Description: Hancham Korean BBQ Restaurant at Mody Road’s Empire Centre offers the quintessential Korean barbecue experience, with an eye for tradition. Food here is cooked over a blazing charcoal grill, for one, and the menu is full of traditional flourishes, like Kimchi Jigae served up in a heated stone bowl to keep it toasty all night long. The top-grade meats are worth the trip alone.

This is an authentic Korean barbecue joint at a sleepy corner of Tsim Sha Tsui. Hancham has an extensive menu of Korean delicacies with many options. Ventilation is good. Food quality is also pretty nice. Service, however, is a huge let down. The place is very understaffed and staff does not appear on time to handle the barbecue. The meat is burnt at the end. As price is far from cheap, we expected way more on the overall experience.

Real good place for some excellent beef. The soup itself is so substantial, it could be a meal itself.

Service is quite good as staff run about. Be sure to book unless you intend to eat after 8:30.

Very very fine and premium ingredients
The Korean shop manager was very welcoming and friendly - he introduces different dishes, demonstrates the Korean way of cooking meat on a grill, etc. to every table of customers.
Other staff members also take care of you by having your grill changed from time to time to prevent charring.

One of the must-try and must-recommend Korean BBQ restaurants in HK! Be sure to book a table in advance to guarantee a seat!

We ordered a "Pork & beef set for two ($580)" which tasted soooo good.

First, Korean side dishes (반찬) are served. A variety of ban-chan - kimchi, cabbage, shredded radish, bean sprouts, and even baked egg and salad!

The sauces provided include a sauce with wasabi, Korean soybean paste, sesame oil with sea salt and onion sauce.

When eating the grilled meat, you could taste the meat directly without adding any seasonings, you could also dip it in different sauces, add in various side dishes, garlic slices, etc. and wrap it up with lettuce .

돼지 고기 & 소고기 구이 세트 ◁
The set includes pork belly, pork shoulder and marinated beef rib (벌집 삼겹살 / 목살 / 소 양념걸비), as well as a salad, stew and dessert.

The beef rib was soooo succulent and the pork was heavenly too.
