We didn't make a reservation, but we were willing to wait for 45 min to get a table for three. After 45 min we were still waiting so we asked when the table will be free since we saw several table weres free. Apparently they forgot about us and asked us to wait for another while. After 10 min more we finally got seated. No sweat we thought, we could finally order our dishes. The seafood pancake was a bit off than the usual ones, but it still tasted good, only we couldn't find any seafood in it despite it was supposed to a seafood pancake. I kept wondering whether they didn't make a mistake. Since another dish wasn't also wrong. We ordered thinly sliced beef for the BBQ, but instead we received the thick beef slices.
But we didn't want to ruin our dinner so we kept quite about it and decided just to enjoy our meal. The other meats for the BBQ have also arrived so the waiter started to BBQ these for us. We have already noticed from the previous sliced beef that just a split second they would turn the meat over, since it was only beef than it was still okay. But the other meats as pork and chicken they would do the same. Even though everyone knows that these have to be well done. After seeing that these meat are not well done. The chicken was still raw and the pork was still bloody. We turned on the heater again to grill them a bit longer. Not a minute longer, even though seeing us grilling them again, the waiter came back and turn off the heater again.
It was like they couldn't care less that the meat weren't well done, whether it was pork of chicken. It felt like they were rushing us to finish all the dishes as we set down, because more people came in to wait for a table.
Overall the service was very poor and the service fee was standard in the charging bill. The prices are also higher compared to other Korean restaurants.
Disappointing was also the absence of small dishes which were usually provided at the beginning, like little bowl of kimchi, sour cucumber, etc.
Even though the restaurant survived since 1990, it would properly be, because it was better located than the other Korean restaurants. If you really want to eat good Korean food, you can do much better at Arang (9 Golden Square, not much further away than Myung Ga) and the prices are much more faire.
And if you want to eat just Bibimbap then you can go to Bi Bim Bap (Soho) at Greek street.
