Service is prompt. Ordered the beef and pork for bbq since you are required to order a minimum of 2. Server helped to cook the food and serve us. Both meats were decently marinated and tasted alright.Also ordered the korean pancake and chicken soup with glutinous rice stuffed in it. Average as well, nothing to recommend but not poorly cooked as well.Would not recommend unless you do not mind the price.

Our normal potato salad banchan (반찬) ran out when we asked for a refill. But what was served was a very refreshing sweet purple potato salad banchan!

In it, there are small red pepper and black bean bits, topped with peanut crush. LOVELY. Couldnt stop eating this despite me being too full after my chiggae.

My friend was also very pleased with her dolsot bibimbap (돌솥 비빔밥) a.k.a stone pot bibimbap!!

So I have been on the hunt for naengmyun and this place serves it. With all the 'authenticity' and the beef-filled menu, I was really looking forward to it.The naengmyun has the right ingredients: icy cold stock, noodles which were a little chewy, sliced beef, sliced korean pear, sliced cukes (cucumber) and the hard boiled egg. Sides of vinegar and mustard totally get the thumbs up for the authentic! Seoul Yummy used to serve this but without this level of authenticity.But is it good? I'd say OK

Sides of vinegar and mustard totally get the thumbs up for the authentic! Seoul Yummy used to serve this but without this level of authenticity.

But is it good? I'd say OK, the beef stock was not as flavorful even after I added my desired sides, and the noodles were a bit on the soft side. But we are a little hard-pressed to find something as close to the real deal in SG, so this shall be my go-to. Prices at $15, so it's a little steep!

The layout of the restaurant is sort of odd. Sometimes it's rather tough to get the attention of the waiter. The exhaust system doesn't seem to be very good as we exited the place smelling like bbq and korean food.Cutlery with teaBanchans were a little odd tasting.

This tasted more like a hot and oily omelette, though it was larger size than I had expected.

Never seen this minced beef and bean stew before. They pretty much put it on a stove in front of you and it was bubbling for a while and spewing out of the pot. Apparently, the waiter assured us that they were keeping track of the time so it wouldn't be burnt or overcooked but we were worried for a bit.

When I visit Korean restaurants, I must have Japchae. The noodles are made of sweet potato and it is thicker and much more springy than the traditional tanghoon. I like that this japchae has tons of sesame seed and black fungi. The black fungi is cooked till it is rather soft and the texture of it really blends and complements the noodles well. This can be eaten with spicy soy paste to enhance the flavour of the dish. Love it!

Following the successful debut of their flagship branch at The Star Vista, BORNGA Korean BBQ Restaurant has now made its foray into family mega-mall Vivocity, bringing the authentic Korean experience to shoppers there by way of a new spacious 130-seater with 3 seating areas, including one with a view of Sentosa.

To commemorate the opening of its second outlet, BORNGA has also introduced a number of new dishes to the menu, while maintaining the signature ones which have been a favorite with returning customers.

The Yangnyum Dwaeji Galbi $33 / 250g [new*] stole my heart with its arresting caramelized sheen and succulent juiciness that made chewing this tender meat an absolute delight. And because it had already been marinated with a special house sauce prior to hitting the grill, the best way to eat the meat, is to simply pick it up with your chopsticks and eat it just the way it is. Heavenly!

Of course, a long tray of 10 varieties of fresh vegetables is also provided for diners to wrap their BBQ meats with.

A unique addition to the BORNGA menu is this Bornga Bulgogi - $45 (serves 2 to 3) [new*], a sumptuous bubbling beef hotpot that features beef fillet that has been marinated with BORNGA special sauce, fresh vegetables and glass noodles. A must try even if just for novelty sake.

Our favorite item of all, thee spicy pork slices in this Dwaeji Gohchujang Barbeque $36 [new*] are first grilled then stir-fried with spring onions and served on a hot plate. The result is a rush of seductive smoke from the plate which tickles your nose. There was a subtle undertone of woodsmoke, with a hint of caramelized sugar woven in with every bite. The highlight had to be those onions that were charred till gloriously sweet. An overall harmonious combination which coated the tongue with a complexity of flavors. We scrapped this clean, down to the last onion leaf.

BORNGA is a great place to consider when you next have a craving for Korean BBQ. And one thing is for sure, you will not come out smelling like the barbequed meats because of the installation of the new extendable exhaust which absorbs all those unpleasant fumes.
