A classic Korean Restaurant in Brussels

I ve been going to Seoul since 1990... Has changed ownership but still one of the best places for Korean Bbq or bibimbap in Brussels.. Not the cheapest but probably the restaurant with the most authentic korean feeling. Its still one of my favorites..

The service was slow and the food was just average. The menu selection is limited for a Korean restaurant and the flavors are not authentic. The soups and stews did not have the depth of flavor authentic Korean foods have. The side dishes are meager. Very expensive for the dishes we ordered.

"Kalbi", Korean-style marinated barbecued ribs is excellent. Madam is constantly kind and gracious. 特製のたれ漬けの「骨付きカルビ」がとても美味しいです。マダムは日本在住経験があり、日本語で何でも丁寧に対応してくださいます。

The foods are great. The best :) as an Asian myself I can say that the foods are do authentic and delicious. My favorite menus are beef bulgogi, bibimbab, and Korean leak pancake as a starter. For the drink I really like ginseng tea and magkoli (traditional Korean rice wine). The service can be quite slow and sometimes abit dissapointing.... More

We have been here many times. The restaurant is not huge, and is busy (though not always full) most times. The tables all have barbecues installed, which means that the room can get a bit smoky, but not so much as to be a problem. The service can be a bit slow, but always polite and efficient. We have never... More

The restaurant is simply decorated and it felt as if it was a family runned business. On a busy Saturday evening 3 people were working. Staff was functionally nice and we liked the modest and intimate atmosphere. We ordered Seafood fondue for 2 persons, Beef menu and Jap chae. As the Seafood fondue was the most expensive dish on the... More

Visited with Japanese wife. We walked in without a reservation on a Saturday night and were able to get a table. Not sure how as the place filled up really quickly. The food was nice, the wife has a far more tuned palate thought the beef stock didn't have the authentic flavour. I really enjoyed the black noodles in ice... More

My husband and I went there for a nice dinner. My husband used to work in Seoul and longed for Korean food. We were really pleased with what we had to eat. It was very fresh and tasted very much like when we ate in Seoul a few years ago. We were quite early in the evening (first customers) and... More
