We went there for our last night in Seoul to enjoy Korean BBQ. The servings are very big, so the set A is quite enough for 2-3 people. The service is so-so, but they try their best to accomodate foreigners. More authentic then other touristic places in the area.

We chanced upon this restaurant while shopping in Myeongdong and decided to give it a try. Despite the language barrier, the service staff was patience and tried her best to understand what we want. The meat was good and the BBQ was done just right to our liking. We ordered the Korean beef and it did not disappoint us ...... More

The food is great, nice well seasoned and juicy pork and premium beef meat is grilled to the perfection. The side dish is good. The soup is great. The server is able to speak basic english which is good. The restaurant seems small from the outside but its quite spacious, they even have more dining area at the basement. We... More

Bad service. Staff kept hard selling us more food. When we refused to order what she had recommended, we were faced with bad attitude. Meat were not marinated. Sky high prices compared to other bbq places. Overall, a terrible experience.

We tried this as it was written in one of the KTO review, thinking they will server Korean beef. Was disappointed that the beef ( except for tongue and bones) are all non Korean beef but import. Anyway, we ordered a set beef BBQ meal and food is quite satisfactory. The marinated beef is good because the marinated source is... More

The food at the restaurant we had was ok, but the service and the people working there were terrible. Rude and not interested of giving anything extra in form of a smile, kindness or awareness. Don't go there..

This place was recommended to me by the concierge at my hotel as a place that is known for its pork. I got both pork and beef, and it was cooked for me tableside (Korean BBQ style) by a waitress who spoke almost no English, but was happy to establish communication via single words and sign language, and made sure...

Neighbourhood Profile
Myeongdong / Namdaemun
Arguably Seoul’s most famous neighbourhood and undoubtedly one of its most popular, Myeongdong takes shopping and eating to new heights, with hundreds of shops, restaurants, and cafes all stacked on top of one another. The rise in popularity of Korean cosmetics, fashion, and more has made this area a must-see for visitors who come and marvel at Myeongdong’s often frenetic pace and energy. Lotte and Shinsaegae’s massive department stores are also popular draws for both Korean and luxury products. The department stores, just like Myeongdong’s streets, are crowded around the clock. Myeongdong’s many street food carts are also immensely popular for their inexpensive and quirky offerings (French-fry-encrusted corn dogs, anyone?). The neighbourhood’s popularity, as well as its close proximity to other popular sights and neighbourhoods, makes it one of Seoul’s most popular places to stay.
