The restaurant was empty when we arrived. The prices of the menu shocked us. A bowl of rice cost more than $2++.We ordered bulgogi ($28++) and seafood soup. The portions were not generous. No sauce for the bulgogi lettuce wrap (unlike it when you eat in Korea). Seafood soup is basic with a few small pieces of seafood in a small bowl. Kimchi are all vegetables + 1 fried fish (unlike in Korea you get crabs and squids) in little dishes.  The portions are not sufficient for 2 of us but as we like the fried fish, I asked for 2nd helping. What's good was they allowed me to have a 2nd serving of the fried fish.

For 2 pax, we spent $60. very steep. We might as well walk over to Concorde Hotel to our usual Kim Dae Mun restaurant (moved to 2nd floor) and have the very same dishes for less than $20 and in larger portions.

Service is ok and I believe most are Filippinos as they speak with the signature "yes mum".

Frankly? I won't be back. Food is mediocre but expensive. The irony is after we finish the dinner there, we walked down Killiney Road and found a new, nicely decorated Korean restaurant there!!! Looked at the menu and we moaned! Should have gone there instead alamak!

So far we have tried a few Korean restaurants in Singapore and must say, most if not all have quality of similar levels. The only difference as I see is price point. Kim Dae Mun is the cheapest as it's food court style. But it offers a quick and economical fix for me as I love bulgogi (after the first visit to Jeju). Of course, still nothing here beats the authentic Korean food I tried in Seoul and Jeju, better quality and cheaper. I wonder why. Most of them are opened by Koreans (or seem to be). Why don't they just taste the same or offer the same Kimchi and sauces as in Korea?

First try for us, after that I didn't go back, even now and then I passes by so many times.  The steamboat was alright for us, however, the side dishes weren't as good as compared.

The service is EXTREMELY BAD!!! I stood outside the restaurant for 10 minutes and no one bothered to serve and ask how many seats I needed. I stopped one of the staff and asked how long the wait will take. She said 20 minutes and walked away. All the other staff pretended not to see us.

The staff gave 2 groups of 4 who came 15 minutes later than me the seats first as they claimed it was a big table. but when i looked around the place, all seats were meant for 4. I asked why we did not get the seats and the male staff said "if you can't wait, you can leave." I am appalled with such BAD SERVICE ATTITUDE. I hope the senior management will teach the staff to at least be polite when speaking to customers. I AM NEVER GOING BACK AGAIN and this place is really not worth anyone's time and money.
