You don't have to go to Seoul for awesome Korean food! Here are the six best Korean restaurants in Vegas!
After a long day of seeing shows and gambling at casinos, you’ll be craving some spicy and savory Korean cuisine. Be sure to add more chili sauce to your meal to cover up the tears from losing all of your money at the poker table, or celebrate with a few bottles of soju. Here are some great places to enjoy some Korean food in Las Vegas.
1. Q Bistro
Q Bistro is a Korean fusion restaurant that is a good place to take your friends if you really want Korean food, and they are not so sure about it. They offer western food options with a Korean twist like the bulgogi pizza with marinated beef, peppers, onions, and mushrooms. The sweetness of the meat really makes this pizza special. The fried chicken is also a must, and comes with a choice of five different sauces. The menu is very westernized, giving a nice compromise between standard American fare and Korean cuisine.
Location: 3400 S Jones Blvd
2. Mother's Korean Grill
This restaurant has an excellent authentic menu that has just about everything. It is a little pricier, but many menu items are meant to be shared. Choose and entrée to have all to yourself, or choose a stew that cooks right in front of you to share with your friends. You’ll be able to sit around the table and talk, because the food never gets cold. There is also an option to have the traditional Korean barbeque and cook your meat at the table. There are many different cuts of meat and marinades to choose from. Along with the meat, enjoy the traditional side dishes. There is an option to have endless refills of sides like kimchi, chapchae noodles, tofu soup, and Korean pancakes. You’ll want to check this out if you want the very best in authentic Korean food.
Location: 4215 Spring Mountain Rd
3. Jun's Korean Restaurant
Jun’s Korean Restaurant has all of the basics. For your starter, try the mandoo. They are fried dumplings filled with meat, vegetables, and noodles. Try the stone pot bibimbap. It is rice, vegetables, and an egg, covered in chili sauce. You can order bibimbap without the stone pot, but the heat from the stone pot cooks the egg on top and makes the rice crispy and delicious on the bottom. If you decide that you like the marinades and sauces, you can even purchase Jun’s sauces at the restaurant to take home and use to create your own Korean dishes.
Location: 8826 South Eastern Avenue, #113
4. Korean Gardern BBQ Restaurant
This restaurant features bulgogi style beef, chicken and pork, along with beef tongue and mackerel. You’ll also want to try some of the soups on the menu. If you’re eating with a group, order the beef shabu-shabu. First, you’ll get a pot full of boiling broth at your table. You can add thinly sliced beef and your choice of vegetables to the pot. Once you eat all of the soup, add rice and an egg to your remaining soup broth and make porridge. It is so delicious and filling. The kimchi jigae is awesome, too. It is a kimchi stew with pork that you mix with white rice. Kimchi is usually quite pungent, but once cooked into the stew, it has a lovely mild flavor and the heat from the kimchi is cooled down by eating it with rice.

5. Gangnam Asian BBQ Dining
Named after the glamorous neighborhood in Seoul, Gangnam Asian BBQ Dining provides a fancy experience for a great price. The menu items are predominately Korean, but there are also some Japanese and Chinese options as well. This restaurant provides shared meal options for groups of two, four, or six people. It comes with salad, soup, rice, and appetizer, and several different cuts of meat for the barbeque. Go with an empty stomach, because it’s a lot of food and it comes with unlimited side dishes. If you’re not as hungry or looking for something a little less expensive, order the bulgogi or the pork belly. It’s good quality meat for a great price.
Location: 4480 Paradise Rd
6. Honey Pig Korean Barbeque
Honey Pig is open 24 hours a day, so you can get your Korean food fix at any time! One important thing about this restaurant is that the table grills are large enough to put a lot of food on to cook at one time. Some Korean restaurants only have a small grill that makes it impossible to eat more than one kind meat at a time. With the bigger tables, you can put several different meats and sides on the grill at once. This restaurant also has refillable side dishes so you can eat your kimchi cold or grilled. Utilize the side dishes to their full potential by wrapping up grilled meat, vegetables, and rice in a piece of crisp lettuce. It is really the perfect meal.
Location: 4725 Spring Mountain Rd
These restaurants will certainly have something for everyone. Whether you regularly eat Korean food, or you’re new to this style of barbeque and spice, you’ll find something delicious and satisfying.
