I have ordered takeaway from here twice and eaten in once. The takeaway was for dinner and I ordered a stir fry with noodles and it was delicious. The eat in was for lunch and I was equally as satisfied with the sizzling hot plates that came out. Very fresh.

I'd been wanting to try this place for quite awhile but was always put off by it's 'hole in the wall' exterior on a main road. Finally went there on a Saturday night when a friend came to catch up and we didn't want to spend a lot of money. It only has about 20 seats and is a very... More

A winner; went there with a couple of friends who live in the (somewhat unappealing) neighborhood. The place is a funky nondescript little place. But the food is absolutely delish and very reasonably priced indeed. The soup with veggie dumplings I ordered was one of the best I had in a long while, and the seafood pancake was very generous...

Myself and friends have been coming here for the last 25 years, it is small, service not up there, but the food is great. I have friends who come over yearly and this is one place we have to visit. Love their Korean spring rolls, pancakes, maudu. I think to people who have not gone here before Open Korea may... More

I am travelling alone and requested the Korean (all you can eat I think) BBQ as the next table were in the middle of it and it looked amazing. I was pretty sure it would be for more than one and yes minimum 2 but waiter spoke to chef and I was allowed! Massive amount of food which I could... More

The previous reviews of this place aren't so great, but those reviews aren't that recent either. We arrived at the restaurant with a booking and we were seated at a table. We were quickly attended to and within 10 minutes of ordering, the entree arrived (Tokoyaki) and it was magnificent! Followed by that were our mains. Husband and I ordered... More

we had an all you can eat voucher for 2 people but we only got roughly the amount of 2 servings. The first serving was of descent amount but we had to ask for the second and third servings which put together was less than one portion. After we finished eating the third time the waitress came and asked if... More

I should have checked the review before I bought the voucher. I was really disappointed with this restaurant (I would say Food court level not a restaurant). Booking process --> I called the restaurant 2 weeks in advance to make booking on the Valentine day. He said please send SMS for the booking details. I did but never received a... More

I’d read some reviews on Urbanspoon and elsewhere about the restaurant before we went, and was prepared for the worst possible service. Other guests (particularly those using vouchers like we had) had complained about the slowness of service and surliness of staff, with some waiting up to twenty minutes to get another round of food to barbecue. I don’t doubt... More
