Went for dinner. Ended up waiting a lifetime for our meals and drinks too. We never even received our steamed rice. You cook your own food at the table, so I can't understand why it took so long to bring out raw meat. The marinade was tasty but there wasn't much meat per serve and not great quality meat either.

Went there with the wife and family last Saturday night on the spur of the moment. Best decision ever. The staff were fantastic and recommended as well as demonstrated food and cooking method. Food was great and was a really good atmosphere. Will definetely go again (and again).

Good service, high quality food. Amazing wagyu beef. 很正宗的韩式烤肉,是炭火的,和牛,炸鸡,必须点,太好吃了。还有牛骨,五花肉也很赞,石锅拌饭,豆腐汤很正宗。来阿德必去的一家餐厅。

This is our second visit within a month. First visit was good as the staff was helpful with cooking the barbecue (had the time to teach us initially). They had to cancel our soup order after 5 minutes because they said it was not available that time. Barbecue was great, except for the squid. Chicken and salad was also good.... More

Grandson was disappointed that it's no longer a smorgasbord however it's pretty unique with the charcoal burners in the table. Meat was very tender, the waitresses helpful in explaining how the charcoal burners which are set into the tables worked. The manager explained that due to customers filling their plates with food, that they did not eat, then got tossed... More

We have travelled from Melbourne to Adelaide many times in the past few years, and have always been tempted to come to this place - On this trip we finally bit the bullet, but could safely say, maybe we shouldn't have. The staff were friendly enough, but that is probably the extent of the positive feedback goes. It is a... More

We dined there on a Friday night and arriving at 9pm, we were the last customers. We should have guessed.. Nearly Half the plates were empty, and the staff not willing to refill them. Out of 6 different meats we tasted, only one (lamb ribs) was good, the others tasted weird (Chili chicken..)

We have children who absolutely love this restaurant. It's very family friendly and the staff are polite and helpful. The variety is great on the weekends and the ambience reminds me of when I use to live in South Korea. The novelty of cooking or own food is fantastic and a lot of fun for all. Top quality cuts of...
