Love eating here. I think it's the best Korean on the island. The owners are very welcoming and the food delicious. Clean and tidy. Could do with a touch up of paint on the walls, but the food makes up for the tired decor

Beautiful fresh Korean food. The first was a buffet for twenty people. Sashimi, Korean pancake, and other great dishes. Second time lunch with friends, dumplings and kimchi rice - both great. Lovely hosts too! A must visit.

If you like Korean style food, Frangipani is the place to go in Tonga. The location is near the centr of the business district and opens for lunch and dinner. My favorite is the Korean style raw tuna salad. For about USD 10 you get a big stack of wonderfully flavored raw tuna (essentially sashimi) with a salad base and... More

Had a yummy lunch at Frangipani. The beef bolgogi and side salads were perfect. Friendly and helpful staff. Excellent value for money. Well worth a visit if you are in Nuku'alofa.

Not knowing much about Korean food, I visited here with a group of friends and asked the owner to order!! This was a great decision - we enjoyed a great Korean meal at a reasonable price. Have since been back again!
