Lunch was great big mama

My wife and daughter suggested this place today. The food is tasty and no MSG. Come early if you didn't make reservations.

Encountered lousy service for dinner just now. A rude big fat waitress by the name of Doris demanded us, the customers to put our bags on their dirty floor. Our table were only for 2 pax and we were not given any extra chairs or area to put our bags. The atmosphere was average. The food were just so so but such lousy customer service deserve nothing other than a lousy rating. Hope such lousy business will close down and not tarnish the beauty of authentic Korean cuisine.

the service is atrocious and horrible. we initially booked for 9 pax and eventually only 6 pax turned up because of last minute change of plans. Called to tell them half hour before reservation. When we arrived, we got reprimanded badly. When we explained our situation was due to unforeseen circumstances, they continued nagging and reprimanding us. Eventually, we were so unhappy that we threatened not to eat there. Their attitude was nonchalant and they turned us away. They blatantly told us to leave. 

Seriously, for the prices there I would expect better service. It is a typical restaurant and I would prefer paying more for more expensive restaurants with staff who treat us with respect. The so called manager was the worse. The staff is too stuck up and arrogant.

definitely will not introduce this place to my friends to save them the agony. It was a horrible experience.

Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.

Bingsu ice shavings, sweet rice cakes and toasts invade the cafes here. Not typically offered in traditional Korean meals, desserts are served only during special occasions as refreshments, but in Singapore, the tables are turned

Have fun with food as foreplay, and these items are easily bought at supermarkets. Just be mindful of allergies (gas and rashes are no fun) and be prepared to sacrifice the sheets
