The staff was very friendly and did their best to accommodate us despite the place being overcrowded. We ordered two hot pots for four people because someone in the group had allergies to shell fish. Then we proceeded to order meat and vegetable options for each hot pot (4x meat, 1x king prawns, 2x noodles, 2x mushrooms etc). We even... More

The Korean stew we had was pretty good. The rice served with the stew was Chinese boiled rice instead of the sticky rice traditionally served with Korean meals. Also there was not side dishes (kimchi) with the stew, which I found odd.. The menu is in English, Korean and Chinese. The service was good and the portions were generous.

Booked a kareoke night here. I liked it because you get your own private room and you can eat and play kareoke in this private room. If you needed assistance, you rang the bell and someone was with you pronto. It was very laid back. Food was nice, but found it strange that they never cleared the table after our... More

I was there with colleagues from work and I was surprised by the great Asian food you can try there. I did not expect that quality and when the place is not the most luxury, it is not expensive and they treat you well. They have karaoke areas and private rooms available for bookings and it is perfect for couples,... More

We take the kids in here on at least one Sunday a month and it never disappoints. The staff are lovely and always dote on our kids. We kind of order the same thing and it's always demolished and always good. Their pork dumplings are amazing, hand made, not frozen. Sizzling squid with cumin seeds and chilli is to due... More

A friend brought me here to explore the Korean cuisine, and it was absolutely a revelation. I had some dumpling to start and as a main I got the pork and squid with rice. Everything was really tasty and relatively cheap for the massive amount of food you got. The staff made sure you were constantly looked after. I would... More

Romantic trip on Sat night from Glasgow so booked here specifically. I had a friend book for us who stays in Dublin but never took our names when we walked in. Sat by the door. Big mistake. We ordered 1 starter and 2 main courses with fried rice and asked for them to be delivered at the same time. Food... More

Food quality is just .. not bad. Staffs are not the most friendly staff but not bad. Location is not bad. However, they do not have a single thing that impressed me. I have visited there like 5 times but sometimes the staffs were horrible.
