Best Affordable korean BBQ buffet in City. Delicious korean banchan, many varieties of meat, sauces, soup, cooked food. With the price they charging, it’s really worth it. Really recommended this restaurant and will come back again in the future.

This place was amazing. Paid $35.00 for buffet all you can eat. There was soo much to choose. Service was excellent and the food was incredible. Only downfall was the selection of drinks. Would definitely come back.

Went for dinner on a Sunday night, didn't have to book as it was about 3/4 full. Struck by the assortment of meats, both marinated and plain as well as the variety of sides. Also fried rice/steamed rice, soups, fried food, sushi, marinated calamari, squid...and of course fruit. The service was friendly and they changed our grill regularly and removed all dirty plates quickly. The price was $34.95/person which was a nice surprise also. Would expect to pay more for the food they offered. You won't be disappointed. If you don't know how to eat at a Korean buffet, just copy everyone around you.More

Most all you can eat buffets start at $22 here at lunchtime just $16. Time limit is 1 1/2 hrs. Yes it's basic, tired furnishings, timber chairs feeling of oil.aluminium cookware. Yet a good range of food on offer hot to cold, self cook soup...and dessert plus it is licensed. Not a place for a night out but a quick fill up! It is what you pay for in a venue!More

I didn't expect high quality cuisine when I walked in and paid my $15.90, but I did get amazing value. There's loads of food choices. Plenty of meats, veg, noodles, salads, and hop pot ingredients . All were of a good quality. This is a...go-to place if you are hungry.More

By chance we passed by this place as we were searching for a place to rest and have dinner. $34.90 sounds like a good value especially on a day we've had and what a surprise. We got here at around 7pm and was seated quite...promptly. My husband came back to our table soon after quite excited exclaiming, "you won't believe the range they have here". So many ranges from cold cuts, seafood, premade items, sauces, soups, free cordial and soft serve ice cream! For 1 hour and 30 minutes time limit, we really made the best of it. Our hot plates were changed regularly without having to ask them to, table cleared regularly and wait staff were quite friendly. Sure enough, within 15 minutes of us seating down, the joint started to build with a queue obvious from where we were seating. When we finished, walking down the stairs we noticed the queue is all the way down the stairs to the streets where as their neighbour ala carte korean restaurant was empty. Can't believe the rating for this place is so low. Such a lucky find. Fyi, some of the cuts were extremely fatty, however we came for value and sure enough it didn't disappoint. There is a $15 penalty for wasting food and we can understand that.More

I went to this buffet at lunch. It's cost $15.90 with no limit time. The buffet is Korean style. A lot of choices food and also included fruits and desert. When I was there they provided fresh cherry which was fantastic. Good value for the...price. The toilet was clean. The only downside was the table a bit sticky from oil. Overall was great.
