Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

First time trying here and pleasantly surprised! I did not expect to see how much Korean food was on the menu, and as far as I know, this is the only restaurant in Invercargill that has authentic kimchi soups and bulgogi. Now the chicken....It's a...fine line getting battered chicken cooked fully through without drying it out or overcooking the batter. In this case, we ordered 3 dishes of fried chicken and each separate dish was perfectly cooked. The wait staff was very knowledgeable about the menu and did all the right things to give us a great customer service. The portion sizes are most generous and all of us agreed it was an excellent experience. 7/7 would do again👍🏼More

This Korean - Italian fusion restaurant should be on one’s bucket list when in Invercargill. Devoured on their Shrimp Cream Risotto, Beef Bulgogi, and Garlic Fried Chicken—the best I’ve had by far — all the dishes made our taste buds smile! Also, the staff were...very friendly and accommodating, and the place is really nice and clean, too! Highly recommended!👌More

This place initially doesn’t look great as it is upstairs in a strange location but wow the food is amazing. The fried chicken is absolutely unreal. Huge portions (you don’t get wings, each piece is basically a quarter chicken) and the sauces are delicious too....We ordered far too much and had it for lunch the next day. We will definitely be back!More

The best-fried chicken of my life is there! No matter how many times I go back it is still just as good or better than the last time. Best restaurant in town in price and in food. I have been with family, large group of...friends, and for lunch and dinner. Amazing space to go with great food.More

I would say I will never try this restaurant due to a very disappointing experience. I phoned the restaurant before I doing an order online. The restaurant staff told me that I can make an delivery order after 10 mins. Then I tried as he...said, ordered the dishes, filled up all the information, paid by my credit card. Then the website page show me that my order missed! ! Then I phoned the restaurant again. A man told me that they closed due to an accident! An accident just happened 10 mins later??? Couldn't believe that. However, on the website it still shows opening! No any detail reasons and no apologize, told me maybe I can try another time! That's it. This is a services your restaurant provided to a customer?More

Family meal with 8 of us for a birthday dinner. Plenty of variety in the menu, so something for everyone. We ordered a number of dishes, from pasta, risotto and the Korean Fried Chicken, all were great and really good sizes. Also ordered dumplings and...they were great. Service was a bit slow, but ok.More

We didnt have a booking when we came in and there was 7 of us. We walked in and the first thing the the waiter said was "sh*t". We didnt book cuz we thought we can just walk in but even tho we didnt book,...the dude shouldn't have treated us that way. i know cuz i work at a resto and when theres a bunch of people, we do our best to have them seated and not tell them "sh*t" the first time they walk in. It was a very unpleasant experience as I was new in Invercargill and that's not what I have expected to be treated especially when me and my friends are just tryna eat. But the food was great, I love the chicken and the prawn pilaf. There was a very kind japanese waitress who took our photos, i guess it kinda compensated for the first waiter.More

We ordered six dishes from here for a family celebration tonight and were very impressed. Great service and friendly staff. We ordered crispy chicken which knocked KFC out of the park! Udon noodles and rice dishes were really tasty. Kids loved the pasta. Will definitely...order again.More
