Top Korean Restaurants in Chinatown Melbourne You Have to Try

A culinary accomplishment in Melbourne is dining at a Korean BBQ restaurant, where you may refill on banchan, turn marbled meats on a communal grill, down rounds of soju, and experience the thrill of corn cheese. Our city is home to hundreds of scrumptious Korean meat meccas, each with its style and flair, and has one of Australia’s fastest-growing Korean populations. We have missed having KBBQ with a group of your closest friends in a vibrant restaurant setting throughout the pandemic. It should be noted that the majority of the eateries on our list may only allow walk-ins, so arrive early and plan to wait for the busiest restaurants—we guarantee it will be worth it.
