this restaurant has a great atmosphere: tranquil, clean and pleasant. the service was good. we were the only customers and received a lot of attention and many free tastings. I'm unsure if all of the tasting dishes or my main meal (bibimpap) was MSG laden but I really had a reaction, as did my colleague who had a vegetable soup.... More

My wife and I tried Korean for the first time, and it was a fabulous experience. The ambiance is quite nice, and the food was just awesome. The staffs are all very helpful, guiding you through the menu and the eating methods. Highly recommended. Of course, it is expensive considering Dhaka standard.

When dining at a restaurant, it's not just about the food but rather the overall experience. Three friends and myself went there for dinner and we chose a number of items from an extensive menu. The beef bulgogi and snow fish were very good! However, when it came to service, the servers really are the downfall. They tried selling us... More

We live in Dhaka and have visited Goong nearly once per month. Hands down, this is our favorite restaurant. Best Bulgogi BBQ, consistently attentive service, and our kids love the toy room! When the owner comes by to say hello, we really feel well taken care of. Try different rooms each visit for a change.

I have had meals before in this restaurant and whenever I am traveling in Bangladesh and feel like having Korean food, I choose no other destination than `Goong the Castle'. The restaurant serves authentic Korean food and has the most courteous staff I have seen in any restaurant in Bangladesh. Do try the Beef Bulgogi BBQ, Sauteed Seafood and Kimchi... More

Well, this restaurant is mild furnitured and decorated. It feels like a run down place but be assured the food are good. Its tasty and authentic as it could get in Dhaka. The price is as per Dhaka standard( every restaurant in Dhaka is expensive), but the quality of food is good. Waiters are offer good service, so don't forget... More

This restaurant changed its name to Goong the Castle, because a few doors down another restaurant opened with the same name of Dae Jang Geum! So, take note that the Korean restaurant with the big wooden gate is the real top Korean place in Dhaka. We enjoyed several meals here, and it's widely thought of by expats as the #1... More
