Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

BBQ is average, but the experience that you have to stand and people yelling. I mean it has a very local vibe. If you don't like smoky and a bit noisy environment, I wouldn't recommend it.

First and foremost this may not be a restaurant for all travellers. It is a very different experience from anything I’ve experienced so far. So initially when entering the place (if there isn’t a wait) you will be shown to several large beef kegs types...coolers. From there you will be asked what type of selection you would like. For a couple a 150g 15k is ideal. Please note that you have to cook the meat yourself. It can be quite daunting at first but once you get the hang of it you will be fine . There are no tables or chairs so it is standing,maybe this is in place to get people to leave sooner (the wait can be quite long). Overall the meat for the price is brilliant. Some of the best BBQ we had in BBQ land. A must do for those that want to try something out of the normal comfort zone.More

Standing, Grilling, and Eating. Very Yummy! It is unique experience. Bring your own rice and kimchi. The operating hour is quite narrow. So, Check the time before you go.

This is a unique experience to try this BBQ meal. When you look at the menu, you do not have to make decision to eat what; just how many............. The beef is good and the price is better!. Of course, you need to do your...homework: they only serve beef with sauce, beer. They do not have any table or chair. Likely, they do handout bags for your personal items, to leave them on the floor. There is a grocery store at the subway station - you might want to get some stuff to compliment your beef dinner.More

We went here around 1330 on a Sunday and waited in line for about 30 minutes. The line seemed to stay about the same length throughout and it moved pretty fast. The meat is delicious and at only 15,000 krw per person it is a...good deal. We brought our own water and rice from a CU store nearby. The meat has 3 different sauces to dip in, and comes with a small bowl of green peppers to eat. You stand the entire time and have smoke from the grill right in your face but it is worth it!More

This restaurant only serves BBQ beef and drinks. There is no seats, so you have to stand during entire dining. You can buy steamed rice and Kimchi from convenient stores and bring them to go with the beef. It's awesome!

Good Korean beef. KRW15000 for 150g. Not the best Korean beef I've had but still very good. 1. Be there by 1130 for 12pm round otherwise about an hour wait. 2. Bring your own rice if you want rice with your meat

This shop is very unique in Seoul, often appears in dramas. Beef is very expensive in Korea but this BBQ shop really value for money. Be prepared: As you will stand to queue and eat, better wear a pair of comfortable shoes. And you may...need to buy drinks and instant rice at convenient stores. 不設座位的牛肋排燒烤店,以大鐵桶作餐桌加烤盤,以人頭計算每份肋排萬五韓元,還附辣醬、大蒜片沾醬和青辣椒。為同等牛排店價錢接近一半,當然缺點時站得較累;店員也會來開火、烤肉,絕不因低價格而減服務。因這種新穎潮吃和價廉物美,早已聲名大噪,如假日來還要在門外排隊等候。 TIPS: 1. 店內只賣一款食物就是牛,如想加飯或泡菜的可帶備,最方便是附近便利店的膠盒裝飯。2. 店內燒烤氣味很重,提供大膠袋給客人放手袋衣物,但如物品特多的,最好自行帶備大型膠袋,打結封口以防吸味。More

Although you need to stand and eat, the venlitation is poor, it is just amazing good for the beef. The price is $15,000 won per person, the price-to-quality is jist the no 1 in Seoul BBQ.

We were curious why people are lining up to eat at this barbeque place near our hostel so we went in and try it for ourselves. It was a unique experience. We ate standing-up while grilling and cutting the beef meats that were served. The...sauce is really really yummy particularly the one with plenty of garlic. It is open from12nn until 8pm.More

Seoseo Galbi offers a unique and delicious Korean galbi BBQ experience. It's a standup type of BBQ. There are no tables or seats so don't expect anything fancy. We stayed at a hostel nearby and decided to try Seoseo galbi for dinner one day. We...were lucky enough that there were no queues on that day and we were served very quickly. On other days when we went passed the restaurant, the queues were very long and begins to form around 12.30pm! We ordered the standard galbi set which came with the marinated beef, some chilli and dipping sauce. The bbq galbi was very delicious and the dipping sauce was amazing! Definitely a unique and different experience compared to other K-BBQ restaurants. Although, for the restaurant setting, the amount of beef that you get with no side dishes available, Seoseo Galbi is on the more expensive side for Korean food. However, if you are in the area and don't mind spending a bit more for food then this is definitely worth a try.More

It is located in Sinchon and close to metro station. Highly recommend this restaurant to you if you are a beef lover! We went there on a weekday & arrived at around 12:15pm, there were around 20-30 people (both locals & tourists) waiting outside. We...waited for around 45mins to get in. The queue was actually moving quite fast. There are no seats in the restaurant and you need to stand all the way. Grill beef is the only dish served here, the waiter will serve the portion according to the number of people. As I remember, each person cost around 15000 won. And you can also buy drinks in the restaurant, like beer, coke etc. The sauce of the beef was tasty!!! It is the best Galbi I have ever tried (very reasonable priced). We did ordered extra portion! Eat like locals:- Locals would buy & microwave the instant cooking rice at the nearby convenience store to eat with the beef. We also did the same! It tasted heavenly. there's one convenience store located just 2 mins away from the restaurant. The restaurant welcomes you to bring you own rice. Don't visit the place too late, as the restaurant will close after all beef is sold out! *though the restaurant will provide plastic bag to pack your clothes and bags inside, you will still catch the smell all over your body and hair, the ventilation is not that good.More
