Last night I went to dinner out with my parents, and we decided we were going to try a new restaurant recommended by my mom’s coworker.
Dong Bang Grill is a Korean restaurant located just about five minutes off the George Washington Bridge in Fort Lee, New Jersey. We got there around 6:00 in the evening, it was the perfect time to go because it was just before it got busy.
The ambiance was nice, you have to climb up stairs to the second floor, where the tables and other furniture are all made of dark wood. It is also interesting and a great surprise that even after the restaurants filled with people, the noise level stayed low. The wait staff were all wearing headsets — each time they take an order, they phone in the order so it’s ready for them and they can serve to the tables much faster.
The food was very good. Everything was fresh, from the side dishes to the meats (the galbi was superb) and even the fish (which my mom ordered). It was definitely a good Friday night dinner experience.
Dong Bang restaurant rating: 8 out of 10
