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.

A very nice and friendly place to have Korean food. Each table has a grill installed into it to ensure everyone can enjoy bulgogi. We have come just after lunch and it was lovely and quiet. The bibimbap was delicious and so were the authentic Korean drinks. I feel that the spice level was toned down for the European taste... More

Very tasty Korean food in generous portions at a very reasonable price. As others have said, don't be put off by the decor outside or in, once your food arrives you'll barely notice the K-pop youtube feed. 😉 Service can be slow so don't go if you're in a hurry, otherwise take the time to enjoy some great food. Spicy... More

This place was a pleasant surprise! Four people for BBQ and it was amazing. The pork options were by far the best. Beef and seafood were good. I would definitely recommend this place for anyone who likes Korean food.

Lovely little gem of a place, the modest interior doesn't do justice to the wonderful authentic food (I went with a friend who's spent some time in Korea - he was impressed) - if you're not sure what to eat ask and the friendly staff will help you pick something. I had the beef bibimbap and it was wonderful.

Don't be put off by the slightly uninspiring interior, once inside and seated, the tv plays Korean music and when we were there last night, lots of Korean families were dining together. It suddenly didn't feel like Bournemouth - and in a good way ! It was a first experience of Korean food for five food-loving people and we chose... More

Great service with really great food. I can say the customer service was top class, along with the music it felt really authentic. The food was amazing and we'll presented. Will be visiting again very soon.

This was our first visit to a Korean restaurant and we were blown away. The food and service were fantastic and it was also very good value. The waitress suggested various things off the menu after asking what type of food we liked. Recommend everybody goes !!
