I seldom give a bad review to a restaurant unless it is necessary. We (as a family with children) went in around early evening to avoid some peak time crowd to have some nice korean dinner but to our surprise the chef/owner was rude and kind of reluctant to serve us because we are pushing a baby? and also a...

I've dined here a few times with friends and family assuring them " it doesn't look like much from outside and the decor but the food is great." Really affordable and the hot iron bowls are delicious with lots of options ( I've had beef, chicken and tofu). cheap drinks, too! Definitely worth a try.

First time visit passing through New Plymouth. Host friendly and helpful. Mixed platter of entrees a good was to sample a variety of things. Had a sizzling plate of pork belly and a hot bowl of beef and rice with a side of kimchee. All medium spiced and tasty. Wine list average. Would definitely return.

Went to this place after recommendation from work colleague, to be honest for the price you can get much better taste and amount elsewhere, our deep fried goods were under cooked edible but oily, and the main was near on $20 and was not very big at all, but it was nice to taste something different, service lovely, and nice...

Had item 131 tonight Spicy Jelly Tofu. Taste wise, a great disappointment. Bland and diluted, unlike other Korean restaurants I've been to around the country. Korean restaurants usually serve side dishes, none here. Taste wise 1/5. Ambience was pleasant. Overall 2/5.

My husband and I have dined here 3 times a year on average, over the past 5 years. We've never been disappointed with the reasonably priced meals and service.

Just been to De Coree with friends and such a good place for a meal out. It is not expensive and very tasty Korean food that is extremely freshly presented. I particularly like Bibimbap but had never had a seafood one and this was very yummy. The chicken for starter was delicious. The decor is a bti dated but definitley... More
