“Yum. Quasi fat food but excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2014 via mobile

It's in the upstairs of a mall. But this is really good food. Rice, chicken veggies and spices in a hot pot. Takes 15 minutes before you can partake and not burn your mouth but, at the bottom of the pot is this wonderful hard rice with all the flavor baked in. Simply wonderful. One pot could feed four.

“Awesome & Unexpected”

I had the kim chee stew. Wow, it was hot. My husband had the spicy pork; it was really good but really spicy. They know how to make it hot. Really good food.

“Always excellent food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2014

Never thought as an English men, I would be tempted to love any other cuisine. However, my wife has discovered this tiny little eatery when passing through the Orchid Plaza. We stopped for a quick lunch with no expectations. The service at the counter was very fast and friendly even though the place looked busy. We didn't wait long at all, and when our food arrived, t was sizzling hot and really, really tasty. Great value for money. Next time, we will bring over our friends and try the kimchi pancake!!! Great job Corea Corea!

“Sizzling hot great value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2014 via mobile

Our family of three dined on Saturday evening at this quaint korean hideaway which we came across while strolling to woollies. It's very close to both Pullman hotels. The seating area is limited and no highchairs available, but we made do and there is enough room for strollers. The restaurant is popular and I'm glad we arrived at 6:30 before it became very busy. The staff are friendly, polite and provide fantastic service. I believe they take bookings as we had noticed two tables were reserved. The bibimbap was tasty and fun to stir in the hot stone bowl, and fantastic to keep the meal warm while we feed ourselves and mr. toddler. The bbq beef hotplate was just as morish. Very good servings as two dishes satisfied the three of us. We will definitely be back to try another dish.
