Arirang Australia - Our Story

Established by the Yu family in 1999, Arirang is a multi-faceted Korean food and restaurant business which has been proudly serving the WA community for over 15 years.

From humble beginnings Arirang started as a restaurant in the heart of Perth on Barrack St, laying claim to the first Korean restaurant in Perth. The restaurant is still going strong and is now part of the foundation of the Perth CBD. Since then Arirang has grown into a food court franchise, cafe and catering provider and a retail supplier of quality Korean food products. Our passion for all this Korea is as strong as ever and Arirang is positioned to grow further and seek new and exciting opportunities to provide quality Korean food to Australians.

Bibimbap Food Court Franchise

Arirang Australia currently operates 5 food court franchise businesses located at Carousel, Belmont Forum, Morley Galleria, Raine Square and now Edith Cowan University Campus in Joondalup. The food court business is centred around the signature Korean dish of Bibimbap and provides shoppers with a tasty, healthy and interesting alternative to the standard food court fare.

So what exactly is Bibimbap? well bibim means “mixed” and bap means “rice”. Basically, it’s a one-bowl wonder of steamed rice, sautéed vegetables and a fried egg, all mixed up together with a healthy serve of Gochujang – Korean chilli paste! In the Korean household, it’s a traditional way of using up day-old rice and leftovers but don’t worry; our meats and vegetables are prepared on site daily, with a qualified chef on staff to prepare our soups and noodle dishes.
