This place never gets old! I ordered california roll and ebi tempura roll and it was great! I suggest to try this restaurant at shangri-la mall's new wing.

So its almost 2 years since we've been here leaving them with one star. It's also been awhile since my last review. Thank you Looloo for finally making an android app (probably been awhile too).

The cheapskate in us got lured with their 350 pesos eat all you can meat! Voila! Same experience, but with an improvement (because of the quantity and price). Meat and rice were not warm enough. The pork and chicken were dry! My initial feeling was: Did they just reheat our food?

Anyways, i still think you get what you pay for. I'd probably choose this over Max's chicken all you can since you won't have to wait in line.

One of the best California rolls I have tasted. Generous amount of kani fillings. :)

Ordered the thinly-sliced grilled pork served with lettuce (forgot what it's called) and the Galbi Jjim. The pork was already marinated, tasted good but it was tough. The beef in the Galbi Jjim, however, was the exact opposite. My chopsticks just touched it and it fell off the bone. Tastes really good too. I thought it would be spicy but it was just sweet.

I think I'm sick. I'm suffering from an ooh-a-new-restaurant-we-have-to-eat-there-NOW disease and I think I have reached stage 4.

Lately, I haven't been going on hardcore food trips where I have to stop by 4 restaurants in one day. (Awww T3, I miss those days!) But one thing is for sure, if there's a new restaurant in Shangri-La or Megamall, I have to go there. True enough, when Woo Galbi opened, I begged my mom and sister that we hold one of our Saturdate lunches at the new Korean restaurant. And we did.

We arrived a bit past 1 p.m. as my sister came from school and I was trying to lead a healthier lifestyle by going to the gym for circuit training and studio for yoga. (Yeah~ <3)

The place wasn't packed so we easily got a table. I got slightly confused as there were Japanese dishes on the menu too such as tempura and sashimi. While reading the menu, the only thing in my mind was, "hey, the food here is pretty pricey" upon seeing the price of the bibimbap. PHP450 for a bowl?! Well, worth it, I guess.

It took us 10 minutes or so to decide on what to order and finally, we ordered a solo serving of Cucumber Prawn Salad (PHP176), Japchae (PHP298), Grilled Boneless Shortribs Bulgogi (PHP595) and Shrimp Tempura (PHP232 for three pieces and PHP350 for 5 pieces).

While waiting, we feasted on the side dishes which I find okay. The serving though wasn't very generous.

First to arrive was the salad. I must admit, it was pretty tasty! The dressing was superb. Slightly tangy and sweet. It somehow reminded me of the dressing Vietnamese restaurants serve. The greens were crisp and fresh though there were only two prawns included. I guess if I upsize it'll be four or more.

The bulgogi was a bit bland but dipping it in the sauce made it savory. I just used the sweet dip (forgot the name but it's the one in the middle sandwiched by the yellow dip and red paste). I guess I was supposed to wrap it in lettuce but I prefer eating it with rice. (Then again, I could also opt to wrap the rice and bulgogi in lettuce but... nah!)

My mom and I were not able to try the tempura. But seeing how my sister ate it, it must taste like the usual tempura.

When the japchae arrived, we were all stuffed but as troopers, we tried a bit of the heavy glass noodle dish. It was not as oily as the other japchae I tried before but surprisingly, this seemed to be heavier than the ones I've tried.

Overall, the food was pretty okay. I love the salad but the rest seem the usual. I'd go back to try the other salads and perhaps an order of salmon sashimi.

I love trying new restaurants in town, and this korean restaurant at shangri-la mall is a must try! Dishes featured are: galbi jjim (beef stew), japchae, bulgogi shortribs, bibimbap, woo galbi roll and banchan (appetizers). The taste is really good plus it's not that expensive. 500 pesos per head will already be enough. The dishes are made to order (not reheated) that's why it's fresh. Unlimited lettuce is also offered once you order any grilled items and banchan is also free (but not unlimited). Two thumbs up! 128077128077

I was here for dinner with my family on Mother's Day and it was packed, which I guess was the reason why service wasn't that good.. But that really shouldn't be an excuse. Smh

Anyway, we had the following:

Galbi Tang, clear soup with beef spareribs, is a usual for our family. It just doesn't look that appetizing and clear in the photo but I love it! And another usual would be the platter of assorted grilled meat (I'm just not so sure what that platter is called. The ebi tempura is also something worth raving about. The breading is perfect and the prawns are fresh, plus it tastes good even without the sauce. 128076

And more but I didn't get to try them anymore cause I was too full already. I did have Korean ice cream because there's always room for dessert. I got their version of pinipig with a chunk of chocolate in the middle of the popsicle. Mah fave but I still don't know what it's called hehe

Korean food is love! This meal set comes with unli lettuce and rice! Enough for us 4! The beef was a little tough though, but manageable to chew. Flavor is good!

I found this Korean Restaurant on the 6th floor of the new wing of Shangrila Plaza Mall. Food was good and reasonably priced. The SSam wraps, beef stew and the grilled platter were so delicious. Since i came with my son who doesn't like Korean food, they had tempura too. Saving grace! It's just quite difficult to find but it was all worth it. Next time you're at shangrila mall, make sure to try it!

It was again pretty reasonable. We tried to keep the bill under 700 for 3 people and we were able to do it through dwenjang chige, a soy paste soup, vegetable tempura, rice and California maki. The free side dishes helped. We left satisfied and not bloated :)

Think about it as a better alternative to Bulgogi Brothers. Although my wife doesn't think it is authentic Korean, I happened to have enjoyed it. Maybe it was because I was hungry. Still, the soup was adjusted to Pinoy tastes (it wasn't spicy) and the pork was accompanied by great side dishes that the restaurant claims are not unlimited (they limited my wife and I to one refill each). Fair enough :)

Surprisingly excellent place. Good value for money. The bibimbap was great, and did not skimp on the ingredients.

Ordered the following: Woo Galbi Roll (P588), Eel Avocado roll (P220), Bulgogi Shortribs (P595) and Bibimbap (P420). Saw an insect in the appetizer which was replaced without any apologies. The wrong bill arrived in our table and water had to be requested. Some evidences of the inept service were very clear from the beginning. Bulgogi could have been better and they replaced the avocado (from the Eel Avocado roll) with mango, which tasted alright. The WG roll was delectable and bibimbap bountiful but lacks that certain punch to make it special. Pricy, unauthentic Korean dishes and a ho-hum customer service and overrated.128078
