First time with Korean food. Lovely little restaurant, Food was flavoursome and fresh. My wife and I had entrees of the kimchi pancake and fried dumplings, our mains were sizzling chicken and sizzling seafood, accompanied by complimentary 2 rice and 2 cans of cordial.Lunch prices were very reasonable. Will be back for sure.

First time eating Korean and first time visiting this great little restaurant. The service was excellent and very friendly. But the food - oh my - the food was incredible!!! First came out a little salad which exceeded my expectations of what a side salad should be. Followed by a couple of different entrees to share - highly recommend the kimchi pancake and the fried dumplings. For main I had the bi-bim-bap and all I can say is WOW!!! 10 out of 10 for food :)

I first ate at this restaurant about 7 years ago and periodically return. The food is always very good - fresh, tasty and a little different from most of the Asian restaurants around Newcastle. Last week was no exception. The BBQ chicken was particularly good.
Although it is small, it has an up-market feel about it. The prices are a little more than you might expect from an Asian restaurant, but not excessive. The service is very good.
Well worth trying.
