This little Korean place really stuck on me when I first saw it, I was searching for a Korean place for ages when I first moved to Brighton, so there it was. I tried it many times, and it was always really fresh and of good quality, without breaking the bank. Normally I would spend there around 8-10£ but I... More

I did enjoy my Bibimbap from here, but as I've never had it before I don't know what it's supposed to be like! I was disappointed that the chicken was advertised as spicy and had absolutely no kick to it at all, there was a nice flavour, but no spice. The whole thing was kind of luke warm and I... More

Need I say more? I guess I have to for the word count. Went there to try something different but was really disappointed. Didn't know what to expect but had hoped for something hot, tasty and filling. But what I got for £6.20 was Some salad with cold rice and cold mushrooms on top. Even though they were speciality mushrooms,... More

My food was OK, nothing special, but my daughter's was terrible - wrong rice, cold, generally not as described. When she complained they refused to change it. Poor service. Would not recommend

I love Korean food, and it's rare to find authentic Korean food out and about but this place ticks all the boxes. Perfect flavour and at a good value. The portions are generous too!

Not bad for bibimbap. Quite a lot of choices and variety. Love the dishes and would go again. Small dissapointments was I had a clump of rice that were rock hard and it did taste like a day or 2 old rice.

Ordered a beef bibimap when it turned up it was luke warm and was basically flavourless. They also gave me white rice rather than brown. When I complained they basically just told me I was wrong refused to give me something else or return my money. Manager and staff incredibly rude, avoid at all costs.

Korean food is new to me but with the help of the willing staff I had an excellent meal. A choice of four types of rice allowed me to pick my favourite brown rice. I chose spicy chicken and the staff put a selection of vegetables to go with it. Four different sauces were available to complement the meal. Free... More
