“Authentic korean family run restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2013

This is my (almost) weekly Sunday lunch place. It's run by a Korean family, Mr Kim Hong Jin and family. The menu is not extensive, but I've been them so many times I can't count and the service is always good. Ahjumma sometimes (quite often) bestows us free pancakes and hot steamed eggs.

I love their side dishes here, it taste so way better than a lot of local korean restaurants around Klang Valley. It has a home-cooked rustic taste. Prices are very very reasonable too. For just RM15 you can get yourself a kimchi-chigae with rice and something like 5 side dishes. Tea is free and refillable. I usually get a complimentary Ginger Cinnamon tea to wash down all the spiciness.

My favourite bbq is their original flavoured pork belly. Trust me it is the best and well priced at RM25 for 2 large slices (1 serving). Min order of two BBQ sets for them to start the fire for you. Normally, the servers cook your meat away from you, hence your clothes and hair won't stink up.

Another favourite is the RM48 pan-fried squid, octopus, pork and vegetable spicy concoction. It is HUGE, feeds min 2. You can eat this with a lot of rice, and comes with side dishes too.

Lunch sets are really affordable at RM9.90 for a box set onwards.

“Wonderful Korean BBQ...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2013

Love the BBQ here!! Frequent this place, and have always taken their weekend lunch sets at RM19.90 per set.

The unlimited dishes of vege were great too!

They used to be located at a ground level facing the outside of SS2. But have relocated to the row behind, to 1st floor. Same row as CIMB bank in SS2.

“Good Korean BBQ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2012

This is one of the best Korean restaurants in Petaling Jaya, the BBQ is popular, and reasonably price. Tother with BBQ they also supply a wide variety of side dishes. For BBQ, the lamb and pork both are good, but the good beef, a bit pricy. Other Korean dishes are not that good though! Just go for the BBQ!
