One of my favourite restaurants in Cape Town when I am entertaining friends. Galbi is a social experience. In Korean BBQ style you cook your food on the grill in the middle of the table and socialise at the same time. It's a lot of...More

The service was really great. The waiters were super friendly and helpful. I loved that they had a button to call the waiters. The food was also really good.

If you haven’t been to Galbi you haven’t experienced Cape Town. This Korean BBQ has a unique South African flavor and top quality for a very reasonable price. I’ve been back a couple of times and always know the food will be tops!

An amazing, fun-filled experience we will never forget! Extensive menu with both Korean and South African favourites. Every table has its own braai/barbeque. Start off with grilling oepsies, braaibroodjies, skilpadjies, filled mushrooms, to name but a few. Then choose your meats, some of which are...More
