One NGO worker I’ve met termed this place “..the best Korean food I’ve found in Kathmandu.” and I think I’d have to agree. Far from the squeaking horns of the rickshaw drivers and tucked into a residential neighborhood, this asian haven has a staid and calming atmosphere that deserves pause. Devote an hour or more to lunch, possibly two or more for dinner to enjoy the food and hopefully company in one of MTK’s various dining areas. The menu is primarily in Korean, though a decent translation is provided for the rest of the world’s cultures.
The food is, in a word, authentic. There are no momos. There are no club sandwiches. There are adverts for Soju on the wall. The staff is Nepali, but the owner and her family are Korean, so sometimes a bit of finesse is required for the Dai taking your order. There is parking available somewhere on the road, though I’ve not used it.
If you need a good dose of Korean food, go to More Than Kimchi.
