“Authentic, Delicious, Reasonable, Fast Service”
Reviewed January 15, 2012

Tried this restaurant with hesitation as we usually ask for recommendation before trying for the first time. But this one happens to be not disappointing at all.

We tried quite a lot from the menu and most of them are good. The portion size and price are perfect, the service is really fast even when they're full, and off course the taste is authentically korean.

All the workers including the chef, waiter/tress are native koreans.

Try the bulgogi and all the grills are good. The jap chae is superb and the rib soup is mind blowing. My son kept asking to go eat here again and again because of the soup.

Come earlier for lunch or dinner to avoid queue or reserve in advance.

“We go here every time we visit Melbourne”
Reviewed June 16, 2011

The food is always good, filling and when with friends really reasonable. I love Korean food so always enjoy eating here. The staff are friendly, usually Korean students and service is quick. I am looking forward to going back! It does not have good wine list, and the Korean raspberry sine and beers were not really that great.

“Korean in Chinatown”
Reviewed April 19, 2011

What am I doing eating Korean in Melbourne's Chinatown? The Age one-hatted dumpling restaurant nearby was booked out until quite late, so as I like Korean cuisine, this restaurant looked like it was worth trying. This restuarant is situated on the first floor up one flight of stairs. Korean was being spoken by the wait and kitchen staff. So, we
decided to order a classic, the seafood pancake, the "pajeon", plus some grilled sole (fish). The set meal included the mandatory side dishes. So I was quite satisfied with this "interpolator" in Chinatown.

“okay for a korean restaurant, but there are better ones”
Reviewed January 17, 2010

Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Food is fresh, and excellently prepared. However, upstairs lack atmosphere, and the menu is incredibly overpriced.
