SuperStar BBQ offers a great Korean BBQ in a fab environment - perfect to celebrate a birthday. It's a popular place there was a long queue when we left so definitely book ahead to avoid disappointment. We tried the most expensive set menu at £45 per person. The initial non BBQ dishes were fab. Pickles and kimchi was tasty. The fried chicken was addictive and the seafood pancake was my absolute favourite. The raw steak with the egg yolk was a little hairy but I'm naturally nervous over uncooked eggs, but the other half loved it. The BBQ was amazing (apart from the fatty pork bits but I think all Korean BBQ offers this cut). The bill came with cut fruit and a sweet cinnamon drink. Staff were really friendly. Was a brilliant treat and we'll definitely come back.
Definitely one for BBQ'd meat lovers, Superstar BBQ was a really interesting experience.
Fortunately we had one person in our group who had been before, otherwise the process would have been a bit confusing, and could have been explained by the waiters. Similar to the 'cook-your-own' places that have opened recently – you pick from a wide range of meats and vegetables and cook them on little grills set into your table. There were 12 of us with 4 grills between our tables but there are different sized tables available and it's quite a big space – I'd say a group of 6 is ideal, as then you can all sit on one table!
For £17, we had a small portion of the Korean Fried Chicken, which was delicious and marinated in sweet chilli sauce; the pork and veg dumplings; one set of fried noodles; and marinated lamb and pork belly as our grilled meat selection. The flavours on the meat and noodles were really lovely, and everything of course tasted fresh. Once it all arrives, it's down to you! Definitely a lot of fun cooking your own meats, though it is a bit of work and I was a bit nervous that I'd accidentally poison myself ;)
Overall – a great meal for when you want a fun experience without breaking the bank!
It's been a while since I've had Korean BBQ, mainly because it's not easy to find an accessible one. This area has a range of restaurants and all relatively wheelchair accessible. This place even has karaoke, but sadly it's downstairs and there are no lifts. As it's been a while since I had Korean BBQ, I felt like a newbie and had no idea what I was doing. We asked for some recommendations and went for the belly pork, chicken boolgogi, ribeye and some sides and veg. It's pretty self explanatory what you have to do, but I thought staff would have demonstrated or offered some assistance. How hard is it to place the meat on the grill and wait for it to cook right? Well that part wasn't too bad, it was just that the grill became black and burnt with residue from the previous meat. We weren't really sure what we were supposed to do, but it was a bit of fun doing it yourself and the meat was nicely seasoned and flavoursome. It would have been good if we knew what we were doing, but I suppose that's all part of the learning process and the fun part. Food was ok, not as good as I remember Korean BBQ to be. Also be aware you will be leaving the restaurant smelling of BBQ'd meat.
