Japanese Korean  restaurant Sobahn

Sobahn means ‘good’ in Korean and the food at this  Japanese Korean Restaurant Sobahn eaterie lived up to it’s name. The atmosphere in the restaurant is similar to that of a hotel buffet (we visited on a Friday) but without the high price tags attached. Our family chose to start with generous servings of miso soup and sushi at a separate counter to the buffet style main courses.

Everything was appetizing, whilst the service was friendly and helpful. Our Korean waitress spoke excellent English and it’s always reassuring when your chosen eaterie is liberally sprinkled with expats of the said cuisine. Lot’s of Oriental families were here, some of whom come regularly from Abu Dhabi !

What do you eat when you get to a Koeran Buffet?

Kimchee of course, but it’s always best to ask a regular, here’s what she suggested:


If you fancy stocking up on some ingredients to whip up a Korean storm in your kitchen then go down a flight to the Oriental Supermarket downstairs on the ground floor

    I’ve been to Sobahn once, and it was a nice place with good Korean food, but the location with SZR-view isn’t really nice. The supermarket downstairs is where I use to buy my fresh kimchi supplies:)

      Thanks for the comment, yes I haven’t been back there for a while. We’ll have to go to the one you recommended but so far!

      warmest regards,

      Thanks Malin,

      it’s fun to do and so much more genuine than all the pr stuff that is about at the moment, I did another one of a visit to The Farm nursery in Dubai, gorgeous and well priced plants and one on some South Indian cooking at home !

      Kindest regards,
