Very clean restaurant with great service. The meat is incredible. I love the concept of serving frozen meat as you know its fresh.

We had the set meat menu, all of it was great, the condimets, sauces, chilli and garlic, this was a great meal grilling yourself. Asahi beers and good service, nice atmosphere and good booths while grilling.

We happened by this place and were glad we did. I’d been put off Korean BBQ many years ago in Phuket, but this was very light and delicious. Would recommend

Positive: - great food - nice interior design - very central Negative: - Service: the staff was super unfriendly, very judgy because we didn’t know how the Japanese bbq works - too expensive for the service you get

Loved the food here and the experience of watching 4 kids’ fascination in cooking their own food. Ingredients were excellent with friendly service and family oriented space. It’s been a while since I’ve eaten Korean food so this was a real treat.

We loved the experience and I personally like the char coil bbq a lot. It gives that extra flavour to the meat. Don't wear your newest clothes. Friendly staff and good quality meat. Watch out for the promotions.

This restaurant came as a pleasant surprise. It's centrally located, smack in the middle of Phuket Town (at the walking street market area). The staff is friendly but don't speak English too well (I went with Thai friends so it wasn't a problem). The atmosphere...More
