Bull Bar Restaurant, Elizabeth St

Bull Bar

Got a craving for some late night Korean goodness? Bull Bar serves up all your authentic Korean favourites like bibimbap, fried chicken and hotpot, as well as more interesting combinations (Kimchi fried rice with melted cheese, anyone?). With its graffitied walls, this underground eatery is a real vibe. This place opens til late, making it a great spot to go after 10pm.

Hanwoori, Mary St


Self-proclaimed “Brisbane’s Best Korean BBQ Restaurant”, Hanwoori on Mary St certainly delivers its promise on the grill. There is an extensive all-you-can-eat dinner buffet menu featuring all your favourite meats and seafood – think beef short ribs, pork belly and baby octopus – as well as six kinds of fried chicken, a loaded salad bar and plenty of sides and sauces.

Chi Mc is a fast-food finger-licking favourite, serving up crispy fried boneless chicken, succulent wings and salty potato crisps alongside buckets of beer and soju. There’s a great value lunch special for $19.90 which gets you a big serving of fried chicken and beer, as well as $1 wings on Wednesdays. This place also splits bills, making it great for sharing large portions of fried chicken with your mates.

Korilla BBQ Restaurant, Queen St


If you haven’t yet been to Korilla, you’ve probably walked by without knowing it was there. This place serves up Japanese-Korean fusion right in the heart of Brisbane City, including mouthwatering wagyu beef sets for two, bibimbap bowls, seafood pancakes and more. Korilla has a nice ambience with plenty of seating space and is perfect for large groups – but be prepared to wait for a table in the evenings because this place does get busy. To find it, just look for the long staircase towards the Casino end of Queen St.

Maru Korean Fine Cuisine, Elizabeth St


From hearty soups to spicy dishes and melt-in-your-mouth barbecue, Maru caters to every Korean craving. Each table has an in-built tabletop barbecue so you can grill food yourself and salivate as you wait for the meat to cook to perfection. We recommend you try the deep-fried chicken with a bottle of Hite Korean beer in hand. Delicious!
