2D1N is definitely one of the best Korean BBQ places I have ever been in Singapore. I specially love their marinated beef slices also know as beef bulgogi. You can eat it like how Koreans do - roll up the grilled bulgogi in leafy lettuces with a small scoop of rice and place it into your mouth. It brings the entire Korean BBQ experience to a whole new level. Unlike other BBQ places where the display of their raw meat attracts flies and pests, 2D1N has excellent hygiene in my opinion.

However, one downside of this Korean BBQ place is that it is poorly ventilated. With small windows only at the side of the restaurant, be prepared to smell of BBQ meat and smoke after eating. Other than that, this is a must go for all BBQ fanatics.

It is perpetually crowded and there is always a queue outside as no reservation is allowed for the buffet dinner. The place is cramped and hot and stuff and noisy and smokey, BUT, the food makes it all worth it.

There may not be a large variety of meat available, but the quality of meat and the tastiness of the food available is amazing. It makes leaving the restaurant with a layer of oil on your face extremely worth it.

They even provide febreeze at the stairs for you to get rid of the bbq smell on your shirt.

Do go early before the buffet starts, as there will most probably be a queue. It's a popular place as the price is reasonable for the amount and variety of meat they serve. Also, there's the sweet rice drink (shikhye) available! Sadly, when I went there on a Sunday night, it was out of stock.

The staff would change the aluminium foil on the hot plate frequently, making sure that there wouldn't be much charred pieces left on it. Compared to other bbq buffet joints, where it's difficult to get the staff to help, they're autonomous and come even before you call them. The hot plate is tilted, so the oil from all the meat drips out, which doesn't make it too oily. The place is rather warm, so dress cool. You'll definitely leave this place smelling like BBQ, but it's worth it. Besides just eating, get a few bottles of soju too! It goes well with all the meat you'll be eating. If soju is too strong, get a bottle of beer and mix with some soju shots. It's a refreshing drink.

Oh, good luck if you're going in a big group. A group of 6 got squeezed into a tight table for 4, and it made BBQing and eating a little uncomfortable. But it's alright when there's all that food to distract you from it!

For a regular buffet spot, they are really attentive with great service. My friend had some difficulty in refilling the water bottles placed at our table and the service staff readily offered his help and replaced our bottle with a full one, and bigger too (so that we wouldnt have to keep going over to the refilling area)

I like how they have the meat in large pieces as it helps to retain the juices, because i've always felt that the small slivers of meat tend to dry out quickly while grilling. Also, the fresh lettuce that they provide really do allow you to dine like how koreans do, to wrap the grilled meat in the lettuce to prevent the meal from getting too heavy. The slanted grill also helps the oil to flow off, making the meal lighter compared to other grilled meat buffets.

I really like how they flavour their food, with the meat properly marinated and the flavour of the seasoning all the way through the meat. They also have other authentic korean soups and dishes, which was done really well.

Go early, if not, its almost impossible to get a table during dinner hours

There is no escaping the Hallyu Wave. The Korean craze has swept everybody up one way or another and with the recent popping up of so many Korean BBQ eateries, korean cuisine has become more available than ever.

This is arguably the most economical BBQ buffet there is out there. There is a wide selection of meat and sides which all taste pretty decent (and nicely marinated) although you will not get the very tender or high quality beef. Considering the price however, this is a steal. For all your carnivores out there, this place should not be missed. Free flow of korean sweet rice drinks are available to soothe your throats are rounds of sinful 'heaty' food.

I would definitely recommend you try this at least once but it does get crazily packed at night so do go there early! You can make reservations although I have heard plenty of complaints about the reservations getting mixed up or miscommunication happening. The waiters will clear your plates once in a while and change the foil on the grill but don't expect good service, hardly any of the staff smiles or speaks even (maybe they're Koreans, I'm not sure).

A word of caution, it will get very very hot and stuff inside the restaurant so shave off the layers of clothes and keep it simple to shirt and shorts. The noise is expected with the crowd but it's not too bad. Overall, this is still a great choice for inexpensive decent Korean BBQ you can eat to your hearts content.

2d1n Soju Bang would be one of my most frequent visited BBQ buffet restaurant in Singapore. Their buffet price is affordable (approximately $20/pax). Not only that, they have a lot kinds of meat for you to choose from.

Some of the favorite meat that I liked most would be their pork belly and beef steak. The meat that they have on the buffet line is fresher than other Korean BBQ buffet, as I believe that their turnover is fast. Not only do they have meat, they also do have Korean rice, seaweed soup and a lot other for you to have.

The down-side of this restaurant is that for the buffet side, it is not air-conditioned but rather warm as you are barbequing in a shop-house, with the windows opened. They do have fan placed around the shop-house to ventilate the area, at least it helps to prevent it from being too warm. Also, all the staffs are Korean. There might be a bit of language barrier between you and them.

On weekends and public holiday, if you are planning to dine there, be expected to wait for approximately 45 minutes to get your table, as it is often full-house. So if you wouldn't like to queue, it'd be better to reach at 5+ to avoid having a long wait for your table.

Thus place is worth dining in if you don't mind dining in a warm but a value-for-money buffet!
