Oiso traditional cuisine and cafe

Traditional Korean meals are noted for their number of side dishes {banchan} and usually being served with Korean BBQ. My love affair with korean BBQ began from Kung Jung restaurant and it's the best korean meal I had.
Oiso traditional cuisine and cafe is located at the sphere, bangsar south. To my surprise, there are quite a lot of decent restaurant in this building.
There are indoor and outdoor seating area in the restaurant. We opted for outdoor as we could have a great view outside while having our meal.

The best thing I like about oiso is they serve you banchan with any main dish. This was the first time I had the banchan without ordering the BBQ. Personally, I think banchan is good appetizer. The portion of the side dishes was kinda small but they didn't failed to replenish it.. thanks god!
To be honest I'm not a fan of kimchi, but I found their kimchi was not bad, addictively spicy and less pungent.
The grilled mackerel was a bit too dry. The grilled beef meat was more to my liking, it goes well with a bowl white rice. The set was came with soup as well. The pancake tastes not bad but we couldn't finish it as we were too stuffed to eat anymore.
