Having recently gotten into shape I was a bit nervous going to Tonga where most of the population is overweight. The bibimbap is tasty and filling without being too expensive. The owner is lovely but watch out for the Tongan waitress who often pretends she doesn't hear what you have said and orders extra. This happened to me and another friend on separate occasions. Would highly recommend but bear this in mind.

We went for dinner at Korea house after a day on pangiamoto island. The service was great, and the food was pretty good. I know not all ingredients are available in Tonga all the time, so they definitely did well with what they have available. We tried most of the menu items and there wasn't a bite left on any of the plates, so a successful dinner was had! The prices were good as well, as the group of us only paid about 30 patanga each, and we had the table covered with dishes. I would definitely recommend Korea house if you want a nice, filling, tasty dinner or if you're craving a bit of Korean food (as I was!) I did not expect to get Korean food in Tonga, but I was pleasantly surprised!

This place was a lifesaver in Tonga - especially for us vegetarians. The food was not only delicious and plentiful, but also inexpensive and conveniently located across from the pier. If you're looking for something different from the typical Tongan dish - something with spice, flavor, and variety - then check this place out! Friendly Korean owners, quick service, and - perhaps most importantly - open on a Sunday! (when most everything in Tonga is closed for business)

Sandwiches, chicken dishes and fish and chips are the common food you will find in Nuku alofa. but if you want something different, something to tickle and spice up your palate, head to the Korean House by the waterfront in Vuna Road. The spicy pork soup (cannot remember the name now) served with rice and all those pickled vegetables hit their marks. Walked out very happy from that joint. But here is a reminder, Sunday, the religious rest day is strictly observed here in Tonga, no commercial activities, so remember to come anytime except sunday.
