Good quality was quite good for the price. Only complain is that service is a bit slow when it is full. Lack of staff
Second visit. Ventaliation improved! But it's still like understaffed....very difficult to get staff's attention.
nice food but too smokey inside the restaurant, need to improve ventilation. understaff? difficult to get staffs attention
yummy food and good service! would definitely visit again in future!
Nice bbq meat..wasn't crowded..no waiting time on Friday night
Good food, although it was busy, the staff knew what they should be doing
The food is nice and it is worth trying the BBQ
Had a great time here in terms of food and service. I have been here multiple times, whether is it meat buffet or normal ala carte, food is all good
Had the buffet which was great value - a lot of meat variety and had a lot to eat! Service maybe not so fast as they were rather busy.
The meat is fresh and well marinated and is value for money.
This is repeated visit. Eating our favorite food Gamjatang. Side dishes are good with a few non spicy ones and server is the usual nice Malay girl. It is nice to see familiar place. I am going back tomorrow.
As always, the food never disappoints. would recommend placing a reservation to avoid a long queue!
Had the bbq food this time round. It can get packed, so recommended to make reservation
There were only two staff working their best to serve lots of table. Definitely not short of service, and the staff really know their job well and the place is well organised
Went during off peak hours so not noisy . Food is good but a bit pricey
Good food as usual. Service was good, food quality was just as good. Highly recommended korean food
Not very crowded for a Monday dinner. Pork was ok, but beef could be abit better. Too thinly sliced and difficult to cook as it would fall through the holes òn the grill.
it was a little noisy but bearable. Food is actually quite expensive considering how we had to bbq the meat ourselves. seemed a bit understaff as well. we thought going to HDL seemed cheaper in comparison.
Book a big group for father's day celebration.. Called to confirm too but was given 2 small tables that were separated.. There were 2 groups that came just before and after.. they were given a big table just beside us.. highlighted to manager and she was very rude.. we didn't want to inconvenience the other customers but it was a very unpleasant experience.
I brought my friend to try the Gamjatang, my favorite spicy pork bone soup. The sides dishes are really good, only 1 out of 6 types was spicy. The soup is very good. As usual the service really needs improvement. Overall it is good as the food compensates for the sub standard service.
good food but very understaffed so pls be patient. ordered ala carte.
great food. service was pretty prompt even though the crowd was huge
Food is good as usual. A little busy at the time but the staff was quick to attend to us. Will definitely recommend to reserve regardless of the time that u r going
food was alright but service was not that great. despite responding to customer, the attitude wasn't exactly friendly
Went early at 5pm when the crowd was manageable. Service was prompt and hotplate was changed regularly without prompting.
Service staff were overwhelmed when it was fully booked out. Missing utensils and plates, forgotten orders but kudoos to service staff who tried very hard to keep it altogether. Also double checked that order was not served by kitchen and ensured we were not billed incorrectly.
good value for money. always enjoy bbq at don dae bak.
We went at 5pm, thankfully, to beat the crowd. Even when the place is not crowded, service was laggy, slow and terrible. For our table of 5, they gave us only 1 set of side dish for 3 pax. Hence we kept having to call them to replenish but very slow. When the crowd built up, the service was even worse. They chased us out and did not even wait for us to finish properly. The red head girl hurriedly took out the charcoal and made a mess of ashes on the table. It was really unpleasant. Even when they chased us out, there is no cashier at the counter to handle our bill. People could walk out easily without paying. Food is good but very slow serving. Much improvements are needed.
First time at this branch and it was good as usual!
The food was good but restaurant was short staffed so be patient everyone
Good value and large quantity. We enjoy it very much. Thanks
It was an extremely busy probably due to mother’s day too. But the staff were very responsive despite being so busy. Food is good as usual
I was being ask by Quandoo to input 10 words
Awesome food and great eating experience in the restaurant. Will come again next time
We had a good Kbbq dinner at Don Dae Bak. Yummy food and fast service
Place was very spacious, food portions were very generous. Service staff were attentive and changed our grill every now and then without prompting.
a good choice of barbeque Korean meat set in downtown east
Service was very fast today. The soy pork collar was slightly different, this time round there was pepper which made it even better. Just that somehow, the charcoal heat was stronger today, the plate had to be change almost every round
Food is nice and clean. Staffs are friendly and nice too.
Restaurant very busy service was abit slow. Food overall ok
