“Great Korean Food”
Reviewed 25 March 2014

Outwardly its a fairly challenging position on the Pacific Highway in a row of un-notable shop fronts. However, don’t be put off so easily. This is a small ‘family run’ type of establishment. The menu had a good selection though limited in number… but then how many dishes do you want in a single sitting??!!

The staff were friendly and helpful. The prices here are not cheap (especially considering the situation . A meal for two without drink or dessert was $50. Happily the food turned out to be excellent and were were happy and fully satisfied. Condiments of kimchi and other salads / pickles were included. Definitely recommended.

“Great food, friendly service”
Reviewed 9 February 2014 via mobile

The food was tasty and fresh (BBQ cooked at the table). The one and only waiter on the night managed a busy little place well and was friendly and chatty and despite not being Korean was clearly enthusiastic about the cuisine he was serving. The meal was also good value. Only downer was the table was sticky and needed a good old Spray'n'Wipe!!!

“On our regular list”
Reviewed 5 October 2013

I've had takeaway from here a few times and have always been happy. More than happy.
Dined here recently and it was really really good...hot food served directly to the table. Delicious. Great friendly service and the chef explained dishes to us. Loved everything. Place is very clean and simple. Great place for Saturday lunch. Inexpensive. BYO.

“Nice family run business”
Reviewed 9 September 2013

First timer here. Not impressed by dumplings, but the assortment of sides and all our mains were yummy. They are perfectionists and I respect this. A bit pricey but has a very nice atmosphere and everything is super fresh. Nice dinner.

“Good food”
Reviewed 1 April 2013

Always have nice food at Taste of Korea (particularly the Kimchee). Cheung and his staff always provide warm and friendly service. Only thing is that it's getting a little bit on the expensive side.
