“Cute place and good food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2013

I've been once for lunch and once for dinner and both times I ate myself silly. The kimchee and vegetable appetizers are very good, although not the dumplings so much. The bibimbap is great! My friends also ordered a pork dish that was really good. And of course, all the banchans are delicious and I love that they're free and easily refilled if you ask for it.

On an atmosphere side note, my friends and I really enjoyed how the place is decorated as well! Really cute innovations using beer bottles and Christmas lights that you can see when you first enter and beer bottle caps to designate paths when you walk towards the outside seating.

“Korean home cooking in down town ADDIS Ababa”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2012

A korean colleague got a hakering for Kim Chee and invited me to the Hhan Kuk to sample authentic Korean food. He took over the ordering with the Korean owner and in due time a scrumptous assosrtment of asian foods began to appear. the Meat dishes were excellent and the summer Kim Chee was spot on. THe atmosphere was subdued which translates here in ADDIS to very basic but appropriate. Prices were modest. Service overseen by the owner was excellent. A very worthwhile visit.
