“Ample portions”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2014

The restaurant is double-fronted, and easy walking distance from the main bus station or Al Wahda Mall. The menu is partly illustrated to those new to Korean food. Side rooms where there are traditional low tables are available. The portions are ample, as are the side dishes of kimchi.

“Felt like I'm in Korea ...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2013

A bit tricky to find... But worth the travel time.. Just 5 mins walk from Al Wahda Mall.

Greeted very warm by the waitress, asked if we would like to dine in the restaurant or in one of their private rooms (no xtra charge) , we opted for the second choice ;)

Rooms are designed very authentic with BBQ in the middle of the table, while ou are seated on the floor.

We ordered Spicy beef soup, beef bibimbap and kimchi fried rice (which is not on the menu, but the waitress was very flexible).

Food arrived after 15 mins, and was fresh, and very tasty. Been to Seoul and tied a lot of different korean restaurants, this is the closest ou can get outside Korea ! All ingredients were fresh and perfectly cooked.

Service very attentive and kind. Great value for money. Paid around 150 AED for the two of us.

Will be back !!!

“Authentic Korean local”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2013 via mobile

If you fancy a cheap, quick, quiet but authentic Korean meal in homely surroundings, you can't go wrong with Hankook. There are private dining rooms for groups and some amazingly pretty waitresses. Highly recommended.

“Hole in the Wall, good stuff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2012

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.

“Authentic Korean food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2012

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.
