Had dinner here with six friends a few weeks back. Good atmosphere, service was good, the food was great, although my friends tricked me into eating tongue ! Was great to be able to cook your own meats at the table, did get a bit smoky at times. Great place to go with friends a share a table of assorted... More

We had dinner there with our 2 kids. It pays to book in advance if you want to get a nice table at the back of the restaurant. We hadn't so were seated close to the entrance. The BBQ menu was fantastic, particularly the beef and pork and the side dishes that come with it can be refilled for free.... More

I have walked by this location often but never visited. I am glad I finally did. I had a hot pot bulgogi. It was delicious and came with rice on the side. There were several small side dishes of various items such as fish flakes and bean sprouts. Plus, the server would give you one refill on the small sides.... More

We come here for lunches fairly regularly. The food is very good, and the specials are $15 for a whole set... I'm a fan. Note this is a better place than the Newmarket outfit.

After eating Malaysian food at Sri Pinang in Auckland, my son wanted to continue his experiments with Asian cuisine and selected Faro from Trip Advisor (where else) for his first Korean dining experience. We hadn't booked and the restaurant was busy but it was a very short wait until a table came free. The menu offers a lot of choice... More

A group of 15 went here on a Wednesday night for a end of university celebration. This restaurant is BYOW. We were situated in a semi-private area which was great for atmosphere. The service was impeccable and the meat being cooked in front of you was also a great experience. Most importantly, the food was amazing and all 15 of... More

Came on Sunday night, got there at 6pm waited oved an hour for a table, and they kept lying to us about how long the wait would be. The host kept saying 5 more minutes which was a blatant lie. There was a lot of smog which made the experience unbareble.They left the door open which is a safety hazard... More

Very nice Korean interior, quality finishes & decoration. We had one of the fixed dishes rather than the cook own own BBQ. Great food, lovely flavours. Good service. Great value

Went with 8 others for lunch... Really appealing and clean menu (a lot of times restaurants let themselves down with dirty menus). The lunch options were really tasty - tried some of others in the group. Good value too.
