Love this place; absolute fav when I'm down Bournemouth. Small, can get a bit packed & looks like chaos - ITS NOT. The team/family are always friendly, you are in no rush to leave. Food is to die for, cooked in front of you. Good drinks selection- traditional to a point. Definitely recommend

Excellent service which was friendly speedy but not with a sense you were being rushed, If you have never had Korean food before they will happily guide you through the menu. As I eat alone I can't justify the grill but have watched enviously as parties of people really enjoy that experience. Good soju well worth trying if you haven't... More

Had a dinner here. Food is good, but payment is dodgy. You get a discount if not using card to pay, so we opted for cash. After we paid the staff never came back with our change. It is a matter of principle not about the actual money. So if you go make sure you chase them up about this... More

I was invited to try Korean food by a very old friend and met him and his 2 lovely half Korean young daughters. John offered to order the food and so we started with kimchi and then had the grill where a waitress helps cook the food. We had 2 different cuts of pork and some beef. These meats are... More

Fast service Friendly staff Great ambience Food was fantastic. Id recommend trying the spicy chicken bulgogi if your exposure to korean food is new. Youll find the food was worth trying. However this place is always full so come early if you want a table.

this is a nice little resteraunt in a good location. The food is not bad, but i have to say there are better korean resteraunts in Bournemouth. Whilst i found the food was quite good, albeit overloaded with sugar somewhat, which is shame as it didnt really need it, the service felt like chaos/rushed, or this how the watiress came... More

We've searched many a place to find good, authentic, delicious Korean BBQ and finally found the one. The beef bulgogi, and vege pancake were especially great, and their sides were also excellent quality. Everything is very reasonably priced. Definitely will return when we're in the area again!

Very much enjoyed our trip to Korean Grill for a light Sunday lunch where we sampled delicious courses such as Spicy Octopus with noodles and Soya bean soup. Service was efficient and friendly. Agree with some of the other reviewers regarding the tired decor but don't let it put you off a great meal. Only slightly disappointed at the end... More

I've always wanted to experience the traditional korean method of grilled meat. And through research, I finally found this fantastic place, which went beyond expectation. The atmosphere reminds me of traditional korean culture. And along with the kpop music playing in the background, I almost forgot I was in England!!! It was my first time trying grilled meat, so I...
