Stopped buy on the off chance and found this to be a great restaurant. I had the Bossam Rice $17, came with 6 side dishes (see photo). The food was excellent quality. A definite recommendation for tasty food on a budget.

We loved eating here. We ordered 3 meats to cook on the portable bbq and it came with a large selection of sides. Very tasty. Also it's BYO.

This is the third time I ate at Faro and it was the most delicious time I ate at Faros as well. During the trip to New Zealand to visit my girlfriend. I, she and her sister went out together to find something to eat on late Sunday. Most of the shop were closed at the time so we wandered... More

We went on boxing day for a family dinner. Food was great as usual - their side dishes never disappoint you. The restaurant is clean and well-decorated. I would definitely recommend this place if you are craving for good Korean food:)

Went there with a group of friends about 10 of us. The atmosphere and decor of the restaurant is great. Had to make a reservation before hand and this place tends to get busy for dinners. The food was great and had a lot of choices. Totally enjoyed the food and service here.

We had dinner there with our 2 kids. It pays to book in advance if you want to get a nice table at the back of the restaurant. We hadn't so were seated close to the entrance. The BBQ menu was fantastic, particularly the beef and pork and the side dishes that come with it can be refilled for free.... More

I have walked by this location often but never visited. I am glad I finally did. I had a hot pot bulgogi. It was delicious and came with rice on the side. There were several small side dishes of various items such as fish flakes and bean sprouts. Plus, the server would give you one refill on the small sides.... More

We come here for lunches fairly regularly. The food is very good, and the specials are $15 for a whole set... I'm a fan. Note this is a better place than the Newmarket outfit.
