We enjoyed our classic, well cooked and presented Korean meals at Il Mee. With many Koreans eating there, especially compared to the other Korean restaurants in the vicinity, you know that it is quality and popular Korean food. The price and proportions were excellent. The place is simple, welcoming and straight forward. It had a community neighbourhood feel about it,... More

We enjoy a lot different kinds of yakisoba. One of them were extremely spice. We loved it. The place is not for romantic or business dinners, but as a traveller you would enjoy a good meal.

Always love the Korean food. It's small restaurant with simple decoration, not so busy in the early winter evening. Had the beef soup, a little bit spicy, but tasty, and very cheap!

And it isn't the same - IT'S BETTER The place has had a makeover and looks great. The food is even better than before. And... Believe it or not... It is actually cheaper! Yes, dropped from $14 to $12. I give it the highest possible recommendation.

We went for an early family dinner, and it didn't disappoint. Excellent introduction to Korean cuisine without breaking the bank

I always come here for lunch. Spicy Pork with Fish Roe Soup, oh yum!! However lately they have changed their kimchi from fresh kimchi to ordinary kimchi which you can get from any other Asian store. I understand that there may be more people prefer the ordinary kimchi, but it would be good if they can offer both options for... More

Cheap and cheerful. Tasty, good value, huge portions. A great find It was quite spicy, but you can request your meal to be mild. 3% surcharge on credit card. Delicious and filling

Stopped here for lunch with my wife. She had Dolsat. Beef quality was poor. I wanted beef soup with Octopus. Waitress asked if I wanted the big one, not explaining this was for 4-6 people! Again Beef was not good and bill came to $52. Thought she was clever cheating the dumb tourists, I'm sure.
