“Nothing to do with korean food”
Review of O mo Nim - CLOSED

This restaurant has only two korean things: the name (o mo nim = mother) and a photo of a korean woman. The food is neither korean nor japanese. The menu is written in english and japanese, no korean at all, although the names of the dishes are korean. Bulgogi is cooked on the table on a small gas grill that has seen better days. Food is ok, but nothing to write home about. Service is handled by two japanese girls who were kind and fast. The bill for two persons with two bulgogi, one small bottle of sake and one bottled mineral water was 515 Danish Kroner, approx € 75. If you have korean guests, take them to a real korean restaurant, not to this one!

I was a bit disappointed with this restaurant. We came there to get real authentic Korean food and instead, the menu, the interior and almost everything except the photo of a Korean woman and the restaurant's name - "O mo nim" meaning mother in Korean - in a traditional dress was rather Japanese. I wouldn't be that disappointed if they called it an Asian restaurant, but saying it's Korean is just not the real deal.

This is an excellent restaurant, but one that is easily misunderstood. Although it is calls itself a Korean barbeque restaurant, and it is, it is more accurately described as a Japanese style Korean barbeque restaurant. Established by a Korean born in Japan and her Japanese husband, this restaurant serves Korean barbeque every bit as good and authentic as the best barbeque or yakiniku restaurants in Japan. The mix of Japanese and Korean cultural influences in evident from the moment you walk in, as a TV tuned to a Japanese satellite station is usually on by the kitchen, and there are usually several Japanese customers chatting with the chief. The waitress as well as the chef speaks fluent Japanese. The menu also features sushi and sashimi (although they are not available everyday). In short, for an authentic Japanese style Korean barbeque (yakiniku), and a multi-cultural Northeast Asian experience, this unique and delicious restaurant is not to be missed!

Fun to have a Korean BBQ at each table. Family atmosphere. Open on Sundays. Definitely I recommend this restaurant!

Not authentic. The only authentic Korean thing about this place it's the name. A picture of a Korean woman dressed in traditional wear and the fact they serve kimchi. I ordered a number 1 and let me tell you it was not good. Portions were small and bland tasting. I had to pour the soy sauce and garlic sauce to give it flavor.
