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.
The kimchi jjigae was the best! The bbq was okay plus the service's really good.
The Staff were so lovely, a really great experience The food was really delicious ! Can't wait for my next visit to G2 Korean BBQ
Great food great service, they helped cook our food because we were a bit nervous. Everything tasted amazing. Food came fast and the drinks were delicious
The food was great and delicious and the atmosphere is always good. I loved that they helped us barbeque or pork and beef. Will definitely go there again.
Booked a table for 4, greeted by friendly and prompt staff. We were seated upstairs, it got a little muggy and because the windows were closed but eventually they opened it half an hour into our meal. The food came out quite quickly except the rice which we had to ask a few times, perhaps because it was quite busy. Staff cooked our meats on the stove and were attentive. Food was delicious, we ordered the pork set and bulgogi meat.
G2 was a lovely place for my friends and I to have lunch, the service was fast and the people were very nice. It was our first time having Korean BBQ so they offered to do it for us. The food was delicious and didn't fail to impress. Would definitely go again.
Great food and hospitality. Staff were friendly and the setting was nice. BBQ smelled amazing and I highly recommend G2 Korean BBQ to anyone looking for an authentic experience.
Excellent service and good quality of food, great atmosphere. Suggestion : Ask customers who uses smart devices to calm their children either turn the sound off or use a headphone instead, I want to enjoy the atmosphere but the not the noise of other people's phone.
We had a great time on G2, good food and good ambience. I do recommend the visit if you don't know what is Korean barbecue, just a good opportunity to discover.
Absolutely love G2, I always go there for dinner with my boyfriend or sister. Their service is amazing, staff always greet us and they are not afraid tone gangrenous coversation
