Today, I would like to introduce you to a Korean buffet chain called Ashley Queens. A buffet-style family restaurant. At the begining it was called Ashley not queens. but this restaurant opened in the early 2000s and was popular with Koreans. However, its popularity declined over time, and upscale versions were opened, adding sushi or bbq menus. That’s Ashley Queens, a restaurant I’d like to introduce today.

There are not only pasta and steak here, but also Korean food, so it is a recommended place for those who want to taste various foods. In particular, you can eat unlimited beer and wine at affordable price.
