We went to @crazy_korean_sa yesterday. We were blown away. This is a quaint little restaurant that is cranking out big authentic Korean flavors. The owner, KJ, was at the Kloof restaurant. He was so friendly and attentive. I made a joke about drinking beer with Korean fried chicken and he shared one if his own beers with me. If you are in Durban and are looking for authentic Korean food, look no further than Crazy Korean. We has a few of the small dishes and the amazing chicken. Next time we will try the table side grilled pork belly #samgyeopsal. The kimchi was so flavourful and delicious.

This popular specialist restaurant has sadly fallen victim of Corona -19 and has closed but KL was certainly not beaten and they have, since April, been operating a clever take away concept- prepared meals for home cooking - to tide them over – they have now relocated to a shop premises at Broadway in central Durban North – there is no sit down area but their delicious takeaway food is ready to eat - try sticky chicken its the best in town

In these times takeaway is the way to go – mixed views on how the food ‘travelled’ we had the Veg Pancake which is always good and Sticky Chicken which was on the chewy side – lots of special offers – the enthusiastic management are a pleasure to deal with

This small restaurant is very authentic and they serve generous portions. Do not be tempted to over order. This ensured the meal was excellent value for money and a proper Korean experience (even with over ordering). The wait staff are not great but it never impacted on the outing. The owner is hands on and passionate about bringing Korea to Durban. Definitely try it and I will be going back, I do advise to book in advance.

Being my wife's birthday, we decided to have dinner at the crazy korean. The meals were well prepared. KJ the owner is hands on and makes sure that the diners are comfortable. Having eaten Korean cuisine in Korea, this was a comparable experience.

After watching the series Let’s eat on Netflix,I was craving Korean food. Although we have never tried Korean food before,being the adventurous sort,hubby and I tried Crazy Korean for lunch on a Saturday. The view from our balcony table was enough to make us imagine having lunch in another country. The waitress was helpful in suggesting options for us first timers,who don’t eat beef and pork. The food and the experience was every bit as delightful as the series suggested eating Korean food would be like. I will definitely go back again and again and again. Remember to take the suggestions offered seriously.

Reading all the reviews on social media, I was excited to visit this place. The waiters have very less briefing on the menu, they have a habit of standing and only service the table they allocated. Not sure if this is a norm? The food was average. I must inform one, if they have a pallete for sweet food then go ahead. We ordered 4 dishes, 3 of which were sweet. 2 starters and 2 mains with one cool drink R600. Would not mind paying for food that I enjoyed. Sorry I give this a thumbs down. Would not return.

KJ and his team have created an authentic Korean restaurant in the suburbs of Durban. They have all of the Korean standards (galbi, bulgogi, Korean pancake (jeon), soups, bibimbap served in individual dishes, and many others, including ban-chan side dishes. Next time I return KJ promised to make yuk-hoe, the famous Korean version of steak tartar. Very high quality at very reasonable price, with very professional staff and good service.

– fairly new on the block a family run specialty restaurant with some great food options – centered around the Korean custom of sharing a meal many options are set menus for two or more with the food placed central on table / help yourself basis – most options are however available on an a la carte menu I particularly enjoyed the seafood and spring onion pancake and the sticky chicken house favorite – you need to brush up on your skills as chopsticks are encouraged – nice ambiance upstairs with a wide deck – it was a balmy evening and we sat outside listening to the crashing surf on the beach opposite enjoying both the super food and the BYO wine (they are not licensed) we have been there twice in 10 days which says a lot as I like to vary my eating out

We heard and read about Crazy Korean. From booking to leaving the restaurant it was an joy for us. The car guard made sure we were fine. Then the waitresses welcomed us with smiles. KJ made an effort to explain the whole experience with passion in a humble and respectful way. We chose menus 2 & 5. The flavors were fresh, flovoursome and you can taste it food was made with care. We noticed a number of Korean families which is evidence that the food was authentic Korean. The orange slices and grapes was a refreshing end to the meal. Thank you all. We will defenately be back.

My niece is so much into the Korean culture that for her birthday dinner she booked this restaurant for our family. Well, we were pleasantly surprized! A quaint restaurant with hospitable, kind and friendly staff and KJ being especially warm and welcoming. We shared menus 1 & 2 and the deliciously sticky chicken breasts, “Dak Gang-jeong.” The food was exquisite and fresh! I am looking forward to sharing the other options on the menu sometime soon. Kam-sa-ham-ni-da Crazy Korean for a great meal!
