Buddha BBeeq - any recommendations?

We're planning on going tonight after a movie - saw some general discussion about it, but wondering if any one has any particular recommendations? Will report back in any event - looks nice inside.

    It's really cute, and I liked the food - it felt like I was eating in someone's home, which was lovely. Fresh, simple food - ask for korean hot sauce on the side. I had the bbq beef and rice, which was amazing with the scallion pancake. Also got a delightful pot of ginger tea. A mild, light concoction.

      I agree with these recs, I think the BBQ beef ribs are tasty (their version of LA style kalbi) and I like the kimchi-beef pancakes. The portions are a little on the small side, but the ingredients are fresh and you feel healthy afterwards. The fruit smoothie is really good too.

        Thanks - we walked by and decided for whatever reason that we didn't feel like going there and went to Kurio's around the corner. Next time!

          What's Kurio's?

            It's a lovely small family owned restaurant on E. 92nd Street - a hidden gem, IMO.
