We always come here when we visit cairns. The servings are big, prices reasonable and food fantastic! The ambience is s but lacking with the food court atmosphere but great for a quick lunch.

Went for lunch and had the beef. Cost less than $10 USD. If you eat there, all the kimchi you want. Food was delicious! Only downside is there is no Wifi.

Corea Corea offers authentic Korean cuisine at a reasonable price, and we enjoyed it so much that we returned for a second meal during our trip! The staff was helpful and friendly, and orders were prepared quickly.

Doesn't look like much. Looks like Britney preforms like a spicy Korean Beyonce. Yum. Do it. You can trust me more than a Korean president

Let's put things into perspective. Firstly, this is an unassuming outlet in a 'food court' and by association, the food should be of a below par standard, appealing to the greedy and disillusioned.
