This restaurant/bar (the owners basically bought a rough old bar and split it in two - I prefer the bar part, they serve the same meals there) is a long standing part of the rough and ready Parnell Street scene. I'm not qualified to judge how good the food is by Korean standards, but I've been told by Koreans that... More

This restaurant nearly shares the physical space with a pub, which seem to be owned by the same people, so the noise can be quite loud. Food and service are so so.

We went to Kimchi for lunch. I ate tofu bibimbap (vegetarian) and banohan and there was a plenty to eat in it. Everything was yummy and it cost only about 10€ altogether. The staff was very friendly too. Very nice place to go and good options for vegetarians! :)

Decent food in quiet surroundings (been there mostly for lunch). Sometimes the service is a little slow, but that's ok. Good place for a beer too in the evening if you're after somewhere a bit different.

I love this place. Staff lovely. Customers mainly Asian which is a good sign. The Vegetarian Bento Box was delicious. And it's really good value. Mains between €9 and €15.

This restaurant is a `must` for people who like Japanese and Korean cuisine. The food is really really good,the portions are big and the prices are very reasonable. The stuff is very friendly,the restaurant has a relaxed atmosphere where you can go and have a nice meal even with an active toddler like ours:)

I really like this place, I went last time just a couple of days ago with a friend, The food is delicious, my favorites are the sushi and the bulgogi but everything is good. We also had some very nice plum wine. I like the fact that they have an area that is properly restaurant and another which is pub,... More

A nice restaurant serving authentic Korean food. The food for the most part was excellent however the pancake starter was very greasy but that was the only negative. The ginger tea was a nice way to end. We will be going back and the best part was the bill .....

Came here for lunch after reading the positive TA reviews. I was not disappointed: Very nice food at a reasonable price. The service was good, and I would definitely come back. I had the Bento Box with Salmon, definitely would recommend it!
