We visited as a large party and honestly I was expecting average food, poor service and high prices based on the reviews here. The service was actually pretty good and the food is decent. It's a traditional Korean BBQ place and the food is better...More

Some business colleagues and I had a terrific dinner in a private dining room. We had several types of beef, some shrimp and delicious Korean BBQ vegetables. KimChi was outstanding. Best we had in Seoul. Better than average, attentive service.

Apgujeong / Cheongdam
Aside from Sinsa / Garosugil, no other area in Seoul
connotes the words “luxury” and “fancy” like Apgujeong
and Cheongdam. Global luxury brands have set up their
flagship stores here, catering to the neighbourhood's
mostly affluent residents. It’s also one of the top
areas in Korea (some say the world) for cosmetic
surgery, attracting hundreds of thousands each year
for a little nip or tuck. The other parts of Apgujeong
