Korean BBQ near John Wayne Airport

I'd like to have a company lunch at a Korean BBQ place. Does anyone know of any that is open for lunch near John Wayne airport? Actually, any other suggestions for ethnic cuisine in vicinity would be greatly appreciated as well.

  1. I work right across the street from the airport, and there is a Korean BBQ place there called Yi Dynasty (across the street from the Quiznos/La Salsa place). There is also a Benihana's and a Hokkaido buffet nearby. They're all pretty much meh, nothing really spectacular. There is also an Indian buffet in the area called Saagar which is decent for the price. For a company lunch, any of those 4 would be fine IMHO, but for a foodie lunch I would probably suggest driving a little further if possible.

    1. re: kingkong5

      2nd Yi Dynasty, it's about 2 blocks from John Wayne

      Another option would be Agora, an all you can eat brazilian restaurant/meat-lovers heaven

    2. Agree with both Yi and Agora. Agora runs about $25/person, and Yi left my clothes smelling.
