Well... as a local I am very curious about the true recipe of Kyoja (a kind of Chinese dumpling) at this place. You should not think the dishes here as a traditional Korean dish. The flavor comes very sweet and soup is dumped by Korean...More

There are only about 3-4 items on the menu. You had to pay before you ate so that people can come and go quicker. We had the mandu and that was 10,000 won. it was good but i found it to be average.

Arguably Seoul’s most famous neighbourhood and
undoubtedly one of its most popular, Myeongdong takes
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

From Hotel Skypark 1,turn to the right and walk 2 blocks(you will pass Uniqlo), then turn to the left. Go straight, and you will find the restaurant. You can reach it in about 5-10 minutes.
