Finally made it there last night. Great stuff, highly recommended.

The menu lists a number of different items for you to grill yourself at the table, as well as various noodle dishes and soups. We opted for grilled stuff only, and had prime skirt, two orders of prime rib-eye cap, "kobe" (wagyu) short rib, pork cheek, and prime rib-eye tataki.

The table next to us started off with pork belly, which looked awesome and is on the list for the next visit.

All the meat was great, though overall I preferred the rib-eye to the short rib. The short rib was quite fatty. The rib-eye's marbling was amazing to see. It looked like good quality toro.

Pork cheek was really great. Came out topped with thinly sliced green onion and black pepper, and grilled up very sweet in flavor. It was served with two dipping sauces, one spicy and bitter, the other heavy with sesame oil and a little sweeter.

Total bill w/ an order of vegetables, two bowls of rice, tea, and tip was $70. Quite a bargain, considering the quality and abundance of the food.

The place is on Convoy, in the same lot as Sakura and OPH. Definitely worth a visit.
