Critic's review

Diane de Beer

They have moved into new premises, a house, which has been cleverly divided into a main dining room with several private rooms and on sunny days, an outside area around the pool, perfect for Pretoria summer weather. With a husband and wife team, he is the maître ‘d while she is the chef, together they represent Korean cuisine superbly. Their staff have been around from the beginning, know the ropes and are keen to keep diners comfortable and smiling.

Food If you’re not familiar with Korean food, ask the owner or your waiter who is well informed to guide you through the meal. Once you discover the secret, it’s easy and the variety and choices are exciting as you will make discoveries time and again. A suggestion is to start with a sample of their many different pancakes; with grated potato; calamari, shrimp and spring onion; with traditional kimchi and vegetables; hake and spring onion; or various mushrooms and spring onion. Those are just the pancakes, but that’s a start. For mains, one of their bulgogi options; or the melt-in-the-mouth Pork Samgyipsal - pulled pork belly with fresh vegetables some of which serve as a wrap with different kimchi options like veg, nuts or anchovy which means that every bite is your own combination. That is the most important thing about Korean cuisine. You’re the master of what and how it is digested. Selections are placed before you and these are many, but then you assemble the individual bites usually with soup alongside or the beautiful fish broth which is cooking the beef in the hotpot. The tastes are yours to determine. They also have separate set menus which will making starting out an adventure. Dessert isn’t huge in Korean culture, but they often serve fresh fruit or one of their dough pancakes with brown sugar syrup filling and ice cream is a treat. It’s good to go in a group and there will be Korean diners aplenty to help with advice.

Drink
It’s a well-planned list, well priced, with enough choice to please.

Service
The staff have been around for many years and are well versed in the menu. They are well informed about the food, the way it is prepared and which options to select.

Ambience
It’s a house and the furnishings are kept simple with the accent on dining and the food served. There are many options of where and when to dine which will depend on your needs. On a first visit, the general dining area is good to go with mainly Korean diners which speaks volumes about the food.
Best for their warm reception and pleasant atmosphere with a menu that is designed to satisfy those who know but also those who are less familiar with Korean cuisine.

Best for...
An introduction to Korean cuisine.
