“Mediocre for HK”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2013

Waiters move in slow motion like they are depressed particularly Sazer. Staff looks really unhappy. Food is ok but nothing great. They bring you your Kalbi before your appetizers.

“Dangerous to Customers”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2013 via mobile

Overall the impression you get as you walk is is that of a well decorated dai pi dong.

Service is grumpy and almost as if you are getting in the way of their rest period.

Food is OK but nothing special.

However the realy bad thing is the dissregard to guest confort and safety. We were sat at a table in the far right corner of the restaurant from the entrance. Immediatlly adjacent to a service station. So close that one seat had to be removed so the staff could access the hot water boiler. Therin lies the danger; frequent trips to refill jugs of boiling water risked a spill onto my wife on every occasion.

“Tasty Korean BBQ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013

I enjoyed and can recommend this restaurant. I had the Set meal for two at HK$500 and found it excellent value as we had more than enough food. BBQ ribs and pork, stone bowl rice, noodles with all the extras. Staff were attentitive and cooked the food for us at the table.
I read some of the other reviews some of which are from a few years ago, but I enjoyed the food and found it tasty and the service was fine. I have had Korean BBQ in Korea which was better but this is Hong Kong!

“As a Korean in hk I was embarrassed by this place.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2011

Service staff had no interest. Food quality was bad. Serving sizes were tiny. Korean manager had zero interest in making the customer happy or even trying to help. If you want to get ripped off and terrible food this is the place for you. Never again. Go to Myung Ga instead it's much better.
