The food is just beautiful! We don't have korean bbq anywhere but here! The waiters/tress are a bit hard to understand sometimes and sometimes they can't understand or speak english well which is probably the only downside for us. Also, it's not very kids friendly. Theres a lot of steps to get up to the restaurant and no lifts so... More

Let me start this review by stating that this is the first Korean restaurant I have been to in Australia. My previous experience has been in Seoul! I was expecting a better experience but have to say that the dishes ordered were all quite tasty, and reasonable value for money. Service was very good however, the waiting staff should have...

Since tofu soup (sundubu) is one of my favorites, I had it there many times. They have lunch menu which is affordable, and the taste was good. As usual, a few appetizer came with the meal. I wouldn't mind to eat there again in the future.

Went back here after a long time. Was surprised they don't include that sweet potato included in the appetisers and the size of the dishes have gone down in size. :/

It is very good, we enjoy the BBQ and the soju. We had a good time with my family. We paid 400$ for 12, we had different kind of meat and soupe. The sauce is excellent also

This was our first time at a Korean BBQ and we really enjoyed it. The restaurant was spacious and the staff very willing to assist when we advised them this was our first time. Our food arrived quickly and staff set up the table BBQ plate and kept turning and adding our food. Accompaniments were very tasty as were the... More

Being upstairs, the restaurant is not directly visible and could not gawk in but was pleasantly surprised with a spacious and welcoming venue. Arrived for dinner around 8 but last orders were already being called. Whilst feeling a tad rushed, the service was friendly and the food was good, amidst a flurry of activity by the staff almost desperate to... More

We ordered the Korean BBQ mixed platter consisting of Beef Pork Chicken. ($75) this feed 3 people no problems. Drinks were very reasonable. You can... More

We over ordered in a major way. Excellent quality food in a loud and basic setting. Quite a sweet approach to marinade and the combination grill was great value.

Serving are little with only 3 side dishes provided. Service is poor, we asked for side dishes to be replenished, staff just took away our plates without returning.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
