They didn't have Galbi Jim, Tteokboki with fish cakes, or ramen which is sad. But I'm not one to complain considering the price for a buffet.

If you're craving for korean food, go to Lee Hak in Pioneer Mandaluyong. Delicious yet affordable for only P329 you can experience Korean food at its finest. You can also grill tender meat at cuts you ca'n't resist. Try doing wrapping a piece or strip of grilled meat, adding fried garlic to it then wrap it in a lettuce. Then you have your swargyupsal wrap. 🇰🇷🍽12807712807612787312786010084

Had a sumptuous dinner here, this is our first time this night.

Well first impression the place is big, 2 storey and well spacious on the ground floor, but very smelly upon entry. A mix of shrimp paste and apple and it will stick to your clothes even in your hair. the place has a mini mart where you can find instant noodles, ice cream, and pocky for sale. The place is quite presentable if they can manage to maintain the cleanliness of the whole area specially at the ground floor. Upper floor is quite fine. Waiting time is 15 minutes if you don't have a reservation just like us.

Upper floor has VIP rooms where you can seat if there is no available couches and tables at the living area, but you will not mind because it's very near at the buffet tables.

Just be aware of their policies, strictly no left over they will charge you php 500 literally. So far I noticed that every tables are empty plated. And your time to eat is 2 hours only, that is the reason the turn over is fast even the parking.

Refilling of foods are fast. Lots of variety in pork. Be mind that the main menu here is samgyeopsal. So for those samgyeopsal fanatic like me, it's worth the visit here, for weekends 399 per head with unlimited ice tea too. That's real deal! 3 kinds of seasonal fruits available. The fried chicken is recommended masarap talaga! 128077🏻

There's japchae, but I don't like it it's blunt, pale looking, lack of veggies and topping, puro vermicelli Lang. Gyosa was ok. different kinds of soups, fried bangus strips is ok, pork barbecue was ok too, other viand I did not taste because I'm craving for samgyeopsal only. In fairness compare to sambokojin lettuces here are clean and not wilted unlike in sambokojin puro bulok! There is beef strips and different kind of slices pork. There's tempura I did not taste it cause it looked dull and starchy. You can request for eggs and pancakes. There's longganisa too this restaurant serve mix of Korean-Filipino food so don't be shock. Some banchans like kimchi are available. Sorry the only dessert they have is the fruits! And no galbitang! Still I will comeback here whenever I feel like eating samgyeopsal. Tama Lang naman yung dami NG menu, kase Pag masyado madami Hindi mo NA din naman matitikman lahat!

Share ko lang :

Just did not have a good start, since we have no plan of eating out. I was just wearing pambahay. Short and shirt and slippers. Good thing i have an extra shirt and a pair of shoes to make myself more presentable. Since i was in shorts and shirt this waiter insisted on sitting us iat the far end. I have told him that i was assigned table number 2, while he was guiding us i was asking him if i could take the tables near the buffet. He said it was reserved( eh wala naman tao) Just because i was just in almost house clothes he placed us in the far end. Luckly i saw the desk reception officer and asked her to transfer her and she asked us what was the table number assigned to us, as i said 2 she carried our plates and gave us the right table near the buffet. I was very upset. I was about to complain but i cant remember the waiter anymore.

I am never going to eat here again!!!

To begin with, this place was filthy, you can look at the photo I uploaded and you'd see that they just used newspaper to cover up the oil under our table.

You'd see in the photo, shots of the buffet. It takes forever for them to refill the dishes. It's as if they don't want you to eat at all. I was there for only an hour cause I couldn't stand the place. The only thing they refilled was the Chap Chae. The trays that were empty when I arrived were still empty before I left.

Service was no good too. I ordered soda and had to follow-up 4 times to get it. And when you ask them when they are going to refill, their standard answer would be "It's coming".

The meat they serve is more of fat that beef, and just look at where they store it.

Make sure you're not going anywhere if you dare try to eat this place, cause you'll smell like oil when you leave cause they don't have a good exhaust system.

The restaurant smells like a pet shop. They have the worst service. They kept on accepting diners even if they don't have enough servers. They gave us a portable stove where the piping hot pan almost slid down the floor because the pan was not compatible with the stove. Will never eat here again. Worst dining experience ever.

I found out about Lee Hak a couple of months ago and was finally able to give it a try today with my friend, Jade. In contrast to its positive reviews, we didn't like this place. We've been to numerous Korean buffet restaurants before and we've never had this kind of experience.

