Not a fancy venue but service is quick. Food cheap and very tasty. Hot pot dishes are super hot temperature wise. Recommend the spic pork plate. We eat there often.

My family and I regularly eat here. It is authentic and well priced. There is a good range of dishes of varying spice levels. I don't think they tone down the spiciness of their dishes as the hot ones are authentically hot. For those of you who don't like very spicy food they also have mild dishes.

I guess we did not understand that Korean food was so different from other Asian foods we have enjoyed. My pork dish was too spicy to eat,and I could not find the pork in it among all of the other mystery ingredients. My husband's seafood was mysterious too. We could not eat our meals, so we left.

This is one of our regular haunts in Cairns. We really enjoy the meals produced at Corea Corea, particularly the sizzling dishes and the Bimbimbap.
