This will be only the third online review I have ever made about a restaurant in my life. They have all been tonight and they have all been about the same restaurant. I have never been so disgusted by both food an service. For starters

I'm on the fence about Dokebi. I only went here once and I have a sneaking suspicion that I should have ordered something else. NY Mag recommended the bibimbap, but it was so flavorless I was so disappointed. Keejoo is right, there was hardly any pork in my bibimbap either. In fact the pieces were so tiny it was like bacon-bits.

The tuna/avocado salad was delicious, a little too lemony but a great cut of tuna. Cinnamon gelato was heaven. I must go back and try a better entree, maybe something that I can cook on the table grill? I'd love suggestions from yall!

I happened to find this place while staggering around Williamsburg last weekend, and was absolutely blown away by their brunch menu.

I will be honest, I was extremely skeptical at first. This was the first time that I'd eaten at Dokebi's and I didn't quite know what to expect. It took one bite of the Radish Kimchee with a dab of their Chipotle Crema- a spicy, smoking cream sauce that came with my meal- to answer any questions about their quality.

The food was absolutely amazing!!! I ordered a 3 egg dish with potato cake and Radish Kimchee and thought I'd died and gone to heaven. Everything about the meal was on target. It was light, flavorful, and all well conceived. I even ordered their traditional house Kimchee and this became another instant fave of mine.This was my first Dokebi dining experience, but it will definitely not be my last.

Pros: The unique food combinations.

.

So, I love Shabu Shabu! It's an amazing tasting, clean, fresh, and healthy way to eat.
I like Shabu Tatsu and Lan (both in LES), but i LOVE the Shabu Shabu at Dokebi.
What I love about it here over the other two is very simple. They all do it pretty well but with tiny differences.
Dokebi's shabu has like 4 different kinds of mushrooms and they are all FRESH! You get dried shitake mushrooms at Shabu Tatsu. The sauces are the next most important thing for this dish. Dokebi's sauces are awesome. the endless stream of FREE Korean sides are also amazing. Their Purple wild rice? Amazing!

Finally, they deliver all of this in a really nice, superbly designed, clean space with excellent: MUSIC, FULL BAR, HOT PEOPLE!!!

I love this place and it's hands down the SHABU SHABU winner in NYC...
any of you other shabu enthusiasts agree with me and the post before me? or let me know after you try them.

I go here at least once every other week, particularly when it's cold! I love it. To be honest we only ever eat the Shabu Shabu. I tried a couple other dishes but wasn't too impressed. But for the Shabu Shabu, you won't find much better in NY. In fact there is only one I've tried that even compares (shabu Tatsu) and even then I prefer Dokebi. The meat is fresh, the sauces are great, you get kimchi and a salad free with your meal and service is good too.

My wife and I visited Dokebi tonight. We ordered dosut bibimbap and nakgi-bokum. The dishes came out around 5 minutes apart. The bibimbap was average, but the stone bowl wasn't even close to sizzling. Too bad I had paid an extra $2 for the stone bowl. The nakgi-bokum was horrible. Easily the worst stir-fried squid I've ever tasted. The sauce tasted more like Chinese fast food than decent Korean. The side dishes were passable, and I did get a refill upon request.

The real problem I had with this place was the complete lack of service. I mentioned the squid dish wasn't very good when the waitress visited. She just nodded and walked off. There were no communications issues either, as she spoke perfect English. As to my comment about the food, no apology or acknowledgment was made. My wife had barely touched that mess of a dish. We were charged full price.

If you ware looking for Korean fusion, I suggest you try some of the places in the East Village. Authentic Korean food lovers should visit 32nd Street, of course.

Pros: Cold Beer

Cons: Horrible Food, Overpriced, Terrible Service

This place and reading the reviews about this place just tells me how Korean food is misunderstood. There's been numerous articles in the NY TIMES about Korean food and restaurants in the past few years, yet places like this and people "loving" the food here just tells me that NY is far away from really embracing Korean food. The food here either lacks any flavor or is salted and spiced to all hell. Korean food has a tricky balance with spicy, sweet, and delicate that this place is clueless about. I've been here with multiple friends and tried pretty much everything on the menu. I really really really wanted to like this place, but I have to be honest and sadden that there still isn't a Korean restaurant in Williamsburg. The chapchae is greasy and oily, the stir fry is greasy and oily, the bokums are greasy and oily-- (see a trend developing here?). The kalbi (short ribs) are tough and inedible. The bulgohki (angus) is stringy...Just take my word for it when I say that the food here tastes worse than my testicles.

The service is helpful, but very Williamsburg-- meaning they pretty much do whatever they want. The multiple times I've been there (lunch, dinner, weekdays, weekends) the service has been consistently efficient but depending on who serves you it can be pretty unprofessional aka Williamsburg-y, like eating in front of the register, chewing gum, etc. One chick started doing stretches in the middle of the dining area while text messaging. I found that kind of amusing but at the same time reminded me how dumb little Barbie girls are moving into the neighborhood.

Anyway, I think I'll just stick to the Thai, American, Japanese, and diners that overrun the neighborhood and just wait for the day that Korean food is done right. Maybe people will understand Korean food as well and force this place to make something worth eating. I'm sad that I had to spend so much money there in the hopes of finding a revelation.

Pros: Bar in the back.

Cons: It's hot, the food, the food, the food, the food, and it's hot.

We heard of Dokebi from a friend of ours who lives in Williamsburg. She had been raving about this place since last summer. We finally made it to Brooklyn last Thursday.

