The 5 Best Korean Restaurants in Bangkok

These range from the tender wagyu, beef bulgogi to spicy pork belly, but mixed salads and staples like Bibimbap, Kimchi Stew and Samgyetang are available as well.

2. 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 Jajangmyeon (a noodle dish topped with black bean sauce) in town. However, aside from this, their Jjamppong or spicy noodle soup is just as delicious as well as the Jjajangbap, rice mixed with Korean black bean sauce and pork.

Opening hours: Tuesday to Friday, 11:30 – 15:30, 17:00 – 20:30. Saturday to Sunday, 11:30 – 20:30 (closed Monday).

Address: 10110 Krung Thep Maha Nakhon, Bangkok, Soi Sukhumvit 63.
