If you must eat Korean BBQ in downtown Toronto which one would you chose?
I have friends visiting from out of town and they really want to do the Korean BBQ thing and it needs to be downtown. I feel like most options I've been to or seen are very chain type places. Anything that is even a cut above the average would be great!
I actually prefer the Korean Grill House on Yonge south of Gerrard because the first place I ever had Korean BBQ was at their location on Midland Road... but I know it is run by Chinese and that offends the Korean BBQ purists...
If you want to spend the extra money and have the authentic version I think you might have to go to one of the Korean places on Bloor west of Bathurst.... I might be wrong but I don't think any of them are all you can eat, and I think Korea House actually brings out propane stoves because Korean BBQ is such a small part of the menu there.

If I am in the mood for Korean style Korean BBQ and not the HK versions like Korean Grill House, my choice in downtown Koreatown are LA BBQ (606 Bloor W) and Mirak (709 Bloor W). LA has a more limited menu with the typical soups/stews and BBQ, while Mirak has a pretty good selection including some set menus.
If you expand to the Korean area in North York, I would recommend Mot Na Son Restaurant.
