The restaurant doesnt look like much from the outside but theres a reason it's always packed! The food is absolutely delicious, full of flavour and incredibly affordable. I highly recommend the teriyaki fried chicken and spicy beef bulgogi!!

We tried the Cheese Chicken Bulgogi and Tteokbokki. For 2 of us with a huge appetite, we almost could not finish the food! Highly recommended for anyone in Melbourne wanting to try authentic Korean cuisine. Take note that EFTPOS is not accepted.

A little Korean restaurant serving good value meals. You order and pay at the counter, the food is served to your table when ready. Large portions, very spicy but delicious. The restaurant was packed. We were the only non-Koreans eating there, so obviously a favourite...More

Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
