Location:
It is on the main drag that has all the Asian restaurants on Saint Anne street. The place is easy to get to with several metro and bus stations near by. There are around three Velib bike stations if you plan on biking there.

Food:
The food is great and even for a Korean, I give good marks. The waiters that work there are mainly Korean and they will help you in finding the right meal that you want. The service is fast and they are all attentive.

Almost everything on the menu is decent to good, but I recommend the Korean pancake, Bulgogi, Bosam, and the Kimchi Jigae.

The prices are reasonable and it will not break the bank. I usually go there about twice a month when I crave Korean food.

Overall, a great place to dine in Paris, if you want to stay away from French food.

During a long weekend in Paris with my family we went to Guibine for dinner on Saturday night, it was busy and we had to queue for about 45 minutes for a table but it was totally worth the wait. The food was fantastic, the ingredients were fresh and satisfying. The service was warm and the atmosphere was fun and friendly.

Totally worth a visit and if you like Korean food you will love this place

That there is frequently a line of people waiting outside the door should tell you everything you need to know. If that doesn't convince you, then consider that usually, more than half the clientele are themselves Korean.

the staff are wonderful, making sure that you get seated as rapidly as they can manage, always keeping you up to date on how long it will be to get a table. And I promise, it is worth the wait.

The starters are all good, but I especially recommend the Ravioli a Porc - lightly wok fried, with mixed vegetables and pork, served with list soy.

But where they excel is with the Korean Barbecue. Cooked at your table with a range of excellent pickles and vegetables, the team here are happy to adjust the spice to your preference. They will barbecue beef, chicken, duck - the range is fantastic, and while duck is my absolute favourite, you cannot fall to eat well with any flavour. It's a perfect meal for couples, cooked by the team at your table.

And speaking of the team, the place is staffed by an industrious team of Korean kids, who speak a range of Korean, French, English and some other European languages. So even if you don't feel up to tackling the menu in French, help is at hand.

I can honestly say that I have seldom enjoyed such an execellent combination of good food, a surprisingly well chosen cellar suited to Korean food, and good service. It's well worth a detour if you feel like sampling France's Asiatic history.

Ordered a BBQ beef menu with salad, fried dumplings, fried chicken wings and they were all delicious. They cook the BBQ individually at the table even for lunch menu which is nice. It is very popular and by 13h the restaurant was full. My friend's bibimba looked very appetising, too. Tea was included in the menu.

Excellent Korean restaurant, excellent traditional food, attentive service. We felt like in a SEOUL restaurant.
