We're guided to our seats by the waitress, who can converse in Mandarin.
She asked us to hide our belongings inside the stool to avoid smelly smoke
from BBQ. What a brilliant idea~!

In just a few minutes after we ordered 8-color set Samgyupsal , the waitresses 
filled up all the space of our table with Haemul Jjigae (seafood stew), Kimchi, 
lettuce, garlic, vegetables, and salad, and...

8-color set Samgyupsal on this special wooden plate that stated 
each of the flavors in English, Chinese and Japanese languages

Not to worry if you don't know how to BBQ them, as the waiters are going around and ready to assist customers to grill, flip and cut the samgyupsal to biteable size for you even without you asking them for help. Excellent service and everything is just so convenience:

The grilling plate has hole and it's a bit slanted, so it's easy to discard the excessive oil 
from pork fat without the need to tilt the plate to the special built-in container on the table.
