“Bad food. Bad service. Staff & boos can't speak blarney English”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013

1. Staffs have really bad attitude and can't speak English at all.
2. Boss hired a really bad supervisor who pushed us into paying for a plate of food that we wanted to cancel order on. Boss is still quite nice enough wanting to pay back but why bother? Tripadvisor is their solution.
3. Smells badly of BBQ smell after walking out. Worst than any BBQ restaurants I have ever been.
4. Pork is not BBQ by your own but by the BBQ pit outside the restaurant.

Overall, stay away from it. They are just lucky that they are the only korean restaurant on this street. When another one comes along, this restaurant will go down the drain.

“Nothing special”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2013 via mobile

Good food, however the barbecue at the front is rather deceiving, only pork goes on the barbecue and unlike most Korean restaurants you don't get your own grill. Good food for value. Nothing special but what they have is good.

“Was there TWICE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

I am now in Siem Reap, in these five days, I went to Dae Bak twice. The food is wonderful and just cost you US$5 ONLY! Include eight small dishes, grilled pork, vegetables salad, lettuce basket, not very spicy but very tasty tofu hot soup.

The most wonderful thing is, if you found you were not enough, say, the main dish, the grilled pork, they could REFILL you. Only one thing they do not refill is drinks.

This restaurant is really a must in your try list when you were in Siem Reap.
