Not good

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. Those dishes are, of course personal taste, but I am assured by other members of our party, that their choices also, were very tasty. Generously, Corea Corea has a complimentary supply of drinking water (not... More

I had a quick lunch at Corea Corea on a trip to Cairns in December. I ordered the beef ribs which were really excellent. It was a big serve and very tasty. You can help yourself to as much kimchi as you like. I was surprised to find a Korean cafe of this standard in Cairns.

If you after a quick, very tasty, value for money lunch or dinner this is the place. Don't expect big atmosphere but who cares when you are in for a quick bite? I still ordering myself through their menu. Start by 1 now nearly though never had been disappointed. My favourite spicy Octopus pot always put a spanner in my... More

We had the Bibmbop and BBQ chicken bowl. They cost approximately $15each. Was very quick and tasty. Definitely recommend you go. A little tricky to find as it is in plaza, upstairs, with little signage. (Just down from woolworths)

It was our first time having korean food but we were not disappointed! The restaurant is situated in smaller shopping centre so our first impression was "oh, this would be some korean fast food". Food was cooked fast indeed, but was extremely tasty, a bit spicy but bearable. There is also free water, tea and kimchi available for guests. Very... More

I had never tried Korean food before going here on a friend's recommendation and was pleasantly surprised. The rice bowls are hot and plentiful and come out quickly, there's complimentary sides and tea offered and if you can't finish your meal (which is every time for me!) they'll give you a take away container for the rest
