C1 ( 2017.04.28 ) My friend who lived KK wanted to eat real Korean food and recommended this restaurant. The atmosphere was poor and old, I think. We ordered Korean Table d'hote with soju, that's great. The Korean restaurant in overseas had more sweet taste...More

Food is excellent. Ambiance is casual and quiet. Setting is in a bungalow in between a housing estate just outside the gates of Shangri-la Tanjung Aru Hotel. Run by a Korean so food is authentic.

Renowned to be the best Korean restaurant in Kota Kinabalu. Food is reasonable but pricey. Located in a residential house and public access is poor if one does not have own transport.
