We ordered Pork Belly and Chicken Wings for the barbecue and a kimchi soup. They served us the raw meat quickly but were not very conscientious about barbecuing the meats for us. Eventually we took to barbecuing the meats by ourselves which resulted in slightly charred pork belly and chicken wings as seen in the photos below.   They poured egg around the grill which cooked quickly and was really delicious! The marinated pork belly was good too. Well-marinated, tasty, with fats that melted in my mouth. The cuts were rather thin and while I would prefer thick juicy cuts of pork belly, the thin cuts of pork belly at Wang Dae Bak did keep me warm and happy in that cold night.

The chicken wings were delicious. Fresh and extremely tender, the chicken fell off the bone easily and I love the crispy chicken skin. We asked for more egg because it was really yummy.

The kimchi soup was delicious and the hot soup filled my belly with warmth. On that cold rainy night, with wet feet and clothes, I was very grateful for the hot food on the table, the grill with sizzling meats on top, and the spicy soup that spread warmth in my belly.

For full review and pics, do visit therantingpanda.com There were some hits and misses with the food, especially the quaity of the meat. Price ain’t exactly value for money and expect long waits if you decided to walk in. The whole restaurant was quite smoky as well, so my advice is be prepared to smell like roasted meat after your meal. We chose the Boneless Prime Rib Beef ($28) and Shoulder Loin Pork ($18). The servings of the beef and pork was quite small, which might not be sufficient for the big eaters. I was slightly disppointed with the quality of the beef which left me unimpressed. The beef taste was very mediocre and it was obvious that it was not high quality beef. The pork was pretty normal fare as well.

Authentic Korean Charcoal BBQ

To sum it up: Authentic atmosphere, so-so food, pricey.

This China Square outlet is not as packed as the one at Amoy Street, but reservations are still recommended. The servers didn't help to cook our food like some other korean bbq places would, but that's fine. Tip: The seat cushion can be lifted so you could store your bag in the seats and protect it from the bbq smells!

Side Dishes
Weren't very impressive. All were left almost half eaten, with the exception of the kimchi.

Egg rolls
There were two wells on the sides of the grill pan and a beautiful golden egg mixture was poured into them at the table, refilled for free upon request. The egg mixture was rather delicious.

Seafood Pancake ($18)
Bits of seafood are generous and the size of this dish is massive. Couldn't finish it despite our best efforts. Tastes good but greasy and "floury". Tip: warm it up on the grill if its turned cold.

Spicy Pork Belly ($18)
This was really yummy and wasn't too fatty on the palate. The slices here are sliced thick. Make sure not to char it on the grill too long or it'll get tough!

Boneless Prime Rib ($28)
This was nice, but nothing to shout about.

Both meat dishes came with rice cakes and a bunch of enoki mushrooms and they all cooked very well in the residual oil from the meat on the grill. Meat portions were rather small for the price. The servers only turned the suction over the grill on halfway through our meal. We still left the place smelling strongly of bbq; fe-breeze sprays are provided at the cashier though!

Worth a try, but a more satisfying meal could be had elsewhere for the price.
