Curry Wala is now opened at Gwakji internationalising the food culture. Curry Wala adds to fish and chips at Taehee Cafe and French food will be on offer at soon-to-open Le pirate.

Curry Wala received favorable reviews from the local community. Sachin Mahajan, a visitor at the restaurant said, “It provides the closest I've had to mom's cooking since I came to Korea.”

“I wanted to provide real Indian home cooking. I will provide more food in the future and eventually I want to serve Tibetan food, but the ingredients are very hard to find”, said, Dawa, Owner of the restaurant.

Curry Wala is situated in Gwakji, Aewol-eup, just a hundred meters from the beach. The restaurant currently offers a simple set meal of chicken curry, chai tea and chapati for 10,000 won. Makgeolli shakes and lassi are also available for 5,000 won each.

Dawa, a Tibetan, lived for six years in India, says he is one of just six Tibetans in Korea - “I have met them all” - and the only in Jeju. He has clearly settled in well to local life - he has taken Korean citizenship and part from his restaurant he works as a carpenter and fishes in the local seas.

Curry Wala also doubles as an Indian cultural outlet - “We loved India so much we wanted to introduce the culture to people here,” said Ms. Kim Mina, Dawa’s wife.
