We LOVED this place! We were just walking past and went in and the food and cocktails were so incredibly happy. The prices are good, you can go as cheap or expensive as you want. I highly recommend!

This place was an absolute joy, if you already enjoy a good 'braai', you'll love this restaurant where you can braai your own meat at the table. The food is Korean/African Fusion, the African part being the kinds of meats on offer. Aside from beef...More

Considering I lived in Korea for a while, I was really looking forward to getting some foods I remember from Korea. I must say, this is as identical as you will get. You grill your own meet, but that in itself is an interesting experience,...More

It's like having a mini bbq inside a restaurant. A nice selection of marinated meats on offer, tapas style, with a charcoal grill built in to your table to cook them. A good place to go with friends for casual dining, just off lively Long...More
