This place was packed from the time it opened. I can't believe there has been an amazing, authentic oriental/Korean BBQ place in Belfast for this long and we've. Or known. Having spent time in China with work and been to some amazing restaurants and then visiting Ktown in Los Angeles, my expectations were not too high for a corner restaurant... More

Great experience, go for the cook it yourself option. Great choices, the sort of meal you take time over and talk about for a long time until you go again!

Great buffet food here and fun experience cooking your own food with hotpot and BBQ at every table. However staff were extremely slow to come for assistance and had to ask 3 different waiters for water before some was eventually brought to the table. The restaurant was freezing cold, I believe it was completely unheated and I was not prepared... More

Enjoy our traditional BBQ and hot pot , I don't think people who don't know much about our food culture would love it much ,as everything are uncooked and we help ourselves to cook them while we are eating. My son and me go there regularly,the food are fresh and good selection. We enjoy it .

Went with a friend and we tried the BBQ. It was an interesting experience cooking your own meal at the table but the staff were very helpful and we got to try new food items. I think I would order from the menu next time.

I never knew this restaurant existed until I searched Korean food in Belfast, today. I couldn't believe it when I saw there was Korean bbq in this restaurant. I don't eat meat anymore but hubby loved it and he is a bit scared of trying new things. I had spicy soup with veg from the buffet. Really really spicy! All... More

Visited here with friends last night, amazing meal. The salted chili chicken and beef satay were amazing! Very authentic compared to most Chinese restaurants in NI. Worth every penny though reasonably priced. Packed up leftovers for us which we have just enjoyed. Fabulous, can't wait to go again
