It was my first visit and I've visited all the Korean restaurants in Manchester, this is definitely the most authentic and delicious one! The place is fairly small but has a 'home cooked food' atmosphere with friendly staff. It is relatively cheap and food is freshly cooked. Vegetarian friendly too!

It's small restaurant with around 10 seating but food is freshly cooked and taste delicious . I tried few dishes here taste is nice but portions are really small so if you hungry you need to order two to three dishes . 😀

I had a Korean Beef Bowl with the usual sides, kimchi, soya beans and pickled cucumber. The rice was unsalted, but the soup was well seasoned. One of the chefs actually mentioned that he'd had a flavorful bone that day.

I love the food here - always tasty, delicious and heart warming. The place is quite small and cosy but the staff are always friend and welcoming. My favourite Korean restaurant in Manchester!

We had spicy chicken and Korean spicy rice cake. I just gave 4 stars because the restaurant was a bit far from city centre.... More

This place genuinely serves authentic Korean food, been there a couple of times this month and everything I had has been really nice. Absolutely a recommended place to go if you want to try real Korean food!
