So, I am not Korean, but I totally love good, vegetarian Korean food! I have a friend who is Korean, as well as an amazing cook, and she has moved away so the only way I get great Korean is going to Han Il Kwan when we go to Atlanta. The service is good, and the Dolsot Bibimbap and Jap... More

The Korean BBQ here was just excellent. The beef was very tender and flavorful. The staff is very friendly and service was excellent.

I was in Atlanta for the weekend and was excited to get to explore the Korean community in Atlanta while I was there. Admittedly (sadly) I don't know nearly as much about traditional Korean food as I do other cuisines but I am always excited to get to try new dishes. I found this place by recommendation of one of...

As a Korean, my expectations for Korean food is high. Having been on the road from NYC, I missed Korean food and we decided to take a chance and get Korean food. Our friend who lives in Atlanta who is a non-Korean recommended this place saying that his Korean friend said this place was authentic. The side dishes were quite... More

Probably not the best place for Korean, but it's OK. They give big portions which is characteristic of this place.

We went to Han Il Kwan for lunch recently when were passing through Atlanta. The galbi lunch boxes were not bad once we all got our orders. The seafood dish I received tasted rotten. Several servers waited on us and the one that took our original order failed to order what my wife asked for. She had to wait for... More

We had a Sunday lunch here yesterday while visiting family in ATL & really enjoyed the food. The pan chan on the table was really enjoyed by everyone (6 family members ) I noticed the waitress smiled when I asked for a fork! Everyone else at our table used the chopsticks they provided. They also kept our water glasses filled... More

I love all of the food but usually order the cold noodles in broth or shredded beef soup. It is so hard to choose. We love the rare thin sliced beef. We especially love the warm service which can get slow sometimes but they are just so nice. The side dishes are mostly good ( depends on the day) but... More

This is a very good Korean BBQ restaurant located just inside the perimeter. They have their own parking lot so parking is easy. If you want to do the Korean bbq let them know when you are being seated so they can sit you at a BBQ table. They bring the coals over and drop them in the middle of... More

Another one of Buhi's collections of restaurants, Han Il Kwan offers a variety of traditional Korean dishes that may surprise you with how good it is - I know I was a little surprised after reading all of the other reviews on Yelp. Some of my favorite items were Hae Mul Pa Jun (Korean Pancake), Dook Bae Gi Bulgogi, and... More
