Wanting for Indian food, tried the restaurant for dinner since it was walking distance from my Hotel (Grand Ambassador Pullman). The ambience is quite average but the food was authentic Indian, tasted and served well. The value offered is great! Would go back and recommend!

Situated on the second floor in a narrow street in Seoul, Jyoti is a bit hard to find. But it's worthwhile finding. It's a small and cozy family restaurant, that sometimes feels - in a good way - as if you are eating in the...More

For this you need to call and reserve. I guess price depends up on what items you want to include in the buffet.
