“One of my favourite Korean bbq places in sg. Their cuisine is very authentic and the staff are all Korean, we had the set menu A with all beef on this time. They have other sets that have chicken and other meats. Another favourite is the steamed egg which is fluffy and soft.”

“Yummy Korean BBQ restaurant.  Good quality beef.  Side dishes are refillable upon request.  I like their flying fish roe with rice.  You mix all the ingredients into a ball shape to eat.”

“I’ve been given heads up that the queue is normally long here, so my sister and I were the first to arrive at 11:05 AM on a Saturday.  Customer service is really good and fast! Someone would do the BBQ for you. So you just wait and sit pretty. We ordered set C, and everything was delicious! The quality of the meat is great! I finally understand why my friends highly recommend this place! Check it out if you haven’t!”
