skeptical at first but when I saw there's unlimited beef I was actually good to go so was Sandra and we gave it a try. Interesting enough there were these cookers hanging from the ceiling that look like aluminum elephant snouts but was cool and it was pretty spacious but close quartered, tables weren't that far apart. Starting to eat, the squid I have to say was really good, it had the perfect amount of spice and how it was cooked, I liked it a lot, going for my second plate I grabbed some bulgogi beef and their fried rice which looked so delicious to eat as a combo, as I tried it, it was okay, somewhat good but I noticed the bulgogi wasn't tender and the beef was cheap and not of good quality at all and not to mention it was sort of rough, nonetheless I was getting my tummy filled by eating and thinking for P490 this seems good enough. As the waitress was cooking our beef we got it down on the plate and it looked like some sort of obsidian bacon which looked weird.. After trying it, it wasn't that bad but Sandra told me the beef was cheap which I did agree later on, we had around 3 servings of beef cooked and it had too much fat, more like marble and Sandra had to remove all the fat which did consume her time. Surprisingly realizing they only offer beef and pork but no chicken was a red flag for the both of us as Sandra brought it up and the beef being cheap, like cheap bacon meat made me think otherwise that this place after all isn't really worth P490 a head, the dessert was gulaman Pandan and the only dessert they had which was sad and it wasn't that good, that threw me off more, the fish cakes I had were a little too oily and bland as well. So to sum it up, we thought this was worth our money and we apparently weren't satisfied paying that much for such quality food and not to mention my brother telling me this place was even cheaper before around P350 or so or less than that would be worth its price range, paying P490 places this buffet in competition with Samboko Jin that ranges from P600-P1000 in which adding P200+ for lunch can get you far with far more selections and better dessert. This place isn't so bad, the food was okay but questionable quality and the biggest thing is the price for the value in which I deem not worth it at all. Wouldn't really come back here at all, I'd rather try other buffets than this, I actually forgot they had iced tea too, they didn't inform me

(I'm sorry, but I have been stress-eating because of my exams lately)

After my Parasitology finals, Maverick Christopher P, my blockmate and I went here to binge eat all our stress away. Plus, Yas and I have been craving for this for weeks!

We got there at 4:30PM and it turns out they start "dinner" at 5:30. We waited it out! Because we reaaaaaally wanted to eat here. 128557

Our cravings were finally satisfied! We had our beef, our potatoes, chap chae and squid! The food assortment is not as wide as Sambo or Yakimix but for P490 who's complaining? 128514

I just wished they'd work on their "buko pandan" dessert more. It tasted like - water. 128532

Nonetheless, it was all good. 10084

If you're looking for an affordable buffet, I suggest you go here. For a max of P450 you get all the meat you want and unlimited food!

It may not be as fancy as Sambo or Yakimix but hey, whatever works, plus we're really just after the unli-meat.

Tried the samgueopsal here and it was just ok. It feels like the streets in hongdae where it's very casual. Nice to try and always open for your grocery cravings :)

Unlimited pork for 390 and unlimited beef for 490. The side dishes were okay and also unlimited. The downside is that it's buffet style I you have to serve yourself your own side dishes. The Sam gyup sal was good as well as the other dishes they served in the buffet. My only comment is that it's cold. They literally just put the food in a plate and leave it there to get cold. The same can be said about the soup, although the rice was good.

You have to keep calling the waitress attention so you can get a refill on the pork and beef.

Overall, it's good and I'd go back if I get my meat craving again.

Unlimited beef is the bomb. Nuff said. Good value for money.

Tried it here once with my friends because we wanted to try their UNLIMITED MEAT.

Well, we were very disappointed.

It was a Saturday night, and the place was fairly packed but they had only two servers tending to the needs of the customers. It took a looooong time (20 minutes?) for them to bring out the raw meat that we were supposed to grill on our table. The grill also had a leak so oil spilled all over our table. The sides, veggies, plates and utensils at the buffet table kept on running out and the staff took a long time to refill.

The taste of the meat was fair. Sam Won is definitely better, even though it is more expensive there and they don't offer unlimited meat.

When they first opened their food was awesome and fairly cheap.

Soon enough their food got more and more expensive. And i guess they changed their chef cause the food was also a bit different.

But until now, their food is good. Bit expensive, but good.
