I eat here very often as it is conveniently located next to the University of Kentucky campus. The food is always excellent. The Kimchi is incredible!

Four different dinners, and everything was good, and oh-so-reasonable! Service was great; atmosphere was comfortable and cheerful. At dinnertime, it might be easier to park, being as this is right next to University of Kentucky campus.

This restaurant is on the edge of the University of Kentucky campus and serves excellent Korean food. They serve the best California roll I have ever had.

Night out around UK campus and found this place. We tried a range of dishes; shrimp tempura, crunchy roll and Bi Bim Bap. All were good. The soup was very flavorful also. Service was good - 2 servers they did not always know what each had brought to the table so we had to ask for soy sauce. Small place... More

I went here with a Korean friend. I have had very little experience with Korean food but this was very good. I have no idea if it is authentic, but I liked it. The kimchi was excellent and I asked for extra which they gladly provided. I had the Korean bbq which was very good and came with soup and... More

I eat here probably once a month. The food is really good. I always get the Beef Bulgogi (Korean BBQ) and love it. Their kimchi is the best I have every had!

I have been to Han Woo Ri many times and have always had a great experience. The atmosphere is very relaxed and homey - I feel more like I'm dining at someone's house rather than a restaurant. Menu is not extensive, but everything I've tried is great, especially the sushi. They have my favorite shrimp tempura roll in Lexington. Service... More

My wife and I ate at Han Woo Riafter reading a positive review in a local paper and the place exceeded our expectations. The atmosphere is very casual and the guy running the place is extremely friendly, making sure we were well taken-care-of without bothering us. We started off with the dumplings, which were delicious. My wife ordered the Dol... More
