Chanced by this good-looking restaurant and had a lovely dinner here. Welcoming staff who produced English menu when we told him we're from Singapore. Service is quick and efficient. We ordered the signature Chicken ginseng soup and the short-ribs soup. Both were outstanding. The chicken...stuffed with rice was tender and served with a small bottle of sweet rice wine. The short ribs came with scissors and tongs as you need to cut the meat which clings to the large bones. The soup was flavored with herbs, red dates and prettily decorated with egg ribbons. The banchan was generous, a green salad with a piquant dressing, kimchi etc. The accompanying photo is blurry because it was steaming hot, so comforting on a cold night! Impeccable service and top-grade food!More

We enjoyed our dinner at Samojeong. We had the Ginseng Chicken soup and also the bibimbap. We didnt understand what the waitress was trying to tell us about the wine, which was supposed to be added into the soup , hence it was quite bland....Make sure you add in the ginseng wine into the soup first. Easy to find as it is near the subway.More

Excellent ginseng chicken soup 16,000 won. Be sure to eat some of the chicken meat and try the barley rice underneath. This was on our bucket list for Korea and we had to try this place given the high reviews. TripAdvisor didn’t disappoint. The restaurant...is located just outside the subway and has this upscale feeling with piano music playing softly in the background. Bibimbap was also very good.More

Really the best ginseng chicken soup we ever had. We were not hungry when we arrived, but wanted to try because of all the good reviews & we were not disappointed! We end up finishing a bowl each together with all the cold dishes ;D

We had thee items: bi bim bop, chicken ginseng soup (on the bone) and a spicy version that was boneless. All three were very good, as was the service. Pricing was reasonable... the whole meal came in at about W31k, which is only about $10...per person.More

Lovely restaurant, very smart looking and the waiters were very prompt & helpful. We had an english menu provided, and advice on what to order. The sides were good, but the bulgoli bibimbap (mixed beef, mushrooms & veg with rice) was really good. Also tried...the chicken soup which was delicious - they have a huge range of korean drinks to choose from, so ideal time to try a soju or a femented rice wine !More

This shop is well known for their Chicken Soup or locally known as "Samgyetang". We chanced upon this shop as we were passing by and noted many locals dining in. The warm welcome by the wait staff was good though she do not understand English....She introduced the menu by highlighting the house specials. We ordered the Ginseng Chicken Soup and Vegetarian Bibimbap. The portions was enough for 3 persons as it was accompanied by side pickles and jars of water. The food was served quickly. Overall the meal was tasty and filling. Well recommended as one of the delicious Ginseng Chicken Soup!More

Tried several ginseng chicken soup and they are always a bit bland for me. But this one is different. It is delicious itself! For stronger taste , just add a pinch of salt. They serve it with ginseng wine which I strongly recommend you add...it into the soup! Soooo yummy especially in the winter.More

Famous ginseng chicken soup restaurant in Busan Highly recommend their signature dish – ginseng chicken soup with rice (in the soup). The broth is amazing – rich in flavor yet doesn’t feel heavy. The chicken is tender and the rice is soft without being mushy....Very comforting soup. Traditional ambiance and very popular among localsMore

Great Ginseng Chicken Soup here. However, 1 person needs to order 1 Chicken. Meat is tender and stuffed with glutinous rice. Great combination. Provided a few side dishes. I never ate samgyetang before. This was my first experience. The service was excellent. The chicken was...so tender and the soup was so thick. Worth the price. This is a must visit and highly recommended food!!More
