Located opposite Vibe Savoy hotel, this little hole in the wall boasts a thorough menu at affordable prices. I got the spicy fried chicken set for only $12 and it came with delicious purple rice, Kimchi and fresh salad. The chicken delivered on heat and crispiness. The shop is open till 10pm and does takeaway meals in a nice bento-type box with separate sections for the food. I went back three times during my short stay in Melbourne. Highly recommended!

Went there by happenstance while walking around Melbourne's CBD and had a great lunch. This eatery offers tables inside, a terrace and takeaway.
The menu is pretty straightforward and offers the classics of Korean cuisine : soups, noodles, fried chicken, bulgogi etc.
They also offer awesome lunch plates including kimchi, salad, a main and rice for around 12AUD.
Service is fast, agreeable and discreet.
Food is good, tasty and exempt of MSG (monosodic glutamate) which is great.
Portions are generous and reasonably priced. A really nice place to go for a quick, original and tasty bite of Korean street food. I will definitely come back.

This is one of my go-to places for lunch. Fast, delicious, and reasonably priced. The bulgogis are great and always in generous proportions.

Busy Corporate lunch location. Tried the Beef Bulgogi. Not bad for $12.

The place was quite packed when I arrived for a quick lunch. Had to order something quick and surprisingly the food came pretty quick. Food was pretty average though.

Keen to try this place for dinner, to get a good grasp of other items on the menu.
