A warm welcome and fabulous food made for a great night! We loved the shared pan fried dumplings and the noodle hot pot was flavourful with generous amounts of meat, noodles and side dishes. Try the plum tea...delicious! We will be back and will definitely recommend them to others!

Every foodie should go to this restaurant. Massive range of korean food which has it own identity and presentation. If you like a bit of spice, just tell the waiters how much and you will not be disappointed - they can blast you to the moon with this. Great place for a change with decor and great food.

The food was absolutely delicious and we will most definitely be going back.
The meals were real value for money even if you pay full price.
Service was quick and waitress was helpful when ordering.
We had the ox tail soup which my husband throughly enjoy and I had a ramen that was full bodied and just yum yum yum.
A must try .

Went with a brunch of friends, first time at this restaurant. The food was good, most of us had the stir fried chicken which was hot & delicious. Has a good vibe throughout the restaurant. Staff were friendly, overall a good experience.

Excellent range of korean dishes and service was good! Loved the free side dishes, they were free so was the rice. the grilled BBQ squid and pork belly was our favourite, will definitely come back again!

5 stars for The station Korean restaurant. Food was fresh and came in a good portion with plenty of side dishes. Every staff was very helpful and polite, helping us to choose meals since we never had Korean BBQ before. BBQ was freshly cooked by staff at our table. Carpark is plenty. Highly Recommended!!!

This was my first time having Korean food and this is a traditional Korean restaurant. The staff were very helpful answering questions about the foods helping me tp decide on my dish. We were not disappointed with our choice of Korean BBQ meats that were cooked on the BBQ at the table. Great spot ,friendly, delicious food.

We went there for my son's birthday as we love Korean food and read good reviews. The restaurant looks a little shabbier inside and out than on the few photos I had seen. Service was friendly enough and food was served quickly. We liked the dumplings and pancake but were less impressed with the squid and noodles both of which tasted not fully cooked. The vegetables consisted mainly of onions and some carrot, as vegetarian I would have liked a little more variety. Portions were rather large and prices reasonable. Ok place to go if you're hungry and on a budget.

Huge meals for such a great price (even as full price I would happily pay)! Very tasty, great value and great service. Have been here before and I will continue to go :)

We've got the Korean BBQ which didn't match our expectation, we choose sirloin and lamb, the lamb was just one piece and very reasonable. However, the service was goods, I would recommend try another dish instead of bbq.

Best Korean food I have had since visiting South Korea. Both the Savory Korean pancake with seafood & marinated duck were simply delicious. The deep fired squid was cooked to perfection. Excellent & attentive customer service. Will be definitely going back to try the rest of the menu.

Food was average. Sat outside in their patio bit and spent the whole meal batting away heaps of flies which was a bummer but to be expected sitting outside. Would have been nice if they had some sort of fly repellent or zapper. Service was great. The man was lovely and even gave us extra food for free which was a lovely gesture. Food was good price though. Don’t think we will be coming back as didn’t think the food was that great and my husband was concerned on the hygiene standards.

The food on ala carte menu were good (kimchi pancakes and kimchi stew) but the korean bbq was disappointing. Waiters didnt seem happy with our orders and service was not attentive. Rooms for improvement and very grateful that we visited with first table offer.
