I've tried all the Korean places in Boston and this is the best one by far. They always use fresh ingredients and high quality meats for the BBQ (the owner told me they focus on getting the highest quality meats). They're good at pretty much everything I've had (I've only had the Korean side of the menu), including the side dishes and especially the kimchee. Try asking for some of the other dishes besides the most common ones that everyone gets, I think you'll be happy with how they turn out and you'll get to taste a greater variety of food. I bring my family here all the time (we're Korean) and they love it.

A isappointment. Food quality was average, marinades were dull, portion sizes were small, and prices were fairly high. For these reasons I cannot recommend this restaurant.

Having just tried Korean BBQ for the first time, I was pleasantly surprised. Yasu had delicious marinated meat and pickled veggies, and lettuce wraps to keep it low carb. It was delicous, a little pricey, but there was so much food I couldn't finish it all. The best part was a getting a break from the Japanese and Chinese and Thai that dominate the neigborhood and tasting some new flavors.

When I lived in New York, I could always find my way to K-town when I had the yearning to cook my own Kalbi or Bulgolgi. Boston and Brookline have had a serious dearth of good Korean BBQ until now -- Yasu opened recently and serves both Korean and Japanese food. The surprisingly spacious restaurant has tables dedicated either to Shabu-shabu (Japanese hot pot where you cook thinly slices meats and vegetables yourself at the table and finish up with the broth that you cooked them in) or Korean BBQ, when marinated meats and seafood are grilled on a table-top grill right in front of you! They also serve lots of tasty little picked side dishes to accompany the BBQ, so even though it's not a super cheap dinner, you certainly get a lot for your money. Yasu is a terrific addition to the Coolidge Corner restaurant scene, and I urge you to try it ! (P.S. their takeout ain't bad either).

Hands down the best meat I've ever tasted. I don't know why I never knew about this place. I guess b/c it's impossible to find a menu, website or review online.
