Korean
At Kook, we are CRAZY about BBQ and we are here to set a new standard to your Korean BBQ experience. Serving only premium meats, every table is equipped with the Rolls-Royce
of smokeless grills (Shinpo Systems). The restaurant is perfectly air balanced with the best ventilation system to ensure you smell the same way you came in.

We want to ensure that we please your eyes as much as your taste buds. Our interior design is themed around the ancient five core elements (Gold, wood, water, fire, earth). From our golden ring of banchan to the cherry wood bench you are sitting on, you will find this theme throughout our restaurant. Let our energy channel your inner chef to take control and cook, or simply sit back and let our BBQ experts take over.

Our dedicated team is here to serve you with one goal in mind:
“A Korean BBQ dining experience you won’t soon forget!”

    Food was amazing. We ordered the combo for 4 people for a group of 5 and still had so much left over. I love all the sides they provide as well. It’s fun getting to cook your own meat, a great way to bond. The service was great, very friendly and helpful.

    Brought my husband and friends for lunch. Even my picky husband was impressed and enjoyed the food. Friends thought the food was good and the meats were marinated well. All the staff were friendly and attentive. Will return again.

    Upon arrival to reservation. Greeted by friendly server. The ordering part was helpful for party of 6. We ordered the combination for 6 people. The meat was very fresh. Our server was very polite, changed grill when it got dirty. No problem refilling our banchan. Great ambience, lively, not terribly noisy. From start to finish. Excellent service. No complaints at all.

    My family and I love this place. We live in Dubai and when we come into town we make sure that we come at least twice on each trip. The food and service are excellent, bathrooms are clean and it’s very centrally located. It’s a must visit for all considering Kook.
