Fantastic Korean food at a good price! Fast and good service too. Don't be fooled by the 'gallery shop' look, this is a hidden treasure!

After not have lunch there for over 6 months. I ordered the spicy octopuss with a water for 14.95. It was sizzeling hot and big as usual. I always put it in the middle of the table otherwise you will get sauce splatter on your shirt. Fantastic as many times before. Only this time it took about double the time... More

Although in orchid plaza shopping centre food court this is a must go in Cairns. Generous portions, quick fast excellent service - authentic Korean food. Unlimited kimchi provided. Taste of Korea from a shopping centre. Always very busy but quick turnover of tables

We knew we can't go wrong with so many high rated reviews. Craving for some cheap Asian food, we decided to try it. Wow the portions are huge! We were awed by the amount of rice that was inside the pot; very generous for such cheap price (15~18AUD). There's self-served kimchi as well as some miso soup with the rice... More

Dropped in to this place because of the high TripAdvisor rating and I was not disappointed! I asked for the most popular dish and got given number 10 bbq beef. I got it takeaway and took it back to my hotel. It was so yum and a good sized meal. Excellent value.

I come here regularly for lunch and usually get the spicy pork. The biggest lunch for the price. I love the self serve kimchi and always add it to my meal. Olny gripe is my wife is allergic to seafood and was told all their dishes had oyster sauce and did not seem interested in preparing something without it.
