Very tasty. Excellent meat quality. The Korean beef is the best. Service is efficient and quick. Highly recommended.

Don't let the long queue fool you. This place is a tourist trap. Overpriced and overrated. Beef was just normal and portions are miniscule. Better go to Mapletree a few blocks down, better beef and bigger portions there.

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

Unless they have changed their policy, you cannot make reservation and everyone will have to queue. Going early may help.
