I found this place average and with limited variety. I ordered a tofu soup which wasn't that great. I prefer Joon Ko Restaurant in Wan Chai - it has a better menu and the food is better. Even the side dishes at Joon Ko is better and they provide more dishes. This place is just hyped!

If you ask anyone in Hong Kong for a Korean restaurant, they will probably tell you about Arirang. It's an average Korean barbecue. To be honest, there are several smaller Korean restaurants that have significantly better quality of food - at a price that makes more sense. This is not to say the food in Arirang is bad, but it...

This restaurant has moved from Times Square to Wan Chai. The location is a little in between two MRT stations. I have been eating there for over 10 years now, and had always liked their food. But this last visit was a big disappointment because of the food quality. The appetisers are no longer of mentionable quality. I ordered a... More

I so much wanted to rate this restaurant, I really did. I virtually twisted my wife's arm to take the MTR to Wan Chai and walk the 10-15 minutes to the restaurant. "You'll enjoy the Korean food there", I told her. Big mistake! Great Korean food certainly exists, but this isn't it. The meat and fish BBQs (cook at the... More

Absolutely delicious food I found today at this restaurant. Being selective for vegetarian dishes did not prevent me from having an amazing choice of never had before Korean dishes . The pancakes .and the tofu were superb, the special sauces made the taste even better, what I Also liked was iced ginger tea with pine nuts !!! Surely going to... More

This place was highly recommended by a number of friends. Finally had a chance to have lunch there recently, and agree with them all! The menu was extensive. We ordered a bunch of meats to barbeque at our table, along with some salad and fried prawns. Everything was great... the meat was of very good quality. We also got some... More

With my wife being a vegetarian and me not so inclined, we try to look for places that can satisfy both our palates. Arirang has been in Hk for many years and recently moved to a new location that is not so easy to get to. Despite this, the food is as good as ever. Try the Kimchi stone pot... More

I have lived in Korea for many years and never had Korean good as delicious as that in Arirang. Being a vegetarian Korean cuisine is not exactly for me, but the selection, and taste of vegetarian food in Arirang is brilliant. One of my favourite restaurants. Highly recommended. Try the Pah Jeon, Dooboo Joerim, and Vegetarian Kimchi Bimbimpap. All very... More

Amazing food. Friendly service. If this isn't a vote of confidence, I dunno what is: my immediate family and I had been going there since shortly after they first moved to Hong Kong (over 20 years ago), and until the last of us left (a year ago, though whenever we go back, it's one of the first places we visit)....
