Korean Grill House

24 Jan

Korean Grill House offers an unique twist on the concept of all-you-can-eat. Their take on all-you-can-eat is that raw meat items arrive at your table and you cook the food yourself on a grill. The meal becomes a bit longer than the traditional buffet style but the experience is worth it and grilling turns out to be loads of fun.



Meat choices include pork, chicken, beef, fish fillet and squid. For an additional charge, the menu also offers ox tongue and liver, salmon, lamb, shrimp and beef ribs.  As well, the all-you-can-eat meal includes rice, soup and a variety of Korean style vegetables such as pickled bean sprouts and radish, Kimchee and bean curd. Refills on any of these items are requested by filling out a small piece of paper left at your table during the beginning of the meal and presenting the paper to a server.

Here is a useful tip: during your meal, if you have been grilling for a while, an accumulation of burnt bits will have collected on your grill which causes new items to burn faster.  Ask your server for a new grill and watch how they change your grill, it’s so simple but clever at the same time.

The regular all-you-can-eat lunch menu is $8.99 and they also have a night owl special, at the same price, from 10PM to close.  At dinner hour, the all-you-can-eat is $13.95 and includes a few more meat items than lunch.

Korean Grill House also offers more traditional dishes such as Ramen noodles, spring rolls, dumplings and Bibm Bahb which is a bowl of rice topped with your choice of meat or vegetable and garnished with a fried egg. Most lunch items are $10 or less and almost all of the dinner dishes are no more than $15.

There are five locations across Toronto and its surrounding areas.  I have been to two of their five locations (Yonge/Bloor and Yonge/Dundas) and the interior of both restaurants have a modern and trendy feel to them.  As well, they can become quite busy on weekends during dinner service.

The prices and quality at Korean Grill House are more than reasonable and if you are in the mood for a leisurely and unique dining experience, try their all-you-can-eat option.
