“Lovely food, excellent service”
Reviewed July 14, 2012

We booked at short notice on a Saturday evening. The restaurant has pleasant decor and is very clean. Service was attentive and efficient. We have sampled many Chinese restaurants in Manchester, but not tried this Korean restaurant before. On the basis of this meal we would rate this as more interesting and better than many of the Chinese ones. We opted for the Korean Special menu, which had some choice, but contained a number of non-optional dishes. They were all well flavoured and spiced, with nicely contrasting flavours and textures. Overall our meal was very good value for money. Highly recommended.

“A little bland”
Reviewed June 5, 2012

Thought it was a little bland, never had Korean before so maybe ordered wrong thing. Had a set menu, thought starters and soup quite tasteless and beef dish dry. Again probably lack of knowledge. Hite lager was lovely

“interesting”
Reviewed June 1, 2012

one of those places that has never really caught on in Manchester although the food is good and interesting. Slightly lacking in atmosphere and more poorly attended than it deserves.

“Nice, cosy and good price”
Reviewed May 8, 2012

This is the place I go every time I come to Manchester. The food is good, the menu is clasical Korean but the ingredients are fresh. The only disappointment was about the meat and potato cakes which in fact were white potato cakes without anything else.

“Lovely”
Reviewed April 12, 2012

Had a lovely meal here last week, it was simple and unpretentious, the only downside was the price, almost 10 pounds for a small portion of spicy pork with 4 lettuce leaves and a bowl of spicy sauce, luckily I also ordered rice but this was almost 4 pounds more, saying this I wouldn't hesitate in returning as it was delicious.
