This south african restaurant is a good and genuine find in the big city of Seoul. Think Lamb, bangers and meaty food pies. Limited amount of seats so reservation is recommended.

Best food I've eaten in Seoul, incredible pork sausages and garlic potatoes to die for. Great wine as well. Pays to go early, we arrived at 5.30pm and got the last table. Very grungy, intimate restaurant. Highly, highly recommended!

I always order the same thing when I come here for food. My usual has always been their chicken pot pies and their spinach. They also have stews, steaks, and ribs and they look awesome. A must try if you are in Itaewon!

Mmm mmmm mmm! Braai done right. It was like being back in Cape Town. Great service and the owner is the genius. Being an Aussie on a Australia v Bok's night, it was only fitting that it was a draw. Oh and the takeaway biltong.......More
