As previous reviews have noted a little tricky to find but worth the efforts. Just look down the lane, the sign at intersection of Pitt and Liverpool say 'Koreatown' so there is a nice little collection here. Unexpectedly busy on a Sunday night we had to wait for a table. When you enter it is with ceremony with the staff welcoming each group of diners in loud voices. There is a good choice oc dishes with most people opting for the BBQ or hotpot . There is a gas ring set in the centre of each table where the hot plate goes and when it heats up away you go. There is plenty of choice of dishes to cook and they are accompanied with sides, albeit a little tricky for a non Korean afficienado to recognise them all. We washed our meal down with with a Korean beer. It was nice without being great and I confess to looking a little enviously at the table beside with their delicious looking seafood hotpot. If I have a criticism, it would be that for the inexperienced it was difficult to know what to order and how much. The staff, whilst bein helpful were not really overly interested in giving too much advice. Don't let this deter you, its worth the effort and its open late as well.

Great place to visit! I've been there a few times and the food was fantastic. The only problem was the waiting time but it was worth.

It is located right down an alley way off Pitt Street " 371A Pitt Street" A Korean BBQ restaurant. The area is full of restaurant nearby. Take note that is located behind a shop lot is not facing in front of the street! The food was average but great value for money!

Not easy to find it at 371 Pitt Street with Liverpool Street being cross street, down an alleyway (it’s safe) but find it and you will not be disappointed, unless you’re not a fan of Korean food, as I am. In term of authentic food, outside Korea this is one of the best I have been to- flavours great, and hit the historical sense right on the pallet. Atmosphere busy, professional, yet relaxed, with an atmosphere for the whole family, and kids of all ages. Menu choice cover the lot from mild to spicy to suite all pallets looking for traditional Korean food. Good selection of Soju and other drinks, BYO at $4:00 is a dynamite deal. Cost is mid to upper but value is excellent. You cannot book so be prepared to wait but they have up-stairs and down and 11-20 minutes would be average on a busy night (and most are any time of the week). Go and enjoy you will not be disappointed.

You might walk straight past Sydney Madang without even realising it but you'd be missing out if you did! It's just down a little alleyway off Pitt Street so make sure you look out for the sign if you're looking for it.

The restaurant itself is a good size with lots of different Korean dishes on offer. I had the Bibimbap, which was huge and amazing. Really fresh and tasty. We also had bulgogi which was very delicious as well. You also get lots of side dishes for free including kimchi and pickles. We were looking to order this on the menu so were pleased to get these dishes for free.

The service is also extremely efficient with a table top doorbell system. You just press the bell when you want service and a server comes over to you within seconds. Brilliant system and one other restaurants should think about offering!

Definitely would recommend this Korean restaurant if you're looking for a good hearty meal in central.
