1. Korean Palace // 610 Somerset Street West

Korean Palace is known as fine Korean cuisine. They have 100+ seats in their dining room, which are all equipped with Korean BBQ grills so you feel right at home. Their pricing is completely affordable, and if you see something expensive, it's because it's meant to be split between two people. If there is something you should try, I'd recommend the appetizer JapChae. Trust me.

5. Mu Goong Hwa Garden // 376 Rideau Street

If you're coming to Mu Goong Hwa Garden, you must try the Korean BBQ. It's truly fascinating watching all your food cook for you at your own table and I highly recommend you get the combination BBQ which includes chicken, bul go gi and pork neck. It will not disappoint.

6. Le Kim Chi // 420 Preston Street

Le Kim Chi is an adorable restaurant located in Little Italy, but don't let that fool you. They have the most authentic Korean food and you'll never want to leave. If you're new to Korean food, I suggest getting the Korean Style Bento Box so you can try out a few different dishes without buying everything separately. They have great options for the Bento Boxes, but the spicy stir fried pork is unreal.

7. Bai Du // 1385 Baseline Road

Bai Du not only has amazing Korean food, but their restaurant decor will make you feel fancy AF. This is a great place to have a birthday party, and all of your friends will be super impressed. They known for their table BBQs, so if you go with a lot of people, you can try all of the options they have for that and just split them. They also have sushi, so you can have a mix of Korean and Japanese food all in a great place.

8. Hanahana // 474 Hazeldean Road

Hanahana also has Korean and Japanese food under one restaurant, which is any Asian food lovers dream tbh. Their kimchi fried rice is unbelievable, and same with their miso soup. As for their sushi, you'll definitely want to get one of the combos. Because you can try never have too much sushi.
