There are only 2 or 3 Korean restaurants in Abu Dhabi, and this is one of those we frequently go to that never fails. it's nothing fancy at all, and others might get turned off by it, but food is quite good, quick service and relatively cheap. We usually book a "room" to grill the BBQ with friends, so ti's quite communal and fun. I'm not saying its the Best Korean, but it is Value for Money if you're craving a cheap neighorbood-type Korean food.

This humble Korean restaurant located off Defence Road is authentic as it gets outside Korea. The restaurant setting reminded me of the time I spent working in Asan, a town located about 100km from Seoul, a few years back. The restaurant food are good, try the stews and ginseng chicken soup.

Went to Hankook today, together with our children. The welcome was friendly, and the food tasty. Dhs 190 for a stew, a mixed rice, a pancake and starters.

Discovered this restaurant after seeing friend's photos in Facebook.

Spicy seafood stew was excellent but the rest of the dishes we ordered were perhaps not meeting our palette. However, I do believe the food served there is authentic. I would not however recommend the Korean Mixed Rice, grilled duck or the Korean tea.

Would not mind going there again to try their other dishes but I think sticking to the stew is probably best.

The environment is not the best; sitting on the floor may be uncomfortable for some people. The enclosed room is rather spacious but not having any range-hood while having the grills and stew boiling makes your clothing stinks of food after your visit to the restaurant. However, there are some but limited open area sitting which one can opt for.

Food is good. You may feel the real Korean restraunt atmosphere by 'cooking your own beef', but sitting on the wooden floor until you finish your meal may cause some people backache!
