So I've frequented this place a lot for the past 3 or so years. My first time there I was so excited. It was all new to me. But an impression stuck with me that day, and it was mainly the staff members. At the time, the only friendly ones were the managers (who I haven't seen ever again). The... More

I have been to this restaurant a lot, they have a fantastic $10 lunch menu which comes with honey boiled potatoes and Kim chi. A personal favourite is the spicy pork set menu.

Been here on numerous occasions and have never been disappointed with the food. Staff can sometimes be a bit snobby but other than that it is a great place and has amazing food.

We have been this Korean BBQ several times and haven't been disappointed. If you get the meat platters, you can have it cooked at your table by the staff, or you can ask to do it yourself. Steak is always nice. Tried the spicy marinated pork this time, and it was great, just remember to drink water :)

We enjoyed the Korean bbq, maybe not an authentic experience nevertheless it's fun cooking at your own table. Food was generally a little bland, the staff were very attentive, wine list very poor.

We have visited Dae Jang Geum Korean BBQ on couple of occasions now. The food is quite tasty and service is very good. I cannot say that it's great value for money but the experience is very different from what you would expect in a restaurant. You get a plate of raw meat and cook it yourself at the table... More

We came here with a party of 8. All of us ordered different meals. I ordered prawns with chilli and it was delicious. The service was efficient. Every one in our group enjoyed their meals. Reasonably priced as well.

We ordered one of the meat combo BBQ plates for dinner and it was delicious. It was more than enough food for two people and the staff were always quick with their service. The staff took care of the food on the BBQ while we got to enjoy a nice chat among ourselves and not have to worry about the... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving up age-old recipes. The lighting may be unromantic, the patrons loud, and the service no-nonsense, but the food is sensational.
