Service in a Korean restaurant doesn't get any better than the Daorae in Melaka. Usually, waiters get stingy with the side dishes. But no, not in Daorae Melaka. They keep offering to replenish the dishes!

I come here often for lunch or dinner with the family whenever we feel like eating Korean. For BBQ, we usually order samgyupsal (pork belly), marinated sweet soy pork and a spicy pork. Price for each is around RM30. We don't go for beef because it's too pricy.

It has been quite a while since I have met such good combination of efficient service, courteous staff and excellent food. The staff are helpful and even help to cook for us as well as providing tips on what goes with what sauces. Awesome !

Was looking for a nice korean bbq place in Melaka and found this Jem. They only open for dinner from 530pm, so we had to wait cos we were there early. Location is right beside Hatten Hotel. Like most Korean Places they serve many side dishes. My Wife and myself had the marinated Beef rib (65rm), marinated Pork Rib (35rm) and washed it down with 2 beers + soju(25rm), prices we felt were very reasonable for the quality of the meat (and compared to the over-priced Korean restaurants in singapore). The difference between this and many others we tried in Singapore and even in Seoul was the Service, Each time we finished the side dishes, the waiters will politely come over and offer to replenish for us immediately, like most korean bbq places, the waiters will cook the meat for you over charcoal grill. Each time the meat was cooked, they will immediately change the grill as well, so it doenst look burnt. A must try if you want something other than Peranakan food in Melaka town.

The location was convenient, minutes walk from Hatten hotel or Equatoria hotel. And atmosphere is excelent. Like most authentic Korean restaurant, they serve free flow of appetizer, so we just ordered main couse for each person: seasoned pork rib bbq, seasoned pork belly bbq, cold noodle, seafood noodle and beef rib soup. The bbq was served by restaurant staff, tasted good, only regreted no garlic and cucumber along with lettuce wrap. The cold noodle was a spot light, the use of wasabi instead of galic was brilliant. Seafood noodle was a bit salty and the clamp over cooked. Beef rib suop was good and my mother in law enjoyed it. The appetizers tasted even better than some main course, they had: spinach, beansprouts, bean curd (fresh, dry and deep fried), miso soup, seasoned cabage, sour radish, spring onion,  salad... we ordered some more spring onion but could finish more, becasue the restaurant owner was very hospitable and offered our kids free steamed egg and carrot pancake. And the after diner fruit (water melon) also provided. We were more than full, thanks to his kindness. The staff was also warm and nice, they  treat kids well and gave them some lollipop. All of us had a great time and very satisfied with the food and service. And our final bill was only RM138. We definitely will come again.
