Restaurant was empty, a real shame as the food was excellent and cheap. Just off Eat street in central rotorua. Bibimbap was one of best I've had, lots of fresh crunchy veg , and complimentary typical side dishes, including kimchi. Don't miss out, if you like Korean food, don't judge by slightly shabby appearance of restaurant. Very obliging waitress, I... More

My wife and I visited once whilst on holidays from Australia. We eat and cook lots of Asian dishes at home. We had a chicken stir fry and a beef bulgogi. Both dishes were very flavoursome and authentic with lots of extra sides. Very good price for dinner out. Not necessarily a romantic venue but it is licensed, good quality... More

A short walk from Novotel Lakeside Rotorua Hotel, along the EatStreet, this restaurant was not very striking and captured our attention only because we were craving for Korean food. The beef bulgogi was really flavorful and tender; marinade was to the sweet side which was how we liked it. Kimchi soup was heavenly robust and packed with the spicy-sourish punch... More

Home style Korean cooking. Not very inspiring but not difficult to eat either. Service is good. Seafood soup noodle has PATHETIC amount of seafood in it. 1 Mussel with shell plus a small prawn. Should have asked for beef or chicken.

Great place to go if you want great value for money. I enjoy the chicken stir fry, plenty of veges. Also love getting the side dishes. Always served in time as well.

I enjoyed the hotpot in this restaurant so much. I always come back to this restaurant whenever I go to Rotorua :)

You get greeted by a rude Chinese Korean waiter who I am sure has overstayed his visa. Not at all friendly (he clearly not done his Army Service) . Now to the food while my family is Korean we were shoved into a side area because we did not want to eat the awful smorgasbord on offer (the food looked... More

This was my first experience of Korean food. Despite then fact that I discovered that Korean food is not my thing, this gets a high rating. The best recommendation is that the restaurant was full, and we were the only non- Korean's there - always a good indication that this is authentic and excellent food. The decor is basic, one...

Hardest working hostess kept a full house going with delicious Korean fare at reasonable prices. Simply decorated family run joint that won't disappoint.
