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 added small dishes which is common in all Korean restaurants.

There is rice inside the chicken. It may be a small bird but it doesn't look like your KFC artificially enhanced chicken. It's enough per serving to feed each person.

I would come back here again definitely.

Worth a visit if you are in the area and craving for a Samgyetang. Soup is creamy, chicken is soft, place is not super full and service is ok!

The soup is thick and creamy. The way I liked it. Chicken is tender and very easy to manage on a side bowl. Kimchi is stronger tasting than usual but good match to the glutinous rice (found in the chicken). Topped w ginseng liquor, perfect for a cold day.
