Firstly the place is just great!!
My mother-in-law is Korean and it was not long before Korean became my first choice when eating 'ethnic'. Galbi is so close to authentic its scary! Scary GOOD!!
The food is fresh and brilliant. The cooking of your own meets on your own little grill is a neat change to the run of the mill 'point and order' restaurant. It is great when going out with friends... such a conversation point and can really add to a festive, entertaining evening.
The owners are knowledgeable and passionate about their place and really go out of their way to make sure you are happy and enjoying the food they love so much.
My wife and I can't say enough about Galbi. It has become one of our favorite spots in Cape Town.
Thanks to these guys for bringing a bit of Korean greatness to Cape Town!!!

One of the two owners of this Korean restaurant greeted us with a big grin and made us share his passion for Korea where he spent some time teaching English. When he came back to SA, he wanted to share the culinary delights of South Korea and opened this very trendy and creative restaurant.
You cook your own food and discover great associations of taste while having a lot of fun. All this at a very very good price.
TO BE DISCOVERED !

Something way different. You get to cook you own meal over a burner, food was delicious and fresh. Meat was excellent, good size portions, staff was very, very friendly. Would definitely recommend to anyone. Great vibe as well
