I dined at Best Friend Restaurant in Las Vegas recently and was happy to find that it was just as good as I remembered from my last visit. I made a reservation this time and enjoyed the great atmosphere while dining in. The food at Best Friend is truly excellent. No matter what you choose from the menu, you won't be disappointed. The staff is friendly and welcoming, and the decor adds to the overall fun ambiance of the restaurant. I highly recommend trying the Korean Chicken Wings appetizer. They are definitely worth it and some of the best fried wings I've ever had. Overall, a great dining experience at Best Friend Restaurant.

My experience at Best Friend Restaurant was fantastic! We made a reservation a few days in advance and were promptly seated upon arrival. The front of the restaurant has a cozy bodega-like atmosphere. The back of the restaurant was dimly lit and a bit noisy, but that is to be expected in Las Vegas. The service was exceptional and the food was delicious. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for a laid-back yet upscale dining experience on the strip.

My partner and I absolutely adore Best Friend Restaurant. We opted for the Chef's Menu and every dish was exceptional. The warm, mouth-watering bread, the kimchi fried rice with crispy rice bits, and the incredible cheesecake were all highlights of the meal. We can't wait to dine here again on our next visit to Las Vegas.

I recently dined at Best Friend Restaurant in Las Vegas with a group of friends. We arrived a few minutes late for our reservation, but the staff was understanding and promptly seated us. We decided to order the tasting menu, which ended up costing a little over $380 for the three of us. The food was delicious overall, although the street corn was a bit too acidic for my taste. Surprisingly, the tacos were the highlight of the meal, despite being served only one each while other dishes were more plentiful. Our waitress was friendly, but upon returning home, I found out that we were charged a $75 late fee for being just three minutes behind schedule. Considering our total bill at the restaurant, I was disappointed that they still decided to enforce the fee. On principle, I am unsure if I will be returning to Best Friend Restaurant in the future.

Being Las Vegas locals and an extreme fan of Korean food, my family and I have been wanting to try this restaurant for a while. At one point, it was very challenging to get reservations to this restaurant because of its popularity and the lack of timing on our part. The day to try this place out had finally arrived on 25 Nov 2023, to celebrate our daughter's "early" birthday before she had to head back to college. When we walked in, we were met with unfortunate news that they didn't have a table waiting for us because in their system, they had us down for a 22 Nov 2023 reservation. We originally had our reservation on that day; however, we had to move it to the 25th because of family events that took priority. When my wife had called to change the reservation, the person on the phone assured to her that everything had been changed and that our new reservation was on 25 Nov 2023 - clearly this wasn't the case. You would think that this would be the end of our night and that we'd have to find a new place to eat for my daughter's birthday dinner? NO! Thankfully for us, we had Lilian working as the hostess. She did such a remarkable job in squeezing us in at a table because of the mix-up and was very friendly and professional about it while coordinating this effort. She even managed to seat us at the "Chef's Table" which was a unique experience and clearly unexpected. Needless to say, a special shout-out to Lilian for setting this up for us! When we sat down, we experienced another dose of professionalism, attentiveness, and friendliness in our main server by the name of Maria C. (MC). She did such a superb job which made the evening unforgettable. One thing I noticed was how MC consistently filled our water glasses - this was truly phenomenal! This is typically a service you'd experience at a 4-dollar sign restaurant. Regardless, she was extraordinary to my family and I. We ordered the Lumpia and Korean Wings; Chef Menu consisting of: Banchan, Kogi Tacos, Slippery Shrimp, Kimchi Fried Rice, Garlic Chicken, Kalbi, Date Cake, and Strawberry Cheesecake. Everything was great, but the star performers on this list were the Kogi Tacos, Korean Wings, and as odd as it sounds, the rolls (my daughter is the carb queen). Whereas, all the items were great, I will say that the Kimchi Fried Rice and Garlic Chicken wasn't as good as I was hoping. The fried rice didn't have that traditional Korean-style fried rice feel to it...maybe because of its darker color? (yes, I understand that this is a fusion-type restaurant)...I don't know but I can definitely say that I've had better. Also, the texture in the chicken was slightly less than adequate. The price-to-quantity/quality ratio was reasonable. If you were to ask the gluttonous, 23-year old me, years and years ago, then I'd wish there were more food. But since I understand what "normal" portions are and the fact that I'm older and can't eat as much, I feel that this place serves the perfect amount of food for the price you pay. Thank you Best Friend/Roy Choi for supporting the men and women of the Armed Forces and its Veterans - this is profoundly commendable and appreciated. I highly recommend this place to all locals and visitors.

Korean street food restaurant that serves family style. We were seated at the VIP table next to the kitchen. From the time we were seated the staff was very attentive, polite and very knowledgeable about the menu and offered suggestions for our group to try. The Music is a whole vibe with a 90's and early 2000's playlist. Let's just say you could dance and eat the music is so good. The decore is retro, and entrance looks like a bodega (corner store) with a bar and restaurant with a flash back to the 80's/90's & early 2000's. The food and presentation was awesome and definitely didn't disappoint, everything came out pipping hot, well SEASONED and flavorful. The bartender was tending...and kept the drinks flowing and were delicious and strong! Hands down one of the BEST culinary experience I've had in a while. That's my BEST Friend!!!!!
