Josun Korean Grill’s experienced chefs dazzle diners with a menu of Korean fusion cuisine served in a modern, elegant dining room. In the pork egg roll, tendrils of glass noodles snake around pork and vegetables within a deep-fried envelope, ready to ship to eager stomachs without assistance from a Forever stamp ($3.50). A lightly salted pollock fillet debates the merits of surf and turf with banchan and steamed rice on the grilled pollock platter ($10.50), and chefs prepare the seafood jun-gol hot pot in front of customers' awestruck peepers, uniting assorted seafood with noodles in a spicy stew ($12.95). A half-rack of special Josun barbecue pork ribs soak in Korean spices before upstaging banchan and provoking white rice to get really steamed ($11.95).
Padded black booths surround grills beneath gleaming hoods, which reflect the glow of sunset-orange walls as they sweep away rising warm air and spice-steeped aromas. On Palace Korean Bar & Grill's tabletop skillets, chefs sizzle menu items such as pearlescent curlicues of kimchi and cuts of seafood as well as bulgogi, spicy slices of brisket also known as Korean barbecue. During the all-you-can-eat special, silverware jangles endlessly like a knight looking for his car keys as diners tuck into bottomless helpings of marinated beef short ribs, tender marble brisket, spicy pork belly, and jumbo shrimp.
It's no surprise that Akasaka Restaurant, named after a neighborhood in Tokyo, offers traditional Japanese specialties. Diners tuck into freshly sliced sashimi, seasonal imports of Kobe beef, and shabu shabu hot pots of seaweed-infused broth in which diners can simmer morsels of beef or seafood. But according to The Seattle Times, there's another showstopper: "It's hard to get past the great Korean food at this longtime Federal Way favorite."
On tabletop grills, guests can broil hand-cut short ribs, slices of scarlet bulgogi beef, and other korean meats to their liking. Servers present more than a dozen types of housemade kimchi and other korean banchan to accompany savory meals, along with glasses of sake, whiskey, and Asian beer.

At every location, patrons delight in chicken, shrimp, beef, tofu, and vegetables clinging to jasmine rice and noodles while watching flat-screen TVs and celebrating this Chinese New Year, the Year of the Heffalump.

Sura Korean Restaurant's master chef, Paul Kim, gives diners the opportunity to make their own Korean barbecue on personal tabletop grills. At granite-topped tables, fresh veggies go for a dip in shabu shabu hot pots, a traditional Japanese fondue of lemon ponzu or sesame dipping sauce, and savory slices of barbecue pork or beef brisket sizzle on metal grates. The dining room sports sleek, modern decor punctuated by dark-wood chairs.
