Amazing little hidden gem! 4 stories of hip, urban vibe serving authentic Korean BBQ and cuisine. Highly recommend!
Try the BBQ banquets, seafood hot pot and the bib-bim-bab!

Stumbled across this little gem when searching for a place to eat dinner in one of the smaller back streets in the Melbourne CBD. Having never eaten Korean food, we thought we would try something different and were not disappointed. The restaurant is very nice, has lovely decor throughout and the staff were all very friendly. We ordered the BBQ buffet for two not really sure of what we were going to get, and I think it is fair to say it exceeded our expectations. The majority of the marinated meat included in the buffet was cooked at our table on what can only be described as a mini table-top BBQ on hot coals with several side dishes including salads, relishes and other dips. Everything was really delicious and very filling. The meal finished with their signature black sesame ice cream which was something we had never heard of before but was very nice. Overall, the whole meal and service were absolutely great, and very reasonably priced. Would definitely eat here again and recommend to others. A great find!!!

This bustling spot is most likely the best Korean Grill in pathetic city. The Gal-Bi and marinated pork belly are delicious, as is most of the rest of the grilled meat menu. The rest of the menu is fairly ordinary, and this is definitely not a place for vegetarians. The kimchi is also very good, and generously gets topped up throughout the meal.

Booked for table of 4 via email about 4 weeks prior to date. Resent email a few days later changing from 4 to 6 people. Only heard back from that about a week later. On the day itself, we were running late so I rang to tell them we will be in at 8,30pm instead of 8pm but they thought we wanted to make a booking. Their English is not the best. When we got there at 8.30pm, it turned out they had NO booking AT ALL for us, under my name - and that was booked 4 weeks ago! The manager (boss) asked who we booked it with (as if it was OUR fault) and I told him Jin. Jin was the manager and the boss, and he was the one I was speaking with!! I looked through the book and there was absolutely NOTHING on the page for 8 or 8.30pm or 4 or 6 people under our name. He then told me not to get angry. I told him why wouldn't anyone be angry if there was a booking made 4 weeks ago. The restaurant was crowded. Anyway, they got us a table. Food was not the best we have had. Prices were average, but not the cheapest we have experienced. I would rate it average but will not need to come back again. Jin apologised which was gracious of him (and so he should) but harm's done.
