We ate here on a Monday and were the only people in there. Odd place with a TV showing (Korean?) programmes. We had the set meal for 2 which consisted of little starters of vegetables-including some kimchee-, dumplings, BBQ beef and a hot pot. The dumplings were tasty-a little greasy but not too much. The BBQ they can do at... More

I am an Asian expat here in Abu Dhabi, so the taste of my continent always calls out my name. Taste of Korea gave me... More

There are few Korean restaurants in Abu Dhabi, and for me Taste of Korea is no. 1. All the dishes are yummy. The staff are attentive. The private/smoking room is a great fun if you go with group of fan and grill your own food. Wish it is cheaper tho. :)

This was my best Korean restaurant in Abu Dhabi, I ate there many times, and it never disappointed me. the best dish was the grilled ribs, and ask them to grill it on the table, as its really fun to do.

We stayed at the Eclipse and thought we would try this restaurant and were not disappointed. We had never eaten Korean food before and asked the waitress for her recommendations. We had a set BBQ meal for 2 with another seafood dish. The food was delicious and fresh and plentiful. The service was excellent. We were pleased we tried this... More

Read about this on the web and thought that we must give it a try...so came here to have business lunch with a colleague. We had spicy seafood noodle and seafood pancake and several appetisers like kim chi, peanuts, sea weed, & pickles, etc... All tasted great. I think more Singaporean or Malaysian frequent this establishment than Korean though. The... More

Good food, shabby service with themed surrounding in the middle of Abu Dhabi City. Had seafood pancakes which were pretty tasty.. Will return whenever feel like Korean

Full House by Rain and Song Hye Kyo was the first Korean telenovela that I have watched and loved. Since that telenovela, I have been fascinated and deeply in love with everything Korean, especially their food. The only authentic Korean restaurant that we have been to here in Abu Dhabi was Hankook Restaurant in Muroor, Abu Dhabi. Coincidentally, while we... More
