This place is horrible. Food is horrible, service is terrible, we were charged twice for a plum wine. I was told by my Korean Friend that only tourist come to this place. Avoid at all cost !

Writing the review just as I was done with the meal. Quality of the food was mediocre, if this is the standard of Jeonju bibimbap, that would disappoint many whom have come seeking the gold standard. Jabchae was reasonably better but still fail to impress. This is the only restaurant that I've visited in Korea, where the waitress clears away... More

The Korean beef here is very delicious. It is served with seven side dishes. The side dishes are unique and not the usual cheap beansprouts. Service is also very good. The price of the food is worth it.

Read the great review on internet, lead us to this restaurant. But we had bad experience here. We order 2 menus, while 4 of us came. But the waitress got angry why we only order 2. It was really inappropriate for a restaurant to make us order more than we want. For sure i WONT COME HERE AGAIN !!! Not... More

I was actually looking for Jeonju Jungang Hoekwan but couldn't find it, despite trying very hard. Desperate for my dolsot bibimbap fix, I went to Gogung since it was mentioned in the same article. As it was just me, there was no possibility of any grilling so I just ordered what I came for and... I have to say that... More

Avoided the usual meal time to avoid the crowd. The food was nice and delicious. The kid also like the food a lot. The glass noodles also nice.

I've been going to Seoul every year and always make it a point to patronise Gogung for their traditional Jeonju bibimbap - I always go for the hot stone version for the slightly charred and crispy rice at the bottom. This trip must have been my 5th in the last 4 years and I was slightly disappointed this time. The... More

After reading a lot about this place and also being recommended by a friend we decided to try this joint out and have to say that we were disappointed, but probably our expectations were just too high. I do have to mention that we came here mainly for their bibimbap after hearing they made one of the bests and found... More

Yes unfortunately there were not enough service staff for entire restaurant, so many dirty tables yet to be cleared. The food was good & tasty. We had a nice window table but staff was very stressed out with service, orders, cooking, & cleaning up.
