On that particular block on Queen Street, there are so many Korean places to eat you will be hard-pressed to choose: Go to where there are locals patronizing and it's a busy place. Il Mee restaurant fits those 2 criteria plus the extras such as honest, quick and inexpensive (NZ standard). The beef, pork or squid plate and the fish-egg... More

We searched for a Korean feed and found a few in this area but this one appealed because we didn't want to cook our own food at our table. We loved every dish, the service was good and we would recommend this to others. I enjoyed the number 1 and 23, BBQ beef and some dumplings YUM

Ate here last night. It's a small, restaurant in typical Korean format (casual service with little attention paid to the decor etc) but the food was yum. We had the Kim chi pork with rice and vegetables which was $27 for two people to share. It was yum and plenty of food for the two of us, even though we... More

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.....
