Reviewed 20 January 2014

We tried the new Owl and Minerva a couple of weeks back, curious about what it was like inside (there are not windows that see into the restaurant). We were very pleasantly surprised. The food was fantastic and reasonably priced. Great service as well. My only complaint is that for the entire time we were in the restaurant there was a music video playing on a repeat loop. The song was depressing and played over and over. My suggestion would be to get a good muzak station going or something. Towards the end it was driving us nuts. Otherwise, a good experience. We will return.

Perhaps our expectations were too high, but we heard good things about other Owl of Minerva Resaurants in other cities so we thought we were in for a good meal. The opposite was true as we were disappointed in our Kamjatang (pork Bone Soup), which was not spicy enough and had odd seasonings. The amount if meat was meagre compared with our favoured Korean restaurant on a different street in Hamilton. The Tangsuyuk (sweet and sour pork) was also not so great. They put an effort into the decor, but it was not remotely Korean and a bit on the tacky side. The Korean pop show on TV was too loud. From now on, we'll stick to the other Korean Restaurant that we like much better.
