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!

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.

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.

Big sign at the resto facade says "Legendary Korean Restaurant" but it was such a disappointing experience. Food was not even good. Nothing legendary with this Korean resto.

Better food and meat quality. Compared to Masan or Korean Garden, this place is disappointing.

I'm into Korean food especially BBQ and i so recommend this place for all korean bbq lovers out there!

I've been here for like 3 or 4 times and Leehak has never disappointed us. From their nice staff to their delicious food, this is my favorite korean bbq place. And value for money? Yes!

We always order our favorite, Samgyupsal in which you need to order atleast two so you could enjoy diggin' into it. Once ordered was made, numerous banchan/side dishes will be served to you. Kimchi, spinach, caramelized anchovies, kimchi cucumber, etc are served as appetizers/attribute to your samgyupsal experience and they're refillable. Salad, Kimchi Pancake/Pajeon and Seafood jjigae are also served aside. You can already fill yourselves with these banchan. Steamed egg is also served so you could top it on your rice.

We love the samgyupsal and that is the reason why we always come back (and also for the numerous bachan they serve for free). 2 servings is enough for three people but since we always come in pair, we still have enough meat for another companion. The meat is fresh as well as the lettuce which comes with it.

The place has a large space which can accomodate a lot of korean bbq enthusiasts. The staff are nice especially the korean owner whom we often talk to and she knows a little tagalog! They also offer buffet which costs around 500 for lunch and around 600 for dinner and i think their buffet selection has a wide variety of korean and japanese cuisine. You can also all the meat you can eat!

Food - 5
Value for money - 4.5
Staff - 4.5
Place - 4.5

I recommend this to korean bbq lovers, kpop fans, and to everyone who loves food!

We love eating here when we're craving for a variety of flavors. Their side dishes are good and plenty. My fave main dish is the pork belly. I should try other dishes next time though. :)

Disclaimer: not a review for Lee Hak but for the Japanese restaurant, Moku, above it (same management, I think)

Food is decent, pwede na?

Service sucks though. See this photo? Everyone else received AND finished their orders already except for my mom and I. It's been more than an hour. They kept telling us "ah, padating na po yun!" when they didn't even seem to have followed it up. We ordered beef teppan, medyo 10 minutes lang lutuin yun. The waitress who took our order merely wrote it on her palm (if she has sweaty hands edi nawala agad yun) which is probably why she forgot about the teppan. We also asked her to bring us more cups for the house tea (isa lang dala niya with the tea, there were 7 of us p l s ate gurl isip-isip pag may time 128553), but we had to remind her pa until she finally brought more. The manager wasn't of any help either. When we told him that our order's taking forever, he merely said "cancel nalang?" Hahaha he didn't even offer to just give it to us for free to appease us. So my dad had the waitress go to the nearby misono table and made her tell the chef to finally start cooking our teppan. So after almost two hours, we received our order. It wasn't very good either. The beef part they used had a lot of fat, and the meal was mostly just vegetables. Meh.

Never again because they don't train their employees very well, if they train them at all. 128516

they claim to be the ph #1 korean resto.
I really can't say...

went there last Saturday for dinner. big space and they have a second floor dining area.

place was about 10% full. we came around 830pm.

same cooking setup as yedang (charcoal and an retractable exhaust).

price was average korean resto. typical.

you get free soybean paste stew and steamed egg if you order pork or beef galbi (?).

galbisal (rib finger us angus beef), chadolbagi (us angus brisket), and samgyeopsal (pork belly) was average. nothing special.

beef stew tasted like cow label. hehe

+1 star because grace lee was there. so beautiful in an all white dress. lol

First time to eat at this resto with my officemates. The food was okay(considering that Koreans are healthy buffs). But I loved their Kimchi(better than the Kimchi we usually buy at the grocery) and Soy Bean Paste(?). Also, you'll get 5 free side dishes(which you can refill for free 2 times) when you order 2 of their Barbecue Sets.

Advantage of this resto is that, it's owner is present and roaming around to ask customers regarding their stay in the resto, how's the taste of their food, etc. A 127775 for that!

All I wanted was to enjoy a delicious, flavor packed bowl of chicken ginseng. But unfortunately, I was really disappointed with my order of samgyetang. Sure, the meat was so tender they fall off the bones. The dish has just the proper amount of rice - not soupy, not too thick. But the flavor just was not there. I think even an ordinary chicken arroz caldo would have fared better.
I did not give 1 star because the generous portions of side dishes are really good. Servers are prompt and courteous. Besides, I don't want to shut them out because of a single poor dish. Will still go back to try the others.

Authentic Korean food. We had more than the normal 5-dish appetizer. There was salad, soup, and dessert! Owner hands-on and very friendly. Prices are very reasonable.
