Ha, this place really tests how much you want your Korean food, by having you take a rickety, scary elevator up to their restaurant. Luckily, nothing happened, but definitely seemed like an elevator from the depths of evil. There are plenty of tables inside, very spacious. We were seated immediately and ordered a mixed plate of meats, including squid, chicken,... More

This restaurant has great ambiance as a family restaurant as well as a business meeting venue. The Korean BBQ is excellent however, the bimbimbap dolsot is just ok. Would come here again for the Korean BBQ.

The serves were big and service seemed relaxed and comfortable. I don't like Korean food generally and this was a work lunch. Those at the table that like Korean food though it was good.

We never get bored with the foods. They are delicious, great big portion. We especially love the Kim chi fried rice, the chicken with touch of spicy. Actually all of them! There is steam egg with seafood underneath for non spicy eater especially for the children. All in all, highly recommended.

It was the first time I had Korean food. I love it!!! The barbecue was very delicious. The side dishes were also great. They only have GOOD food! The only minus point for me was that it was very noisy in the restaurant. We could not talk to each other normally.

I have lived in Korea and been to many Korean restaurants in my time but this has to be one of the worst. They recently renovated so my friends and I thought we'd see if the food had improved after several years of avoiding this place but were very disappointed. The prices are exuberant for the low quality-not a good... More

The food is good. And the service is ok. But I didn't expect too much in a korean bbq, we just want to eat the food and have soju. We went here a few times with work, because it is a big place that fits groups of people. And we never get disappointed so we keep coming back!:) Korean bbq... More

I used to love eating at this place, BUT they've recently renovated and prices have gone up BUT the quality has gone down. I've ordered a meal and didn't necessarily get it because although it does not specify in the menu, it's only available at lunch. What kind of service is that? Then half way through my meal, I find... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Tiger-flanked archways on Dixon Street mark the entrance to the “little Asia” of Sydney. A walk through Chinatown is a feast for the senses where aromas, tastes, sounds and visions of dancing tigers transport you to a different world. Chinatown visitors can expect a melting pot of Asian food at the neighbourhood's specialty delis and groceries. From yum cha to handmade noodles, BBQ ducks hanging in the window to Asian sweets and bakeries, there is something for all tastes. Paddy’s Markets is the largest flea market in Sydney where you can find souvenirs, clothing, gifts and fruit and vegetables at unbeatable prices. At night, Chinatown comes alive with entertainment including theatre, nightclubs and bars that are open until the early morning.
