I met some friends for Bulgogi. The place is centrally located and very accessible through public transportation. The interior is nice and well-decorated. The staff are also friendly and tolerant, as we were really loud! Well, we were having fun. We had Bulgogi and we really enjoyed it. The marinated beef that was served was good. The side dishes were... More

We went for dinner and had the BBQ Bulgogi which comes with a few little dishes to accompany the meat besides the white rice and kimchi. The marinated meat was nice and you cook it yourself on the stove of your table. We had the menu which included the fried meat dumplings, the bulgogi and one scoop of ice cream.... More

One of the best Korean restaurants in Geneva. Went there with my family and enjoyed Korean BBQ. It was very good.

Went to this restaurant at 2:05pm on a weekday but was turned away because "the kitchen is closed until dinner". On the door it said it closed at 2:30pm but the waiters and cooks were too lazy to get another customer. I will not be coming back to that place again.

This restaurant looks really good inside, and it's clear the owner put a lot of thought and effort into the presentation aspect. That's pretty much the only positive I can think of. The food is terrible - I saw a non- Korean person in the kitchen and wouldn't be surprised if they prepared the food. I had the hot stone... More

Good food. Cool ambiance. Though the manager a bit grumpy all the time but the server are patiently supportive of our needs. I definitely recommend for group or family lunch and dinner dining as they could bbq themselves. Great to combat winter

This is another place I've been numerous times, although its quite expensive, the BBQ sets are very good. You often see Koreans coming here so it can't be a bad place to be! Try also the stone rice dishes.

Probably the best Korean food I have had (never been to Korea but I've been to several Korean restaurants in Asia). They have several veggie options too - the dumplings are AMAZING! The veg bibimbap a must have too. And the kimchi pancake was pretty unique and flavourful too. Highly recommend it

My most recent visit to Gaya was in June of this year and the food was delicious. Was there with friends who have lived in Korea and they said it was quite authentic. Service was fast, efficient and friendly. I had the bimbap (I'm not sure if I'm getting that right but this is the earthenware bowl with rice, meat... More