The space was well designed with a nice touch of traditional Korean/Japanese woodworking. We really liked the use of real hardwoods with traditional jointery.
The music was surprisingly good. They had a great selection of classic rock, 80?s punk, funk, new wave, and a great indie selection as well. We, twice asked our server for the names of songs which we wanted to get a hold of. It was nice to be in a Korean restaurant where you can actually have a conversation with the server.
The food surpassed all of our expectations. The soondubu was excellent and super spicy, the banchan was simple but sufficient which left us to concentrate on our double order of Kalbi. They have undervented grills so you never get exposed to the famous Korean BBQ stink (the place smelled awesome). The meat came out looking super fresh. I could tell they are using really good cuts. It was marbleized enough to have great taste but, there were no large pieces of fat which I am used to having to avoid while eating BBQ. The marinade was also really good. It had all of the taste of traditional BBQ without the usual over sugaring and salting. It?s like they actually wanted you to taste the meat. Refreshing! Needless to say, my girlfriend and I really enjoyed our meal at Dokebi. It was like someone with some common sense finally opened a Korean place.

Dokebi also has a really nice romantic bar in the back for lite food and full bar. Try it out. You?ll love it.

Cons: I live in manhattan

We love Dokebi! It's a great answer to Korean food in W'burg when you can't get to 32nd street in Manhattan. It's also cozy and homey, and the service is always great when we go. It can get a little expensive, and they skimp a little on the ban chan (pickled apps), but overall we can't complain! Whenever I'm feeling down and I want some comfort food (soondubu soups, bibimbop, etc) I come here.

Pros: Great homestyle food in hip neighborhood

Cons: Expensive, charges extra for lettuce wrap and pickled apps

I LOVE dokebi! The food is awesome and it's so fresh. The seaweed salad is really good, and so is the mushroom stir-fry and vegetable table grill. I've tried a lot of different dishes there, and I haven't been disappointed by a single one. I love the atmosphere-it's not typical korean, they play great music, and they've got a bar in the back..WITH more than just johnnie black and coors light, like most places in ktown! (boo) Also, the place is really clean. I peeked into the window of the kitchen, and wow, I was impressed. It gets pretty busy on the weekends, and I can see why. It's a fun place to eat and hang out with your friends, or even for family dinners. I would definately recommend this restaurant to anyone who's a fan of korean food. Oh, and the fig and hazelnut ice cream is delicious.

finally something a bit different - not traditional and not wanna be yuppie, a good fit for the neighborhood. food is better than average, the detail in the decor is pretty fascinating and overall vibe is great...they even have a bar scene.

Pros: the food & overall vibe

After having read a couple of negative reviews, I had been avoiding Dokebi, but several american friends of mine finally talked me into going there for dinner last week. They all spoke so highly of it after having been so i went. The place has a really offbeat feel to it and it's not what I would have expected from a korean place even in Williamsburg.

over all, the food was pretty delicious, the service was as good as any place i've been to around here, and i really had a great time there. i'm a little annoyed for having avoided this place as long as i have, considering how much i really like korean food. Either the place has changed drastically or the some of the negative reviews were a bit off?

I recommend this place for anyone who likes korean food but doesn't want to deal with korea-town. Disregard some of those negative reviews and go in with no expectations and you will be pleasantly surprised.... :)

wasn't sure what they were, cause they didn't have a sign or anything, but it was packed. i soon discovered why... the food is great and they have excellent beers. the crowd is laid back, ecclectic and local. the music is awesome. the decore is unpretentious and filled with hand crafted woodwork.
i'm korean-american and know the food very well. they do things a bit different there, but everything on their menu is yummy! they've created a great restaurant which doesn't fit the typical korean BBQ mold. they've taken authentic dishes and presented them in an tasteful setting with a great selection of spirits and GOOD TASTING beers.
also, read some unfavorable reviews of the place and seriously puzzled... try it for yourself. it's different from 32nd street (on purpose)...

Cons: weekends too crowed

You call this Korean Food.....you must be drunk...talk about flavor or lack of flavor....and the Tiny Portions of "so called Angus beef " nice try with the name it just the same type of beef used in most Korean restaurants except the portions are so small you are embarrassed to your guest.....Over priced, service is slow, and Most important the Food is not Traditional Korean......they don't even give you any side dishes....you have to pay for it.....outrageous

I've been to Dokebi probably ten times. The Food is awesome. I've gotten something different each time. The table grills are great if you're on a date or with a big group of people. I highly recommend the Bulgohki bibimbahp in the DolSut, cooked in this stone couldron.

Also, the bar (which has its own entrance on north 1st) is very cool and a good place to get drinks even if you're not eating. A good sake selection, hot and cold. Good draft beers. Good service. Cool eclectic music selection.

Also, lots of cute girls to be seen at Dokebi.

I've been there about 20 times and everytime has been an absolute pleasure. They don't do things like all of the places on 32nd st. (thank g-d). the food is excellent and all made in house of amazing ingredients. the owner told me they avoid MSG like the plague and it shows in the clean fresh taste of the food. they have a REAL beer selection instead of the b/s selection at the other korean places in the city. I love this place and it's so fun to hang out there.

i was very excited to hear that there was a korean restaurant in williamsburg so i decided to take a friend there for his birthday dinner. the decor was a little mismatched, the lighting kept changing, and the music was all over the place. i ordered the kimchi sampler, steak cubes, and boolgolgi on the grill. the meats came with rice, a salad, and three little sides. i asked what was in the sides and the waitress couldn't tell me, turns out two of the items were in the kimchi sampler. the kimchi and other sides were off, the rice had red bean mixed in, and the waitress gave us a double order of the bulgogi instead of two single orders of different meats. the bbq was not bad, but just not authentic. i'd rather make the trek out to ktown to get the real thing.
