Owner was probably the nicest person we met in Korea as foreigners and the food was great. Super tender chicken and soup was nice and salt/pepper could be added at will. Went there for the food but the experience was the highlight. Good portion size...and otherwise cool experience. Cheers from the Aussies who visited tonight!More

While it does only serve one item, it does that very well. The lady is very friendly and takes time to explain how to eat and enjoy the dish and the various small side dishes. That made the visit more of an experience than just...eating a quick meal. The soup and chicken was very tasty and the side dishes (especially the radish kimchi and fresh cabbage kimchi) were equally great. Definitely a recommendation!More

Visited together with my family at Busan. The staff was very friendly, and patiently explained how to eat this dish! The restaurant was very generous with their banchan too. The samgytang was very flavourful and packed with herbs! Definitely recommend!

Typhoon Hinnamnor is due to hit within the next 48 hours. What better time than now for some comfort food! Samgyetang, ginseng chicken soup, is a whole chicken filled with glutinous rice, ginseng, garlic, and jujube. After a quick lesson by the kind gentleman working...today, once you separate the tender chicken (and dip each bite in a tiny dish of salt), then you're left with a velvety bowl of porridge. Samgyetang is served with a variety of the freshest kimchis and seasonings. Oh, and a shot of ginseng wine. And just when I thought I couldn't fit another morsel in my mouth, the hottest, sweetest, creamiest coffee arrived! Ooh, la la - pure heaven! P.S. They have takeaway containers, but next time I will bring my own. Our highest recommendation!More

Highly recommended ginseng chicken meal in Busan. The owners of the shop were really hospitable as they showed us how to eat the ginseng chicken properly by adding the salt into the soup and how to eat the green chilli like a local. At the...end of the meal, they offered us coffee and gave us ginseng sweets which really perked us up. Lastly, auntie was really sweet as she showed us the direction of the subway and waited with us for the cab to arrive. Definitely do visit this store if you are in Busan!More

If you’re like me and you’re curious why a chicken soup restaurant is the top rated in all of Busan, you should definitely check this place out! The owner is so incredibly hospitable and welcoming. I visited at the end of February when it was...understandably quiet during lunch hours due to the current pandemic. She welcomed me into her home-style restaurant, taught me how to eat the soup and all the different side dishes, gave me so many little extras like ginseng wine, ginseng candy and a coffee. The soup was perfect, and had a soothing quality to eating it. The chicken was insanely tender and all the side dishes were delicious. It’s not massive on flavour, but what the owner manages to do is perfect these simple flavours. This was such a heartwarming and relaxing experience, and I’d recommend it to anyone who visits Busan as a must-do!More

Such a treat! It’s more than a meal it’s an experience. We loved it, but we like to experience local culture more than your typical touristy spots when traveling. You start with ginseng wine, banchan that is definitely not your typical items. The owner walks...you through how to eat the traditional meal and you finish it off with coffee and fruit. Definitely recommend it. Cab fare was cheap and we left stuffed.More
