“Worst Service in Korea”
Review of Yeonpo Galbi

Yeonpo Galbi
Ranked #5 of 11,975 Restaurants in Suwon
Cuisines: Korean
Restaurant details
Reviewed 14 February 2016 via mobile

We decided to try this place after it being highly recommended in Lonely Planet but the signature dish, galbitang, was not served for lunch. That would've been fine but the staff did not make us feel welcome at all and almost would not let me have the salt shaker because they wanted to clear it. Korea has the best customer service in the world, apart from this place.

Loved the Galbi. Easy to order and very fast service at reasonable prices. A great place to eat and take a break while visiting the fortress.

I agree with all the good reviews for this restaurant. My husband and I order the Galbi Set Menu which comes with lots of side dishes including a miso-based tofu soup/stew, a number of banchan to be wrapped in lettuce with, of course, the galbi that was cooked at the table. The galbi portion was not particularly large but sufficient for lunch and was quite good. My hushand had wanted to try something else but was told the Galbi set must be ordered by 2 persons. I supposed one could get better galbi in Seoul but when in the birth place of this wonderful dish, what else could you possible want?

Great experience in Korean food. Excellent service (quick, attentative) but almost no English. The menu includes English "names" but you may not know what they actually mean (and there are no pictures to make to choice simpler). The food, however, is delicious and there is a lot of it.

If you want to try Korean food, there is hardly a better choice.

Slightly more expensive than other places around.

When you arrive ask for a table on the ondol floor next to the window because the view on the fortress is a nice scenery to try galbitang ! I wasn't very impressed by galbitang but it is nice to eat. Nobody could speak English but the women there were very nice and helpful as long as you great them with a bright smile (it works well in korea ;) ).
