Ombu Grill All You Can Eat Korean BBQ Near Provo

By Katerina Gasset

As a self-proclaimed foodie, I am excited to try out all the amazing restaurants in Provo/Orem, and Ombu Grill has become one of my favorites. 

Ombu Grill All You Can Eat Korean BBQ is a popular all-you-can-eat restaurant near Provo (Orem), offering a wide variety of authentic, a high-quality Korean BBQ menu. 

I first discovered Ombu Grill during one of my sons’ birthdays. I wanted to take him to a restaurant close to us in Provo, Utah, but we didn’t want the typical burger joint and no pizza. 

Carnivores love their meat, and so do my sons and most of my daughters too. 

What better place to have fun and eat all the meats you want than a Korean BBQ!

Everything is served family style. You are given some little plates, chopsticks, tongs, and a pair of scissors to cut your meat.

The Best Korean Dishes Served at Ombu Grill

We started with two appetizers, as we wanted to keep our bellies empty for the meats we were planning to order. 

We ordered Korean-style fried dumplings. These are soft, yet a bit crunchy on the outside, and have great flavor on the inside. We also ordered the fried shrimp, which was also pretty good. Next time, I would save the room for more grilled meats. 

Kimchi Fried Rice Served at Ombu Grill Korean BBQ Restaurant

My granddaughter wanted fried rice. I absolutely loved the Kimchi fried rice! Just the right tang and a nice reddish color from the kimchi. Yummy! 

You order from the menu and the servers bring each plate of food to your table. Then you share, adding some of each food item to your little plate and pass it around. 

We ordered the pork belly, the sirloin steak, and the beef tongue first.

The waitress came over to our table and lit our grill for us. We waited for it to get hot. 

Then you use your tongs to add the meats to the grill and cook them to your liking. 

The beef tongue was excellent! The pork belly was delicious. The sirloin steak was cooked exactly how I like it.

The next round of orders we ordered:

The prime beef brisket, Ombu signature beef tenderloin, Hawaiian beef steak, and Korean beef bulgogi (super yummy). 

The prime beef brisket was so juicy and flavorful, with a perfect smoky taste. It was a big hit, so I’m sure you’ll all love it.

The Ombu signature beef tenderloin was also really good – it had a nice richness to it we all enjoyed. And the Hawaiian beef steak had this amazing sweet and savory glaze that made it irresistible. 

But the best dish had to be the Korean beef bulgogi. 

After that, we ordered the spicy pork belly, the cajun shrimp, and the Kimchi soft tofu soup pot. 

If you can’t tell by now, I love my kimchi! I bought a huge container from Costco, kept it in my refrigerator, and eat it with most of my dinners. 

We were quite full by this time. I missed being able to order the beef stone bibimbap - which is also one of my favorite Korean dishes. But we were too stuffed to order any more food. Oh well, maybe next time. 

Since it was my son’s birthday, the waitress brought him a mango mochi with cream on top and a candle in the middle! So fun! Then they played the happy birthday song over their speaker system. We all sang along. We clapped and cheered as he blew out the candle. It was quite the nice touch to the end of this amazing dinner.

We love to eat steak tar-tar, but I don’t recommend you eat the steak raw at Ombu. You don’t know how cold they keep the meats in the cooler.

What is the ambience like at Ombu Grill?

There are plenty of seating in the Orem location. The restaurant is set up like most Korean BBQ restaurants – you have your grill in the middle of the table and then around your table are various sauces, vegetables, and meats. 

You grill your food right at your table, which makes for an interactive dining experience. 

Ombu Korean is always crowded, but that’s a good sign – it means the food is amazing! The all-you-can-eat setup is perfect for those with a hearty appetite. 

I notice they were selling keychains and a few other items at the front counter in case you want to get a little gift for someone.

Ombu Grill Dine In Reminders

There are some rules to follow. 

Ombu Korean restaurant does not like you to waste food. DO NOT order more than you can eat. 

Although it is one price for all you can eat, make sure to eat all they bring to you, or you will get charged for what you waste. 

You are allowed to order 4 items at a time per person. We were a party of 4 and I made my own rule; only order one item per person at a time to make sure we could eat it all. 

Remember, your eyes will be larger than your stomach!

In Southern California, they have some of the best Korean restaurants I have ever been to. 

I knew it would be tough to find a contender here in Provo and Orem. 

But we did. 

I highly recommend making reservations at Ombu Grill. They offer an all you can eat buffet-style Korean BBQ, and it’s definitely some of the best I’ve had.

About the author of Move to Provo Utah Website 

Katerina Gasset

When I moved here I was blessed to have my daughter to help with different things you need to know when you move to a new place. I had background from living here before but things have changed a lot too since the '80s. 

We were able to get all the good places to eat down fast - since she knows all that and we have a lot of the same likes in food. But things like how to turn on my electricity or what power company services my home... well... I was at a total loss! 

I know that other people moving to Provo don't always have family here to guide and help them. And most people don't have a real estate agent who gives them a welcome package on all the important numbers and places they need to know. 

My goal is for this website to be your go to resource for everything you need to know before, during, and after you move here to Provo, Utah. I want you to have the best experience and love living here as much as I do
