Haroo is opposite Underwater World along a little lane just off the main Pantai Cenang road. Nothing pretentious, manned by a friendly husband (Yohan) and wife team from the southern part of Korea. Good home cooking, with generous portions of Bibimbap (great for hungry teenagers) and a good variation of spicy and non-spicy authentic Korean dishes. No exotic stuff like... More

Served by the owners themselves. This restaurant is run by one elderly couple who serves us very well. The food tasted very authentic, not too salty or sweet to my living. Good place for a meal. They gave ice cream and omelet for free for our meals. Price is around rm30 per dish.

Haroo is tucked in a nice little corner opposite the Underwater World in Langkawi. Peaceful place for a meal. We ordered a Chicken Bugolgi, Beef Bulgogi and a Bibimbab with 3 additional bowls of rice for a family of 5. Portion was sufficient for all, and the kids absolutely love the food, though this is their first time eating Korean... More

We were very hungry driving around searching for food. Saw this place Haroo and wife decided not to search anymore and just eat at Haroo. The spicy noodle was neither spicy, salty, sour, sweet, nothing! It was totally tasteless! Not even the a bit of seafood taste!!! The service was friendly (probably due to the fact that there aren't any... More

I had the bibimbap (28rm) and bf had the beef bugolgi (30rm), and the owner super sweet and gave us 2 appetizers. We both really liked... More

We love Korean food and loved this restaurant. The owners are very sweet and welcoming. The food was very fresh, and tasty with generous servings. I loved my bimimbap which was served with lots of fresh vegies and salads. My partner really enjoyed his beef bulgogi. We also liked the kimchi. After our delicious mains we got some complimentary ice... More
