This Korean Restaurant was certainly a good find. Tucked away at the top (southern) end of Queen Street this place is well worth seeking out. I ordered the Bi Bim Bab for $12 and received an array of seven dishes, all of which were fantastic. For dining on a budget it would be hard to go past here. Highly recommended

Decided to try a Korean meal last night, walked up Queens Street, looked at numerous little restaurants and decided on this one because it had a lot of people eating and the pictures out the front made it look appetising. We were not disappointed, an absolutely great meal with drinks which cost us $45. Meal was spicy and very enjoyable,... More

Maybe we ordered the wrong thing, but the yukaejang broth was bland and not spicy. The mandoo was packaged store bought mandoo. The banchan was just weird. Tbe onky okay thing was the kongnamul. Even the kimchee did not taste right.

Always full with eaters, the speed of service is really fast. Personally recommend pig backbone soup and spicy tofu. The side dishes include a fresh kimchi, which is the best flavor for this restaurant. However, the cleaness of toilet and kitchen is a serious problem.....

Located in Upper Queen St alongside many other Asian eating places but this one was full both times we went there. Generous servings with free Kimchi. Pork Backbone soup seemed to be the most popular dish - although we weren't quite up to ordering it!
