This is essentially Korean fast food. It tastes ok, on a single visit, and people are lining up before the restaurant opens. So locals like it.... However, it's in the food court of a mall (and not particularly upscale shopping). The ambiance leaves a lot to be desired, as a result. For instance, a large fan blows across the sit-down... More

Cheap, cheerful and pretty authentic (speaking as a roundeye only just finding out about Korean food). Bibimbap and kimchee soup both super yum! In Orchid Arcade, along with good Viet pho tai and Japanese. Eat yourself silly after going to Rusty's food market on Sundays. Great fun for grey nomads. Love the north of queensland in winter.

We used to go to Corea Corea randomly, but found that all the dishes seemed to use the same spice. They are also overpriced for what you get, especially when you compare it to another establishment on Lake St. Their pajeon korean pancake is also over priced and bland. Wevhave stopped going now that we have found a place with... More

My husband and I went to Corea Corea on the last night of our recent North Queensland trip. We had stayed in the Port Douglas area and spent some big dollars on dinners. However the $14.95 spicy pork pot that I ordered here was the best meal of the trip! I'll definitely be back when I'm next in Cairns!

I love the full flavoured meals, that are great value for money & usually arrive within 5 minutes of your order, served by smiling staff. Very hard to get a seat here, as all the locals feel the same way I do. None of the restaurants surrounding it get this kind of patronage, which is the sure sign of a... More

We went to Corea Corea and had a great meal! We ordered the bibimbap and other dishes served in the dulsot (a bowl that sizzles and crisps up food). This is a wonderful eatery everyone should visit whether they crave spicy korean food or korean BBQ flavoured meats.

We really like Korean food and thought we'd give this place a try after reading some of the reviews. The place itself is nothing fancy but the food.....absolutely delicious!!! The bibimbab is spot on as was the beef hotpot. The place was flat out but we were in and out in 45 mins. Will definitely be back next time we're... More
