I ever blogged this place before in 2014. As the owner has changed, so here I am to blog this small Korean restaurant again. From time to time, I would have sudden crave of Korean food. Generally the Korean food here is not cheap, especially those manned by Korean owners. Of course they are authentic, but if you are on shoe-string budget, the last resort is this place. Though I don't think the current owner is a Korean.

Different owner, different menu. But they do serve the most popular dishes, like Kimchi stew, BBQ pork belly, Budae stew, spicy rice cake and fried chicken. Plus point, their pricing is reasonable and affordable too.

The only drawback I can pick on is their side dishes. They provide one bowl of kimchi and that's it. Whereas the previous owner provided two types of side dishes. Anyway, no complaint. For the price you pay, this is what you get.

We waited quite long for our food to be served. Starved.. and finally our fried chicken is here. First bite, wow.. it tastes great but subsequent bites my tongue started to get numb. It was too salty. I doubt I would want to order this again on my next visit as I have phobia of its saltiness.

The kimchi stew. We ordered the large size (RM25), sufficient for two. The ingredients are really sumptuous. It has kimchi, beancurd, luncheon, pork and chicken. Generous portion and totally worth the price. I hope their standard will remain the same as this.

The last visit we had budae stew. It was not bad too. Next time I'll still order this kimchi stew. Look at the picture, making me mouth watering again.

The map to Kimchi Korea:


  1. I tried the korean food, not authentic and too salty.

    1. Hi, I don't think the current owner is Korean so the dishes are not authentic. Unless you go to Koreana, Korean Goong, and Seoul Garden, these are operated by Koreans. But based on comparison with other Korean restaurants, their pricing is rather cheap.


Thank you for your comment!
