“Great food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 October 2013 via mobile

We had bibimbap (vegetable and minced beef with rice and egg), Kim Chi soup and pork ribs with sweet sauce, and it was the best meal we had while traveling the South Island. A delicious and welcome change from burgers, fish and chips, pizzas and take out food that we have been having. Would highly recommend this if you would like a refreshing change to your usual diet!

“Amazing Flavours”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 September 2013 via mobile

Half the price but more than twice the flavour and service of most places we have been to. This is the first Korean restaurant we have been to. We had kimchi seafood pancake for entree, one entree was easily enough for the two of us. For mains we had sweet spicy chicken and spicy seafood. Delicious strong flavours. Mains came with four side dishes between us and a bowl of rice each. The service was outstanding and time was taken to explain the meals to us. Make sure you try the ginseng wine!

“Good Korean food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2013

What a pleasant surprise this was, the place itself is very odd inside and it was very very cold, we moved away from the main part into the back room area, but it was still very cold. However the food was excellent, a real surprise how tasty the food was and so different to anything else we have tried before. The staff were very helpful as we were not sure what to order, but our choice was excellent. Its very good value for money and its a BYO wine so that was a bonus as well. Will return in the summer when its a bit warmer!

“Interesting food and good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2013

Our Wednesday dining group of four opted for this Korean choice as a change from our usual Asian choices. The restaurant was busy and had a varied clientele dining with us including families and small groups of young people all having an enjoyable time. We shared four mains including seafood pancake(delicious), spicy squid with Chilli, sweet spicy pork and a marinated Bulogi beef dish. All were very good, tasty and came with rice, tea and side dishes of Kimchi, sprouts and seaweed. With BYO wine this was great value and good quality food at $18 per head. The server was very busy but gave us good advice and guided us through the menu. I have been to Seoul and considered this to be as good as the food we experienced there.We can't wait to go back and try some of the other dishes on offer.
