The food here was not too heavy because we had been eating barbecue almost every meal. They only serve ginseng chicken soup and some others appetisers. My family loves it but it's not my type of food. Worth trying ! :)

It's not boiling hot, cold after a while, soup is tasteless. I went to the other shop on my first day and tried ginseng chicken it was still hot even after I finished the chicken.

This is a long-standing shop in a very touristy location, so it is going to be pricier comparing to other locations. However, it was our last night in Seoul, and we just wanted to have a looked-to-be-decent Samgyetang meal close to our hotel before leaving...More

今天由于在明洞停留的时间较短,本来想吃烤肉结果去吃了参鸡汤,在大众点评里找到这家,不是很难找,门口有trip advisor的travelers choice 标志,之前吃过两次参鸡汤,感觉这家店的鸡比较小,肉少,店里客人基本都是中国人,有中文服务,菜一般,价格一般,not my best personal choice.

The black chicken soup was nice, and I found it very tasty. People have to realize that not all food needs to be Uber salty or spicy to be tasty. However, the price is high for what you get.

I have visited this place few times in the last 6 years. It is getting worse and less. Before I could hardly finish the bowl, tonight I had to go and buy snacks, as chickens they are use are very fit and lean. Quality and...More
