Kook Korean BBQ
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!”
The service was okay. However, we had to ask a server about the meat, and the cooking process (how long to cook). We were waiting for the tea for half an hour. Our server totally forgot about us, we had to ask the other server to bring the tea. I did not tip very well, as the service was slow and unsatisfying. Will not come back.
Owner was very attentive and great selection of all you can eat side dishes. Great value.
Great music playlist and high quality cuts of meat
We really enjoyed our meal at Kook Korean. The food was delicious as were the drinks. I hope they add a dessert option or two in the future. I appreciated that they added an extra egg to replace the beef in one of the dishes for me too. Great experience!
Good food and great service!
Definitely will recommend to friends.
An great dining experience including food, ambiance, and service. This is a place to return to.
We went there for my birthday and we had a good night with good food and good service, thank you Kook.
First meal out since December 2020 due to COVID and it was EPIC!
It was our first time at this restaurant. We were searching for a Koren BBQ restaurant in replace of our regular one, since it was closed due to COVID.
The online reservation system was good, and nice that it sent reminder and confirmation.
We had the Combination B, the Koran Spicy Fried Chicken and the Beef Bibimbap. The Chicken and the Bibimbap were good. The BBQ is the BBQ, same as everywhere else. Overall, the food and service were good.
However, the music was so loud that we couldn't carry a conversation without yelling at each other. If felt like we were in a rock convert. With the loud music pounding the whole time, it took away the enjoyment of the food.
Also, the seatings were very uncomfortable, with the wood benches. Most of us got up with lower back pain when we finished the dinner. All the Korean and Japanese restaurants that we have been to all have cushions when they have wood benches. Can the restaurant not afford to offer that to the customers?
The overall experience made me hesitate to go back even though the food was good.
Great place to eat! Very good value! Will bring other family members soon.
Kook is our favorite Korean BBQ in the city. The only thing that tops the food is the service. Alice is THE BEST manager. We always come and hope to see her. She is so lovely and just elevates our dining experience. We will be back for sure!!!
Third time eating here and I’m already looking forward to going back. Got the combo B for four and one side share. So much food we got to take leftovers home! All for a really reasonable price when split between the 4 of us. The service was great, music great and food delicious.
Service was great! Selection was good. Presentation was great. Will definitely go back
Wow! How amazing this meal was. We ordered the 6 person combo. Lots of great tasting meats and the fact that there are over 15 side dishes (unlimited) that accompany it is top notch! All the meat was pretty fresh and very flavourful. Great place!
Delicious food and attentive waiters/waitresses. Would definitely return ans recommend!
excellent service,premium food quality, we like the layout of side dishes.
We’ve been wanting to go to Kook for awhile now and it did not disappoint! The servers are so friendly and the food is also delicious! Highly recommend getting the combos since it comes with the side dishes that make a beautiful spread!
We got the Premium Meat Combo A to share between 4 people. Added bibimbap and Kkhanpungi as well. The meat is pretty tender, and you can ask for extra orders of lettuce as well! The Galbi was definitely my favourite and their bibimbab was so good too (very tasty!).
This was a great experience. The food was awesome and very fresh. The staff is very friendly and the restaurant is in my neighborhood!! Which is a bonus. I will definitely go back again!
Modern bbq place using down drifting ventilation, which is a very good experience without over smoking. The smoky smell always follow you home from older bbq restaurant!
Service sure is top rated.
Price also very reasonable.
Quality of the meat is very good too .
Always go back for family function .
Good job, Kook
Great service! Great staff! Awesome and delicious food!
Always always always a good time at Kook. Excellent service and amazing food at a great price. Energetic atmosphere is a plus.
This restaurant is an amazing place! The food is delicious and service was impeccable. Can’t wait to go back!
Dinner at Kook is ALWAYS amazing but this time it was just incredible. The food was wonderful and Alice made our night. I would plan to go for dinner when she is working simply because she made our experience elevated to an even higher level. Great food and even better service!
Heyman and Andy are awesome!
Quick, friendly, fast and attentive servers. Tasty food.
Great for birthday
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!!!
Great service, atmosphere and high quality Korean BBQ!
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
