Korean BBQ

Manbok is part of the growth of Korean culture in Singapore. Run by a Korean family, be prepared to do lots of sign language as the bulk of the wait staff do not speak English.

A simple eatery, the place serves relatively good Korean fare at fair value.

I started with the Haemul Jeon ($22), s beef stoup that was warm and hearty and did well to open up the palette.

I then tried the Yukgae Jang ($20), which is the Korean seafood pancake. It was quite tasty and they were generous on the ingredients.

From the BBQ menu I tried the Deung Sim ($38), which is a premium beef rib eye. The meat was quite tasty and a little searing was good enough.

With such a heavy meal, I decided to forgo on desserts. While the restaurant does have an air suction to take out most of the bbq smell, still be prepared to leave with some remnants of the after-smell on your clothes.

Bad service and bad food

We walked in not many customers. Both waitress and waiter have black faces on them. They don't bother to show us our places too. We need to ask if we could sit down. 
Thw army stew does not taste authentic. The soup base taste more like tomato sauce. 
Will not recommend anybody to come here.

Poor hygiene

Had dinner here with my husband last Saturday. Well at least we tried to. We left about 10 minutes after the food was served. Reason being: 1. We were seated diagonally opposite the toilet. There was no proper partition to the toilets and as the toilet door was kept opened all the time, we lost

Intense competition on this street

No idea what motivates a person to set up a Korean restaurant in a street full of them. This one replaced Xin Tao Yuan, which I never went to, but had bad reviews.

They have a great set lunch menu, all hovering around the $9 range and comes with the full compliment of Korean side dishes. I ordered
