Was at the restaurant last night with my family, total 5 pax. Food was O.K but one can easily find similar standard of Korean food elsewhere. Ginseng Porridge is one of the item in the buffet. We had one small bowl shared by 5 pax because the pot is always empty. The restaurant embience is no good. It's stuffy, ventilation is not good enough. Too many tables in the restaurant and the place is congested. Floor is so oily I almost fell a few times. Don't think it is suitable for elderly people. If you are a elderly person or persons with walking difficulties, be forewarned, the place is not 'suitable for you'.
As for the services, the general staff was helpful, going around clearing empty plates and cleaning the grills but I cannot say the same for one person, the woman boss. I think she is the owner of the restaurant, bespectacled, short hair, skinny person. She came to our table once to turn down our grill while we are still eating without even asking if we want her to do that. She simply tell us " turn it on again if you want to cook". She walks off after that. I thought it is a Korean BBQ and are we supposed to turn the grill on and off and on again to have dinner? The next time she came to our table was to simply said "somebody is waiting for this table". We got the hint. We were asked to leave. Never in my lifetime ever patronised a restaurant, whether in Singapore or overseas was asked to leave. This is my first time. We haven't even eaten our dessert yet.
My conclusion is, you can find better authentic Korean BBQ elsewhere with similar if not better standard of food, better embience, better environment, safer place and last if not least, better services. Go to Novena Sq 2 where you can find all these authentic Korean restaurants. Their prices are not expensive too. Oh yes, you can forget about driving to Goki Day. You can get heated up faster than getting the heat from the BBQ grill just by finding a parking space. Last night I parked far away and takes 10 mins to walk to the restaurant.
