Definitely worth eating here! We had to queue for approx 15 mins - which we took as a good sign. We were not disappointed. The food was amazing! Staff were very friendly and very happy to make recommendations.

Too sweet and oily to our liking. Also a bit salty. Disappointed. However, I can see that the locals enjoyed it. Another table of Korean family also like it....
