This place is a gem indeed! The servings were hefty and food were freshly prepared with excellent taste! The food were served with less waiting. We loved every bite of bulgogi and spicy seafoods. The staff were friendly and welcoming with ready and sweet smiles....More

Their waitor was grumpy and unfriendly. He was even drinking (wine) behind the bar while he was still working. Not a single word "thank you" to us when we paid and leaving.

Went here on somewhat of a whim on a Wednesday night. No reservation, but no problem. We had a couple hearty Korean dishes, a pork bone stew and spicy seafood stew. They both came out surprisingly fast along with a number of tiny "condiments" -...More

Went for a friends farewell - perfect place for it! Delicious food with plenty of flavour in every meal on the table. Fair warning that by hot it can be Korean spicy rather than Kiwi spicy - they did milder plates for those not heat...More
