My wife and I visited here twice during our stay in Sydney. On both occasions we ordered the special menu and loved it! Plenty of meat, sauces and salad to accompany a great dish.

The idea is that you sit around a smokey BBQ and cook your own food and drink your own beer. Not a good idea for a first date but a unique restaurant and a good night out with a bunch of open minded friends. nb: you will smell like smoke when you emerge after your feed.

I have eaten at SSAM Korean BBQ several times and am never disappointed. The atmosphere is relaxed and the food delicious. You sit around a round, stainless steel table that in the middle has a pit for red hot coals and a grill. The food is bought to the table raw and is cooked on he grill. The staff help... More
