G2 Korean BBQ looks like a cool inner-Melbourne canteen, an industrial-chic nook on Elizabeth Street with stylish furniture and creative lighting. It’s not some hip cafe, though, but an honest and hearty Korean restaurant serving the most succulent grilled meat, flavoursome broth and zingy kimchi you can find in the CBD. Bring a group, because there’s nothing more sociable and satisfying than Korean barbecue – but in this case it’s vital to reserve well ahead of time, because G2 is never quiet.
A small restaurant with big character, G2 Korean BBQ serves up smoky traditional grills in a very chic, modern space of exposed walls, dangling brass ventilators and wooden floorboards. Found in the heart of Melbourne’s CBD on Elizabeth Street, G2 Korean BBQ is fantastic for a quick but delicious lunch break. But at the end of the workday, settle in and trade bento boxes for beefy barbecue and you’ll really get to appreciate what’s on offer here, which is to say one of Melbourne’s most authentic Korean grills, calling on both time-tested tradition and new ideas.
G2 Korean BBQ gives you top quality meat and seafood (and a little guidance) to sizzle up to your liking, right at the table, over a hot grill. Then comes the procession of delicious sauces, including an authentic sam-jang or G2’s signature homemade sweet soy sauce. Throw in hefty mounds of complexly flavoured kimchi and some seaweed salad, and you have one of the most satisfying Korean meals in Melbourne, found in the thick of the CBD on Elizabeth Street, a stone’s throw from Melbourne Central.
Friendly service and the food was amazing! We both got the course meal (minimum of 2 servings) that included 2 rice, 2 desserts, an entree and 3 separate cuts of pork
