Although this hotel is located on the beach with a great view and the staff is quite attentive, the food is par at best. We did eat at this location more than once, and both time we were so-so satisfied with the food. I might suggest not ordering a salad, because the ingredients are 'unknown'

I can't say that I have ever had an outstanding dining experience at TGI Fridays. The ribs are chewy, the steaks look like they've been frozen and the standard in general is pretty ordinary for the prices they charge. There are a lot of better options in the area for the price point. The service also leaves a lot to... More

Busy restaurant overlooking Haeundae beach, there was a 20 minute wait early on a saturday evening, we sat at the bar area, which bizarrely doesn't function as a bar, to wait and after 20 minutes the table was ready. Order was taken promptly, food was good and order accurate, price was ok, overall a good experience, shame not able to... More

Avoid!!! In comparison to all other TGI's around the world this is definitely below par. Sub standard service, staff that look as miserable as sin and the food was very very poor. Better choices for western food in the same building such as Mad for Garlic or Outback - Avoid at all costs!!!

We stopped in here to have lunch. No one greeted us. It took over 20 minutes to have someone come to the table we sat at. There was not many people in the restaurant, but there seemed to be only a couple servers buzzing around. Ran out of time at waiting over 40 minutes and only having time for a... More

After living in Korea for nearly 3 years, I should know better than to expect a popular American chain restaurant experience to be anything at all like it is back home but I guess I'll never learn... Myself and two companions visited this restaurant on a Friday night at 8pm. We asked to sit in the bar area but were... More
