Excellent restaurant, great food, lovely atmosphere and great service. Finally a Korean restaurant that is pitched at diner who want to eat good quality authentic Korean food. I have been to Korea and have eaten with many Korean friends in their homes and this restaurant is the best example of Korean food.
First time to visit and eat at Faro Restaurant.The food presentation at Faro was good. The staff very friendly , some staff limited with their English understanding.empty side dishes left on the table . Although pricey well worth visiting and experiencing western style Korean.
Comparing to another Korean restaurant we usually eat at (being my first choice for Korean food ) but hubby wanted to experience a different place hence Faro Restaurant. The other Korean Restaurant they constantly replenish any empty side dishes no extra charge , had a set price per head very reasonable. Not only did they have set menu’s but they also had a set price buffet displaying side dishes and different meats and sauces and spices, which you select and take back to your table and cook.Perhaps Faro could look at doing the same. Not suitable for children, more suited for large groups, and special occasions
2nd time at this restaurant and once again – good food, well priced, very friendly & helpful staff. Can be a bit noisy at times as we found out. Our evening was spoilt by some feral idiots from the Auckland office of Korean Airlines & their local business partners having a work get-together right next to us – obviously they could not handle the alcohol and most of their conversation was expletive ridden – making this an embarrassing dinner choice to go out with my parents. The manager at the desk did not seem to understand/bothered and we did not bother explaining any further.
Very nice restaurant, the atmosphere is really enjoyable. It’s nice to have BBQ food cooked on your table without smelling like smoke, since the restaurant has individual extractor fans for every table. price wise, it was kind of expensive, it would be a restaurant for special occasion.
food was good, the restaurant was tidy. not the cheapest korean food but you pay more for the quality.
Been here on many occasions and this is the sort of place you would introduce people to Korean food. But from my past experiences with Korean food, I would say the food is good but not great. But overall, it’s an authentic Korean restaurant.
Been here more than 5 times. Definitely one of the BEST korean food in Auckland.
Staffs (who serve at the table) a bit rude and have bad expression on their face while service. I’ve experienced more than 3 times already.
It’s different back in 2011 when staffs were really friendly.
The manager is superb !
Will give them one last chance.
Went to this restaurant purely because my friends and I heard Big Bang (korean boy band) were dining here – and we love Korean food too. Restaurant is super classy, a bit of a mix between authentic Korean style decor and western decor. Service was OK – staff were borderline friendly though it was a busy period so that may be the underlying factor. However, food was pretty over-priced, definitely not worth what I paid for and they tried to push us out as fast as possible after we finished our meal, quite rude to be honest.
Wouldn’t recommend this place if you’re interested in dining Korean food as this place is extremely over-priced, average to poor tasting food and semi rude customer service.
Very authentic food and great decor. However a bit overpriced.
Good, am a fan of authentic Korean BBQ, these guys are close, but not quite there. Perhaps being a little fussy….
Shame they didn’t have Sesame leaves, that would have got them 5 stars.
Waitresses were very friendly and helpful.
- a beautiful traditional Korean environment with sunken tables and very peaceful, nice decor.
- service was very attentive and super friendly. The waitresses actually sit at your table for while helping to prepare your bbq meal.
- price reasonable. We had a decent meal for 4 people at $80.
- unlimited side dishes as with most Korean restaurants
- ENTERTAINMENT BOOK participant. 25% discount.
- food was nice quality and very authentic Korean.
- very clean, flash looking place
- free tea, which is unlike many Chinese restaurants these days.
- tried hard, but I can think of anything this time.
If you cant afford or bother travelling to Korea, then come here for a short experience. This is how an ethnic restaurant should be. Will I be coming back – I think so, and would encourage anyone who likes a different experience at a reasonable price to do so.
I can tell it is the best new style of Korean restaurant in Auckland. I would recommend booking before you go. I really enjoyed all the foods (free plenty side dishes!) , atmosphere, services. So tasty! It was good experience to cook BBQ by myself. I would love to go again! Thank you FARO!
It was great experience!! One of my friends took me, we were party of 5, everyone enjoyed. So delicious, good service as well. Like it!
