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.
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.
Went there yesterday with friends, and were so disappointed with the service. The male server (Korean) has no smile n bad attitude. We ordered quite a bit for 3 person, as expecting the service will be reasonable. When requesting to refill the sidedish, the male server face was black! Then the lady server who took our order came n told us that a particular sidedish cannot refill. We r fine with that. But later she brought tak pok ki as a side dish to us, which was FROZEN!!!! Really disappointed with this restaurant n will never ever return..
