Sorabol was a nice surprise! It is located in the basement of the Lufthansa Center across the street from the Westin Chaoyang. The menu is easy to read and available in English with good photos. The restaurant is very nicely appointed and decorated as a Korean restaurant. All tables have a grilling area but not all items on the menu... More

Visited here on 1st December. Food quality is generally good but expensive. Service for me is poor and sometimes comes with attitude. Also be aware everything comes at once so if you want to eat slowly order slowly. Marks out of 5 Food Quality 4 Service 3 Atmosphere 3 Price $$$$

Located in Yanshan, the restaurant seems like a favorite among the locals.  We are greeted by a pleasant front. The restaurant is pretty crowded. The appetizers are sadly only a few. Prices are pretty steep but thank goodness the taste is authentic enough.  I only didn't like the spicy beef soup. It tasted weird, in my opinion.  The Korean tea... More

The food might be delicious but just browsing the menu at the entrance is enough to discourage you of even trying. There is a much cheaper Korean restaurant a few hundred yards away that I would strongly recommend.

We ordered beef ribs (kalbi) which consisted of two pieces totaling 170 grams (around 8 ounces). Rice and lettuce wraps were both extra (many Korean restaurants include those in the price). Five bancheon or... More

I love this place. Have been there probably a dozen times. It is downstairs under the Lufthansa Centre building in Chaoyang in Beijing. Food is very authentically Korean and the menus all have photos of the food which makes communicating easy.
