Came here with my daughter to have a snack. A Korean snack. Was not sure I had come to the Korean restaurant? May be we came on a bad day. Service was slow, smokers at a non-smoking area. The waiter was told to ask the...More

Well... finally some food other than curries and fried fish/meat. I really enjoyed my bibimbab, such a step up from the rather dull fare elsewhere in the country. Its quite a nice spot, too.

The food was the most tasteless Asian food I have experienced. Spring rolls might have been frozen, shrimp and squid stir-fry was offered with ketchup, chips - yes this was served with chips - were soaked, rather than fried, in oil. That said, the pool...More
