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).

“A Korean BBQ dining experience you won’t soon forget!”
Quick, friendly, fast and attentive servers. Tasty food.
so..... as Korean BBQ goes in vancouver I would say awsome!! we need more kbq !
the meat was insanely well marinated . short ribs and bulgogi were perfect. And the menu will bring you back for more... good service, nice staff if your on the east side
and need some meat this is the place to go!!!
The food was delicious and lots of food for the price! Will definitely be coming back
Really amazing food - we got the combo for four, and it was more than we needed! Such awesome quality, and amazing side dishes. We also got the Japchae made vegetarian, seafood pancake and tteokkbokki. All of it was phenomenal!
The only critique was that our servers didn’t come and change the grill for us, so we had some pretty charred meat, but I’m chalking it up to the fact that we were non-stop grilling.
Will definitely be going back to enjoy an amazing night out.
Even though I mentioned it was for a birthday and person who had a birthday was pregnant, no special treatment was offered.
It’s always a blast to go to Kook, especially when it comes to needing to blow off steam during a pandemic.
Everyone from the servers to the manager/owner are very polite and make this my favourite Korean restaurant. Definitely recommend!
Very taste, nice place, very good service. I really recommend it
I attended this restaurant with friends. We originally wanted to go to KOOK on a Saturday and we were told there was an hour wait. We accepted this, and 15 minutes before the hour was ending, we were told it would be another 45mins. We decided to go somewhere else and rebooked for a table on Tuesday. During this time we booked online and touched base with restaurant to indicated we had a large party that needed to be split in half. I was told I would get a call back, but never did so I had to call the restaurant again. Finally they confirmed our large group reservation with split tables. Then I got a call again from KOOK to confirm separate tables. Our issues is lots of miscommunication between staff members and what is being told to customers.
Thank goodness the food and service made up for the lack of communication. The price of food was good and we were able to split between our large group for a fair price. Everything tasted amazing and definitely enjoy the ‘vibes’ of the restaurant. We were glad we gave it a second try and we will be back... with a reservation this time
The food was great but the music was too loud. However when I asked the customer representative, he turned it downed. Thank you.
Good food, pretty good service. But very loud music.
Combo meals were great and the portions for 4 people were adequate enough for 5 people to feel satisfied with 2 extra dishes on the side (one pancake and a meat). Table size was small and felt cramped but they were prepared in terms of covid-19 precautions and included hand sanitizer, socially distanced seating, employees wearing masks, and provided wipes for the table for cleaning. It was a great experience overall.
All good except abit smelly due to bbq. Should have better exhaust fan.
Fantastic food, awesome ambience. Love the wall art.
Good service, good food ,good distance ,will refer frds and family
I love korean food and my favourite restaurant is sura !
I think kook needs more quality and more options menu
We celebrated our friend’s birthday there, it was really a good experience. Foods were really delicious and service was good.
The food was severed really fast. I would definitely come back to this restaurant.
Father’s Day Celebration
first time in kook korean bbq like the food and service it’s was a nice idea with the Ringer on the table so you don’t have to call for the waiter...👍🏼 definitely coming back 😘
fun and lively atmosphere for drinking. Food was good, also because they give multiple selections of side dishes.
Only complaint would be the size of the tables are quite small, not ideal when eating kbbq because you need two hands to make lettuce wraps. Max 6 people can fit but quite tight.
Great value and great service from the staff. Best selection of unlimited side dishes for a Korean BBQ restaurant and their combos offer more than enough food for the number in your party. Highly recommend for group dinners!
Delicious food and great service! Love the bell system!
Great food. Great setting! Daebak!🥰🥰🥰. Highly recommended.🤟😍😍😍
Clean, Modern, Good food and good vibes. Awesome ventilation, you wont smell like crap when you get home!
Polite staff. Great service. Nice ambience. Every detail looked after, right down to immaculate bathrooms
Love this place. Food is so yummy. Excellent services. Very convenient location. Lots of free parking. Must come again with family and friends.
We came here for my mom’s birthday and it is our second time at this restaurant. Service is excellent and the food is very good as well. We ordered the 4 person combo and it gives us some variety. We also ordered the spicy tofu soup and the deep fried chicken which were very good. We will definitely come back.
Great food! Most worthy Korean bbq restaurant in Vancouver. But hope they can improve their services
We celebrated 3 family member’s birthday at Kook the other day! I made reso for 630pm, we didn’t get seated till 7pm, however, the staff was friendly and apologetic. The food was incredible and the presentation was great :). We had 8 people, so ordered combo C + one of the spicy hotspot.
Everyone was quite pleased (except for my nephew, he loved the meat but didn’t really like the rest lol). The bill was economical as well! We will definitely be back to try other menu items!
Spent Valentines at this place, amazing restaurant
First time at KooK and we were blown away. The food was amazing but what I always look for is service which was outstanding. They treated our table like we were celebrities. Hands down the best service I have ever had, even better than fine dining restaurants. I will definitely be back.
Fun to cook on BBQ. Trendy and Hip ambience, decor. High energy
Love the variety of food they have. They are very quick and efficient in their services. I appreciated the storage for jackets and bags underneath the seats. The staff are friendly too.
Celebrate my son’s birthday at the restaurant. Staff are nice and food is good. Even people waiting for the table, they still provide good service to give us time to cut the cake and not rushing us to go. Will be back!
Great place for a group
Great vibe, friendly servers, delicious food. Korean bbq is always a little pricey so it was average pricing.
Went for my brother's bday, staff were great and super friendly! thanks!
Unfortunately Kook wasn’t able to serve alcohol when I was there. However, their customer service was great and all non-alcoholic beverages were provided for free. For 5 people we ordered the 4 person bbq combo and a seafood pancake. The number of banchan and variety was impressive. The meat was fresh. We did think it wasn’t a lot of food as compared to other korean bbq places. As well the tofu soup was bland. The seafood pancake was full of imitation crab which wasn’t the most pleasant — it was edible but I could do without the imitation crab. All in all, the experience wasn’t bad. The ambience and presentation of the food was great but the flavour of the food could improve.
Great place for Korean Bbq! A little overpriced. Great for special occasions.
Although the taste is good, it is still pricy compare to other Korean bbq places.
