“Surviving business”
Reviewed 7 October 2012

I always come here for dinner during my yearly trip to Auckland. Convenient for it's location in Queen Street. As cost of rent rising over the years, I noticed meal price also increased which acceptable, but the latest visit a little bit disappointed as hardly any beef in the spicy soup. Less and smaller portion of side dish.

“Korean in name only, and barely”
Reviewed 31 January 2012

Menu and venue looked fine when we scouted it after lunch, but dinner just didn't measure up to even basic Korean restaurant standards (having lived there for 5 years over 20 years) . Four side dishes tasted old and tired -- largely tasteless. Bibimbap had but a spoonful of meat and no accompanying soup. Doufu soup (soondubujigae) had no meat and no seafood. While the menu showed a few different soju (white spirits) options,only one was available. Service was slow and indifferent. Pity we ddin't go to the other nearby Korean restaurant.
