SOOT Korean BBQ Opens in Barangaroo: Modern KBBQ Meets Aussie Steakhouse


Grab your mates, because Barangaroo’s first Korean BBQ is here. SOOT is now open in Sydney’s newest dining precinct, bringing modern Korean BBQ and the very finest Wagyu and Australian cuts. Grill with guests alongside a range of flavour-packed Korean dishes and banchan, as well as exceptional Korean liquor and cocktails. You’d be fully aware of the Korean cuisine takeover in Sydney, so if this doesn’t get you excited, we don’t know what would.

SOOT is the latest venue from Kolture, Sydney’s new Korean-focused hospitality group led by David Bae who knows about the Korean boom all too well: “I know Korean BBQ like the back of my hand and learnt from the masters. I want to take the experience up a notch for Sydneysiders. SOOT will be more refined and not as fast-paced as your usual KBBQ. We want to take the time to educate and guide our guests on how to have the ultimate experience, showing them aspects of our cultural heritage, and Korean BBQ and drinking etiquette.”

The restaurant seeks to push the boundaries of Australia’s dining scene by creating diverse cultural experiences. It’s all about premium and aged wagyu and Australian meat cuts paired best with exceptional Korean liquor. Staff will also be experts in their craft, guiding guests on how to best cook their meat and vegetables on the grill. However, just like your regular Korean BBQ, the dining experience is all about community, sharing and cooking together and atmosphere.

“The experience and atmosphere at Korean BBQ are unmatched – it’s all about socialising and community, great food, great drinks and heaps of fun – and it’s exactly what Barangaroo needs,” said Bae.

Menu standouts include the ‘Korean Fried Chicken or Cauliflower’ with sweet Gochujang sauce or umami mayo. From the raw bar, choose from rock oysters with mandarin balsamic mignonette, ‘Gochujang Hoe Salad’ of assorted sashimi with Gochujang vinaigrette. Noodle and rice standouts include ‘Dol Sot Bibimbap’ with minced Wagyu, soft-poached egg and Gochujang in a sizzling hot stone bowl and for soup, we can’t wait to try the ‘Tofu Clam Soup’ or ‘Soondubu’ with clams, silken tofu and egg. For dessert, the ‘Sweet Potato Cheesecake’ promises to be life-changing.

“We’re excited to get more people trying Korean BBQ, sharing our culture and introducing people to new flavours and dishes they’ve never tried before,” explained Bae. “We hope our guests leave with lasting memories and then bring back more of their family and friends to share in the experience.”

The best bit? You don’t have to worry about the smell of smoke after a visit to SOOT. The restaurant is fitted with smokeless and odourless DIY charcoal grills on every table. Check out the menu via the link below, and visit the website to make a booking.
