I eat here regularly, and I always see other diners being served delicious looking meals which I promise myself I'll order next time. However, next time I can't resist ordering the Bibimbap again, I'm hooked on it! Quick, healthy, delicious. Complimentary 'help yourself' tea and kimchee. Ambience very Singapore food court.

Corea Cores serves pretty good food. The spicy chicken and the BBQ pork are our favorites. For one dollar you get a bottle of water to your lunch. I wouldn't have dinner here because of location (shopping center).

Outstanding Korean food served sizzling in an extraordinarily hot stone bowl, ensuring the food remains hot throughout the meal. Spicy pork over rice was terrific! The restaurant is upstairs in the Orchid mall, down the street from the Woolworth's supermarket.

Nothing to complain, beautiful traditional Korean food! My husband and I absolutely loved it. Lots of choices on the menu, but once u figure out which one suits you the most, you just couldn't stop having the same meal all the time. Best choice of take away if you feel like some Asian spices.

Love this place for a quick, delicious, reasonably priced feed, always plenty of people eating there so you know its good. There are a variety of food shops up stairs in Orchid Plaza so if someone doesn't want Korean food, there's plenty of choice

It's not terribly atmospheric, upstairs in Orchid Plaza, but it's affordable and the food is excellent. The spicy pork is sizzling hot and just the right amount of spicy heat. Help yourself to the kimchi. Love this place. It's my favourite lunch spot

Asians don't care about the setting or the service as long as the food is good. And the bibimbap and BBQ beef here were very tasty. There is always a queue, which is a good sign in Asian culture. We were served relatively quickly, and there was sufficient seating during the busy dinner hours. The bibimbap had a lot of... More
