This place is so good. Cosy Irish pub meets incredible Korean food. I noticed a lot of the reviews mention that the service isn’t great- I think a lot of the servers are young, inexperienced and working on their English. But they’re all lovely and...More

Loved it. Bustling little place on St Valentine's Day. The beef bulgogi and dak galbi were just like I remember from living in South Korea. Soju cocktails were yummy! I'd definitely go back for more! Great atmosphere.

I've been here with my friends sometimes and haven't been disappointed by the food. They have authentic Korean taste with nice kimchi. I hope they will bring me more kimchi next time. I highly recommend if anyone wants to try Korean food in Dublin.

One of the best Korean food in town - but I'd advise to book in advance during the weekend as it gets full quickly !

Casual restaurant with excellent Korean food. It’s attached to a pub. We are quite familiar with Korean food and found this restaurant to be a great meal very well suited for those new to the cuisine. We had both bulgogi and bibimbap. I ordered the...More
