Went here with my family. We ordered a range of entrees and BbQs cooked on the table. The service was very good and the food served fresh, the flavours in the food was tasty. I would definetly bring my family back for another meal.

Delicous, traditional Korean food. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting try something different in Newcastle. Waiter was lovely and service was quick and friendly. The prawn barbecue was beautifully flavoured, the dumplings handmade and the mung bean pancake is a must!
