Normally, tourist will choose buffet with 15k won / person. In here. We come with 2 person and it cost 28k for total. But the quality is good. Staff is friendly even they do not know English, as usual in Korea :) But. I am...highly recommend this restaurant for tourist.More

Amazing place, the food is delicious. You can choose between Octopus, Tripe, Shrimp or a mix. Personally I enjoyed very much the Octopus and Shrimp mix.

This was one of our to-go restaurants in Busan and it didn’t disappoint! 4 of us, 4 portions, along with the addition of udon and rice cakes surely filled us up. We chose the octopus + prawn + gopchang (intestine) combo which was 10,000 Won...per portion! Servers were fast and it’s good if you know basic Korean!More

This is not fine dining, it’s tasty, filling food served by polite and helpful staff. It looks a bit like a fast food joint and in a sense it is. If you like seafood soups you’ll love this.

Saw this place on Trip Advisor so decided to try it. Have to say I agree whole heartedly with other reviews. It is a very limited menu but the prawn and octopus pot is great. All very reasonably priced and no problem that I was...on my own. Highly recommend.More

We spent almost an hour trying to find this place and we managed to get there just when we were about to give up. As an indication, try to find Holly’s Coffee and it is on the opposite side. The food menu is very simple....You can chose between octopus, pork, shrimp, tripe or have a mix of all of them. We went for the octopus and shrimp for 2 and it was fantastic. At just around 15$ it was also our cheapest dinner in South Korea. We’ll go there again before we leave Busan.More

That restaurant serves amazing seafood hotpot where you'll simply have to chose whether you want it made of squid and/or shrimp, and let the staff guide you. Very tasty (spicy, I have to admit as well) and rather cheap.

We enjoyed eating at this hot pot style restaurant. We chose the shrimp and octopus for our main seafood ingredients but there also was a third option of tripe. Prices quoted in the menu were per person. We selected the medium spiciness and it turned...out to be the right amount of heat for us. For an extra 1500 won, we added instant ramen noodles which was a good choice to complement our hot pot. Our table seemed a bit tight for the four of us with our plates and utensils plus the butane burner. Luckily our server did most of the cooking for us and then we just served ourselves. Overall, once all the ingredients were mixed together it was a delicious meal that satisfied all of us.More

I’m not much of a spicy eater, but I still tried it. The octopus had a hot and spicy aroma, but was really appetizing to eat, I ordered it with shrimp and beef fat, the shrimp was fresh and was very chewy, the fat felt...a bit oily to me, I then ordered a ramen to be mixed with the soup, the spiciness of the soup blended in well with the firm ramen, it was really appetizing, will recommend if you’re into spicy food, but not if you’re not a spicy eater, basically everything is spicy hereMore

Had a great hotpot with prawn and octopus. There is also a good portion of ramen noodles that can be added on. Even when the restaurant is full the staff are also able to attend to us. Do avoid the lunch/dinner crowd as there is...little area outside the restaurant while you wait for seats.More
