Very good, but not like I recall from the earlier days. What happened to the pan-chan? It is so limited now... :-( Other restaurants nearby are bringing in the crowds, and with Manna losing some o...f its original strengths, I am afraid it may not be able to last very long. See More

SD Manna BBQ is the best possible Korean BBQ place I've ever eaten in my entire life! Better than Teguki too! Price is steep but for all you can eat steak and seafood, it's very much well worth it. Th...e experience was awesome although this place gets pretty much packed all the time, so if you don't want to wait call in before actually coming in or heading there before meal times is the best option. The one thing that they should provide for guest though is wifi. See More

Delicious food! The only side I missed was the carrot & daikon salad. Wait time was about 10 minutes, not bad for 5pm on a Saturday.

The only reason I'm giving this place 4 stars is because the floors were sticky, slippery, and kinda greasy--that was just gross, honestly. It's a super busy place with people coming in and out, and ...the staff running around like chickens with their heads cut off. I realize they've all got a ton of things going on, but they need to dedicate more time to wiping down the floors. I'd recommend changing those old floors to something more modern, and easier to clean.

The food is primo! Great quality, and amazing flavor! The novelty of cooking it yourself does not wear off, and there's always a lady who sometimes comes by and cuts the meat into smaller pieces, making it easier to cook. She's not a fan of smiling, but she's an expert with those damn scissors. But again, as far as the raw food is concerned: not much seasoning is necessary. It's very flavorful and savory! And it cooks quickly on those round cooking covers, which do get replaced often. The price is reasonable as well, because it is all-you-can-eat. Korean BBQ is not something you do every day--at least for me. I love coming here once or twice a year with friends. Great place for sure! But it does need a few upgrades.

Everything was pretty good but the shrimp was so disgusting nobody wanted to eat it. Farm raised from where they are so crammed in tanks they eat their own waste. They tasted disgusting. I also did...n't enjoy the spicy chicken which was over marinated so became rubbery. Stick with the basic good beef and you'll be very happy. See More

OK so...The food was bomb! We got the S1 for all the koby! So the food was great! I would give it a 5 star but one of the servers said we could take the small leftovers in a napkin...koo...but then a ...lady ran up and said "what are you doing?" Very rudely then when we explained that a worker said we could she said..."NO! We don't do that, next time don't leave food uneaten like that!!" Wtf!?!?! Policy is policy but rudeness is a big nono in customer service! So..3 stars it is! See More
