“Not your usual restaurant.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 November 2012 via mobile

For those wanting something a little different, this would be a good choice. Hard to find at the rear of Spices restaurant but worth a look.
You'll find a little BBQ in the middle of your table & your meal is cooked right there. Very tasty & good value for money.

“Nice place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 October 2012 via mobile

Good food and atmosphere. Picked off the menu and regretted not getting the banquet, so I would advise doing a banquet. Good service.

“Two words... kimchi pancakes!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2012

We love the Korean BBQ restaurant! Firstly, it can be tricky to find because you have to walk through Spices Restaurant to a second room at the back; although it's better signposted than it used to be.
The Korean staff are gorgeous and very friendly. They've come to know I love the Margaret River Sandalford Rose and whenever I go they generously fill my glass!
The room is decorated in chocolate brown leather chairs and an open BBQ on each table means that you can either cook your own meat or get something cooked for you but we love to cook our own. Each meal is accompanied by numerous side dishes of pickled vegetables and other delicious little bits and pieces. The meal is also preceded by some lettuce with a wasabi vinegarette... which I would kill to know how they make it... I love it so much!
Do not go past the kimchi pancakes, they are absolutely morish.
We usually get the spicy chicken and beef fillet bbq but the pork belly is also stunning.
If you happen to take the kids, make sure you get them the 'Nemo' icecream. It will prove to be a great hit.
If you love Korean food you will love Korean BBQ Glenelg.

“Great experience here.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 May 2012

It is a bit strange going to a restaurant and cooking your own food, but it is great here.

The restaurant is hidden, it is at the back of Glenelg Spices and not very spacious. But at each table, there is a bbq set up in the middle where you can cook your food & some Koren vegetables/rice.

If you do not understand how it works, the waiters/waitresses do explain everything for you, and if you are not comfortable they will stand there and cook it for you.

We have ordered the chicken and the prawns - and have cooked them at our own pace to eat with the vegetables/rice supplied and then ordered more.

Food is great priced, would recommend to anybody.
