This restaurant claims to be Korean. The food is clearly not authentic being more Chinese in style. Taste was bland. The food is presented well but presentation is not everything. Prices were average. WARNING: When paying my bill I said that I wanted it paid...More

Unfortunately our experience was very average. The crab was old and stringy and had a vary strange taste. The prawns were definitely not fresh, visible by the colour and texture.

Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
