Nestled amidst many Korean restaurants in this stretch of Tanjong Pagar, Guiga Korean BBQ Restaurant 구이가 바베큐 한식당 at the corner stands out.

Not only for its popularity but also for its commitment to authentic Korean flavours.

Having recently undergone a renovation, the restaurant now boasts a contemporary modern look making it more inviting to visit.

If you are planning an early dinner outing, aim to be at Guiga a little before 6pm.

Arriving later than that, especially during peak dining times, often translates into scribbling your name onto the reservation sheet and steeling yourself for a lengthy wait.

However, the restaurant has made reservations now convenient with a simple text or WhatsApp message to 8318 0998.

For those seeking an indulgent dining experience, the Wagyu Prime Set is a carnivore’s dream come true.

Priced at $160, this set offers melt-in-your-mouth wagyu sirloin, flavorsome wagyu oyster blade, and the succulent prime beef rib.

However, if you are keen on maximizing value, one of the BBQ Sets would be a wise choice. Though prices have seen an uptick (quite a fair bit of increase) post-renovation, the offerings remain as tantalising as ever.

The Set A Beef ($109) is a delightful mix of prime beef ribs, bone-in short rib, oyster blade, and a choice of marinated short rib or Gwangyang Sutbulgui.

If you are keen to diversify your meat selection, the Set B Pork & Chicken ($68) offers fresh pork belly, soy sauce marinated chicken, marinated pork ribs, and thinly sliced pork belly.

But, for those torn between beef and pork, Set C ($88) provides the best of both worlds.

On my visit, I opted for Set C. The star of this set for me was undoubtedly the Marinated Prime Beef Short Ribs.

Each bite was a harmony of textures and flavors – juicy, with a firm but tender bite, and seasoned just right so that you could still taste the natural beefy goodness.

And a special shoutout must be given to the Korean staff who guided us through the BBQ process, helping to cut and recommending the ideal sequence for savoring each item.

This personalised touch significantly elevated the dining experience.

By the way, the banchan (or side dishes) were a delightful treat as well – ensuring the meal was balanced and complete.

If you are in the mood for something beyond BBQ, Guiga doesn’t disappoint. The Yukhoe ($40) which is beef tartare and Yukhoe Bibimbap ($25) are worthy contenders.

Meanwhile, the Ganjang Gejang ($48) which are marinated raw crabs, Yangnyeom Gejang ($48), Galbitang ($25), and Beef Rib Soup with Vegetables ($25) offer a deeper dive into authentic Korean cuisine.
