    The boneless chicken was delicious and a small serve is still very generous. We ordered original with spicy sauce on the side and sweet and sticky. Lovely slaw and pickled radish accompaniment. Very attentive service with good advice.

    What a lovely dinner we had at Gunbae! Perhaps if it were a Thursday or Friday night the noise may have been higher, but on a Tuesday evening, it was just perfect. The service was outstanding - I'm annoyed at myself for not taking note of the charming young man who was manning the bar as well as table service almost entirely on his own. He was very kind, with a good sense of the personalities of his patrons. We went with Gunbae's version of a Feed Me ($35 a head) and got value for money. Just the right amount of food for our party of 8, with perhaps more salad left over than I would have liked, but only because we'd filled ourselves with four different flavours of chicken plus four sides, and in my case, a serve of kimchi jeon (SO GOOD!). The beer drinkers assure me that the selection on offer is a good one, the cocktails were enjoyed as well, and I really liked my pear juice. The only issue we hit was that the ice tea drinker wasn't expecting a house iced tea, and it turns out she's not as much a fan of that beverage when it isn't made by Liptons and comes in a bottle. ;) Thank you, Gunbae, for a great evening out.

    Best KFC - not oily and with that special yang nyeom sauce, Yum! Small menu selection but enough to satisfy our hunger! Good food choices to enjoy with alcohol, thus the name Gunbae is prefect!

    Food was great and although a small menu a really good variety to choose from. Nice comfortable layout. Service was terrific and waitress on the day went above and beyond by going to a nearby coffee shop to buy a coffee for one of our guests. A great lunch venue.

    The KFC is not oily and very yummy. There isn't a large menu selection available but what is available is delicious. Would like to see a couple more vegetarian options on the menu. Service is friendly and prompt. Been more than 5 times and will be back again for a lovely meal!

    Had to wait a bit for our order to be taken but once it was taken, the food started pouring shortly. We went for the feed me and it was satisfying and worth it. The entrees were tasty. The two flavoured chicken served were tasty. The original flavour needs some spices as it is bland on its own. Asked for a spicy sauce and it helped. Overall, satisfying.
