It is very good, we enjoy the BBQ and the soju. We had a good time with my family. We paid 400$ for 12, we had different kind of meat and soupe. The sauce is excellent also

This was our first time at a Korean BBQ and we really enjoyed it. The restaurant was spacious and the staff very willing to assist when we advised them this was our first time. Our food arrived quickly and staff set up the table BBQ plate and kept turning and adding our food. Accompaniments were very tasty as were the... More

Being upstairs, the restaurant is not directly visible and could not gawk in but was pleasantly surprised with a spacious and welcoming venue. Arrived for dinner around 8 but last orders were already being called. Whilst feeling a tad rushed, the service was friendly and the food was good, amidst a flurry of activity by the staff almost desperate to... More

We ordered the Korean BBQ mixed platter consisting of Beef Pork Chicken. ($75) this feed 3 people no problems. Drinks were very reasonable. You can... More

We over ordered in a major way. Excellent quality food in a loud and basic setting. Quite a sweet approach to marinade and the combination grill was great value.

Serving are little with only 3 side dishes provided. Service is poor, we asked for side dishes to be replenished, staff just took away our plates without returning.

So I've frequented this place a lot for the past 3 or so years. My first time there I was so excited. It was all new to me. But an impression stuck with me that day, and it was mainly the staff members. At the time, the only friendly ones were the managers (who I haven't seen ever again). The... More

I have been to this restaurant a lot, they have a fantastic $10 lunch menu which comes with honey boiled potatoes and Kim chi. A personal favourite is the spicy pork set menu.

Been here on numerous occasions and have never been disappointed with the food. Staff can sometimes be a bit snobby but other than that it is a great place and has amazing food.

We have been this Korean BBQ several times and haven't been disappointed. If you get the meat platters, you can have it cooked at your table by the staff, or you can ask to do it yourself. Steak is always nice. Tried the spicy marinated pork this time, and it was great, just remember to drink water :)

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving up age-old recipes. The lighting may be unromantic, the patrons loud, and the service no-nonsense, but the food is sensational.
