Located on McCully Street, this yakiniku-style eatery has more than 50 items to choose from, running the spectrum of main dishes such as kal-bi, bulgogi, flap meat and oysters to irresistible banchan (side dishes) as kimchi, taegu and more.

The lunch buffet ($14.95) is served from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. while the dinner buffet ($21.95) is available from 2:30 to 10 p.m.

Diners are given the opportunity to cook their food on tabletops, a guaranteed fun activity for the entire family.

“We only use ‘A-grade’ beef,” says long-time server Kelly Park. “In terms of our flap meat, kal-bi and bulgogi, it’s all very tender. The beef rib-eye is also very popular.”

The secret behind the flavorful meat can be credited to Camellia Buffet’s magnificent marinade of shoyu, sugar, garlic ginger and other secret ingredients.

Crowds also can’t seem to get enough of the fresh oysters that recently hit the buffet line. Imported straight from Korea, the oysters are only available Friday through Sunday as part of the dinner buffet.

“We also have sashimi that the locals love to pair with their meal, along with the Korean pancakes,” Park states.

Then for dessert, cleanse your palate with a refreshing selection of fruit and ice cream.
