About us

The “Crazy Korean” company has been fermenting in the back of our minds, like a good batch of kimchi, for a few years. It is now 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 have 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 together with renown chef extraordinaire Mr Lim!

“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 at the Oceans23 Guesthouse, now under our management, as a Durban Korean Guesthouse, 23 The Promenade, GlenAshley. Come for lunch or dinner and if you have friends visiting from out of town who need a place to stay they can experience Korean hospitality and Durban warmth with awesome seaside rooms.
