Looking For Something Different

We came across this when looking to try something different. It is not that easy to find, being upstairs on a main street in the student area, but was worth finding. It is quite simply decorated with plain tables and chairs but we were warmly greeted upon arrival. The staff were pleased to help... read more

Popped in for an evening meal here 2 nights ago (Monday night) during visit to Dunedin. Upon entry (upstairs) was warmly welcomed. Place filled up rapidly with more than half being Korean students. Had the seafood pancake for starters followed by the dolsot bibimbap washed down with a Korean light beer. Total cost $32, value for money. Dishes were very... More

Have been quite a few times now, the food is consistently good. I really like the variety, and enjoy the spicy wings as a treat. Have tried quite a bit of their menu, and can't say we have had much to complain about here. Will dine here time and time again, would absolutely recommend.

Really delicious korean food and the atmosphere is warm and cozy, good when the weather outside is miserable! The staff greets u when u walk in. My friend really loves her seafood pot stew, so much that she had it three times for all her 3 visits to the restaurant. We also tried korean fried chicken, which was highly recommended... More

As a former student at Otago... I can recommend this place as one of the cheapest and also tastiest places to eat near the campus. The low prices might lead you to think the food was going to be badly prepared...by no means. Everything I have had here has been great and I have been here a lot. They serve... More

I very much enjoyed both the dolsot bibimbap and the jap chae. My friends really like the grape drink available in cans, that has real grapes in it.

We spent a great evening at Korea House. The service was pleasant, the menu was fantastic and the food pretty damn good too. It's been around a long time and I can see why.

Korea House was a great night out and we loved the food. Was really authentic and nicely presented. Best thing was the cost. $22NZD for an entree and main! Would definitely go again. Great value for money.

We were visiting Dunedin for the world cup and fancied some korean food. Stopped off at Korea House for lunch and were very pleasantly surprised. Really tasty and authentic food and friendly staff, even during a quiet lunchtime. Will go again next time we come to Dunedin.
