Food and service was excellent. Seafood pancake was crispy and delicious. Quality of the meat was excellent and fresh. The restaurant itself has modern decor, is spacious and has large comfortable seats. All in all a fabulous night. We'll be back!

I have been craving Korean BBQ so having a discount on the total bill was a bonus.

The staff were lovely and gave recommendations when we needed. We ordered the First Time BBQ set and kimchi fried rice (which is my favourite).

Definitely would come back again.

Service was great and food came quickly. We want to come back and try the delicious looking hotpots that we saw others ordering.

KorBQ was our first time having Korean BBQ and the staff where super helpful teaching us the process. The food was awesome. We had a banquet for 2 with some extra veggies and feed the 3 of us perfectly!

- dined at KorBQ on

The booking process was simple. When we went to the restaurant our table was already prepared and waiting for us. The food and service at KorBQ were excellent. We will surely tell our friends about this good experience.

We love this place! Best food ever

- dined at KorBQ on

From start to finish, the team was very helpful! The staff was very accommodating with our booking by increasing the number of diners half an hour before the booking time. Not only that, the team was also helping us with the storage of our birthday cake with no extra cost.

The dining experience was absolutely fabulous with yummy Korean fried chicken and Korean BBQ! We ordered the BBQ package for 4 people with different variety of meats, and my favourite was the Korean Spicy Chicken!

We could not have asked for better service nor food quality from KorBQ! Highly recommended for a group dining! We will be back next time! :)

Loved dining at KORBQ - the food is amazing and they have a great atmosphere as well. They were unfortunately running low on some drinks and forgot our sides (kimchi etc) at the beginning of our meal. However staff were quick to fix any mistakes and very attentive.

Would recommend the chilli fried chicken, bibimbap and tongue for BBQ.

Overall a great experience!

The quality of food is good, recommending pork belly and premium beef tongue. Sesame leaves are very fresh.Fried chicken is crispy and all over sauces.Overall it’s a nice and good value dining experience. Quick service

So happy with our first experience at KorBQ!
I have to admit that I was a little worried as a first time First Table user that we might be 'less welcome' than full paying guests. Not the case at all! The staff were so friendly and welcoming. The service was fast, the food was wonderful and a lot of fun to eat.
Will definitely come back again!

Had an amazing dinner with friends, we ordered the set menu and could not fault anything. We loved the quality of the meat for the kbbq, the oxtail soup was also outstanding but The creamy fried chicken has to be the best in Canberra. Can’t recommend this place enough.

We were seated while the restaurant was not busy. The staff then gave us their undivided attention, this was lovely as we had quite a few questions. They were lovely, even helping with some suggestions. The food was phenomenal, with the overall experience being one that I will definitely do again with a larger group. Our kimchi and seasonings were constantly replenished. Overall, great

We left rolling out of the joint!
Our waiter was amazing and funny. While ordering he told us that he thought it was too much food for two people-he was right!!
It was a good thing we took one item off because we were bursting at the seams. The food was too good not to keep eating!!

We dined at Korbq on Sunday night and it was fantastic! None of us have had Korean food before and had no idea how it all worked but the food was amazing and the service was great! Staff were very friendly and informative with all the dishes and how to use the bbq. We ordered the big banquet that allowed us to try a variety of dishes, the battered chicken and wasabi mustard sauce were so good and it was the best fried rice we have ever tasted. Lovely atmosphere in the restaurant too. Will definitely be back - thank you for a great night!

- dined at KorBQ on

KorBQ's food was not only amazing, but so was their service and the ambience of the place. If you've never done korean bbq before, or unsure about what the meals are, their friendly staff are always more than willing to help as well as explaining how it all works. KorBQ is definitely worth a visit and is located in an easy area to get to. I will definitely be back as the food was super delicious!

- dined at KorBQ on

From the minute we walked in the door it was a wonderful experience. Food was perfectly presented and just delicious, staff were attentive, happy, helpful and a real pleasure to interact with. A simply fantastic night.

The food was fresh and delicious and the staff were very helpful. This restaurant has a lovely relaxed atmosphere and is a great spot to eat out with friends during the cold Canberra winter. The basket of hot glowing coals at our table made it so warm and cosy. A really lovely evening.

The chef was not afraid to allow the food to speak for itself, simple, good quality and full of flavour not dripping in dressings or additives.
This was our first experience at a Korean BBQ, the staff were helpful, patient and guides us through the process. We will be back again

My husband and I really enjoyed our First Table dining experience at KorBQ. The staff were very attentive, and the food was delish! That chicken skin crackling is The Best. We liked the atmosphere and decor of the place too (although the music is a tad loud). We will definitely be back :)

This was our family’s first time using first table and our first time trying Korean bbq! What a fantastic experience! The service was so helpful and observant. They talked us through the menu and were so kind to our kids. The food was great too - the kids especially enjoyed the fried chicken

Max Thomas

A very nice fit out, and the food was great! Had a range of items including the Kimchi pancakes and crispy octopus for entree, then followed by some BBQ eye fillet (which was really nice) and cripsy soy chicken for main. To top it off, they had Clonakilla Shiraz by the glass, which is our favourite wine. Definitely recommend and will be coming back!

Great Korean restaurant for soups, bimbimbab, hotpots and BBQ. Service was prompt and courteous, and food was delivered in good time given the 90 min restriction for first table offer. The seafood pancakes entree are my personal recommendation. First Table booking works well, had to put in a reminder for the discount at payment though.

Food was fantastic. Korean Chilli fried chicken was top-class, and this is coming from a fried/junk food junkie who has had good KFC (Korean Fried Chicken) in South Korea itself! The Mayo chicken was fantastic too, with lots of chicken with yummy seasoning. The hotpot Cheese bibimbap was ok. Just remember to stir it up (which we forgot initially!) before serving. The bulgogi and mushroom hot pot was quite tasty, although the beef wasn't the best. Soup was tasty and the portion was massive.

Service was ok. There were 2 tables with customers and there were 2-3 waiters at the time but we had to get our own extra utensils and bowls and drinks when we tried several times to get their attention. They seemed to be busy chatting or doing other stuff. It didn't really bother us as it wasn't too much trouble but I don't think everyone else would be very happy with that. Very quick to take our orders and food came in a timely manner though!
