good korean food, worst restaurant, reasonable prices, helpful wait staff, fresh meat, authentic dishes, very good quality
Great Korean BBQ!. The best BBQ place in the town. Stuffs are really well behaved & the BBQ is simply awesome!!!
wonderful staff. Our service was great and the waiter was adorable. Ambiance was romantic and definitely recommended. For the music,,,I would recommend jazz or house and the people were cool. Portions were good.
Spicy and Tasty. This place rocks! I love the kimchee. I love the meat. it is spicy so get ready for some heat!
High end Korean BBQ with a casual dining vibe!!!. I've been to a few Korean BBQ places in Los Angeles, and this is definitely the best. The my favorite thing about Wharo is that is has a low key vibe with very high quality food. I may not be a foodie but I can tell the difference in the meat they use here. Definitely a great place for lunch or dinner!
Best of best!. if i were in LA, i must be come there!
Good Stuff!. My first experience having Korean cuisine or Korean BBQ was at Wharo. It is the so good, the space is quaint, the service is wonderful...and overall good spot to have a company party or event.
The Best. This is my favorite Korean BBQ spot. eveything here is fresh and tasty. come here if its the last thing you do on this planet. you have to try it
Delicious. Wharo's is my favorite korean bbq on the westside! the meat and side dishes are fabulous. Its so good. I don't think there is a better k bbq in the area. Although i heard that there is a new spot called Gyenari in culver city that was delicious too. Might have to try it out. We'll see.
K-Town goes west with this GIY eatery for those who like the thrill of the grill..
Named after the traditional charcoal pot which is used in Korean families, this Marina Del Rey eatery proudly bills itself as the first American-Korean barbecue restaurant for non-Koreans in Los Angeles. Catering to a steady stream of laidback locals and families not willing to make the trek to K-Town, the casually modern space features tables that come with their own wharos to keep food warm. Patrons can order starters like edamame, pan-fried Korean pancakes and organic salads, while grill-it-yourself options include beef, pork, chicken, short ribs, shrimp, scallops or vegetables. But don't worry--those who are grilling-impaired can have the kitchen bring it out cooked to order.
Just okay... but there are very few Korean BBQ places in MDR. I dined at Wharo last night with a couple buddies. There wasn't a wait to get seated but the place filled up pretty quickly after we sat down. The place seemed to be understaffed as we had to wave down our waiter to take our order and our empty meat trays were never picked up until after the meal. I found the quality of food to be good but not exceptional. Also, I think the dishes were a bit overpriced considering the quantity you're getting. There are a couple things that distinguish this place from any Korean BBQ joint in K-Town or Gardena: the entire wait staff speaks perfect English, there is a good wine selection (for a Korean BBQ place), and the dessert selection is more of an American mix. Overall, we found the meal to be "okay". If you're craving Korean food and you're too lazy to drive all the way to K-Town, this place will suffice.
