A Korean Affair

The environment of the restaurant reminds me of some small traditional restaurants in korea. The articles pinned out side did brought up my expectation of the restaurant a little more.

The service is not the best i have experienced, some waitress were good and some just want to get the job done. We were 1st served with a badly broken cast iron, my table felt that the broken BBQ iron plate seems unhygienic to BBQ meat on it and requested to change. 1 waitress replied "its okay" but its not okay for our table and we had to insist on changing it.

Food wise personally felt that there are better korean restaurants out there that has better tasting marinates, fresher meat and thicker richer ginseng chicken soup.

It is definitely a value for the price we paid per head at around $35 per pax.

The restaurant is quite value for money and we only spent about $40 per person and was really full at the end of the meal. Couldn't finish the hotpot and even the panchan. However, I thought better Korean restaurants could be found in the area of Tanjong Pagar which seems to be like a 'little korea' as more and more Korean restaurants are emerging in that area.

Hyangtogol Korean Restaurant @ Amara Hotel is the best Korean BBQ I've ever tried. The waitresses will help you cook the meat at your table. The taste and texture is perfect. Hyangtogol Korean Restaurant @ RWS is the worst Korean BBQ I've ever tried. The meat was overcooked. The cooked food was cold. Since this review is under the Tanjong Pagar Road (i.e. Amara Hotel) I would give it a 5 star. It's sad as the one at RWS spoiled the reputation of Hyangtogol.

I went with 2 other friends using the Groupon Voucher. It claim that it's Korean BBQ, and it turns out to be BBQ done by the restaurant serve in pathetic pieces to u. We were shocked that the supposedly succulent pork belly turns out to be dried and tough to chew. 
The only decent food were the chicken wings and watermelon.
This dinner visit totally dampen whatever mood we have for the rest of the day
