Located around the corner from South Cloud Kitchen in Charles Street Plaza, opposite the side entrance to David Jones, Raah Cafe specialises in serving Korean cuisine. Although it is tucked in a corner away from the main thoroughfare, this little cafe is very popular, especially during lunch hours.
The chicken in their Spicy Chicken with Rice was tender, with the sauce giving the dish a spicy taste that was not too strong. There were strips of capsicum to add a bit of sweetness to the dish. If you prefer, the dish can be ordered with noodles instead of rice.

While we would have liked more beef in the Hot Pot Bibimbap, it was still cooked just right with a good amount of flavour. An ample amount of vegetables provided a fresh element and the yolk of the fried egg added moisture when mixed into the dish. The dish is best enjoyed by adding your desired amount of chilli sauce and mixing it into all the ingredients thoroughly.

Great as a snack or as a side dish, the filling of their Fried Dumplings was juicy and was set off nicely by the slightly crisp skin. Though tasty enough on its own, dipping the dumplings into the dipping sauce provided an extra element of flavour.
Though the restaurant is fairly small in size, it still had a comfortable, casual feel. Its location in the heart of Rundle Mall is great for shoppers and university students that have a craving for Korean food.
