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.

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.

We tried this with a knowledgeable cousin, who recommended it as the best Korean food in Dunedin. I can't speak to that, but it was a lovely no-frills meal with some of my favourite Korean dishes. The decor is fairly simple, but we sat in the front, with a fine view of Knox Church.
