The food was absolutely delicious! We hadn't had Korean food in a long time and I must say, the flavours were wonderful, with good portion sizes, and polite staff. My family loved it.
Meets expectations every time!
My new favourite place. I live in Airdrie but will travel here for meals anytime. The staff are wonderful. Very welcoming owner.
Portion size is small. We ordered the dinner combo and still does not come with side dishes. There’s a charge for tea and a charge for tea refill. Service is slow. The seafood pancake is mostly batter, didn’t find many seafood like other places makes them. Jap chae almost looks like a vegetarian jap chae. Owner seems to be very stingy with the ingredients. Extremely poor value for the cost we paid.
Food delicious and came out quickly.
Great service, specials have plenty of food, watch out for the spices.
1st time trying Korean and we all thought it was really good. The staff was really friendly the decor was more upscale than we expected, 2 appetizers and 3 mains fed 2 adults and 2 teenage girls. That plus 2 beers was under $70 so pretty good value too. The glass noodles were our favorite. Ask for the appetizers to come separate from the mains if you want it that way. All came at once for us. Will go back to try more dishes.
Great service. Took great care of us... :-)
Really good food. Decent price. One of our favorite Korean place.
Overall fantastic food , staff and owner is genuinely interested in your dining experience.
Besides their main dishes the appetizers are a must have suck as the squid.
Food was not bad, BBQ were the highlight of the night, don’t order the soy paste hot pot however, it’s extremely salty.
1 Server running around serving 7 table while manager and second server were sitting down and chatting, as one can imagine, results in slow service.
Manager is reluctant to provide additional hot sauce (soul of Korean food), side dishes are served along with entrees instead of at the beginning of the night, feels as if it’s strategically placed so that one would not order refills.
Definitely not one of the best Korean restaurants in town. Items are over-priced; serves smaller portions for the price listed, compared to other Korean restaurants. Did not accommodate special requests (ie. allergies and substitutions). Also, the Korean vegetable side dishes are pre-prepared onto the little dishes prior to arrival, therefore sitting out by the front area all evening. (We went to eat during the last hour of operation and there were still 3 sets of appetizer dishes on the table).
Friendly service and good food. Will return.
The food was really good, but too spicy. It would be nice to have it milder and add spice if desired. The staff were good and helpful but we did have to wait about 20-25 minutes for someone to come back with boxes to pack up leftovers and get the bill.
The servers were very friendly. The service was good, the food was hot and tasty.
Excellent food and friendly staff. Will definitely be back again.
Good food, great service. Tough to try as many things as we wanted to with only two diners.
Delicious food & kind waitress. Will be going back soon!
Excellent food, lovely owner/manager, wait staff was a little overwhelmed with an unexpected rush... definitely coming back.
Went for Valentine’s Day and staff was overwhelmed with the number of patrons. Food was very delicious and owner was very personable as he checked on each table throughout the night. Despite receiving one of our orders late in the meal we were still very pleased with the food and service. Will come back to try again.
Really friendly service, and great bibimbap! Our server was really kind in tending to our drinks and food order during lunch. After serving our bibimbap, he was also really mindful in asking if we wanted any extra sauce. Would definitely return for Korean food again if in the area.
Was a great evening - wine exceptionally well priced. Food so authentic and tasty. We had a very fresh raw salmon salad first. Then a beef hot pot with veggies. All dishes healthy and tasty. We had great conversation with the owner. We will return and would recommend to anyone.
We decided to try Korean food for a change. We arrived and the service was great right from the start. We needed a little help with the menu because we were not familiar with the choices and the waitress was an awesome help. When the dishes arrived, very quickly I might add, the food was hot tasty and plentiful. When we came to pay we had an Open Table cheque which was refused. That would be the only complaint. I think Open Table should let customers know which restaurants will and won’t accept their Cheques.
Best dish was the BBQ. That plus an appetizer would be good to share. We also ordered a hot pot and for two ladies, it was too much.
Good fare and nice staff. Perfect for the price.
Bowls is a recent and welcomed addition to the north end of Calgary, most Korean restaurants are near downtown or south. All of the food is authentic and the servers are very friendly and attentive. Enjoy large platters of yummy bulgogi and tons of banchan (side dishes), wash it down with some soju and you'll leave satisfied. We really enjoyed our experience at Bowls.
Anyone looking for a good korean restaurant, the perfect alternative to t-pot. Servers were very nice! Food was absolutely good.
Came here with my parents as they rarely go out for Korean food besides all-you-can-eat. I wanted them to try authentic Korean food and this place never disappoints! The dishes are delicious, the service is always top notch, and the value you receive is amazing. I like that everything we order is exactly how we wanted it and that the waiters check on us to make sure we have everything we needed. We truly enjoyed ourselves and will be back!
Did not even seat us
We had to go somewhere else
Food was good service was excellent keep it up reasonable price
Great food, reasonable price. The service is also on point. 10/10 would go again.
My friend and I tried this place for the first time and got the combo A for 2-3 people. It was a great way to try everything and get a good value for our food. The selection was amazing as we got all types of BBQ, the seafood pancake, soup, and an omelette dish. Service was great. The waiters made sure that we didn't run out of the side dishes or the tea.
Lots of food; and a great first experience with Korean BBQ. The owner came out and asked us about the meal and how we heard about the place. That was a nice touch. Very clean inside.
Nice decor and owner always willing to explain menu. Reasonably priced good selection and good for lunch or dinner. Worth a try for both experienced and novices.
Celebrating a quiet birthday with family. It was a great experience. We ordered the "B" combo and got more than enough for 4 adults and 2 children. A lot of food. It was excellent dishes and a whole wide variety of food dishes we got to experience and taste. Service was friendly and very helpful. Kids loved the sugar glazed potatoes dish and had no problems to give us more when we asked. We were served several small Korean appetizer dishes as a start then everything else came. Salad, seafood pancake, tofu soup, egg soup, glass noodles, 2 pork, 2 beef, 1 chicken, lettuce and rice. Again more than enough food that we took some home with us. We also met with the owner Tak who came around to talk with us. Food came out very quickly. Ordered some Special Korean rice alcohol which was unique to try but also good. Overall the entire family enjoyed the whole experience. Would recommend this place and would return again.
