I prefer the Korean menu here to the Chinese. I always have a soup and love them. The kimchi is delicious. Service is prompt and this is also a great place if you are on your own. $14 for a huge bowl of soup with 3 side dishes. I've even brought my Korean friend and she thinks it's great.

The food here is really tasty. And they actually listen and make it according to your preference (spicy & more sauce!). Go to dish here is Chilli Chicken, I've tried the stir fried pork, it's good but not as good as Madang. The Chilli Chicken is large enough for two people to share and be full. The black bean noodles... More

Food is ok but the lady owner is not acceptable anymore. She shows customers with baby very unpleasant face. She asked my aunty once not to bring her baby to her restaurant. Since... More

The food here is very good indeed. It's not exactly Korean ...more of a fusion of Korean and Asian. Anyway we had three dishes and all were extremely tasty. There is one problem and that appears to be the staff. We had one very helpful waitress but another was rather surly I felt. In fact I asked her a question... More

A great mix (fusion) of Chines and Korean flavours. Fantastic staff who go out of their way to guide customers through an extensive and interesting menu. Try their Korean Bar B Q beef - to die for! Is licensed but allows BYO and only $2 a bottle.

I have always walked past this place on numerous occasions but was never tempted to enter. I am not a fan of dark lighting hence why I have never entered. Nevertheless, I went to the place with a friend for lunch. I ordered the Kimchi fried rice wrapped in egg with seafood cream sauce. Surprisingly for the price it was... More

Have dined here for lunch twice in the last 6 weeks. On each occasion, the food, entrees and mains, was just great and were very large portions. And the price was very reasonable ($45-$60 for 2 persons). Highly recommended
