Had the spicy pork which was amazing. Really tasty and spicy (but not too hot). The place is in a small shopping/eating mall so you might miss it but worth looking for.

I love the food here, it is a bit expensive though compared to other Korean restaurant, and the noise from the Mall may disturb you. If the prices are softer, I could have eaten here everyweek.

This restaurant is in the foodcourt of Orchid Plaza. It was pretty busy during dinner time when we were there. The food was ok but nothing special. The kimchi and drinking water are self service.

Fast service a a variety of well balanced Korean meals. I would recommend spicy octopus pot and seafood pot. Competitively priced too.

We had never had Korean food before and after seeing reviews on trip advisor we thought we would try it... Glad we did! Don't be put off by the in shopping centre location, food is so nice and you can byo! On top of the great value meals (and big portion sizes!) the byo makes corea corea a budget friendly... More

Ordered the beef bibimbap (pictured) and was pleasantly surprised to have it brought to our table within 5 minutes. I also loved the poster for their cage free eggs! Free kimchi, too. My work colleague had never had bibimbap but he was happy we came.

It's a simple joint in the top floor of a shopping mall, but the food is nevertheless amazing. Good selection, great taste - and serving it in a hot metal plate means your food gets warmer, not colder, as you eat it.

Amazing food! Love that it stays hot because of the hot plate, I had the spicy chicken pot. The flavours were amazing and i cant stop recommending it!
