Now i eat out a lot. I mean a lot. Went to this place after hearing so many friends talking abt it. After eating here I can conclude that the owner is very smart by not putting pork or lard as an ingredient. Bammmm it becomes pork free and the Malays eat here. Truth be told the food is somewhere...

It has been a year I'm not coming to this restaurant. Previously, they operate at their house at Jalan Dapat, nowadays they move to shop lot and have more proper setup for restaurant (at Jalan Kolam Air). During their operation at their house, the last time I visit, I don't really like the latest maid they have. So unprofessional and... More

I think the resaurant have moved to a new address. The new store is not at the house but at a Business Lot near the stadium. I 've visited South Korea before and I could say that the price offered by the restaurant for halal korean food is quite cheap. I also have tried other korean restaurants in Malaysia (Dubuyo,...

This is the only halal korean restaurant in JB for yearsss now. The menu is still the same. Every time i went there the bachan i get is lesser. I wish they will improve their menu selection. Looking forward to have halal BBQ in future.

Food was great service was great.. But the price is a bit high... Compare to other korean restaurant. But i think if they want to put price like that they should serve it like how it used to be in korea. Such as banchan set for each person. Or each main dishes.. And bulgogi in a hot plate...

I went there trice with my bunch of friends. This restaurant operates in an old banglow. The foods are a bit pricey but the taste is quiet decent for a korean food. The only dish that I enjoy eating here is their Unagi Grill.

Korean House isn't really that easy to find unless using google map. It is located in a housing area not far from the clock tower and Thistle hotel. Good Korean food, nice portions, good service at okay prices. Highly recommended

Lady boss was the only one serving us. She cooked, prepared the meals and served us all by herself. Lots of side dishes and nice home cooked meals.
