Atmosphere: spacious and clean! Great vibe. They have kpop playing, colorful lighting, and plenty of grill tables.

Food: this is like any of your regular AYCE kbbq: side dishes, sauces for dipping, rice, salad, and soup included. If you're like me and like garlic, jalapeños, samjang, and lettuce, be sure to ask for it!

I've never experienced such high quality Korean bbq at such a value price.  We went for the standard menu which is differentiated from the premium menu by a significantly lower price, and you can't get galbi, deungshim steak, calamari, shrimp, and a couple of other items that I can't remember right now.  We were seated promptly, inst ... read more

This is an unexpectedly awesome find in South West Missouri. Legitimate Korean BBQ with AYCE. The food quality is great and has very wide selections meats and sides.

Sooo good! All you can eat hibachi style. Definitely coming back here again and again!
Corey Allen via google.com - Nov 2, 2020
Very good experience here. The price is very reasonable, around $17 for all you can eat before tax and tip. They are generous with the meat and sides , and you can have as much as you want for 2 hours. Our server was great and if it's your first time there they explain how everything works. Definitely one of the best values in the ar ... read more

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

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.

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!
Damon F. via yelp.com - Sep 17, 2020
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.

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.

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.
