Description: 8 Korean BBQ, located at #04-20 of Shaw Centre, offers a selection of tantalising premium BBQ meats in a sleek industrial chic setting. E!GHT is named after its eponymous 8 Colours Set, which features thick, scrumptious slices of Mangalitza pork belly in an array of flavours. For the beef aficionado, we have a choice of Argentinian Grass Fed, USDA Prime and Japanese Wagyu, which is famed for its melt-in-your-mouth texture. With a well-trained team at the full-service BBQ Korean restaurant, diners can simply sit back, enjoy their favourite drink and conversation whilst the food is expertly prepared for them at their table.

This place is famous for their eigh colours pork. It simply means pork belly marinated in different flavours. Ask the service staff for recommendations and they will be Glad to do so. Menu is not really very extensive but good enough for your usual korean fare. The staff will do all the bbq and your part is to wait and eat! Love the food, will be back again!

Restaurant was over half full. Staff was friendly. Promoted the pork set when taking our orders. ( just 2 pax) As we are not great fans of pork, we ordered the short ribs ( 200g), soy chicken and a pancake to share. Did not start right, the complimentary side dish ( sprouts) had gone totally off! We told them and they promptly replaced with a new serve. Staff returned constantly to see if we wanted more of the side dishes. ( The pancake was as good as what I have tasted elsewhere)

The short ribs was definitely less than promised 200g. In our opinion, no more than 150g ( 8 or 10 small and thin slices) When I asked if the serve was indeed 200g, staff evaded the question, not once but twice! Last came the soy chicken, which was simply too sweet to eat.

The total bill including a rice wine was over S$120. I like to think beef and chicken was not their speciality. But overall I tasted much better Korean choices at 20% cheaper. Unlikely to return.

Remember to make a reservation before you go because they don’t fancy walk-ins.
This has one of the best BBQ experiences.

What was awesome about this place in terms of food was:
1. the sides were great - not your standard flimsy sides that have been left out for far too Long
2. The BBQ pork belly was tender and not over done!

Service was TOP too! I’m definitely coming back for more!

Standard environment with average Korean fare. Staff were competent but not extravagant. Worth a try but not unlikely for repeat visits.

the food was good with generous portions. The ventilation could be improved though as we still smell like walking bbq after dinner.
