Celebrating our fifth year anniversary last weeks, my partner got a recommendation from our friends about this place. We booked a table at 7:30. However, when we arrived, the table is not ready and got told that the table hasn't left. We waited 10 mins...for them to get the table for us. And when we sat down, it was not set up!!! There is no water and glass during the whole time even under request. Got recommended trying the variety set and adding extra sides. GOD! The food is so bad and overpriced. Waited so long for the pancake and BBQ to come. The deep fried cheese sticks have no cheese inside. Dumplings are boring, pancake is so-so, BBQ?? It feels like the meat is steaming. Beef is hard to chew, pork is stinky. We did not get reminded that set menu is enough food and get suggested to add more items??????? The drinks only come after the food arrived and got told the printers are not working. Terrible management, terrible services, feel like forced to spend money. We will never be back.More

2nd visit to Geonbae, it was a catch up birthday lunch with my sister. The girls made us so welcome. My sister loved watching food being cooked at our table and $25 pp banquet lunch was perfect for us! Delicious!

What's not to like about food being cooked right in front of you :) Scored a booth last time which always helps me better hear the table conversation in a busy environment. Having said that, there are also tables outside which are great on a...sunny day or summer night. Have had the variety set menu multiple times which easily suits a big eater, especially when the chicken comes out!More

We just love the bbq style and great service and awesome food. We had a new employee and she was nervous but the staff helped her tremendously and supported her learning journey. Service was above and beyond as we arrived early and were still very...much welcomed with drinks outside before dinner. We loved the experience and so did our friends.More

We had a family dinner at this restaurant. We had the full menu that cost $50 per person. We had our own personal chef at the table who BBQ'd the meal right at the table. It was fantastic! Surprisingly, we were there for 3 hours...and the time just flew by. The food tasted beautiful and spicy, and there was so much of it, that for the last course we couldn't fit in the friend chicken, and ended taking it home for lunch the next day. We had a beer tower at the table, which was also fun. We will definitely be going back. The service was superior and the staff were excellent. Highly recommended.More

I think that here is DEFINITELY the place for kids, because of the fried chicken. I believe, this is just my opinion, but I believe that here is better than KFC. Some of you might not believe me but I think it’s true. My family...and friends also always love the food and I sometimes I beg just to go there. I recommend this place for chicken lovers.More

Friends have raved about this place so we took our teenager daughters and their grand parents who ‘meat and three veg’ type people and we all enjoyed the food. We opted for the 50pp banquet and were all extremely full at the end. A great...and enjoyable experience. Great service and deco was very nice too.More

I was happy to find a place close to Clyde. I usually travel to Clayton or Glen Waverley for my Korean fix. It’s at a great location and the service is great. I have been there three times so I do like the food. I...am very particular since living in Korea for 10 years . The side dishes are ok and the BbQ is good. The kimchi soup just needs a deeper flavour ... maybe stronger kimchi but the tofu is ample which I love. I think if you have never had Korean this would be a good spot to start.More

We had a midwinter, weekday lunch at 3pm so I reckon they would. Give a call first to check.
