I recently went to Genwa, as it was rated pretty highly on Yelp.
I had 2 friends who dislike spicy and aren't adventurous at all with limited experience in korean food. We had to wait 30 mins for a table (no reservations), and the prices at Genwa are kinda high (around $40 a person) so they were also kinda peeved. However, once the 23 side dishes hit the table, plus the fresh meat, they were sold! One friend even ate spicy food.
The side ribs were my favorite! Though the rest of the table loved the beef tongue (which was also pretty good).