Staff - 2/5 (Not accommodating)
Ambiance - 2/5 (I appreciate the fact that their place is airconditioned but they should have a ventilation system so customers won't smell like smoke when they leave)
Food - 2/5 (We came here for the pork, which did not meet expectation. They did not serve fresh pork, as the meat already has a stench so we weren't able to finish it. The egg rolls are salty. Their mandu and japchae though are really good. Lemon water was nice, but their iced tea didn't taste like iced tea, more like lemon water with sugar and coloring. Meh.)
Overall - 2/5 (Don't think we'll return, nor recommend this to any of my friends)

I was looking for a restaurant near our place to celebrate a special day and came across Lee Hak (via Looloo) since I was also craving for some Korean Tepanyaki and gave this restau a shot. I wasn't expecting much since the buffet costs Php 322 per plate but I was so surprised with the variety of Korean Dishes they offer for the buffet. They serve marinated chicken/pork and the regular one for the Tepanyaki, it was sooooo GOOD that we only availed for the grill and a plate full of Kimchi! Will definitely go back, would recommend this place to satisfy your korean food craving! Will try bibimbap and kimbap next time 🤓

My daughter went here
Today for cold noodle.. Looks good! Noodles tasted
Like moth balls. She had it packed and paid for the bill. I don"t like to use the word hate and I tried it when she got home... I dislike it.

Jgh from here! Lee Hak is a Korean Buffet in Pioneer just across Unilab. :) Idk if it's just for today but sad to say there is no beef for the Samgyeopsal :( It's all pork and chicken. :( Then drinks are only juices. :( And then lots of people are eating in here maybe because it's a Sunday... & Then since we were 14-15 pax and reserved a week ago we were in a separated room.

We had two tables with grillers but unfortunately the other griller wasn't working which is bad and an inconvenience for us. Another is that the aircon was dripping water so it kinda flooded in the part where the aircon was located. We were cautious on that part so we wouldn't slip.

Overall experience would be 11088110881108811088️ I didn't expect much cause their price of korean buffet is just affordable. 9786️ But some foods were delish!

Loved cooking my own food and eating it like in those korean telenovelas. There were a lot of people lining up and confirming their reservation, but you wouldn't notice them especially when you're eating.

Celebrating Chinese New Year in a Korean bbq restaurant! 128517

After working out the whole day, we decided to splurge ourselves with MEAT. And so we're here.

The resto is not open for lunch, however the buffet upstairs is open for a price of Php322/pax. It was sulit. 128077🏻

We had organic pork belly and marinated chicken for our korean bbq. Also, I like the beef bulgogi and yangchow rice (yes omg rice heaven). I also like their onion rings and calamari! 10084

One thing though, the staff were not around. We keep on looking for them when we need them. Plus they don't refill the dishes attentively.

I didn't get the chance to take a picture of the buffet itself cos I was too hungry to function 128514 We dined in here on December 23, 2015 for our company's Christmas lunch since we were to busy we opted to try the buffet here rather than going to KPUB at the Fort since this was much nearer to our office. We got the rate per head at a discount (P435) as it was a weekday. There's a wide spread in this buffet considering that it is less than 500 pesos which pushed me to giving this place 4 stars. Taste wise I would've just rated this a 3 since I only liked around 5/20 (?) of the food items available.

Don't forget to get a lot of meat from the grilling station. That's the meat you wrap in the lettuce with some veggies. Most of their marinades taste similar. Sweet and a bit savory. I was happy to find lechon/liempo-chon in the buffet since it's not something I would expect from a Korean/Japanese buffet but it's something that I like eating so that made me happy HAHA (yes I eat a lot of fat 128547) they also have unique items in their tempura station such as cali Maki in tempura batter. I wasn't able to taste it because I was too full but my sisters kept coming back for it so I guess it was good. Their only dessert is ice cream but they do have like 4 flavors of it. So I guess it's okay plus the fruit slices they have those too.

They also have karaoke if I'm not mistaken and they have private rooms that can also accomodate 10-15pax.

The bathroom isn't that clean so 128078 for that.

Overall, friendly staff, good food and good company gives this experience a 4 star rating 128522

For 499 unlimited Sumgyapsal and order all you can from their menu, plus the fact that they have free unlimited appetizers, it's really best value for your money.

It's our first time to eat here... the first serving of BBQ set A of Chadolbagi and Samgyeopsal was ok. The next order we had was the Ebi & Teka Maki and the Salmon Temaki. Both were good! Now here's the problem, when ordered another set of Chadolbagi they gave us different kind of meat. The look and taste was very different from what we ate just less than 10minutes ago. The waitress even insisted that it is Chadolbagi that they serve. She has to call someone and they replaced it, but yet again a different kind of meat/part. Taste is also very different. Both were harder and the other one can be compared to a rubber. Comes the dessert, my wife ordered fruits (mango) was served with 2 sides of mango. The mango was sweet! So She finished it all! Time for me to order my mango. They said we already consumed the free fruits per table!!! Service was quite okay but several times they served us something we didn't order.. Ambiance was really good as like you really time hopped to Korea or Japan.
