Really nice beef for the kbbq and super fast service for a big group of people. They are also super helpful at cooking for those less experienced at using a Kbbq
Everything tasted delicious - Set 2B (Wagyu, beef fillet, 2 rice), plum wine, and side dishes. They always helped with the cooking and good service which was nice. We walked in with the expectation that our clothes will smell like BBQ after dining because of our past experiences at other Korean BBQ restaurants, but amazingly our clothes did not smell so that was great! It seemed really well ventilated. Would come again.
One of the best Korean BBQ restaurants in Melbourne City! Great food and service. It is advisable to make a reservation on weekend especially Friday. Enjoy!
Enjoyed an after races dinner with a group. Ordered various dishes to share, great value and tasty! Service was good and nothing seemed too much trouble. Would go back for sure.
Food was pretty good, however was a shame the staff did not assist with the cooking and some of the meat was left to burn.
Food were delicious but the portions were small. Service was alright. What amazed me was that they were still serving food even when it was close to midnight!
