While Korean food may not be on your radar, it totally should be. If you love big, bold flavours, an abundance of free side-dishes and are all about spice then you’re going to fall in love with Korean cuisine. If you’re one of the lucky ones who have already discovered the deliciousness that is Korean food (yes, there is more than just KBBQ, people!) then you’re going to love these places; they’re the best of the best Korean food Brisbane has to offer.

Maru Korean BBQ | CBD

Maru Korean BBQ covers all your Korean bases. With a huge option of BBQ options on offer, page and pages of bibimbap, a whole suite of soups and a bar stocked full of Korean drink offerings, we’re pretty smitten. We love their KFC (Korean Fried Chicken) options too. The kimchi pancake, while a classic, is a goodie here and defs worth a try. Maru is great for groups, so there’s an actual excuse to order everything off the menu. But, isn’t there always?

Seoul Bistro | Sunnybank

Seoul Bistro in Sunnybank is absolutely killing it in the KFC game. Five different options await, and you can chow down on all of them to your hearts content with their buffet option. $22 for all you can eat Korean fried chicken? We’re also slightly obsessed with their not so traditional kimchi chips. That’s homemade chips topped with pork, kimchi and mayo. Their bulgogi stew should also be on your must try list.

Madtong San | Sunnybank

Madtong San should definitely be on your list if you want to try some of Brisbane’s best bimbimbap and Korean. You’ll probably need to line up for a table if you visit these guys at their peak, but it’s worth it. Their bimbimbap menu includes the classics and some more creative options, like their tuna sashimi.

Hong Depot | West End

Hong Depot, in West End, do Korean food right. If you’re looking for the perfect introduction to Korean food, this is it! Hong Depot is great for Korean BBQ, with less adventurous options for first timers too. Plus, all of the side dishes!

Tobaki | Sunnybank

Tobaki is another great option for all you can eat Korean food, and snacks to accompany a class of soju or two! Plus, with an authentic charcoal grill you get a bonus burst of flavour that a gas or electric BBQ just doesn’t deliver! If you’re looking for a hefty Korean feast, Tobaki is the spot for you!

Sunny Seoul | Sunnybank

Sunny Seoul is one of our fave spots for a KBBQ, endless side dishes and all the Korean deliciousness. Their BBQ offerings include heaps of fresh meat and a few more side dishes than most other spots dish out, which is always great. Plus, there’s two kinds of kimchi, which is just the best. You best book a table though, this place gets crazy busy!
