Joah Korean Restaurant on Raffles Place in Singapore’s Chinatown is home to hot, fresh Korean food in a chilled, canteen-style environment. Formerly known as Gangnam Korean BBQ Restaurant, and recently given a serious facelift to become the Joah, the Korean team behind this much-loved local are doing great things in limited space to showcase the flavours of the Korean peninsula, particularly spicy chicken dishes and lashings of kimchi (a classic palate cleanser) to boot.
Joah Korean Restaurant has taken all the elements that made Gangnam Korean BBQ Restaurant popular and messed it together with a fresher, chicer look to reinvigorate their dining space. The menu is populated with classic Korean favourites (bibimbap, dak galbi, mung bean pancakes, and naturally kimchi, make up the bulk of the restaurant’s most popular dishes). With food which leans heavily to the Korean-comfort side of things, Joah’s Chinatown location on Raffles Place is popular with Singapore’s tourists and locals alike.
What sets Joah Korean Restaurant apart from it’s Chinatown competitors is its commitment to preserving the classic flavours of traditional Korean food by cooking them the authentic way: your food is going to be fried up to orders – there’s no shortcuts taken here! Raffles Place isn’t well know for relaxed, local eateries, and that’s something that Joah Korean Restaurant does so well; the food is excellent, but the relaxed, canteen-style dining room encourages diners to sit, stay and pick their way through the menu of classic Korean flavours.
Had already been there a handful of times. Great food and quick service. Also it was really empty which was great for us but quite a shame for them.
Great service. Managed to get the lunch special - ginseng chicken. Usually sold out by noon ! So very happy. As always - great service rendered by the restaurant captain .
Nice authentic Korean food with good service. Will return again.
