The 5 Best Korean Restaurants in Bangkok

Bornga Thailand

Popular among locals and tourists alike, Bornga is the highest on our list due to its authentic Korean taste. Here, mouth-watering aromas of grilled meats fill the air. As a Korean barbecue restaurant, they serve a wide selection of meat cuts. These range from the tender ox tongue, beef bulgogi to spicy pork belly, but mixed salads and staples like Kimchi Stew, Japchae (glass noodles with stir-fried pork and vegetables), and Bibimbap (mixed rice with meat and veggies) are available as well. But best of all, each meal is affordable making them even more enticing.

Bangkok Bangjom

Located in Sukhumvit, Bangkok Bangjom is a modest but cosy Korean restaurant. Whilst their menu is relatively small, their cuisine packs a punch. In fact, they serve the best Jjajangmyeon (a noodle dish topped with black bean sauce) in town. However, aside from this, their Jjampong or spicy noodle soup is just as delicious as well as their Tang Su Yuk, sweet & sour pork.

BanJoo Korean BBQ

Founded by Injin “Lauren” Kim, Banjoo is a stylish BBQ eatery located just a short distance away from Benchasiri Park. Its menu features a fusion of Korean and Western ingredients with a variation of beef cuts such as rib-eye and wagyu. Aside from this, diners can choose from other meats such as intercostal muscle, pork belly, tiger prawn and fermented octopus. We especially love their unique Bulgogi Carbonara (Korean Beef Bulgogi served with white-cream spaghetti).
