Whilst there are 10+ Korean restaurant in Strathfield, Yass offers a bbq buffet for $34 per head. Having a Korean BBQ feast at a non-buffet restaurant is a sure way to go overboard on your wallet, especially since the meats are so expensive and the quantities are so small.
- If you’re really hungry and just want to eat meat, here is your endless supply of meat, seafood and sides
- If you’re craving Korean BBQ and don’t want the burden of deciding what to order, here is everything already out for you to decide as you eat
- If you love Korean side dishes but have some shame asking the waitress to re-fill your side dishes more than once in a restaurant, here is an endless supply of classic sides including kimchi, sweet potato, fish cakes, chesnut cake etc.
- BBQ items available:
- bulgogi, spare ribs, wagyu, pork belly
- calamari, octopus, prawns
- pumpkin, onion, mushrooms
- Other things in the buffet line include:
- Takoyaki – octopus balls
- ‘Spicy’ korean rice cakes (not that spicy)
- Korean fried chicken wing and drumsticks
- Sweet potato noodles
- Sushi and Sashimi
- Rice and rice water
- Long tables and booths great for groups and gatherings
- Service was great and they changed our bbq cook top around 3-4 times during the night
- They don’t have fans directly above the BBQs so you might be breathing in a lot of smoke
- The meats were quite chewy, which may be attributed to our cooking ability or the quality of the meats
- Food was average and cooked foods in the buffet line will get less fresh as the night goes on if not refilled
You know, coming out of the restaurant, I didnt’ have a great impression of the food there. But upon writing this post and creating the list of positives and negatives, I realised that I was clouded by my own subjective opinion of personally not liking Korean BBQ that much. I think if you are a fan of Korean BBQ or just like the atmosphere it creates, the list of positives could outweigh the list of negatives and Yass may be a great option for your next dinner out!
