We used to go there every weekends but now that we found out the food is made by the maids and it tasted quite cheap compared in the past where the lady boss cook and prepare the food herself.

A bit difficult to find but a known name among the Korean community in Johor. Restaurant is also known as South Gate Restaurant. Used to be run by both the proprietress and her husband (who has since passed away) and is situated in a residential house that's been converted to a rather cozy restaurant. There's a reasonable variety of dishes... More

We stumbled upon this restaurant on a weekday afternoon by chance. The place is empty and quiet when we walked in. Everything about this place spells out cosy and warmth from the deco, lights, just like the friendly ahjumma that greeted us in simple English. Menu is limited and priced slightly higher but the food portion is more than enough... More

I found this cosy lil restaurant a few years back and was pleasantly surprised a the authenticity of the place ( picture a real life ahjumma greeting u at the door..., can't get any authentic than that for me...) and the food was exquisitely original. Love it to bits! I have to admit it can get a little pricey, but... More

Well, I limit my comparison to the scope of underground restaurant in Malaysia as it is unfair to compare an apple (underground restaurant) to an orange (formal restaurant). In terms of interior decoration, it was visually comfortable enough to disguise itself as a private dining restaurant. The choices in menu were limited and the price tag may seem like having...
