One of the recommanded asian food restaurant in Tana. It doesn't feel and look very malagasy but the meals are excellent value and a definite must if you're both hungry and asian food lover.

It is always a MUST to go to this little Korean Restaurant to have dinner while you stay at town. From outside of the road you should give yourself a push to go inside, but when you have been once inside and had your dinner there you will never miss it to go again... The food is always excellent and very delicious.

Wow... This place has a very unassuming (even off-putting) exterior, but inside it is surprisingly charming.

I went with my partner on a Thursday night at 20:00 and to our surprise the restaurant was practically full with a mixture of Malagasy, East Asian and European clientele.

The menu is just as you'd expect from a Korean restaurant anywhere in the World and the tastes were very authentic. Better than some of the Korean food I've had in the UK and on a par with food I've had in Ktown in LA. The tables even have burners for the BBQ dishes! You will forget that you're in Madagascar...

We had one starter, two mains and soft drinks and paid 66,000 Ariari. On the more expensive side for Madagascar but good value when thinking in international terms.

Our Malagasy waiter confirmed that the proprietor is Korean and he explained that the are over a hundred Koreans in Madagascar, many of them missionaries. It's a small world indeed!

In short, I'd highly recommend Arirang for something different during your stay in Tana. Whilst Madagascar's excellent French fusion cuisine is not to be sniffed at, Arirang was a delightful change after a few weeks of filet de zébu.

Passed it multiple times, the restaurant does not have its own parking. But finally I found a spot nearby and decided to have dinner. The interior causes mixed feelings: the floor and lower part of the walls is light grey wood - gives you a Mexx store feeling; when you look up it is Versalles style wallpapers that fall off here and there; the tables are standard for the BBQ type restaurants wit built in gas stoves. The menu design looks simple but professional - a description of the dishes and a picture (very helpful); the selection is quite right - not too few, not too many dishes. Prices are above average in Tana. But when the food arrived (I ordered soup with seafood and BBQ dish) I forgot about everything - wow, it was good. Looking forward to coming back.
