Very good food, friendly staff, $$$ on the pricey side, but very good. You cook your choice of meat in the middle of the table. A fun experience!

SO GOOD. Service also excellent, super attentive without hovering or pushy. She was there just when I need her. First time ever eating grill food without smelling like smoke getting onto my hair and clothes. Excellent ventilation. We got the 25$ option (add kalbi, steak, calamari, shrimp), turn out it was a bit much. Next time I will ... read more

First time and it was awesome. Our server was amazing, he was very attentive and provided great recommendations. Wish we could have ate more than the first four meats but we were far too full!

Was fun and we'll definitely go back. The pieces of chicken took a long time to cook and we were charged for the premium price, however, only ordered off the standard menu. Otherwise, was really fun and all the staff were super nice.

Service was fast paced. Never been to a place like this before and the waiter helped us out alot and kept checking in on us to make sure we understood.

First time to this restaurant. I am from NJ and here visiting my son and his girlfriend. On my last day here he took me out to this place as a surprise. WOW THIS IS GREAT. He cooked. Great food, Great waitress, nice clean and friendly atmosphere. It was phenomenal. I wish you had these restaurants here in NJ.

Unique, fun and tasty!
My family had so much fun here and it was definitely a new experience for us! The staff was so friendly and knowledgeable, and I feel like we learned a lot about Korean culture. Definitely come hungry because everything is so good and there is...so much of it. I highly recommend and we will be back!More ... read more

Very solid Korean BBQ. Sides are great and the service is top notch. Everything is good, but some of the meat is very Americanized. The samguyosal is missing the seasonings you get when you order it in Korea.

All in all very good. We will be regulars.

Wow. This place was amazing!  The food was so good and the portions they kept bringing out were very sufficient. Most all-you-can-eat places, once you've had your first serving, the next ones are tiny. Not here. Will definitely go back the next time I'm in Springfield!

Moving to Springfield I did not expect to find an AYCE KBBQ spot. I am so happy that Bawi exists and that the quality of the meat, the sides, and the service is so high. Galbi is my favorite, and any KBBQ fan knows it’s the best meat on the menu. Soju + Galbi = Happy.

This place is awesome. We were there for the all you can eat, and they have so many meats and side dishes to get. The servers are nice and they tell you the hostory of the place and how to eat, cut the meat, and how to order more.
Benito S. via yelp.com - Sep 9, 2020
Really great place for a first date or wanting to have a fun and intimate experience. You can have unlimited meat for 2 hours (which I doubt you’ll even exceed). they give you some typical Korean appetizers to begin with, such as Korean pancakes. What advice I would give people coming here for their first time is, if you do not want ... read more

Just moved from Korea and this place is on point! The workers weren’t Korean (today), but our waitress was so sweet. She said the owners are Korean. This is the best Korean food we’ve had in Missouri. Definitely recommend this place for authentic Korean BBQ. We had the chicken bulgogi, beef kalbi, thin cut beef brisket, pork bulgogi.
Rochelle Ruiz Pressley via google.com - Sep 7, 2020
awesome food at traditional Korean BBQ. Very impressed by service and how good food was. Highly recommended. Will be back when in Springfield.

Mashisoyo! Stopped by this place a week ago, and have been craving it ever since. This is a fun, memorable way to get stuffed! Food is delicious, staff is very helpful and knowledgeable, reasonably priced for its value. Best Kimchi I have had in a really long time. I favor the spicy pork bulgogi, and the beef bulgogi.

We love to go here.  I've not found anything here I don't like.  You cook your own meat on a small grill in front of you.

This was my second time here. The first was definitely horrible due to poor service. I vowed to never go back! After the first experience, we called to talk to a manager, one was not available and to call back at 4.

This was the most unique restaurant experience I have ever had. No waiting for the cook to get the food done, great quality meat. Get the pork belly. My server was BOMB, 100/100. Eat here. Worth every penny.
Bambleton via google.com - Aug 2, 2020
A bit pricey, but the all-you-can-eat menu is pretty stacked. Employees are always super nice. Give their bulgogi beef bowls a try. For as cheap as the bowls are, definitely worth it. One of Springfield's best Korean barbecue restaurants, by far.

It was well worth the drive from Rolla MO. The store was clean and you can tell they took corona virus seriously. Every other booth was blocked off. People were asked to notify the store when they arrived, and there were signs throughout the store asking people to wear mask when they are away from the table. The only thing i would su ... read more

Since this is a new spot and the first K-BBQ restaurant in Springfield, I'd give 4 stars. It has so much potential and lots of room for improvement. Coming from California and someone whose lived in Koreatown with lots of K-BBQ place 24/7, I'd say this place will boom with some improvements.

Affordable and bless! Best place to eat especially if you are a teen. 18 dollars for AYCE for the standard menu is crazy. Unbeatable deal. Also, the server/waiters are very attentive and will give you all the attention you need. You can ring for someone to cook for you! Best money I spent since quarantine.

The servers are attentive and friendly. The meat is good and the prices are cheap. They give you 2 hours of all you can eat which is the perfect amount of time to eat the delicious food.

Five stars isn't nearly enough to fully appreciate how delicious Bawi is. Cooking your own meat is an adventure that you get to share with the whole family. The meat absolutely melts in your mouth and the sheer variety is staggering. Thankfully you have two hours to journey through the menu. Bulgolgi, galbi, and the pork belly are my ... read more

My favorite restaurant in Springfield mo hands down.  Spicy pork bulgogi and galbi are our favorites, we leave with the meat sweats by the time we are done lol.  Pro tip, first time we had the calamari, we were not crazy about it, it didn't have a ton of flavor we thought.  Second time we ordered it, we put some of the sesame oil the ... read more

The food was well seasoned, there was a wide variety of meat and seafood to choose from, and the care from the waitress keeping us stocked with sides and meat was exemplary! Collectively we liked everything they had to offer from kimchi to calamari steaks.
