Saw some pretty encouraging reports about this place on TA so gave it a try. Have to say it really wasn't what I was expecting, taste and quality were decidedly mixed, there are better similarly priced and more authentic Indian offerings elsewhere in the city. Ambience and staff were fine, good service etc. But on this occasion it wasn't a... More

This was the second time I was having food here ... had been here previously for Dinner and had found food great especially Dal Makhani and Samosa. This time went with my family for lunch. Service was good but food was not as great as the 1st time - we ordered mixed veg and it was not authentic Indian but... More

there is a friendly Korean manager who speaks good English and Hindi. Kind staff and well attended. Chicken Makhni is the best in the world wide! Dying to learn their secret makhni recipe!

Its a small restaurant in a narrow street. However, looks can be defective. This definitely among the best in Seoul in terms of Indian food.

Visited Om Gwanghwamun branch which is only about 50m from exit 7 of the station. It seems quite new and looks very clean, with very nice decor. Shown to a table by a pleasant Korean waiter who brought a glass of water then disappeared. An unsmiling indian woman delivered a trio of pickles to the table, pickled cucumber, halapeno chillis...

Terrific meal at Om. Tandoori chicken was very nice. Samosas - spicy but not overwhelming. Nice selection of curries. Had the butter chicken and vindaloo. Butter chicken had a velvety texture and the taste was fabulous. Vindaloo was sold as spicy. And first 10 minutes I thought this was nothing. Then my wife looks at my forehead and says, 'you...

The food was very good. The naans especially were awesome! The other dals and subzis too were quite tasty.

We tried to go to the neighbouring Italian place, but as it was full, we decided to try this instead. We were not disappointed! My friend ordered some sort of curry pasta and loved it, I ate vegetarian Indian style food with naan bread and Korean rice plus mango lassi. The bill was not cheap, but I'd still come again.

One of our first stops in Seoul and it didn't disappoint. Beautiful setting, attentive service and delicious food. Better than other popular Indian restaurants in the area. This one will live in my book of 'musts' when I visit Seoul again.
