Time Out says

This huge Korean gastropub (it clocks in at a cool 8,100-square-foot) is decorated with suspended swings and climbing ropes – the latter apparently to symbolize the ‘tying’ or connecting of people together. The venue’s name loosely translates as ‘musical accompaniment’ so don’t be surprized to hear some aural treats alongside the great-looking food.

The menu ranges from bibimbaps and some hefty hot pots that serve two or three people to tapas plates such as truffle fries, calamri and peanuts, popcorn chicken, Korean shrimp ceviche and steamed buns with your choice of bulgogi (thinly sliced marinated rib-eye), spicy pork, fish or braised and pulled duck. 

BBQ combos prove popular, too. The beef combo combines short rib, skirt steak, rib-eye and marinated short rib, while the pork combo serves up pork jowl, pork belly, pork butt and marinated pork rib. Each combo somes with corn cheese, egg soufflé, a basket of lettuce and seasonal veg, ban-chan and chef's dipping sauces. 

There’s a strong cocktail selection, including a number made with Korean spirits.
