Note that this place is now just Seoul Restaurant. They dropped the Buffet part. We went here for dinner because it was near our hotel. The place looks a little weird for a Korean restaurant from the front, but don't be put off. The food was delicious! They brought out a whole appetizer array of kimchee and other delicacies before...

After reading other reviews we decided to try this place for lunch one Saturday. Per the reviews, the parking lot was nearly empty but we were not deterred from giving it a try. Wow, so glad we gave it a chance. The pork bulgogi and beef bulgogi were fantastic. The kimchi and other panchan was also tremendous. Don't let the... More

Well, it was everyone else's loss - this place is really good! We all had Dol Sot - I the standard version (which is beef and vegetable Bi... More

We were a little afraid to eat there since there were no cars in the parking lot on a Friday night. The name has changed from Seoul Buffet to Seoul Restaurant. The food was fine. We were the only people. SO we had great service. The decor is not great, but the price was great and food was good. Since... More

My very first experience at a Korean restaurant and the food and service was superb. We had our toddler with us and she too was accommodated, and her loud talking didnt seem to bother anyone. Whenever I visit the area I will return!

Food was okay. We let the waiter/owner choose for us. Didn't feel up to tripe or codheads or offal in general. Really enjoyed the OB -- Korean beer with an unfortunate name.

Restraunt is not a buffet, but does have an attached Korean store. We ordered steamed and fried dumplings as appetizer and chicken box for lunch. All the food was fresh and very good. The kimchi was awesome. Paul enjoyed the kimchi so much that he purchased a half gallon prior too leaving. I will be returning to this restraunt.
