  • Visitor Information

This affordable Korean eatery in the West End offers up traditional dishes and a good value lunch menu. Nara is spread over two floors, so you may be seated in the basement if they're having a busy day, you will often find the place is packed with Korean customers. The spicy pork belly and the stir-fried squid with sweet chilli sauce are popular, as are some of the more exotic dishes for the more adventurous diners. This is quality Korean food at everyday prices. Pop in for a quick midday treat as they also serve lighter sushi and sashimi dishes. The staff have been known to favour their Korean† guests but still provide friendly and efficient service.
