“Very ordinary”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

I might be bias since I am a Korean. But I found their dishes lack flavour and high in MSG. Maybe it was mistake to have Octopus Hotpot which lacked Octopus and too much taste of MSG from broth. Next table had BBQ on table which seem to be better choice. Overall it was ordinary food but cheap eat for our family. Service was friendly and cheerful.

“Tasty and inexpensive.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

Located in "Chinatown", Canberra , we walked in a got a table by the window. We went to the wine shop over the road for a local drop. The cost for the 4 of us was $70.Great food, good service and not expensive. Can't ask for much more than that.

“Holds it own”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2012

In this strip of resturants you are spoilt for choice for Asian fare, this place holds its own.
Good quality, quick service.
We tired a sample of dumplings $7 for 4 (the only thing i would say is a bit high in price).
A beef sizzle plate - YUM. and a Katsu (pork) which was excellent. The corkage was $2 a person, great incentive to take your own bottle.
The only issue - if peole are bbqing around you, your clothes smell when you leave!!!!

“Good Korean food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2011

We have been invited by friends to this Korean restaurant twice in a week. That's usually a good sign to start with.

It's a small restaurant thus booking is recommended on Friday and Saturday nights. Good babimba, good seafood pancake and for a cold winter like this year, a hot pot dish warms the heart.

Service is good and price is reasonable (for Canberra standard)

“Great food, great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2011

Authentic Korean food, the waitresses were very friendly and catered for all our needs. It is a little restaurant but the serves of food were huge compared with Melbourne standards.
I would love to go back again, made a huge impression.
