We wanted something different for the last night of our family stay in Sydney (kids 10, 13, 14) so we headed to Madang for our first Korean meal. It is a bit odd to walk up a slightly dingy alley to see lots of people waiting outside but don't be put off and be brave. Ask for a table and... More

Had to wait around 20 minutes. But the food was yummy. The bulgogi,The spicy tofu soup, the kalbi. The waiters bit slow to respond when we call them though.

I tried going here about a month back. Queue was massive, wait in excess of a half hour. So went next door (O Bal Tan) Came back last night for another try, 20min wait .. I put up with it .. apparently it's all "part of the experience" these days. There are some experiences one could do without. Windy seat... More

Our absolute favorite for a casual night out with friends. The food is amazing and the atmosphere is fun. Very different dining experience. You can go crazy & won't pay even close to what you would pay elsewhere.

Only be prepared for a dingy alley entry off Pitt St to be confronted by a queue of hungry diners, mostly Korean students and professionals all seeking authentic korean cuisine. BBQ ribs (galbi) are scrumptious and their soon tofu (ask for egg), chapchae, actually most of their dishes all celebrate Korean yumminess
