Very delicious Korean barbeque. Good quality meats and the staff prepared those in the table on hot coal bbq. Very tasty. The restaurant is on the second floor and outdoors there is sign only in Korean, in kind of handwritten font.

Went here wanting KBBQ as the first thing I had in South Korea and it was so good it straight up ruined subsequent meals because the bar was set too high. The quality of the meats (we had a mix of pork and beef) was amazing and the staff was crazy effective. They cook everything over white charcoal reminiscent of... More

Super delicious and had great service (we went at 6 PM on a Friday). Got the short rib, which was super juicy, and the tenderloin. Loved all the add ons too - particularly the 2 types of kimchi.

This was our first meal upon touching down in Seoul. But boy, was it a great one! The waitering staffs were very polite and their services were superb. The waiter would personally make sure every piece of the pork meat was grilled perfectly on the charcoal grill. We ordered two sets of premium beef set that came with banchan (18000W... More

They offer Hanwoo beef which refers to cattle indigenous to Korea which are raised only in the country. Ate here 3 times in a row. Beef was super tender. Staff are friendly and can speak little english.

We got really good quality beef and pork. Slightly small portions, for a big meat eater portions are just enough for 1 so order a bit more. Slightly pricey for our meals. Our servers did not rush us at all, even with the relatively long line. They were helpful when we were ordering. There are English translations to the menu... More

We went here last week, myself, my wife and my one year old son in the pram. It's a difficult to maneouvre the stairs with the pram. We were told that it was last orders as we were ordering.

Based on a recommendation from the hotel, i found this restaurant. I must say this is the best Korean BBQ I've had so far. Quality of meat is very good - we went ala carte and had 2 orders of beef ribeye, short ribs, seafood pancake and 2 tofu soups. Portions are small so it is recommended to order more... More

it was the best korean bbq we had! good service and great ambience. the meat was well marinated. 3 of us ordered 3 servings of meats and was just good enough. you might need to order extra if you are a big eater. we came out without any smell, which is the best part of having bbq! highly recommend!

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.
