This restaurant is no longer trading.

Located on Grote Street, Ga Bin serves Korean cuisine and a few Chinese dishes, though the Korean dishes are the main interest of the restaurant. With each meal, they provide a selection of Korean side dishes. One of them is kimchi, the Korean fermented cabbage. The cabbage in the kimchi was crisp whose flavour was set off by the chilli paste.

The beef in the bulgogi (marinated beef dish) that we had was cooked to the correct doneness and its flavour was rounded out by the garlic soy sauce it was cooked in. While we would have liked the sauce in the Dak – Bokkeum (Korean Chicken Stew) to be a bit spicier, it did help to bring out the flavour of the ingredients. The chicken was cooked just right and the slightly chewy rice sticks contrasted wonderfully with the chicken. Bokkeum is a Korean term given to dishes that are stir-fried in a sauce.

The large cuts of eggplant made eating the Stir-fried Eggplant and Bean Curd with Chilli Bean Sauce a bit difficult. However, the dish was tasty with both the eggplant and tofu cooked to perfection and the chilli bean sauce complemented the ingredients nicely without overpowering it.

The food was served relatively quickly and the ambience was very good as there was a good amount of space between the tables. Some of the restaurants we have visited felt a bit cramped due to the tables being quite close to each other. We intend to visit it again to try some more of their Korean specialities.
