THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Shilla Restaurant Review

: Whether it’s 2 p.m. or 2 a.m., it’s always primetime at Shilla, where office workers and post-partygoers alike pack the bi-level space for Korean-style barbecue and other traditional Korean fare. Tables are equipped with stainless steel vents to keep the smoke at bay while sizzling slices of bulgogi (beef marinated in Korean barbecue sauce and spices), kalbi (marinated short ribs), and a variety of other meats and seafood are cooked at your tableside grill. Choose from appetizers like jobchae, sautéed clear noodles with beef and vegetables (there is also a seafood variety), and mul mandu, hearty boiled beef dumplings, to round out the meal. Red and white wines from California and South America, soju, and Korean and domestic beers are available.
