Usually when we go there, there is sweet rice water drink for the only dessert served for lunch time but on that day there were none. I was kind of disappointed because I like that drink.

It was fine up until the end when we had to make a payment and the guy tried to argue with me and our family as my cousin had already paid for her kids but he forgot to note it down. So he kept arguing that there were 4 kids needed to be paid when there was suppose to only be 1 as my cousin paid for her 3. It got pretty rowdy but he admitted his mistake, we paid and left. Food definitely better than the service

Too much meat and the quality wasn't the best. Also found a lot of the prepared dishes were getting empty by 6pm and quite cold.

Very unwelcoming rude stuff. The bbq meat was chewy and all that was edible was the chips and fried chicken. Will not be returning.

Have visited 3 times now and although it was a limited menu post-COVID, food and service has been outstanding. Very clean, great selection of dishes and easy to book online. Have tried calling numerous times to book or amend an booking via phone call but can never get through. Nevertheless still happy.

It was our first time going to the Korean Buffet and when we got there the only server seemed run off his feet. We sat down at our table and honestly had no idea what to do. I think it’s just assumed you know to just get up and start getting yourself food. We also didn’t know that you have to go up to the bar to order meat? We just assumed they came around and took your meat order. The place was way too busy in my opinion. I guess it’s just what type of atmosphere you prefer but the Self serve food tend to run out extremely fast and it was about a 10 minute wait for fresh stuff to come out and then a scramble to get up there and get the fresh food before it ran out again. The food was pretty good, however, especially since you can eat as much as you want. I just think they need more server and maybe a few more signs around the place.

Bring back your old menu! The hotpot! Not enough food was out and where was the childrens nuggets? My family and I have been coming to paldo for so long now often celebrating birthdays there. But lastnight we left disappointed about the new menu. BRING BACK HOTPOT AND YOUR USUAL MENU! Please please!
