    Third time dining here. It’s the best food please don’t ever change. As always, got a bbq set and a bowl of chicken. The service was amazing (always is) my friend wasn’t feeling well and they gave us some to-go boxes so we could take the food. 10/10 for food and service.

    We had the bbq. Meat was frozen so cooking it was difficult and the meat burned before it was properly cooked. No assistance with cooking which is unusual in a Korean bbq restaurant.

    Had a great experience at this restaurant. Our server was Malaysian, I wish I got his name, he was really lovely and took time to explain dishes and menu items to my friend's mum that I took out to lunch - she hadn't had korean bbq in over a decade! She thoroughly enjoyed the experience. There was a light bbq set for 2, which was good value and more than enough meat for the two of us. Would go back.

    Great authentic food, good value, hard not to enjoy this place. Highly recommended. If they could put some energy into music that would be good. Don’t need golden Western oldies in an authentic Korean place

    Great night. We had a table upstairs with only four tables in it and when a large family came in it was fairly noisy but the family was lovely so it didn’t really matter. There is a toilet upstairs so yo7 don’t have to go down two flights of stairs. We were all fairly hungry and the food was excellent. Varied, tasty and there was plenty of it. Service was a bit slow at the start but the waiter was helpful and friendly so we had a great night. We will definitely be back.

    Always a great experience at Goon BBQ. A little pricey as with all Korean BBQ restaurants, but worth your buck as you get friendly service, cosy yet trendy ambience and good quality food. Highly recommend. My favourite kbbq place in the north.

    Goon is a good time! The only reason I give it 4 stars is because there are a couple of other hole in the wall Korean BBQ spots in Melbourne that are outstanding. Try to get a booking on the main floor, its lively and a great atmosphere. The food and the service is great and the price is good value. You really cant go wrong if you are looking for a place for Korean BBQ in Fitzroy, Collingwood or Carlton. We will continue to come back

    The food was okay, we were not served all of our set we were missing rice and still charged full price. The meat was alright, just looked like it was frozen before reaching us and lacked salt. We missed out on the bbq experience because someone cooked it for us. Food did take a while to come out. It was a surprising experience considerably all of the reviews we had seen. Given how steep the price was for the experience and food we had, we probably won’t come again. There’s better places out there.
