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.

We went to the buffet. An excellent night out. Interesting concept with no shortage of both, already prepared and cook your own food at the table. This was our second visit, this time we took along friends and they too, were impressed. We will continue to use Geonbae.

Celebrating an anniversary, we went to Geonbae and we weren't disappointed. We had the self-serve, self-cook all you can eat buffet. Depending on what day you visit you will pay $49.50 - $59.50pp. Very tasty with a good variety of foods, several cuts of beef, chicken, pork and vegetarian, either marinated or for the more sensitive palate un-marinated. There are also a number of Chef cooked dishes available. Staff very friendly, helpful and attentive to our needs. A great experience and recommended if you want to try different tastes and experiences.

Had a 6.30 booking. Only one other group of 8 was in so it wasn't like it was busy! The service was below average as we waited over an hour for drinks which we ordered as soon as we sat down. They weren't very accommodating when it came to bringing a meal out for the kids to keep them from starving! We ordered the $49 banquet and it came out not consistent with the menu. We ended up eating around 8.30!! The food I must say was delicious and made up for the lack of service. MAKE SURE YOU CHECK YOUR BILL!!! We had things added on that we didn't even order!!

Great, fresh food! My wife and I had bibimbap, pork for her, chicken for me. I loved the freshness, not overcooked at all. The generous portion of vegetables in them was most enjoyable. The complimentary dishes were also fresh and yummy. The lotus root chips were so good, brought some home for the kids, great with dip. Clean and neat, I can only imagine the place looks great at night. They do need more staff but this was Sunday lunch and only five tables filled at this time. Also, great staff — just one on the floor today, soldiering on with a smile and energy!

On the one hand, there was the terrible cheerful person who greeted us when we arrived and the pleasant lady from NZ who turned our meat. And then there was the other server who forgot orders and took food away before it was finished. We did the beef BBQ and I confess to be somewhat disappointed. The beef was tender but as we were weren't interested in either the cooked onion or mushrooms, there was no other flavour until we asked for kimchi. I would have thought at a Korean restaurant, kimchi would be served automatically. But no.

It’s one my favourite Korean places presently because the restaurant is beautiful and the location is stunning. The food is great quality too. We have been there twice and I really enjoyed the kimchi stew. The service is great and the set bibimpap was also good. I found the marinade on the beef a bit too sweet but that’s my personal opinion. I lived in Korea for 10 years so I know good Korean food and this was pretty ok ! Will be back . Take a walk on the pier after eating !

Lovely meal and loved how the food was cooked at the table. Staff were attentive and friendly I found the meal was very expensive. Would visit again but would save our return for a special occasion next time.

We enjoyed the experience that this restaurant provided. The food was great and the staff were very friendly. We had both dine in and takeaway and both were great.

My wife and I had lunch here and enjoyed the korean food. We ordered the set lunch for two (at $25 each) and a Crown Lager beer. It has dumplings for a starter, BBQ beef and pork as the main course and a side dish of korean style rice (Bibim Bap). Kim Chi as a side dish was complimentary.

Was surprised to find this well appointed Korean bbq restaurant in a sleepy seaside town. The food was low-spiced I guess to cater for the mainly Aussie clientele that find Korean bbq a novelty, nonetheless, it was fresh, friendly staffed the owner I understand is an Aussie guy smart enough to employ Koreans good at home style cooking.

This restaurant was a great find. They have a good selection of meals. They did an awesome version of my favorite Korean dish Bimbin Bap. I will definitely come here again to try some of the other yummy looking dishes. Great view. Great atmosphere and friendly service.
