Great place to eat and drink soju! – Manna is a great place to go with friends if you have big appetite and love to drink soju. The meat is unlimited for a low price and while you intake all that food, you get to drink soju at the same time. I've been there a couple of times and every experience has been a great one. Another reason why I like going to Manna is that it's walking distance from my friend's house and we can drink all the soju we want and not have to worry about driving.
yummy! – I have been to Manna's Twice, I love it! Great Korean BBQ! Consider bringing your friends the more people the better time you'll have. By reading the other reviews they think the quality went down. I have to say the quality was quite good, specially for $16.99 all you can eat.
Bring your jacket, it gets cold in the winter seasons. Its almost like eating outside.
make reservations, it gets pretty busy.
Great food, just LOTS of it – I've been to Manna several times and have always left satisfied. We always order the endless beef and definitely get our money?s worth. The service is typically good. You might have to wait a little longer on busier nights. Seems like a fun place for a birthday party. Every party I?ve ever seen is always having a blast.
Ambience great - Food & cleanliness...not so great. – Used to be better - Quality of food not so good anymore - Service still good - food not.

I was a huge fan of Manna. In fact, our entire circle of friends always opted for Manna when we all meet up for a festive reunion dinner but Manna's quality just isn't the same. I had a party there for 50+ people and took up 2 tables - good times (at the time of course). My husband had a really bad food reaction the morning after and had to call in sick. He was thoughtful enough to go back with me for another dinner with friends although he couldn't get past his last experience - so he just cooked for us and didn't eat. Sure enough this time - Manna's meat did not sit well in MY stomach. I love the vibe & atmosphere of Manna but they need to check the quality of their food. Even the pre-app veggies, kim chi, etc - is not the same, nor does it look as fresh as it used to. Service was great for us. They were friendly and accommodating - just the food and the "CLEANLINESS" of the place needs help. Oil dripped from the lampshades onto my brother in laws hand. Take a look above at the lampshades. I never took notice til this happened. Anyhow the place is what it is. As the problem with a busy popular restaurant the quality could go down if its not managed well. We are opting to find new recommendations from our Korean friends - Tonight we're trying out - SHIK DO RAK on Olympic. Can't Wait!
DELICIOSO! SO GOOD. – WOW! Manna's is SOOOO goooooooood..! I had so much fun--I went with for my birthday and I had a blast! the platters of meat keep coming...the litte mini side-dishes are so delicious too! I like the baked-scrambled egg..and they keep coming as you empty them out! just thinking about the food makes my mouth water. It was so fun too..you get to grill your own meat and everything. Even though you come out of MANNA's dying because you're so FULL, it is SO worth it. $16.99 / person but you get a LOT of food! and it's good tooo..the salad and the rice papers go really well with the meat (taco-style).
I CAN'T WAIT TO GO BACK!
The only thing I would recommend is to have some kind of air-suction thing (I don't know how because they're outdoors) because all the smoke from the grilling just circulates around and it makes your clothing really stinky. My friend kept on coughing and couldn't stop because she was inhaling so much smoke.
But other than that, YUMMY food. SO YUMMY.
Good food, lots of meat – This place is wonderful. It really fills you up because you can each as much as you want. You cook the meat yourself and they bring you things to eat with it and sauces to dip it in when its done cooking. My favorite was the think slices of meat and the salt and pepper oil sauce. Sooo yummy! Expect to eat a lot and expect to smell like smoke when you leave. Its just part of the experience!
Editorial Review – Smoky Korean dining hall provides unlimited platters of marinated chicken, pork and beef for personal grilling at the table.
Going Downhill, Disgusting Beef – I've eaten at Manna 5 times in the past year. Every time I went and I enjoyed the food, particularlly the BBQ beef. However, times have changed at Manna, and it's not for the better!
Boy have they changed, I'm not sure if this is a management decision or what but I usually order the bbq beef, usually its sent out on a large big plate, and now its on a small plate half the size! And now the beef has bones in it. And it's a lot more fatty. This is a huge letdown and disappointment.
Let's see last time I went I get a plate twice the size, at the same price, without bones/fat.
And now i get a plate half the size, bones in it, less beef and its more fatty, and OH get this, ITS THE SAME EXACT Price! 16 bucks a person.
I will never eat at Manna ever again. The beef taste like plastic now. It's a much less quality beef and it's a real shame. And now theirs more bones and fat in it so you will not get full.
Steer clear of Manna!
COMPLETE BS – THIS PLACE IS GREAT...IF YOU REALLY DONT KNOW WHAT TRUE, GOOD QUALITY KOREAN BBQ IS SUPPOSED TO TASTE LIKE. THE SERVICE IS RUDE, THE WAIT CAN REACH 40 MINUTES EASY, AND YOU HAVE TO DINE RIGHT NEXT TO PEOPLE YOU DONT EVEN KNOW. EVERYONE IS SO IRRITATING. WHILE I WAS ORDERING, THE PARTY NEXT TO US CUT ME OFF ASKING FOR MORE MEAT. WAIT YOUR F*KIN TURN. I'VE SEEN TONS OF PEOPLE GET DRUNK AND BREAK SOJU GLASSES EVERYWHERE. ONE TIME DURING SOME RENOVATION, THEY ACTUALLY SAT US IN WHAT WAS JUST AN ALLEY WITH TABLES AND CHAIRS. CONSTRUCTION MATERIAL EVERYWHERE, PLASTIC FILM WINDOWS BILLOWING IN THE WIND. VALET ARE RUDE AND DRIVE YOUR CAR RECKLESSLY DOWN THAT SUPER STEEP DRIVEWAY. DID I MENTION THE ANNOYING FOBBY HAPPY BIRTHDAY SONG THAT COMES ON EVERY 30 MINUTES? I'M SO GLAD I'VE OPENED MY EYES AND MOVED ON TO THE MANY OTHER BETTER ALL YOU CAN EAT BBQ PLACES JUST MINUTES AWAY.
fun fun fun yum yum yum – i love this place! yummy food - yummy SOJU... it's great. Loud and outdoor patio great place to people watch or catch up with a pal. I love Korean BBQ - great price, good meat, decent service. Definitely should try it.
