Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Definitely it is not authentic Korean but it is a quite satisfying meal with more than reasonable price. Very friendly staff and chef, dumplings were home made, freshly cooked and delicious, bibimbap (rice bowl) was nice too. Family of three (with one very hungry teenager)...were fed and even had left over takeaway after spending about $60. We would visit here again.More

We had the most delicious spicy pork stir fried chewy udon noodle last night. It was really delicious with the right amount of vegetables, meat, sauce and spices. I am a very fussy eater, but I could not fault the dish. Sadly, it is not...on the menu anymore as it used to be many years ago, but the owner was kind enough to prepare it for us as a local special. We will return for more, for sure.More

We popped in for a casual dinner after a long day out and were so impressed we came back again another night on our week long holiday, despite there being so many local food options. Loved the galbi and sweet and spicy chicken.

When a restaurant says "homemade noodles you expect exactly that. There is only one homemade item on the menu and that is the mando(dumplings). The rest is a boring bland soups and rice. Small portions, glass noodles and inspiring vegetables. The prices are too high...for low quality.More

Chanced upon this eatery. Delicious food of generous serving at reasonable price. Friendly service staffs too. Love their fried chicken … couldn’t finish my portion at the eatery, pack the remaining portion back to my apartment and they still taste as good even after a...few hours later 🤭. Highly recommend this eatery 👍👍👍More

Great prices and excellent food. Customer service was on point. KFC spicy was amazingly crunchy and had the perfect spice. Cold noodle soup with beef had a broth that never ended and was to die for!
