    The kale salad was surprisingly good with a nice balance of acidity and sweetness from the kouchujang sauce. The seafood pancake lack luster because it lack crunchiness and the seafood was not really fresh. The grill meats was of good quality. We ordered the black peppered pork belly and the Kobe brisket. The sides was good and overall, service was good in this place.

    We went to Gumbae before the TD Bank Five Boro Bike Ride. The service was fantastically friendly and helpful. The food was great and well prepared. Overall, we had a really fun time and highly recommend Gumbae to anyone looking for a fun night of Korean barbecue.

    My husband and I recently had dinner at Gunbae for the first time with our friends from out of town. We wanted Korean food but also wanted to stay downtown out of convenience rather than head to K-Town. We had been to a couple of other Korean places in the area and were disappointed, but Gunbae seemed to have good reviews so we decided to give it a chance. We were so pleasantly surprised by the whole experience. The food was authentic and delicious, and the service was really great as well. We had BBQ (pork belly, filet mignon, and marinated kalbi) as well as mandoo, seafood pancake, japchae with ribeye, and hot stone bibimbap with spicy pork. Everything was flavorful and perfectly cooked. They even made us a table side egg jjim, which I have never witnessed before. Very impressive and a nice added touch! I will definitely return to this place soon and would recommend it to others. Oh, and the homemade cucumber soju...YES.

    Unfortunately has taken quite a turn down. Now doesn't allow sharing of BBQ dishes on weekends, the ban chan options are fewer and lower quality than before, and the brisket and pork belly BBQ options were lacking in taste and just felt like gristle and fat. A couple of new staff members seem less service oriented, although most are very nice.

    You might want to ignore our review because unlike most others we were not pleased enough to want to return. The staff was solicitous but we did not enjoy any of the food. Perhaps we prefer other Asian cuisines....

    We had a serious problem w the staff door opening all the time w a terrible vista and horrible ammonia smell which i noticed last time as well. Our waitress told us we cld move table mid meal but then the table was unavailable. Nobody even bought us a round of drinks in apology which I thought was lousy considering how unpleasant it was. Well the place is ok and nice add in the neighborhood but not professional and food is not like in k town
