I will definitely be returning to this Korean gem. Bibimbap is quite a simple dish, however it was very tasty, especially after adding a bit of gochujang and soy sauce. It was served in a stone bowl therefore the bibimbap remained hot throughout the time...More

Came here for dinner with family and was pleasantly surprised by the size of the servings given the relatively cheap prices. All the meat was cooked perfectly and tasted amazing. The staff were all great and catered to our needs. Would love to visit again.

A wider variety of choices here, good for lunches. Korea Bibimbap was very tasty, the stone bowl was so hot that the food was hot till the end of the meal. Don't burn your fingers.

feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the

never quite know what you’ll find around the next

even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
