Great BBQ, with a line out the door by 7.30pm. Mostly Korean crowd, and they obviously feel at-home. We felt like we were back in Seoul.

We think ordering bbq dishes individually seems to be the cheaper/better option - the platters have restricted choices. The quality of the meat is higher than Dae Jang Kum, with greater portions too.

We love this place, it's like stepping into Seoul. We also like the seafood pancake and the large scale draft beers!

Good venue for a group celebration or get together. Good range of dishes which cater for most tastes including a good selection of seafood. Friendly and efficient staff make for an enjoyable experience. The gas BBQ is a lot easier than the heat beads or charcoal and contains the heat which is a good thing is the Sydney summer.

10 of us tried the standard Bulgogi, Japjae, Panjeon, Spicy pork. Everyone liked the food. Nothing really unique. Expected taste from Korean food. Reasonable price. Great selection of Ban Chan. I won't come here for the ambience. Noise level is on the high side. Servers did good job, but we shall not expect smiles/high quality of service. They provide what... More

I had a horrible experience at BBQ City with a group of friends. The service was poor and the food was well below my expectations. - Our waiters were not enthusiastic and unwelcoming. - The waiter who served our table forgot to bring my friend's meal that we waited 15 minutes for, and had to wait another 10 minutes to...

This big, busy, fast paced heavily Asian frequented (always a good sign) Korean BBQ restaurant is located on Liverpool Street between George and Pitt Streets. Service is fast and efficient and advice around menu items/how much to order/what's too hot! was very good. Food is excellent, authentic and there's plenty of it. Classic Korean tastes - chilli/pickled vegetables - are... More

My partner and i ate here on a whim. What a great choice. All the staff were friendly smiling and helpful. The food came out super fast and was fresh and tasty. Highly recommended for a meal if you are on a time limit. Zero complaints here, great night.

After a lovely day exploring the Blue Mountains a warming Korean meal was in order. Found this restaurant on a Google search and headed straight there from Central Station. Traditional Korean BBBQ served quickly and well supported by staff who assisted these non Koreans well. Delightful staff and lovely food. A tad pricey but really tasty.

Thank Joymichelle

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
