Best steak in Cape Town

I know..how can a Korean restaurant serve the best steak in Cape Town? Well, the do! Book at least a day before you want to visit, this place is very popular. Great outing for friends or family. Besides their steak, the jalapeno poppers and sweet potato chips are mouth watering. Eat your heart out... read more

I was absolutely shocked when I saw this only has 4 starts on tripadvisor?! I thought this would definitely have 5! This place is incredible! We went out to dinner here on our last night in Cape Town. We had the safari set, which included kudu, ostrich, zebra, and warthog. It came with a ton of sides and everything was... More

It was a great surprise when we found Galbi Restaurant in the middle of a small mall at the Longstreet. They have many types of meat, and we can prepare your meat at the table in a small barbecue. The sides are also great! And we have an amazing white chocolate quesadilla for desert! We had to come back there... More

It is a nice concept! It is something different for Cape Town. But the food and the service was extremely slow! Went in a big group! Don't really think we will return! Maybe we will! But would rather try other place before going back for a second time.

Me and my wife chose to go do something different and we were absolutely amazed by this restaurant. From the food to the drinks to the service, everything was amazing... I love the great atmosphere it creates when sitting around the grill whilst cooking your meat. Very unique and a priceless experience.

Service grumpy and poor. Save yourself 10 per cent table service by staying at home, getting a lump of pork from pick and pay and cooking it yourself in a disposable braii.

I've been going to Galbi since 2012, and I've always enjoyed the food and the vibe. Service can be a little slow, but generally it's fine. Tonight was a different story... Our waiter was a disaster!! He seemed disinterested in our table, and then rather annoyed when we asked for extra utensils,napkins, side dishes etc. He also forgot several items,... More

Went there on Friday night with friends- very interesting dining experience and would definitely recommend people to go! If you are into different foods, tastes and experiences - this is definitely a restaurant to try out. We just ordered a variety of different foods, drank wine and Korean spirits and just had a good time cooking, eating and drinking!

There is great choice with other resturants locally - did not rate this place - then to top it the waiter asked for tip ( my tip is don't ask and up your gain )

I have been here twice now (since living in Korea for a year) and think the Korean menu is really great. I wouldn't try the fusion, but that's because I'm there to rekindle my love affair with Samgyupsal. Although the makeolli was priced at R80 which was a hard one to handle, I suppose as its imported and doesn't keep... More
