Located close to Chicken Coop, Han Cook Korean Restaurant is a great place to enjoy Korean food. The portion size of the dishes reflects the practice that tends to be typical in Korea, where dishes are shared among friends. Korean side dishes are also served alongside the main dishes. One of the most notable served during our visit was made using konnyaku, a jelly-like food made from the corm of the konjac plant.

Han Cook's Sweet and Sour Pork is the Korean take of the Chinese dish of the same name, with the sauce having a less sour taste compared to its Chinese counterpart. The chunks of pork were of a generous size and the crisp coating complemented the flesh well.

One of the stir-fried dishes on the menu, the octopus in their Stir-fried Spicy Octopus had a bit of chewy texture with the spicy sauce it was cooked in delivering a delightful spicy flavour that was not too potent. The dish also had pieces of cabbage to provide contrast to the octopus. Served with the dish is a bowl of rice, making it a complete meal for one.

The Seafood Pancake served here is of the thicker variety, with a greater amount of batter to give it a fluffier texture, compared to the thin version that we had at Sushi Gallery. It also had a good quantity of seafood to give the pancake the meaty texture that makes it enjoyable to eat. Accompanying the dish was some soy sauce that the pancake can be dipped in to give a bit of salty taste.

The décor of the restaurant is simple and unpretentious, giving the place a casual and comfortable feel. It is a good location for sharing a meal or snack with friends and family. Parking is very convenient with the carpark in front of the restaurant offering a decent amount of parking space.
