Good food, good price

We keep returning to Corea Corea after having less than impressive meals elsewhere for a higher price. You always know what you are going to get and for three people we pay less than $50. We always take our own drinks. The service is always very fast and pleasant. Love the help yourself Kimchi.

Very popular Korean food bar at Orchid Plaza in Cairns. Very reasonable price buyers the dish is real Korean - of course much milder taste than in Korea though.

Great little find in the heart of Cairns. The food is cheap & extremely fast to come out. To top it off the food is very tasty. Authentic Korean cuisine!

Had many dishes here, never disappointed! My favorite is the spicy octopus bowl and spicy cold noodles! This place always full. Authentic Korean food!

Don't be put off by the "shopping centre food court" look of the place, the Bim Bim Baps are of excellent quality! Service is "ok".

Our family has been here several times over the past ten years and this restaurant maintains it's great reputation. It's tucked up on the second level eatery of Orchid Plaza out of sight from the street. The dish comes out in a sizzling hot pot and keeps hot til the very end.

The restaurant appeared to be popular. We had to wait for a table even on a weekday. The choice of food was limited and of average quality. Not a good choice if you want quality Korean food.

Ate here 2 of the 4 nights in Cairns. It was really good! Upstairs in the food court area of a small shopping center. Altogether my group had the Seafood Hot Pot, Spicy Pork, Miso Soup and Spicy Beef Soup. We loved it all. Free kimchi when you eat there!
