The flavor was amazing. First time in a Korean BBQ, and the staff was so helpful in showing us how to cook the meats and making sure that everything was going right. I liked the idea of the self cooking. The meal was sufficient, yet...More

Great service. Friendly and very helpful staff made some great menu suggestions for first timers. The three mains we chose were good but nowhere near enough. We ended up ordering five and still had room for more. We were worried/off put by the thought of...More

Serves good Korean style BBQ with good cuts of pork and beef. Not much else is served here but some soup and Korean sides. Good for Korean BBQ lovers.

Overall was good. Marinated beef was a bit chewy. Kimchi pancake was nice. Soup was tasty. Don't totally rely on the servers though usually they take responsibility for the cooking and stop in now and then to turn over the meat so it’s cooked evenly...More

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
