Not where you would expect to find a Korean restaurant in Paris, and the best I've found in this price range. So far I have tried several of the soups, the raw beef bibimbap, and two kinds of barbecue. All of these have been good, especially the soups, but there are still quite a few other things on the menu I'd like to try. The lunch menus are great value if you happen to be in the neighborhood. Unfortunately the side dishes are usually pretty basic and the kimchi is not strong enough, but this is true of almost all Korean places in Paris.

The restaurant is decorated like a Korean rain forest. The barbecue grills are sunk into the tables, which reduces the spattering, but there isn't a very strong ventilation system, so your clothes will smell like grilled meat afterwards. Service is very attentive.

The place is full on the weekends, so be sure to reserve!

We found this place not far from our Hotel, the reviews were good so why not?
The greeting was cordial enough and a table was found straight away.
The table was a little too high for the chairs, this made the position a little uncomfortable.
The menu contained text and photos to explain the offerings and we chose the BBQ, lots of different dishes arrived but the lack of information on how or what to cook led us to discovery by trial and error. However once over these small inconveniences we had to admit that the quality and taste of the various meats was great. The service was good and the price ok for this quality so it is well worth a try.

Having eaten in this restaurant soon after they opened a gorgeous mackerel, full of flavour and (almost too) copious, somewhat disappointed by this evening's version - not only flat (and I mean, pretty much squashed) but burnt in some parts. Drawn to the attention of the waiter (possibly the boss?) only to be told 'it's a Korean mackerel'. Ok, so what I ate here when you opened was what exactly???
My dining companion ordered sea bass, warning from waitress that it would be a little spicy. 'Just a little bit?' we asked, yes came the reply. If a little spicy means gasping for water I guess she was right....
So, altogether a disappointing dining experience and not sure we will venture there again; however, neighbouring tables seemed to be enjoying their dishes and the restaurant was full, so maybe we should just avoid the fish in future. We'll see.

I have been to this place a few times and I have not been disappointed. The service is very friendly, the food (Korean BBQ menu) is delicious. We have tried the beef BBQ and chicken BBQ menus. Each menu comes with several small side dishes, a great variety of vegetables, nuts, salad, etc. I think they change the side dishes up so it's a surprise every time we go.
The last time we went the restaurant was full, so it might be a good idea to make reservations.

We were a group of 9 people. We all took the 20€ menu with corean Barbecue and quickly our table was covered by food: Excellent marinated meat and a bunch of unrecognized vegetables
We cooked our meat by ourselves which was fun, overall, we had a very good time: the place is beautiful and the staff was incredebly nice, and it is not expensive !
