Visited few years ago and found it quite unfavourable in terms of price/quality ratio. I wanted to test it again and thus reserved a table for two. I showed up in time and was asked to wait despite a free table. Another couple, who had arrived after me, was instead served and offered to seat. I politely complained with the... More

I came in person 10 day in advance to book a table for a special dinner with my husband. I arrive in time and the table was not ready. Moreover, while we patiently wait for the table to be ready, another couple arrives and take our table. I ask explanations to the owner and they do not even understand where... More

This should simply rated the best restaurant in the world. Their meat tartar is just delicious with a mix of Asian flavours. The vegetarian ravioli and vegetable sushi a must try. Must try.

Whilst the service was friendly and fast it was unfortunately not good! Brought a dish we had not ordered and the waitress did not admit her mistake but finally took her fantasy order away. When the food arrived iy was edible but thats about it, very little flavor and poor seasoning. This is the worst korean restaurant I've been to.... More

Recently this restaurant celebrated its 10th birthday. My three children love their vegetarian ravioli and I love their vegeterian sushi. The place is always packed with Koreans very good sign. The owner is lovely. The trainees working there are not fluent in French but all speak English. My favourite Lausanne restaurant.

Had both lunch and dinner there and service is extremely bad on both occasions. Don't go if you are in a hurry. very very slow service! Food is nice, Korean bbq and bibimbap are great. The soups are also nice. They have great tea but mega expensive. Smells very bad inside of food, so don't go anywhere after that. Also,... More

A long-time kimchi consumer, I was delighted to discover this place, especially since in Lausanne you can't find fresh kimchi in the Asian supermarkets (if you know the spot, tell me!). Service was a bit slow but the food was fantastic. Definitely will be back. A pleasant surprise was the homemade icecream, green tea flavour is absolutely fantastic. Overall, recommend!

It was the first time i ate Korean food. It was love at first sight. I loved their beouf tartre and their Korean like vegetable 'sushis'. My friend who lived in Korea told me it serves better food than Korean restaurants in Korea itself.
