King Korean BBQ and Sushi Buffet Grand Opening

This place in Cobbs Corner on the border of the Stoughton/Canton/Sharon finally opened. It is owned by the same lady who used to owned but recently sold New Jang Su in Burlington. The place was quite busy tonight even though they simply have a sign outside and didn't plan any ads push until Oct.

The restaurant was completely renovated with about 18 large bbq tables, each with a built-in tabletop gas grill and ceiling industrial vent hood. I have been spoiled numerous times by korean tofu and korean bbq in San Fran, New York, Lawrenceville (Atlanta) so nothing here in Boston can compare in term of price nor quality nor quantity nor side dish variety. However, this place does a very admirable job in serving excellent food and atmosphere for my korean food cravings. My party tried the short rib bbq, spicy pork bbq, scallion pancake, stone bibimbap and all were happy. I will be back on Friday to try the sushi lunch buffet for $9.99.

  1. Sounds good! I'm in that area quite often, so I'll have to hit it one of these days. Is it near Maxie's and the Mill Store?

    When did they sell New Jang Su? Any changes to that restaurant? I haven't been in that neighborhood for a few months...

    1. Does the "buffet" part refer only to the sushi, or do they do AYCE Korean BBQ?

        I asked the same question about the buffet but the staffs there spoke really poor English so I'm puzzled until this Friday.

        Yes, it's across the street.

          Lunch buffet is terrible. Sushi consists of carrot roll, cumcumber roll, spicy tuna roll, really thinly sliced salmon/tuna over huge gob of rice. Soup is miso. Then there's cold noodle, white rice, fried rice, stirfried mushroom, stirfried beef, chicken wings, potsticker, teriyucky chicken, cucumber tempura. Desert is orange. Afterward, I crossed the street and grabbed a $2.99 chicken wings from KFC. How hard is it to do deepfried chicken wings wrong yet this place managed to do it? I suggest you save your $10 bucks+ tax+tip.

            Hehe..."teriyucky". This is disappointing, considering that New Jang Su was one of the better Korean options under their ownership. Maybe this food is just not suitable for buffet style.

      2. We went recently looking for something different after reading the review in the globe. We went on a Saturday afternoon and did the BBQ option (there were others doing the buffet, which looked average).

        The food was very good. We had seafood and a marinated beef -- which came with lots of side dishes, including good kim chi. They could tell we were korean bbq newbies -- our waitress showed us how to do everything, and made it a lot of fun.

        We also tried the oyster pancake which was delicious. They also have an assortment of other dishes, including a number of bibimbop varieties that I look forward to trying.

        All in all, a positive impression -- we'll be back.
