The food was not brilliant, the advertising of the lunch special is misleading, the service is terrible and they add a ten percent service charge that you don't have to pay. Also, they have heat lamps that make a continuous ding ding ding ding ding ding ding ding ding ding ding ding ding ding ding ding noise which is not... More

Firstly may I say that whilst I am not Korean my dinner companion is, and whilst I would find it hard to comment on the cuisine of another culture, these are his thoughts too, adding authenticity and authority to this review. The food is overpriced with our average meal costing £9. Whilst eating our starters we were asked to move... More

I don't know whats worse, the unauthentic 'Korean' food or the staff and management being rude.. Firsty If you do choose to visit the restaurant and you are not impressed, do not pay the service charge by law its not compulsory and you have the right not to pay for it! Especially when its £5-10. You dont recieve a service... More

We enjoyed the kimchi pancakes and vegetarian soups. All served with courtesy. The food was spicy and flavoursome - very interesting to try different tastes. We all thoroughly enjoyed our meal.

Food was okay but a bit overpriced. The dipping sauce for BBQ was plain and had no taste. Service was a bit slow and unprofessional. If you have been to Asia before, you would expect more about the meal. But here in the UK, this restaurant is quite outstanding for the taste of Asian food.

Went this place to celebrate New Years with a small group of friends and everything was good. Spoke afterwards and everyone agreed food was good but not outstanding. I enjoyed the vast majority of my meal however there was a slight confusion as to who ordered what due to a slight language barrier and our lack of knowledge of Korean... More

We arrived in Manchester in early on New Years' Eve. After dropping everything at the Hotel we went out to find some dinner. This little Korean dinner placed caught our attention and we decided to check inside. Picked the menu that seemed more diverse. We really enjoyed every meal and soups that were brought into our table. Good price for... More

We visited this restaurant today. 40 mins after we ordered, we still got nothing even the drinks. So we asked why we still didn't get our drinks, after 20 mins, we had our drinks. Then we wait 10mins till the first dish on our table. Three tables which came after us, they already had their dinners. Then we asked how... More

It was ok. The service was reasonable lots of waiters/waitresses However it felt you were being rushed to allow others in. Food was reasonably priced. Good location on tram line.
