We went on boxing day for a family dinner. Food was great as usual - their side dishes never disappoint you. The restaurant is clean and well-decorated. I would definitely recommend this place if you are craving for good Korean food:)

Went there with a group of friends about 10 of us. The atmosphere and decor of the restaurant is great. Had to make a reservation before hand and this place tends to get busy for dinners. The food was great and had a lot of choices. Totally enjoyed the food and service here.

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
