Intimate space serving great Korean delicacies. Can be a little noisy when full. Also great for healthy takeaway if you're not up for a sit down meal.

Donco is a really great find. While the meals aren’t huge they are designed to be shared and are pretty cost effective. All meals were delicious. I would’ve given this place a five if they had made even the slightest attempt to assist us with...splitting the bill.More

We love Donco! We eat here quite often. But it does get quite busy sometimes so it’s a good idea to book a table. If not - they also do take away! The food is always delicious and the staff are great. Definitely recommend eating...here if you haven’t already!More

Cozy place, friendly staff. Our first time there and did not really know what food to order and ended up having menu items that turned up to be average, but that is just to our taste. Lots of other dinners seemed to be really enjoying...their food. What we had were not bad, its just we did not enjoy them as much as we should have.More

Called here on a last minute chance booking and was not disappointed overall. Good range of dishes, small eats to major meals. Veggie to full carnivores. Service was very courteous, small hiccup in that the lamb dish was about 10 minutes behind the other 5...but was worth the wait. Pity that the sweet potato was drowned by the sauce but the lamb itself was beautiful and tender and tasty. Seaweed salad was on the salty side I guess to be expected. Good choice of drinks. Enjoyed the evening.More

This is a lovely little restaurant with some great food. Order about 6 sides for a meal for 3 and you’ll be full. Make sure you leave room for the green tea and black sesame ice cream, it’s to die for!!!

On our way somewhere else and then last minute went here. Great place with great food. We had a couple of sharing dishes and rice bowl with salmon. All beautifully presented and taste was great. All of our dishes were very different to each other...and each offered a unique taste experience.More

Hadn’t been to Donco for some time, noted that the decor had been updated and it was much lighter. We had booked a table for the second sitting, staff where friendly and accommodating. We all enjoyed our meal, lemon and lime prawns, spiced chicken, chicken...skewers, dumplings, broccolini, all with sauces and very well presented and tasty...even the plum wine!More

Yes it does have desserts. Just three options though. A cheese cake, tiramisu and an ice cream.
