Korean BBQ down town - Worst Service Ever
 
Went to the Korean BBQ down town a few days ago

Not sure of the name but its the same owner as the one at commerce Gate korean bbq

it was pretty packed. they do have 2 opening for 6 people

but they decided to put us in a table for 4, meaning 6 people with one Grill.

I asked them about moving us to the table for 6, they said that there is a reservation. mean while some a couple left leaving a table of 4 and a table of 2 right beside each other. I asked if we can move there. they said no. no reason. no nothing.

at this point I am kinda pissed already. if any one have ate Korean BBQ before you know it would take a lot longer to eat if there is only 1 grill shared between 6 people.

what really pissed me off is this guy Jeff. in a black shirt wearing glasses.

we were sitting right beside where they put the sauce and stuff. my girl friend saw some hot sauce and everyone was so busy. so she reached over and got it. (which I am not saying its the right thing to do) at this time Jeff came over, grab the bottle from her and said "If you want anything let me get it for you" in a very rude rude manner. and who would grab things from a customers hand? well that pretty much killed everyone's mood. we just finished eating and left. everyone else that served us was pretty good except for this guy Jeff. so we still left a tip. but let me tell ya. it was the first time that I didnt want to leave a tip.

And look what I found on the net. I have been worried about it for a while but I am pretty sure this guy is not lying

Ok since some of you guys are talking about korean bbq. I'll tell you guys something about commerce Gate korean bbq. After you read this i think some of you will stop going there.

I have a frd that used to work there and told me how bad it is inside and how i should not eat there

-meat/food drops in the kitchen then places back on the tray without cleaning it.
-seafood or any left over food are reused for another table.
-the clamps that you use they only throw in a bucket of water with soap then they wipe it off and give to the customers
-The gloves that they use when they were inside are so dirty it made my frd have skin irritation on his hand.
-last but not least the workers there don't use the utensils/ bowls/ dishes there because it's too dirty.

All of the things i said above are true and is not bs. After reading this you guys can make your decision next time if you want to go or not.

Just posting here so you guys are aware. And i know many places are dirty in the kitchen and as long as you do'nt see/know it its clean but now you know you guys can decide.

lots of restaurants are like this, especially asian ones (chinatown)

i've never really seen a busy chinese restaurant (unless it's new) that isn't disguisting in the kitchen... and the list from that post the guy made, i assume all of them as being common in alot of restaurants. except for "-seafood or any left over food are reused for another table."

i've never had korean bbq, but i assume the seafod is raw... so i actually can see that being common that they "re-use" the seasfood for another table.

and you didnt know this before? i went there once, and right away i knew how bad it was.... from service to foods. all 3 locations are the same.

I actually looked it up and they had problems a few months ago in the midland location

I would have left a negative tip. I've done it before and I'll do it again :P

Its funny how the restaurent is called korean bbq when clearly its not even close. They just bring out the raw meat and grill infront of customer, this aint no freaking bbq. and the place you guys are refering to ones in richmondhill and one in downtown are owned by chinese guy and operated by chinese and cook by chinese in chinise style. THIS AINT NO ****ING KOREAN FOOD.

You wanna taste a real korean bbq? go down to christie/bloor korea town.

or on dufferein by yorkdale.

OR go to yong and steels, on steels, plaza where the swiss challete is. Infront of it, there is a korean BBQ.

oh yeah, korean food aint cheap, not like ALL YOU CAN EAT from chinese knockoffs. probably good bbq for 2 person will run you about 50 bucks.


anyway, WHAT you guys are refering to is knockoff chinese food. NOt korean bbq.

anyway, supershyguy, take that pic down, cause its bothering me when you didnt even get a chance to eat korean food.

I didn't even read your thread, but I've been to that one twice and they had great service both times. It was pretty busy and they managed to bring shit fast, lots of them running around lol.

Edit: And after reading the thing you quoted it's probably true but so what, honestly every place is like that. GO get a job at fast food somehwere and see how it is. Shit when I went to cancun you should see how they "wash" the cups from the drinks...

Big deal..

sirex 02-01-2006 08:39 PM

i never tip in chinese restaurants unless the service is good... there are so many to go to that its not worth tiping...

if you really wanted 2 grills then u shouldn't have sat down at the table with one and told them that... as for shitty waiters.. Just get up and leave.
One time i was at a chinese retaurant.. we ordered our food and after 30 minutes it still hadn't come..... when they finally came to our table we got up and left.

is true the korean bbq at commerce gate is dirty.
my frind used to work there

coolhand 02-02-2006 03:20 AM

My buddy is Korea and he owns a place downtown called BBQ express. Awsome food, I know him and he is a very clean guy and he told me that the helth inspector told him that his is one of 4 restaurants on Queen St. that he would take his family to.

On the south side of Queen a block or two east of Spidina. You guys should stop by there if your looking for a good BBQ place downtown.
