Melbourne is no stranger to a Korean barbecue restaurant. You'll find them all over the CBD and out in the burbs. We've also got all kinds of them — from affordable BYO joints and all-you-can-eat affairs to fancier varieties with top-quality cuts, there's something for every budget and occasion.

CBD KBBQ spot Woo399 lands on the more premium side of things. Don't get us wrong, it's not a hushed-voiced fine-diner. There's still plenty of fun to be had over the gas-fired grills in the 104-person restaurant. We say it's more high-end because of the quality of meat that's on offer.

The team sources its pure-bred wagyu from Elbow Valley in Queensland, where the cattle are fed a combination of orange pulp and locally grown grains like wheat, barley and corn. This results in outstanding meat quality, with the team sourcing plenty of cuts with a 9+ marble score.

And unlike most Korean barbecue joints, you don't just choose a banquet or selection of meats from the menu. At Woo399, you make your way up to the butcher's fridge, where top-grade meat has already been sliced and packaged for you. Like what you've tried? The pre-packaged cuts are also available to take home.

If you're dining in though, simply load up your basket with your chosen cuts, pay at the counter and get grilling. Each person is charged $9.99 to use the grills, and that price includes sauces, three side dishes and unlimited soft drinks. For an extra cost, you can fill out your meal with the likes of kimchi, croquettes, soup and veggies. And if you'd rather pair your KBBQ with some booze, Cass and soju are also on the menu.
