We’re quite partial to DIY dining—it's the fun part of cooking and there are no dishes to contend with at the end—and for us, the most fun way to DIY dine is at a Korean BBQ.

Because we’re turning 10, we’re featuring your top 10 recommendations, and this week we’re on the hunt for the best Korean BBQ joints in Perth. Here are the spots that made the list.

Marubang Korean BBQ 

Northbridge

The Korean BBQ at Marubang was rated highly by you, and with its thick cuts of meat, we can see why. Cecil says it “has an amazing list of Wagyu cuts along with weekend specials” while Alex thinks Marubang has “the best quality meat selection in Australia, and is reasonably priced.” With its spacious interiors and high-quality ingredients, this is one you definitely have to tick off your foodie list. 

Palsaik Namoo

Perth CBD

Another favourite pick is Palsaik Namoo in the city (not to be confused with Palsaik in Northbridge). Spread out over two levels, this is an equally worthy Korean BBQ spot you need to try. Their set menus are great value and come with all the delish sides and condiments you need to top off your barbecued goods. And if you’re a fan of kimchi, definitely order the kimchi soup here—it's one of the best!

Palsaik

Northbridge

Palsaik will keep your Korean BBQ cravings sorted when you’re out and about in Northbridge. You told us you love it for its delicious meat and cheerful energy, and we agree that it’s an ideal spot to grill and chill with friends. There are also plenty of Korean deep-fried chicken dishes with an array of sauces if you’re keen to dig into a large plate of crispy chicken. 

K Town

Northbridge

Follow the smoke down to K Town, grab a seat in the cosy gravel courtyard and prepare for a full-on Korean feast. K Town dishes up an all-you-can-eat barbecue set menu so you can keep the meat coming and grill going until you can't possibly fit any more in. Sarah loves K Town for its “great atmosphere and great food”, and we agree that it’s up there with the best Korean BBQ in Perth. 

Tong 86

Perth

You've probably walked past Tong 86 plenty of times, but this is your sign to go in and give this Korean BBQ joint a go. Make sure you dip your BBQ meats in the peppery peanut oil dressing and wrap them up in a lettuce leaf. Yum.

Arirang Korean BBQ

Perth CBD, Cannington And Karrinyup

Arirang Korean Barbecue has been around since 1999, and after successful ventures in the CBD and Cannington, they’ve set up shop in the new Karrinyup Shopping Centre. Go for one of the Korean BBQ Sets, which serves two people and also which comes with kimchi, miso soups and other sides. There are also Korean liquors such as Soju and cocktails if you’re feeling so inclined. 

Restaurant Gangnam

Karawara And Carousel

There is a lot to love at Restaurant Gangnam, especially their Korean BBQ. If you're new to the K-BBQ scene this is the perfect spot to check out, as the menu is full of quality meats that you already know and love. You can go for the marinated or non marinated BBQ combo, depending on your love of spice, and dig into spicy scotch fillet, pork belly, Wagyu and chicken. If you can fit in another bite, add a side of their Korean Fried Chicken too. 

SURA 

Northbridge

If you love meat, and all kind of meat at that, SURA has a long list of meaty options for you to grill up that'll hit just the spot. But DIY Korean BBQ aside, there are also some amazing made-to-order dishes that'll go down a treat—why not give one of their spicy Hot Pot dishes a try?

Bulgogi BBQ Restaurant

Perth 

Towards the eastern end of Hay Street is Bulgogi, a spacious restaurant with long wooden tables, so your group can easily gather around the inbuilt grills and feast the night away. You noted the sides are delicious, complimenting the large servings of beef, pork, duck and chicken on offer. 

SSAM Korean Cuisine & BBQ Restaurant

Victoria Park

One of the more modern Korean BBQ restaurants, SSAM's menu offers up the goods, with loads of varieties of chicken, pork and beef ready for sizzling. They're also one of the few Korean BBQ places in Perth offering a variety of veggies, great for any of your vego friends (just remember to stick to your side of the hot plate).
