    My husband had been to Gunbae on a boys night and at the time, I was way more excited about looking at the menu than he was - but I've heard about the chicken for weeks now and he finally took me for a quick meal pre movie and I now understand why he loved it so much. Crispy, but not oily, cooked well (can't be easy cooking that much chicken either), generous portion with a sweet and sticky, spicy sauce with sesame seeds - delicious. That's not mentioning the starters either - a really light, again, not oily veggie dumpling cooked to perfection accompanied by very yummy chips (although possibly could've been a little more golden). We actually chose the dinner for 2 option and so the chicken when it came as the main also had a few side dishes - coleslaw and a salad along with a palate cleansing pickle (of which sort I can't recall) - I'm not sure I've ever heard the other half mention so many times how much he liked the salad, although admittedly, it tasted a bit like it had lemon meringue pie dressing on it (sounds weird, but was pretty tasty). The wine list is short but the staff were very keen to hear feedback as the offerings were new and whilst not outstanding, the red we chose was very drinkable and decently priced. Overall, this basically hole-in-the-wall, very unassuming restaurant was busy but we were well looked after by the super lovely staff. Food was worth going back for!

    My partner I and ordered 'dinner for two'. Food was great however disappointed by the service. We got all our food apart from the salad, which came out after we had finished our food and packed up our plates. No apology at all. We said we didn't want the salad as we had already finished and said just give it to another table. The waiter said it was her job to deliver the salad and left it on the table even though we said several times we didn't want it. No apology at all. That was all that was required. We left feeling angry about our experience at Gunbae.

    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.

    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.
