The food was excellent but yes it was very pricey. With 5 beers the bill was 400,000 w for 5 people. Lots and lots of sides includes but the crab is not cooked Had the rib eye and skirt steak very very tasty, we all left very satisfied If you've got the cash then go for it

We took a party of 14 here and were a bit rushed since our meetings there had ended late and we all had phone meetings based on US time a little later in the evening. We explained this to the staff and they hustled to serve us an excellent meal. We limited the meat to ribs to make the process... More

I visited my restaurant with my relatives during my trip to Korea in October. My relatives (who live in Korea) have been frequenting this place for years, it's just that good. I think it is a bit on the pricier side but all the side dishes are very delicious and the meat is just fantastic. This place has been around... More

I saved this place for my last night of 8 in Gangnam-gu, hoping to be the best. Service is great, and they speak enough English to get by without a menu disaster. Waitresses congregated to find out where we all were from. very attentive, and as usual, the sides came out quickly. However, I got more volume, variety and quality... More

I went there for dinner. Grilled Beef Sirloin is much better than ribs. and may be you are not satisfied with the price. little bit old fashioned 저녁 고기 먹으러 갔습니다. 갈비보다는 생등심 추천드리구요. 가격대비 만족할 만한 수준은 아닙니다. 약간 시대의 흔적이 보이는듯

Not the nicest looking restaurant but good service and simply great food particularly the meat, served with excellent sides and veggies this place was excellent and only marked down for the ambiance. Our 3 year old who doesn't eat much meat by choice scarfed the steak down in a way I've never seen. The staff was sweet and helpful considering... More

Visited here for dinner recently on the recommendation of Korean friends who had heard about it but not been here before. We had several kinds of beef, along with what seemed like hundreds of side dishes. The food was all great, and the service very good. The atmosphere is very basic, the focus really is on the food.

After having been to fine dining last night, I found this restaurant is reasonable priced for the juicy beef. The cuttlefish is also good. There is a kimchi dish using morning glory plant which has added ginseng also unusual for me.

This restaurant is worth the price. Upon entering the restaurant, I am thinking a traditional "old school" experience. I was thinking the cost for meat was a bit on the expensive, until the side dishes arrived . . . and boy did they arrive in an abundance. The wait staff was sincere and sweet. English was a little limited, but... More

We (my freind and I) visited this restaurant in Oct 2014. We shared two dishes (beef) 55 000 won for 140g and 66 000 won for 130g. Abit expensive but the food was out of this world (amazing!!!), so highly recommended for anyone who can afgord it. We paid 150 000 won for two dishes including beer and soju. The... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Samseongdong / COEX
A large business hub, Samseongdong is anchored by Korea’s World Trade Center, where many important business exhibitions and meetings are held. The enormous COEX mall sprawls underground, providing a myriad of things to do and see, including a large aquarium and movie theater.
