Food was great service was great.. But the price is a bit high... Compare to other korean restaurant. But i think if they want to put price like that they should serve it like how it used to be in korea. Such as banchan set for each person. Or each main dishes.. And bulgogi in a hot plate... Jjigae in... More

I went there trice with my bunch of friends. This restaurant operates in an old banglow. The foods are a bit pricey but the taste is quiet decent for a korean food. The only dish that I enjoy eating here is their Unagi Grill.

Korean House isn't really that easy to find unless using google map. It is located in a housing area not far from the clock tower and Thistle hotel. Good Korean food, nice portions, good service at okay prices. Highly recommended

Lady boss was the only one serving us. She cooked, prepared the meals and served us all by herself. Lots of side dishes and nice home cooked meals.

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
