Opinions Wanted: What’s the Best AYCE Korean Restaurant in Las Vegas?

Posted by on Aug 29, 2022 in Las Vegas, Restaurant Reviews | 0 comments



I used to think Korean restaurants were pretty much all the same, particularly when it comes to “All You Can Eat” options. The menus and selections tend(ed) to be standard everywhere. Even the prices were/are similar.

Marieta and I discovered Master Kims about 3 years ago, which was always excellent. It’s right off the 215 on Durango (SW LV). For $25 (lunch) we enjoyed the AYCE feature and always departed more than full and satisfied. However, much to our regret, Master Kims has recently declined in quality on our two visits this summer. The final straw was the removal of their potato salad. Now, all their side dishes are spicy leafy vegetables, which just aren’t as good. The price also increased, which is to be expected. Nonetheless, we think we can do better elsewhere. Oh, and forget about Lee’s Korean BBQ Woonamjung on Spring Mountain in Korean Plaza. That used to be great. Now, it smells and is terrible. We can do better than this–that’s the reason for this post.

Now, it’s become a participation trophy. Standing ovations are meaningless.

I committed the crime.

I did the time.

My 60-day sentence in Facebook prison has ended.

Back in civilian clothes, now. It’s time to put the band back together and start playing music again.

Amps cranked. 1…2…3…4…!

I’ll be back to my daily ritual of writing and posting.  Thanks for reading and for all the private messages of support.
