Northern BBQ & Sushi Buffet

Northern [Korean] BBQ & Sushi Buffet
157-26 Northern Blvd
Flushing, NY 11354
(718) 886-8880


If you’re coming with a large party, especially on a Saturday night, be sure to make reservations! My party of 10 had to wait about 45mins before being seated.  The people in here are mostly Korean, in fact you’ll be greeted by the staff in the Korean language.  They’re really friendly and cute!

The atmosphere in the restaurant is very relaxing despite having a buffet environment.  It’s definitely better when you bring a crew of your friends to dine out.

I really love the environment here.  When you are seated, feel free to get up and get some food.  I started off grabbing some hot food and sushi:

There’s my cali rolls, my potato croquet (god i love it), fried rice, chicken wings, and stir fried string beans. Yum.

Now, grab a plate full of meat to grill on your table.  That’s right, it’s a BBQ and you do it yourself.  It’s just the best way to do it.

Ask the server to start up the grill for you, otherwise you’ll play with the gas knob all night and wondering how the hell does it work.  When you first work the grill, please drizzle some oil on it.  It makes the cooking process faster.  I’m sure you all know, but just a reminder especially if you’re a newbie like me.  Usually the server do it for me, but here, you actually do it yourself.  And seldom a server will come by if s/he isn’t busy and do it for you too.

The beef brisket, shown above, could be marinated a little more.  What I highly recommend are the ribs.  OH MY GOSH, it’s the juiciest, tastiest, most succulent piece of meat I ever had.  Let me show you:

It just so so good! Use the scissors that they provide you to cut up the meat.  Cut it after when it’s done cooking.  This is the best piece of meat I had all night and I loved it!! There are other meats like steak, sausage, pork, intestines (ew, but still cool), etc etc, but this by far was the best I have had for the night.  It’s all you can eat buffet, so try everything!

Sometimes when you finish a plate, the server might not see that your plate needs to be changed so call them over and they’ll gladly do it for you. =)

My only gripe about this place was that they had a poor dessert and fruit section.  For the fruit section they only had grapes and cherries and ran out of cantaloupe and honeydew.  For dessert they have jello, I think that was it and it wasn’t even that great.

I highly recommend this place!

Price: $25/person ALL-YOU-CAN-EAT!

    I went to this restaurant last year with some friends. The ambiance was amazing for a buffet-style dining experience. I am taking my wife here tonight because she never experienced Korean BBQ. I think everybody should try Korean BBQ at least one time in their life. It is an experience like no other. I would also recommend Picnic Garden which is also on Northern Blvd if you want good Korean BBQ at a reasonable price.

    This place has been converted to New York Buffet, it still offers the same great buffet food and service but the name has changed. Sushi and unlimited meat is offered at this restaurant for the fabulous price of $24.95 like before. The phone number to the newly managed restaurant is 718-321-2770!

    American women are mostly pretty but at the same time they are quite plumby. I like russian women because they are skinier. `’,;’

    Dating or being married to an American woman is like driving a beat-up Ford Escort. If you are only used to driving a beat-up Ford Escort, then you have no idea what it feels like when you drive a Bentley or Ferrari. You need to at least test-drive a Ferrari, so you’ll have a reference point on what a real car feels like. :
