Hey guys
I have been living in seoul for the past 7 months. Whenever I feel like eating Indian food I would go to jothi restaurant located in sinchon or chungmuro branch in seoul. The food is really yummy and if you ask the staff to make the curry spicy then the chef will do it for you. Recently I also visited their new branch in jonggak, the place was huge and absolutely recommend it for group party.
The best menu I personally like is the thali set or 1 person set where u can eat appetizer, curry, rice, nan and drinks for low price and portion is just more than enough for one person. If u can't finish eating the food that u order then no problem, if u ask the staff they will give you the small container in which u can pack and take your food home and enjoy it later.
The staffs were really friendly and they even gave me Indian chai (tea) for service.
I really love the place. Definitely will visit a few more times. Clean and tasty.

The cup they gave me for water was filled with the previous diners bright red lipstick - disgusting oversight!

Curry tasted like the main ingredient was sugar, the carrots and beans in the curry were obviously of the store bought frozen variety.

Garlic Naan was ok!

The salad greens were turning brown, yuck.

Lassi, just skip it! Tasted like a store bought carton left open for a week.

How can this place even be allowed to stay open? Who knows.

From the looks about it almost all the diners (not many at Sunday 8pm) all were foreign tourists like me... perhaps they are all oblivious what Indian food should really be.

I should have stuck with Korean food for this meal, after all I am in Korea!!!!

Great Indian food right here in Chungmuro. We ordered way too much food and everything was very good. My friend is a vegetarian who loves Indian food and he found everything he loved on the menu. My lamb dish was seasoned perfectly and not too spicy while my friend's food was blazing hot the way he likes it. Overall great experience. Will eat here again.
