A short walk from Novotel Lakeside Rotorua Hotel, along the EatStreet, this restaurant was not very striking and captured our attention only because we were craving for Korean food. The beef bulgogi was really flavorful and tender; marinade was to the sweet side which was how we liked it. Kimchi soup was heavenly robust and packed with the spicy-sourish punch... More

Home style Korean cooking. Not very inspiring but not difficult to eat either. Service is good. Seafood soup noodle has PATHETIC amount of seafood in it. 1 Mussel with shell plus a small prawn. Should have asked for beef or chicken.

You get greeted by a rude Chinese Korean waiter who I am sure has overstayed his visa. Not at all friendly (he clearly not done his Army Service) . Now to the food while my family is Korean we were shoved into a side area because we did not want to eat the awful smorgasbord on offer (the food looked... More

This was my first experience of Korean food. Despite then fact that I discovered that Korean food is not my thing, this gets a high rating. The best recommendation is that the restaurant was full, and we were the only non- Korean's there - always a good indication that this is authentic and excellent food. The decor is basic, one...

Hardest working hostess kept a full house going with delicious Korean fare at reasonable prices. Simply decorated family run joint that won't disappoint.

The price us ok, but we didnt want ti order noodles meal cuz on menu it seems like just korean instant noodles. We order bibimbap, it was ok. But sizzling spicy squid was really good, and I like the side dishes.

Came here with my wife as we wanted something spicy and the Thai restaurant next door was quite pricey :D Service - A bit on slow side as there's only one chef but the service was efficient (only one wait staff/manager) and friendly.
