Han restaurant review

Metro Top 50 2018 restaurant Han in Parnell does modern Korean with polished service.

At Han, the signature barbecue dish comes out with a small charcoal brazier on which to cook your wagyu: it’s at once authentic and elegant. The restaurant is small and dark, with pools of light; the service is polished and there’s a great wine list. Barbecue aside, the menu is refined and thoughtful, featuring dishes you’d expect to find in a much more formal environment than this. Recently, we delighted in a dish of venison yukhoe (tartare) served with cashew, seaweed powder and crispy anchovies; we also loved the “military stew” featuring chorizo broth, house vegan kimchi, oxtail and sago.

What it offers Good for vegetarians / Set menu available / Free-range chicken and/or pork, wild-caught prawns and squid / Gluten-free available / Shared-plate options / Bar / Outdoor seating / Craft beer selection / Wheelchair accessible
A favourite dish Beef galbi, caramelised beetroot, grilled kimchi, pumpkin seed and gochujang sauce.
