Joah Korean Restaurant
About Joah Korean Restaurant
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.Go to Joah Korean Restaurant Page
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.
Very pleasant experience. Staffs were friendly and food is good. The army stew we ordered is just right. Interior Ambience is nice. Highly recommended for gathering or dating with a view.
V gd service, polite, prompt and gd food, a place where i absolutely love to go for lunch with friends. Highly recommended! Will try for dinner next time
Food was served fast and service was good. Will visit again. Portions for Side dishes should be bigger so less refilling needed. Nevertheless they were fast to refill when requested
Good and fast service, save the hassle to queue with this app
Thought would be very crowded so made reservation. Thankfully, its not crowded during dinner time:) Service was also pretty good but due to not many staffs, would have to wait a while to get their attention:x Portion may seem small but was more than enough for my mum & I😂😳 Ordered spicy pork & kimchi soup (came along with rice) as well as green tea. The taste of the tea is not very strong but matches well with the food I ordered:) Tea is free flow and same for the side dishes. Staff was kind to offer to top up the side dishes and tea after we asked to top up the tea. Side dishes was also pretty yummy especially the kimchi and the kelp😁 About $15+ per person Would prob go again:) Hope there will be more food choices like 냉면 and more😁
Initial experience was good and after advising the waiter of my reservation, his action was prompt and I was taken to a table next to the window. However, I was asked subsequently if the last person will be coming soon. I advised that my reservation was for two but was told I reserved for 4 instead. Throughout the meal, there are interruptions where waiter would come by our table to remove a chair and at the end of the meal even before we call for the bill, the waiter came by to clear our table , sending the message that we should leave. But I must commend that the food came pretty fast and taste great and price wise, it is very reasonable. Good value for money but if only they got the reservation number correct, this visit would have been a fanastri mix experience.
Went in the weekends and we experienced a very good service! Will help to refill the side dish each time we finished. Each time we have any request for example, extra bowl or a ladle for the soup their responses were very fast. Although from other reviews I saw from other post saying that their service was slow but from my experience it wasn't that way. Most probably it was because we went during the weekends.
Service was pleasant. We ordered the steam egg (2nd time having it there because it's so good), army stew (not bad but we wished the broth was thicker) and Set B for bbq meat - pork collar and pork belly (pork belly was a little tough and pork collar slightly salty if eaten without the lettuce, but overall rather flavorful). Great experience!
The food is not bad (The army stew is only so-so, but the marinated BBQ beef and pork is a must-order!). The service is also really good as the waiters and waitresses were very polite and efficient. Overall I had a pleasant meal with my friend here :)
Food and service were fantastic. The staff were attentive, and kept coming to help us stir our chicken stew as well. They offered to help us pack up our leftovers (cos we overordered) when we couldn't finish as well.
