Tasty raw beef and side dishes

I come almost solely for the raw beef and yummy side dishes. You get six side dishes per table, including e.g. the classic kimchi, dried fish, salted spinach and a transparent rice cake like block with spicy bean paste. Order the raw beef - a HKD195 option is plenty for two persons. The vegetables... read more

They keep sending me these $100 coupons peridically, so sometimes I give in and use them. Don't go for the sets. They are good value, but the meat is of a lesser quality. My staple is the galbi, 2 orders and the beef soup noodles. Both cooked by the waitress. When it gets very busy, the waitress may go missing,... More

I lived 17 years in Hong Kong before moving abroad, and this used to be a favourite for me and my family. Being Korean ourselves, we thought the food was always authentic, delicious and a grade above the other hundreds of Korean restaurants in HK. So while we were back in town this March, we decided to visit Sorabol again.... More

Sorabol in Kowloon, Hong Kong, has been my favorite Korean restaurant for more than 10 years. This one is different to and much better than the Sorabol in Beijing. It is quite popular - advance reservation is essential. Its set menu for 4 offers the best menu. I like particularly its raw beef, BBQ rib and beef, seafood pancake, and... More

On the 4th floor of a shopping mall right on Nathan road, very easy accessible by MTR, this true Korean barbecue and HotPot place was indeed a good choice. 6 courses meal, with prawns, scallops and three types of meat ( take both the marinated and the non marinated beef and pork, hey are really something ), all " watered...

Loved this place. The food was authentic - the kimchee was just like you get in Korea :-) We enjoyed the Kimbaps and Chighe - didn't get to try the Bulgogi though. Next time :-)

We came across this restaurant by chance after walking along Nathan Road. We were tired and with two small children were looking for an easy dining option after landing in Hong Kong at 6am after flying for over 10 hours from Paris. We arrived at 5:30 pm and had to be out by 7:30pm which suited us just fine. We... More

Bibimbap and kimchee pancakes... we just can't get enough of them. The marinated beef short ribs are definitely a family favourite.
