Cook your own choice of food off the menu. Great for parties of 2 to 4. From pork, chicken, big prawns and more.

Excellent food with good price. The chili past is yummy. But the service are quite slow. If you love Korean BBQ, you would love it.

This restaurant tries to be a jack of all trades to attract the widest audience. This restaurant should play ONLY to its strengths - Korean BBQ. The Pizza I ordered was greasy and tasteless. The Chicken Noodle Soup was flavourless. Don't go here for anything...More
