I went to this place for lunch, this is the WORST Korean ( I don't think you can even say this is Korean food ever. The Korean pancake and Bibinba could be only describe as passable. The korean pancake didn't come with any sauce which is unbelievable + the Bibinba was too dry and the rice was overcooked. The worse... More

I tried the bibimbap, but I gotta say it was too dry for my liking (though i am not a Korean dish expert). Portion was of a good size. Location was easy to find. Not too mention it was close to a good bakery on the same street (should give it a try). Service was a bit slow (even though... More

This is a small, busy restaurant. Neither my friend or I had tried Koran food before. When we chose our dishes, the waitress very sweetly pointed out that she thought we had ordered too much food (she was right!), so we changed our order. This action alone endeared us to her as she had our interests at heart. The manageress... More

The female korean manager of the restaurant has a very bad attitude and was very rude. Will never go back!!!

Arrived at about 9pm and were happy the kitchen was still open. My boyfriend and I had never tried korean food before and we sure weren't disappointed! We ordered a seaweed roll as a starter, I had the soup with vegi dumplings and the boyfriend had the beef bibimbab. The mains come with a side of kimchi. It was all... More

I've been to Berlin twice, and on both trips I visited Yam Yam. I started with the the seafood chigimi (korean pancake) starter which was fantastic and followed with Bi Bim Bap. It was definitely the best that I've had in Europe, but as I was raised in Asia, i was pretty disappointed when the dish came with a cooked... More

The dumpling starters were ok but the ramyun were dreadful. I am pretty sure they were made from Shin Cups (Google it if you haven't had one!). I don't mind a Shin Cup because they cost 70p but I don't want to pay 7 Euro for one as I would expect a restaurant not to use powdered ingredients. It was... More
