Service – Genwa had decent service, probably far better than the Korean restaurants in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Verdict – Genwa Korean BBQ serves up the goods, and in a beautiful room. one of the finest Korean we’ve had. Hit it if you are into Korean and in LA.

The best Korean we have found in our SF Bay area includes: Tobang in Santa Clara, Pyung Chang in Oakland, and Gooyi Gooyi in San Jose.
Go for lunch if you are on a budget. Portions are huge.

Genwa Food Picks:

Genwa Korean BBQ LA Banchan

Ridiculous number of Banchan items – 24 plus rice paper and daikon wrap. Steamed egg, which you can refill twice. Excellent soup and salad.

Genwa Korean BBQ LA Prime Galbi

Prime Galbi ($31.95) We let them cook it in the kitchen. Prime short ribs marinated in a house special sauce. Expensive but the best version we’ve had to day. Tender, flavorful, plentiful.. A must.

Genwa Korean BBQ LA Bibimbap

Sizzling Bibimbap ($13.95 lunch) was huge and mixed table side. Rice with beef, assorted veggies, egg, and chili paste. Hate to see the dinner size! Stellar ingredients and crisp stone pot rice.

Genwa Korean BBQ LA Mul neng myun

Mul neng myun ($11.95 lunch) was also a healthy portion of cold buckwheat noodles in a beef broth with beef, egg, pear, and vegetables.

OK: (Order if you like this dish)

Pans: (We would not reorder these dishes)
