Gahyo Restaurant (SCBD)

My friend has been telling me how delicious is the Korean food at Gahyo restaurant in the SCBD Jakarta area but I'd never a chance to try it. Thus, you can imagine, how enthusiastic I was when a few food bloggers and I received an invitation directly from Gahyo to have a food tasting last Monday :)

No doubt that my friend was telling me the truth! I really enjoyed the overwhelm delicious authentic Korean food being served at Gahyo. Gahyo has been established since 2005 in SCBD Jakarta and so far, it has received three awards as "The Best Korean Restaurant in Jakarta" from Jakarta Java Kini Magazine in three consecutive years (2005, 2007 and 2008). Besides, Gahyo has opened another branch since 2008 in Kelapa Gading area.
