Super Star K Korean BBQ
Ranked #1,964 of 11,865 Restaurants in Singapore
Cuisines: Korean
Restaurant details
Reviewed May 19, 2013

I have been to the restaurant for at least 10 times in the past year, which says a lot considering the number of Korean restaurants available in Singapore (and down the street of Tanjung Pagar where it is located), but this experience was the worst. I will not be heading back there again.

Food was decent, I still think they have the best spicy BBQ pork around. Was greeted by a really nasty-faced worker, who demanded we order 4 meat items for 6 diners (3 men and 3 women). We attempted to negotiate as we were ordering other things on the menu, we wanted to order only 3 meat items. That was met with a nasty scowl again.

We found out there was no longer any free refill for the side-dishes. Nor the steamed egg. Any request for utensils, additional drinks or even the bill was met with a nasty scowl. Seems to be a uniformed theme of the workers there - maybe they are underpaid.

Our overall bill came up to $180 for 6 pax including drinks. Not pricey but not incredibly cheap either. I would not recommend anyone to head back. Their place was emptier than usual when we were there on Saturday night, I now know why.

Looks like I would now have to take my Korean BBQ craving somewhere else...

When we got there, we looked around and wondered if we were supposed to seat ourselves. Eventually, we did. There was no host, no greeting, nothing.
After we sat down, a guy brought us the menu and they put the charcoal on the hotplate. After we ordered, they brought us 6 side dishes - vegetable, bean sprouts, kimchi, some fish cake-like thing, steamed egg and mash potato salad. The steam egg was especially delicious. We ordered beef brisket slices and spicy chicken. Also a kimchi stew. The stew was tasty and spicy; great to warm the tummy. The beef, eaten with the lettuce is awesome. They also gave a plate with salt and pepper, raw garlic pieces, chili paste and some onion sauce.

They helped us cook the beef and chicken which was nice but we also felt abit rushed to finish our meal. When the chicken was cooking, we were sneezing, our nose started to drip and we were coughing. I suppose it was because of the chili from the spicy chicken. It was bad.

Try the grape juice, it was very refreshing.
The experience overall was different, food not bad and yes, despite what others say, you do leave the restaurant smelling like bbq. Its on your clothes, undergarments, hair, skin, everything! If you drive, leave your bag in the car.

We spent $72 for a portion of beef, a portion of chicken, kimchi stew and one grape juice.

The quality of the meat was poor. If you start with bad ingredients, the seasoning is not going to help much. The seafood pancake was tasteless.
