Weekends are very busy for this restaurant. Either book, or get here at around 6pm. Staples of galbi x 2 and home made noodle pot was plenty. You can rely on the waitress to cook the galbi or do it yourself if you feel a rush.

We were craving Korean food - BBQ, rice noodle, kimchi, Mandu....the works. We stumbled upon Sorabol in Miramar Mall through online search. It's a casual place, and neatly maintained. The marinated beef was quite tasty and love that they provide large pitcher of tea. Otherwise the food was quite average and slightly greasy. The arrive was very poor, with the... More

I'm impressed with the little dishes, and particularly like the kimchi. The rice wine with cucumber strips, as recommended by the Service Staff, is really good. Main dish serving was abundant. Service is prompt and helpful. Will visit this place again in future.

It's a Korean style barbecue. Food is ok, meat is fine and prices are average for Hong Kong. The restaurant is inside a mall.

The price is just what you could expect from a restaurant located in the heart of the city. The service wasn't that bad since the Korean server cooked our meat, but the Nepalese waitresses keep talking among themselves and don't really focusing on their surroundings. The food was amazing and we had a decent dinner.

Been from time to time. Spacious enough standard decor. Consistent good quality; perhaps on the pricey side. Complimentary traditional six side dishes vary but usually included classic kimchi, bean sprouts and spinach. The raw beef (Korean style beef tartare) was delicious and short rib bulgolgi was tasty. Service was okay.

Service is a disaster. All the Nepalese staff if not chatting amongst themselves, are ignoring you or acting as if they are doing you a favour by serving you some tea. Food is small portions, and I'm talking about those freebie veggie dishes they give you. How cheap can you get Sorabol? Too successful for your own good? No more.... More

Had another great meal here this weekend. Ordered jumbo galbi, was so good, we followed up with another one. That's 4 strips in total. That and a Samgyetang was just so good.
