Little did I know that a somewhat quiet square housed this lovely Korean eatery. I've been to quite a number of Korean eateries in the city and if I have to compare then I have to say that this place is hands down a win, price wise. Their portion and taste is authentically Korean and is definitely your money's worth.... More

A quiet place and frequented by Koreans in need of home Food Fast service, clean and good hearty dishes Wide selection of Korean favorites The hot pots are a delight and pork rich broths warm a wet night Reasonably priced with some stellar posher dishes Recommended

I love their kimchi soup and Kimchi fried rice.... The price for the meal is very cheap and affordable for most of the student like me. Must try when visit to Kota Kinabalu. You can take away their kimchi too...

Serving Fair to average Korean food only. Nothing spectacular with set meals menu only. The place is conveniently located downstairs of an apartment block.

Out of town but traffic manageable , clean healthy food , Korean staff seem nervous but friendly and helpful. Being a multicultural person and having had Korean Students live and home stay at my house in Australia , it was nice to reminisce . Sabah / Borneo - Malaysia has been a rewarding visit. I recommend others to enjoy.

Though it's not in the town centre but it's worth a try since the food is reasonable for an authentic Korean taste. There are a lot of dishes to try on especially the beef noodle soup and their kimchi..

I get to know 'Hi Seoul Korean Restaurant' from TripAdvisor reviews. The server recommended us to try the set meals as we cannot handle spicy food. We had the braised beef ribs which is very tender but not falling apart. The stir fried potato noodles was pleasant to eat. I left behind my reading glasses and later retrieve it back... More
