Nashville's best Korean restaurant.
I've been to 4 different Korean restaurants in Nashville and Korea House is definitely the best. From the beginning of the meal to the end, they've got it right. There is one small dining room that is simple but decorated enough to make you feel at home. Everyone who works there is incredibly friendly and the old granny cooks love to see you enjoy their food.
Korea House's banchan (side dishes that come free with your meal) are the best I've had in Nashville. The entrees themselves are fairly priced for a Korean restaurant (i.e. higher than what you would pay at a Chinese or Vietnamese restaurant, but about on par with a meal at Japanese restaurant) and on top of that, the servings are huge and can easily be your lunch for the next day. My wife and I are vegetarians (but eat fish) and we recommend the kimchi chigae and jampong and all my meat eating friends enjoy the classic Korean bulgogi. The seafood pancake is also really good, though I've yet to eat one at any Korean restaurant that wasn't delicious.
To top it off, they have a cheap selection of American and Korean alcohol.
The waiters are always very friendly and helpful. It can be a little slow when the place is crowded, but it's a relaxed place and I've never felt like anything took unreasonably long.
Simple food done well by granny types who cook with love.. I knew nothing about Korean food and I looked at the menu with a blank expression. I chose something in the median price range and was surprised when not one but two to go boxes were brought to me. Every delicacy inside was explained and it was my meal for the next 2 days at home. Pancakes were first to go. Expensive anchovies were new to me, but were crispie and tasty. Nothing was greasy. I will return.
Good blend of chinese and korean.
Korea house has changed ownership few times in the past two years. But the newest owner is by far the best owner yet. they offer delicious side dishes coupled with generous portions from their menu..
I especially like their chinese entrees.. they are better than those offered by chinese restaurants..
This place makes no pretenses. The surroundings are simple, but what comes out of the kitchen, from the friendly server to the wonderful, home-cooked Korean specialties, are worthy of some of Nashville's nicer establishments.
Make sure you try all of the several condiments served with your dinner. They are likely to include homemade kimchee, pickled garlic and daikon radish, and my favorite, the roasted black beans. Highly recommend are the tasty and meal-sized vegetable pancakes! You'll need a to-go box for most of the meals.
