About us

The “Crazy Korean” company fermented in the back of our minds, like a good batch of kimchi, for a good few years. In July 2017 it was finally the right time to share it with the good people of Durban.

KJ Lee arrived in South Africa in 2005, dragged by his Durban born wife Natasha Lee and their two gorgeous sons, after they had lived in Korea for a number of years.  They had both been dying to introduce Korean food and culture to South Africans for many years and are so excited to finally be able to do so in 2017.

“Crazy Korean aims to introduce Korean food and culture to the Southern African Continent in a fun and creative way and to be the number one supplier of Korean food in the region”

Fast forward….. very excitedly after 6 months of selling our food at markets and events, we opened our Crazy Korean Restaurant and Guesthouse at 23 The Promenade, GlenAshley. Now after two and a half years, it is time to move. Unfortunaly the Coronavirus Pandemic, meant that we needed to pivot and adapt to the very unsure conditions, the restaurant and accomodation establishments found themselves in.

We are excited to be opening a takeaway shop in the heart of Durban North and would like to thank those that loyaloly supported us during lockdown and now hopefully in our journey ahead! We look forward to serving up deliicous Korean dishes and awesome Ready to Cook meals to take home.
