“good beef stew, all else just ok”
Reviewed 10 April 2013

we arrived at 12pm when it opened and so were the first customers in the restaurant. no on was at the front door and we had to call someone's attention inside.
we ordered drinks - 2 cokes and 2 oj - which took a bit of time to come. actually after the appetizers and first dish arrived.
we ordered 2 bowls of rice - we needed to follow up since it seemed to have been forgotten.
the chicken bbq was ave, have tasted better elsewehere. the beef stew though was so soft and tender and just the right amount of sweetness.
service was inconsistent - one waitress was attentive and efficient but most were surly. don't know if that's how they really are or are taking their cue from the manager.
a bit expensive for casual dining - 4 people with 3 dishes and drinks HK$ 1,000

“Good location; it's at the apartment building where we stayed”
Reviewed 6 August 2012

The reason why we ate at this place as it's situated in the building where we stayed. When we looked at the menu, we thought to give it a try. Somewhere, I read that this Korean restaurant received some rewards a few years ago. In terms of price, it's slightly expensive but the food is good. Good service too.

Busy place during lunch and dinner. Many people is queueing to get table. When we finished our meals, the bill was right-away given by the waitress...

“Average Korean food opposite Time Square”
Reviewed 4 March 2012

We had the Set dinner for 2 and added an extra stone rice. The food is ok but the sirloin was not marinated.

I finished dinner in an hour, but waited 30 minutes for my ice-cream and my bill. I did not understand the cause of such delays.

The restaurant ventilation is not very good so expect to smell greasy after dinner.

“Great food especially the BBQ”
Reviewed 15 January 2012

We asked for one of the BBQ's and as each marble table has a removeable centre piece that exposes a burner we were able to cook our own marianaded meat. The food was slightly expensive but represented good value. Irritatingly they ran out of draft beer.
I would always recommend this restaurant, but it might be worth booking in advance.
