I have been at this place for at least 15-20 times and tried multiple dishes. The food is good and I cannot remember being disappointed although I wish they could also serve some hot tea ( currently it’s just water) like some other Korean restaurants....In recent months, I generally eat one dish “spicy beef soup” as it’s spicy and flavorful. I liked other dishes too but this one is my favorite. The portions are reasonable ( although I wish it was slightly bigger) as I have seen they could be bigger at some Korean restaurants. Prices are reasonable and staff are generally friendly and helpful.More

It’s my first time and will be my last time! I ordered and willing to pay for noodles in addition to two set meals which come with rice. The noodles are on menu and staff confirmed that it’s not yet finished or out of order,...however both staff and owner refused to sell and serve, insisted me to take rice as part of standard package without giving me a reason, only quoting that the chef said cannot. The staff showed unhappiness on her face when I asked why. I drove a return trip of 1.5hours to this restaurant and I believe I deserved at least an answer! The food does not taste good and very expensive considering the small portion and poor taste. There was also machine problem not accepting both credit and debit cards and I had to pay in cash unexpectedly. I have been to numerous Korean restaurants and I can’t describe by words how disappointed I was at this restaurant!More

To sum up: terrible service. I went there with a friend and ordered food. While we were eating and having our conversation, the waitress came over 3 times to rush us. First time, she took over the bill to our table, second time, she came...over and tried to take our plates while we still had plenty of food left and unfinished our lunch. Third time, she came over and blatantly telling us to quickly finish our food and move on because we have been in the place for over an hour and that is too long. My friend and I were in complete shock by how the waitress treated the customers and how rude and disrespectful she was! Worst dining experience ever and never go back or recommend it to anyone!!!More

Having read some reviews online, o wasn't expecting much in terms of service. Turned out it wasn't too bad, service was quick and prompt. Only thing was being rushed to leave by having the bill slapped on our table when there were plenty of seats...left. Food-wise, I find the key ingredients lacking in most dishes. For example, there was only a few pieces of chicken in the cheesy fried chicken. A minuscule amount of beef in another dish. I guess it's cheap and so nothing we could whinge about. Overall, a good choice for a quick cheap eat in Box Hill and don't expect anything more.More

Two trips, both good. Nice seafood pancake although less seafood on the second visit. Good Takayuki and chicken teriyaki. Big serves, although a little more expensive than some other Box Hill restaurants.

Customer service was terrible, staff were very rude. Prices are not cheap as well. Won't return. So many other Korean restaurants in Box Hill with much better food and better customer service.

This is one of our favs in the Box Hill area for a while now. Great food and service, this place is always tasty and delicious. Go for the tofu entree, we find that a great starter and anything we order for mains and share...on the menu we have tried is always good. Plenty of diners are always there at the busy times.which is the sign of a good business. Note it fills quickly as it is not that large. Will be back again and again!More

Lunch is always pleasant here, the Beef Bento Box, for around $12 comes complete with just about everything. If you don't like Beef, then there's Chicken, Pork to choose from. The only downside is the smalle size of the restaurant, you can't have more than...6, then you need to turn up early as the place is always popular everyday. The other is the smokes coming from the kitchen, nice smells, just you need to wash/dry clean your clothes and have a shower after.More
