Poor Quality
Submitted Wednesday, December 2, 2009 - 12:06am [Dine in]

I have been to this restaurant many times since they open. It seems their quality is getting down and down every year. I went there last Saturday for lunch, and my friend and I order $20 for 4 dishes. The price is really cheap, so we did not expect dishes will be same amount as reqular menu. We order pork Bulgogi, Korean Style Miso Soup, Spicy Rice Cake, Grilled Monk Fish ($2 extra), and Seafood Pancake. First dish is Bulgogi, it served by pork belly instead of pork sirlon showed on menu, and pork belly with skin and pork hair. Korean Miso Soup only served less than half full, and the taste was poor. Grilled fish was good, and spicy rice cake is great and excellent. We only got 3 side dishes.

It is a great idea to have this lunch sampler menu to let people try many flavours, and customers will know what they like to order from regular menu next time. However, it is very disappointed that Kyung Bok Palace did not keep the same quality as it from reqular menu. We complaint the pork bulgogo to the waitress, but she said may be kitchen can not find sirlon pork.

Two weeks ago, I order Kimchi Gigae to go. Once I got home, I found out they did not give me side dishes.

Before I wrote this review, I just saw their inspection report. It looks this restaurant's kitchen is not very well organized. I do not think I will go back again.

No Air Conditioning on the Vancouver's hotest day
Submitted Friday, July 31, 2009 - 11:42pm [Dine in]

Very disappointed that their air conditioner was not working very well on July 30 which was one of those hot days. Poor waiter and waitress were so sweaty, and we (customers) felt like to be cheated. I wished they would put a sign for telling people about their air conditioner's trouble at door.
When we were leaving, we saw one technician guy arrived to look at the problem. Too late!!

They put too much MSG
Submitted Friday, February 13, 2009 - 10:26pm [Dine in]

We went there two weeks ago at 7pm for AYCE. Service was slow, but it was ok since there is only one waiter there. That waiter was very good and move fast.
We just realized they put lots of MSG with there meat once we came back home. I felt so thirsty entire night. We had tofu soup and pork bone with potato soup, that were worst I have never seen in my life. No tast for tofu soup, and pork bone potato soup tast like instant noodle soup. Beef was too soft and no texture, it seemed they put lots of tender powder and MSG. If they have fresh beef, then I think they do not need to marinate by that way.
I may not go there next time, since we still have few good Korean restaurant in Richmond. This one offer cheaper price, but I think food quality is important as well.

Disappointed
Submitted Sunday, March 18, 2007 - 11:29pm [Dine in]

My friend and I went there tonight since we like the other Kyung Bok Goong in Richmond. We got a table by window and ordered bbq beef. We saw owner used electricity tenis rack to catch flys in kitchen area for over 30 minutes, and we wished the dead fly will not drop into our food.
Finally we got our food served, we found their is a very tinny bug (or fly) on our lettus. Waitress was so surprised when my friend point out that to her. Since I am in restaurant industry, and I can tell their beef is not very freshly prepared on the same day or a day early. However, taste is still ok. Their side dishes are good. The beef doesn't come with rice, so we need to order seperated. They couldn't serve ice water because they said water quality is not good to serve. Well, I could tell when I saw a fly on my lettus.
However, service is good and fast. They even change our bbq rack twice during our meal.

very good food
Submitted Sunday, March 18, 2007 - 11:13pm [Dine in]

This place is very busy all the time. I only need to complain is taking too long to get a table on weekends.
This place very generous for food and side dishes, especially they change their side dishes often time by time. Service is very impressive and fast. I like their seafood hotpot combo which is surely enough for 4 people. This is the only Korean restaurant I always enjoy.
