There are so many Korean BBQ's in the heart of Sydney, Eastwood, Chatswood, Strathfield and so forth but really out of all those restaurants, which are the better ones. Madang is clearly one of my ultimate favourites but another favourite of mine is definately Goldmart. Fresh from the butcher is the only way I can sum it up in a few words!

I wouldn't even call it a restaurant, it is more like a sheltered area with a handful of korean bbq stoves owned by the Korean Grocery store, Goldmart. Inside the grocery store is the butcher where you purchase all your fresh meat. The meats are fairly decently priced, being around $12 per KG for marinated ribs and around $20 per box of wagyu meat. The rice and veges were also quite average. The only thing I find expensive about this place is a $5 charge per person to use their BBQ stoves. Though, I guess it is expected that you will be charged some form of usage fee at places like such.

Once you step food into Goldmart, I can almost guarentee that you wont find many other places as good as this. The only downside is that their service can be quite poor. For example, we had to ask about 5 times for our sauces while our meat was sizzling away. No water is provided to you, you need to request it a few times. Rice doesn't come till 5 years later as well. Overall though, it is definately worth giving it a go!
