Summary: This family-owned Korean restaurant literally means "Fortune to our Customers" and offers Korean BBQ and sushi buffet. Regular entrees may be ordered off the menu as well. Recognized as one of the top Korean food establishments in Northern Virginia, Hee-Been is a great place to come with groups.

Keith and I went here for lunch with my parents. We sat at a table with a table-top grill built in and immediately headed to the buffet area to choose some sushi as starters. Various salads, noodles, and other prepared meats are also available. On the end side are the selections of seasoned raw meats that you can bring back to your table to cook. It provides a fun and social experience for the table. Since it is a buffet set up, you can return as many times as you like to sample each thing, however they do encourage you take only what you really plan to eat so as not to waste. High quality, natural ingredients are featured throughout all the authentic Korean delicacies. The food was very good and we enjoyed ourselves.
