I was invited to try Korean food by a very old friend and met him and his 2 lovely half Korean young daughters. John offered to order the food and so we started with kimchi and then had the grill where a waitress helps cook the food. We had 2 different cuts of pork and some beef. These meats are... More

Fast service Friendly staff Great ambience Food was fantastic. Id recommend trying the spicy chicken bulgogi if your exposure to korean food is new. Youll find the food was worth trying. However this place is always full so come early if you want a table.

this is a nice little resteraunt in a good location. The food is not bad, but i have to say there are better korean resteraunts in Bournemouth. Whilst i found the food was quite good, albeit overloaded with sugar somewhat, which is shame as it didnt really need it, the service felt like chaos/rushed, or this how the watiress came... More

We've searched many a place to find good, authentic, delicious Korean BBQ and finally found the one. The beef bulgogi, and vege pancake were especially great, and their sides were also excellent quality. Everything is very reasonably priced. Definitely will return when we're in the area again!

Very much enjoyed our trip to Korean Grill for a light Sunday lunch where we sampled delicious courses such as Spicy Octopus with noodles and Soya bean soup. Service was efficient and friendly. Agree with some of the other reviewers regarding the tired decor but don't let it put you off a great meal. Only slightly disappointed at the end... More

I've always wanted to experience the traditional korean method of grilled meat. And through research, I finally found this fantastic place, which went beyond expectation. The atmosphere reminds me of traditional korean culture. And along with the kpop music playing in the background, I almost forgot I was in England!!! It was my first time trying grilled meat, so I...

Very good service, friendly and fast. Food is outstanding! Big portions small prices. Made my bf fall in love with Korean food and he's not an Asian food fan. Basic interior, but worked out for our romantic dinner and is clean. Will be back when in town!

Never had korean food before - all i can say is try it! Choose your meats, your sides, your extras and your rice and rest is history. Meat is cooked in front of you. Limited on selection of drinks - but the red wine was good. and my colleagues had beer - which they said was OK. Fully recommend! Definitely... More

Ok service , the lady was nice. However, we waited an hour an a half for the food.... The taste is not that good as well . If you are looking for korean food , you better go to KORI restaurant, it's just near to Asda

I don't know you really visit our restaurant or not but I can see this review is fake. I can see your review history that you never been KORI when you visit our restaurant. I already reported to the Tripadvisor. I don't know there will remove or not but I know nobody believe this kind fake review. More

Haven't recently moved to Dorset I've missed the variety and quality of my favourite international foods. Finding Korean Grill is a massive win. We ate so much bulgogi BBQ, pickles, and best of all KIMCHI RICE! Great value, super friendly staff, great fun cooking on the table grill. All soundtracked to K-Pop. Korean Grill is worth finding.

Thank SGoudie
