Satisfied meal for the family even the young ones who don’t usually take spicy food - good to keep body warm in cold winter. Reasonable price (per pax). Lots of locals eat there. Group of 3-4 is ideal size.

It is small resturant at reasonable price. Lots of customers at noon time. We ordered one portion each for us. The owner seem to advise us that one portion is good for two people, but I want to eat a different kind of fish, so...we end up ordering too much. Too bad the fishes were not fresh live fishes, they were frozen from the frig. But we could taste some local food anyway. Next time I have to try one with live fish in tank like the Chinese Resturant. The taste was very different.More

The 4 of us tried the shrimp octopus stir fried with rice and it was so delicious! The restaurant was located at the at the row where there are many clubs around so we thought we were at the wrong place haha. Big portions food,...just like other Korean restaurants I guess. No porks were served, only seafood so as muslim travellers, this is a big plus for us.More

This small restaurant is very, very good. Menu is in Korean but with picture and English names over the country, it is easy to pick among the five or six proposals. The food is excellent, cooked right on your table. Service is good and fast....You may have to wait a little as the place attract a lot of people! Note that the address on trip advisor is wrong. Apparently, they have move recently to 14, Sinchang-dong 1(il)-ha, Jung-gu (it's 500m from thé old location)More

Try the outlet at Haeundae. It’s much bigger than the one in Nampodong. Great experience and worth going.

Decided to try this restaurant as it was also recommended on Visit Korea website. It was delicious! There was no English menu so we ordered what the owner recommended. The stew came with octopus, shrimp, beef tripe, Korean vermicelli, rice cakes, onions and green onions....After the stew boils for a few minutes, mix it before scooping into your rice, put in the side dishes and start eating. Restaurant is located near Gukje market.More

Very comforting fare. The fiancé and I ordered the set with baby octopus, large intestines and rice cakes (teokpokki). They will let the dish cook on a pan on your table and then once ready you need to quickly portion it out to your bowl...of rice. Leaving it to cook for too long will burn the food. It was one of the better meals we had in our trip so far. Definitely won't mind going back again. We were surprised at the bill amount though, as the board had stated 9,000 but apparently the price was per pax rather than per dish. 18,000 was still a reasonable price to pay for the meal. Only felt the restaurant could have been more clear.More

I ate Nakgop Bbokkum. The taste was good but the amount of Nakji (a kind of small octopus) and Gopchang (intestines) was less than I expected.

This restaurant is ranked very high among Busan's restaurants. I was very excited to find it and was looking forward to a five star meal. I was given a menu in Korean. They said they did not have an English menu. They only other language...available was Mandarin. The menu had very limited options. The main dish was seafood soup (40,000 won for large, 30,000 won for small), and you could add a side fish of fried octopus (9,000 won). There were a couple of other dishes on the menu. That's it. I ordered the seafood soup. It was ok, but this dish is quite indistinguishable from those offered by other restaurants that may not be ranked so highly on Tripadvisor. The service staff are very courteous. The restaurant is clean and comfortable. However, I don't see how its high ranking on Tripadvisor is justified.More

The menu only printed in both korean & japanese language which we don't understand both the languages. The boss and staffs there don't speak a single word of english too. It's funny when we communicate in different languages when ordering food. Body language is the...best international language! LOL! We want something really local and I guess this is it. The food was so good and it turns out to be my favorite through out my whole trip here in Busan.More
