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

I thought I read somewhere here that they have great BBQ; however, upon request, found out that they don't. Therefore, we ordered the BBQ beef ribs & spicy pork.

Corea Corea is located in Orchid Plaza (level 1) and has a great selection of dishes, all for around $15. My personal favourite is the bibimbap (which I can never pronounce correctly) and it comes out in a sizzling hot stone bowl, which is very dramatic. The food is nice and clean, the service is fast and friendly, all in... More

First time in Australia and there are so many Asian restaurants to choose from. Corea Corea was near my hotel, great price for a ton of food, and so delicious. Always busy but always fast service.
