The people of Carlton have been waiting for a proper Korean restaurant to open up shop, and to the delight of local foodies, it’s finally arrived on Lygon Street in the form of Hwatu, where diners can opt to partake in table-top cooking, chow down on some fried chicken or slurp down incredible soups and tasty noodles. This sleek restaurant has already become a hit local circles, drawing in guests from all over Melbourne’s inner northern suburbs (and beyond) with their modern take on classic Far Eastern cuisine. At lunch, there are specials like the spicy crispy chicken or the bulgogi stone pot stew, each served with a number of sides and a choice of soft drink. The real draw to this popular restaurant is undoubtedly the barbecue, so do make sure to order up one of the sets with meats like scotch fillet, ox tongue, pork belly or lamb cutlets. No matter what you’re craving at Hwatu, booking ahead of time is your best bet!
It was a great place to eat, tasty food and a relaxed environment. Would come again
Great food, great service! Had such a good time with my partner.
The food was rather cold when it was served, was also disappointed when we asked to do a half and half of the fried chicken but told it could not be done THEN overheard the table next to us ask for the same thing and had the order placed. Also our food was served after a table that was seated after us and we had to request for the drinks we ordered twice before it was served. Not sure if i will go back
