Nice Korean food in Las Vegas

I wanted to try some Korean food and got a recommendation for Island Style on a restaurant Web site I guess we’re not supposed to mention on Chowhound. It was a good recommendation.
Island Style isn’t a destination-type of restaurant like Lotus of Siam or Michael Mina. It’s a neighborhood restaurant but it does a pretty good job with Korean food.
I ordered the combination plate, which came with ghalbi, meat jun and grilled chicken. The ghalbi was excellent and that’s what earns it a mention on Chowhound from me. Really good grilled flavor. The meat jun is like an omelet and it was nice too. The grilled chicken was petty much standard grilled chicken.
Island Style is a fusion Korean and Hawaiian restaurant and I guess that showed in my meal with the inclusion of macaroni salad with the meat and steamed rice. It was nice, too. There were only two banchan dishes, white radish kim chee and cabbage kim chee. But the dishes were quite large for banchan. The white radish kim chee was a stand out. It was a pretty good version. The kim chee at Island Style is not especially spicy but still good.
If I were to go back, I’d skip the combo and just order a plate of ghalbi. But it looks like there’s other good things on the menu, too.

  1. Thanks for the review of a place I didn't know about.

    1. Try this one.This is my favorite place for Korean considering the value and quality of the food. I usually get the buffet (not a real buffet as in the food stations). This buffet is better because it is made to order. You pick a few items off the menu and it is made fresh and then order some more items off the menu. All for $15.99! I do hate it when others, who don't know Korean, food rate these types of places. I am a S. Korean and I know my food. Is it the best Korean ever? No..BUT it is pretty dang good for the value that you are getting. I liked everything on the menu and it tastes how it suppose to taste. Most of the food is basic Korean food done well. If you go a regular Korean al-a-carte restaurant, you will pay more. It is a good expierence for those who aren't sure what to order in a Korean restaurant.
