Was looking forwards to visiting here after watching Jamie's superfoods. We had ribs, chicken wings and cod fritters for starters. Ribs were very dry and tough. This theme continued with the three main BBQ meals. The duck was dry and tiny pieces. The belly pork was really thin and resembled bacon. I was expecting a juicy thick piece. The beef... More

We work nearby and decided we to try this place. It's not on street level and the decor is a little dated but the service was warm and friendly. We opted for the business lunch and one colleague tried the set menu. The starters of vegetable dumplings were tasty, chicken skewers were a tad bland. I tried the bento box... More

Tried this place on a recommendation from a friend and was pleasantly surprised the food was tasty and not to expensive. A little bit different and a friendly relaxed atmosphere.

You need to book here, a week in advanced should be ok. We went for the banquet which cost £20.50 a head and is for a minimum of 2 people. I had the spare rinse the chicken skewers and beef bulgogi and a Korean rice cake with fig and walnuts in it. It came with vanilla ice cream. The beef... More

My girlfriend and I popped in here on a Tuesday thinking we would definitely get a table but it was rammed! There was a lot of Korean groups here so you get the indication it must be good. We booked a table for 45 minutes later and were seated straight away. We chose dishes from the banquet set menu, thinking... More

The Korean food are under standard level, especially soup is a very small amount and sold at a high price. Rice cakes are not fully cooked, it is the first time in my life that I had a rice cake which took long time to swallow. They are so hard.

We have been to this restaurant many times, as there is not many choices of decent Korean restaurants in Manchester apart from Seoul Kimchi. The outside of the restaurant is not much to look at but when you go downstairs into the restaurant its a pleasing atmosphere, the food was great, kimchi pancake was good though it was quite thick...

We visit this restaurant back in April 2016 and I can say that we had a really pleasant experience. We tried the korean barbecue which was exceptional. Worth the visit and the money.
