    Tobang Santa Clara exterior decor

    Why did we dine here? – Tobang is located next door to the Korean restaurant Kunjip in a Santa Clara strip mall full of Korean merchants. We had enough soup and noodles there, and wanted some Korean BBQ.

    Insider Tip – This restaurant gets crowded, come early.

    Cuisine – Korean
    Location – Santa Clara
    Opened – 2009

    Tobang Santa Clara interior decor

    Service – Tobang had reasonable service, with a friendly waitress. You do have to hail down to get things done.
    Verdict – Tobang serves up very good Korean food. Oakland and Santa Clara are ground zero for some of the best Korean food in the San Francisco Bay Area. Be sure to check out Sura and Pyung Chang in Oakland.
    Next door is soup, noodle restaurant, Kunjip. Jang Su Jang is more famous and has nicer interior decor but we like the food here better.

    Signature Dishes – BBQ Meats.

    Tobang’s Menu is not large but includes all the familiar items including BBQ, Bi Bim Bab, etc.


    Tobang Santa Clara panchan

    Banchan included 7 decent items.

    Tobang Santa Clara seafood pancake

    Korean Seafood Pancake ($11.99) was surprisingly excellent. Nice thin and crisp crust, tasty seafood flavors.

    Tobang Santa Clara galbi BBQ short ribs

    BBQ Beef Ribs Kalbi ($16.99) did not come out of the kitchen sizzling hot, but still proved to be very good. Nice flavors including a hint of fruitiness. They also included pickled daikon to wrap the meat in.

    Tobang Santa Clara seafood Bi Bim Bab

    Seafood Bi Bim Bab in a clay pot ($12.99) was also very good. The waitress recommended the seafood one over the beef one, a really good suggestion.

    OK: (Order if you like this dish)

    Pans: (We would not reorder these dishes)
