i went to this place for 6 times. since the owner is originally from korea, you'll feel like really in korea. all foods are tasty.
it has only 1 waitress, first time i came here around 2011, the waitress was really nice and helpful. but for the second time and up until the 6th times, that cheerful waitress was no more. and the last time i went there, the waitress was annoying. at 9.30 pm, she asked us to hurry since the place will be closed at 10pm. i wish i could tell the owner about her annoying waitress.

Not easy to find the location, behind Thirstle Hotel. But I believe GPS could helps. I like the atmosphere, its just silent like eating at home. Great place for family or friends gathering.

The Korean House restaurant is an actual house that has been converted into a restaurant. Well, not exactly converted. It's still literally a regular house that they've put tables and chairs in and use as a restaurant, so it gives off a slightly bizarre experience that you're eating in someone's house, but when the food arrives, you tend to forget all that.

It is one of the very few halal Korean restaurants in JB, and their menu is slightly limited. Our favourites orders are the Bul Kal-bi set (RM60-something), Bulgogi set (RM55), kimchi ramen and bibimbap.

The sets come with a whole host of Korean side dishes, all of which can be refilled once. Coupled with the meat, the sets can easily be shared between 2 (generous) or 3 (smaller appetite/female) diners. However, you might find the 6pcs small ribs for the bul kal-bi a little scant, even for 2-sharing. Nevertheless, the food is delicious.

The staff of Indonesian ladies are a friendly bunch, and very attentive. A trip to the Korean House is always a pleasant affair.. I always leave feeling satisfied and sated.
