“Excellence in food quality and service!”
Reviewed April 4, 2014 via mobile

Went to Haroo with my girlfriend. Very warm and genuine welcome by an old couple, seemed to be really interested of our well being! Good start.

We ate kimchi and spring rolls to start, Bokeum (veggies and meat in a korean chili sauce) with beef and chicken for main. Spring rolls were nothing special, but still as tasty as spring rolls come! Kimchi was probably the best kimchi we ever tasted (4th time we ate it)! And the bokeum was heavenly. I myself had it with beef and it was tender and well cooked. The spices were in the right balance, so that you could feel the burn, but it didn't cover up the flavor of rest of the food.

Suprise vanilla ice cream was offered us, for free, after the meal! One small ball of heaven.

Only negative would be the price. Not a big minus, but still worth mentioning. Our food + water cost 100myr, about 22€. Pretty expensive compared to the local eateries, but still two times cheaper than our only korean restaurant back home in Finland. And this was much better too!

Definately will go again.

“First time went there”
Reviewed March 25, 2014

Bosses are very warm and affable. From time to time ask us food okay, I feel great restaurants, unique flavor. Not only that, they are always a smile on his face. South Korean family super good service attitude. Beautifully! ! Even if there are service charges are worth giving.
Remember to taste ah!

“First time diners”
Reviewed February 28, 2014 via mobile

We hadn't previously tried or even thought of visiting a Korean restaurant. Then we wandered to Haroo - just off the cacophony of Pantai Cenang's main strip - and into a bonanza for our taste buds.
We hadn't a clue what to order so took our lead from the proprietor. Her suggestions and service were so good that we are going back tomorrow night.

“Healthy tasty food and a very guestfree reception”
Reviewed February 28, 2014

Haroo restaurant is located central across to Underwater world, in a little street away from the mainstreet so you can enjoy your dinner in peace. The reception is really very warm and friendly, the service very quick and the food very tastefull, healthy and fresh. It is also recommended For vegeterians as they have adapted menu for vegeterians. The price is similar to other restaurants, around 30 rm for a main course. In the end they offered a small desert, something that we hadn't had before in other restaurants. I recommand to visit Haroo if you are in the neighbourhood, it is less visible because it is not located on he mainroad but very easy to find (indicated on a panel).
