Restaurant was recommended by hotel. Samgyetang was a dish we wanted to try so it was an excellent match! The serving was generous with the accompanying side dishes and there was instructions in English on how to eat the food and what it all was.

Tried the chicken soup. The broth is brown and thick. Something different from the common soup I tried before. The broth are slightly tastier. The seafood pancake is big and thick. Overall.. A nice place to eat and do not expect to Wow..

This restaurant is famous about "Samgyetang". It is Korean popular cuisine, chicken soup. This Samgyetan is best taste I've eaten ever before. If you love chicken, you should come here.

They have a good selection of food. Of course we were there for the ginseng chicken, and we ordered both from the menu. You probably need to add some salt because they do not add any condiments. Everything you need is on the table. Some...More

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
