Was looking for a good'ol authentic Bibimbap. Read about this place on TA. Surely didn't disappoint. Tucked in a small alley, you need to look for the old man in yellow traditional clothing with a hat. The beef Bibimbap was amazing. They make their own...More

Very disappointed. Service makes (to me) a significant difference to the dining experience, and the service we received was just abysmal. The woman who 'waited' upon us looked at both of us with barely disguised distaste - and I have no idea why. I expect...More

Went there for my 5th dinner in Seoul with my wife. The restaurant is a little dated but traditional setting. The bibimpoh was yummy and the Ginseng chicken is alright.

It is a hidden jewel. Tucked in a small alley in Myeongdong, it offers authentic and traditional hot stone bibimbap and other Korean foods. The place is also a Chinese-friendly restaurant.

Myeongdong / Namdaemun
Arguably Seoul’s most famous neighbourhood and
undoubtedly one of its most popular, Myeongdong takes
shopping and eating to new heights, with hundreds of
shops, restaurants, and cafes all stacked on top of
one another. The rise in popularity of Korean
cosmetics, fashion, and more has made this area a
must-see for visitors who come and marvel at
Myeongdong’s often frenetic pace and energy. Lotte and
