Amazing experience eating in this restaurant, staff was nice to us and the food was outstanding. The best part is that food is cooked in front of your eyes in the middles of the table.

Our first experience of korean food and they did not disappoint! We asked the waitress about a few dishes as we were unsure of what they were and she was very friendly and helpful. We ordered a couple of dishes from the grill section: prawns and the pork which the waitress cooked in front of us on the grill in... More

We chose the barbeque and it was fun. The waiting staff were jolly and very helpful. The herby saki was very different, worth trying. The food seemed authentic, although we have never been to Korea, tastier than Chinese. All in all a good experience and we will visit again.

Love this place; absolute fav when I'm down Bournemouth. Small, can get a bit packed & looks like chaos - ITS NOT. The team/family are always friendly, you are in no rush to leave. Food is to die for, cooked in front of you. Good drinks selection- traditional to a point. Definitely recommend

As I eat alone I can't justify the grill but have watched enviously as parties of people really enjoy that experience. Good soju well worth trying if you haven't... More

Had a dinner here. Food is good, but payment is dodgy. You get a discount if not using card to pay, so we opted for cash. After we paid the staff never came back with our change. It is a matter of principle not about the actual money. So if you go make sure you chase them up about this... More

I was invited to try Korean food by a very old friend and met him and his 2 lovely half Korean young daughters. John offered to order the food and so we started with kimchi and then had the grill where a waitress helps cook the food. We had 2 different cuts of pork and some beef. These meats are... More

Fast service Friendly staff Great ambience Food was fantastic. Id recommend trying the spicy chicken bulgogi if your exposure to korean food is new. Youll find the food was worth trying. However this place is always full so come early if you want a table.
