As locals we have been coming to Orchid plaza on and off for the last 8 years. We have frequented this place far more often than the other eateries in this walk through arcade. Prices are still reasonable for the quality of the food and the fast service, although the prices have ticked up quicker than I would have expected... More

Lovely food, fansytastic service. Food was yummo and very quick although the place was quite full being the just after lunch rush. Can't wait to go back and try some other dishes. So many to chose from. Yeeha!

Korean food in the daytime, cheap, cheerful and delicious. You may get more than you can eat, but who's complaining. Had the chicken and vegetable hot plate.

We ate here with a friend who is local and highly recommended it. Corea Corea is located in a small shopping mall in central Cairns. I did not expect this level of outstanding tastes in a shopping mall! Wow! The food was amazingly priced and was absolutely delicious. I ate the beef pot and my husband and friend had super... More

I am a fan of Korean food--particularly the BBQ--and went here last night to try the charcoal grilled beef ribs. They were delicious and surprisingly well presented for a food court restaurant. Don't let the food court location deter you. This is as good a Korean restaurant as any I have been to, including those in Korea itself. The food... More

This is such a popular spot and I know why! The 'spicy' dishes are chilli hot but there are plenty of options for bbq (sizzle) style meals too. My favourite dish is definitely the seafood pancake, you must try it to believe it. Similar to a fritter, slightly crispy on the outside and soft in the middle, this generously filled... More

While Corea Corea is off the beaten track for tourists, it's only a short walk from the Esplanade. The restaurant is located in a small shopping centre - but don't let that stop you. The value was excellent. Not only was it the cheapest meal I ate in Cairns, it was also the best. I had the Bibimbap which came... More
