Highly recommended. The restaurant only has one set menu: chicken in soup with sticky rice cake, potatoes, mushroom and noodle. That's all. The chicken and the soup are amazing...

In this alley in an alley you will be taken care of the ladies of the restaurant. Being new to Seoul and Korea I cannot vouch for its authenticity but I felt it was a real Korean restaurant where real Koreans come to eat. The locale is very basic with fluorescent lights but you forget that with the service and... More

We were actually looking for the 265-22 original chicken, but entered this one by mistake. However, it is really good. Just order Set A and prepare 25000. It is a very memorable meal for two. Don't forget to drink all the soup after boiling the noodles.

Nothing beats being cheated off than this place. Not worth the effort to walk all this way here to try this. It's just chicken onion and mushroom soup one can cook at home. Rip off for a pot of chicken soup.

What is better than a wholesome meal of chicken and chicken soup on a cold cold day!! We wanted to try Dakhanmari and took great pains to walk to this alley using a slip of paper saying "Dakhanmari Meokja-golmok" (Dakhanmari = Chicken Soup, Meokja = Food, Golmok = Alley). Again we met a kind gentleman who knows a smattering of... More

First of all this is a real Korean experience, a gang of Aguma`s (Old Korean women) hanging around, seemed like they where working there, but did not do any work. But the service was good from a young Korean guy who could speak some English, he took me through the whole process of eating this delicious chicken soup. Its made... More

I noticed most of the reviews were from non-Koreans, or tourists, as a Korean person that know what Korean chicken should taste like, this is far from even meeting the basic requirement of what Korean chicken soup taste like. As for the "tourists" that liked it, I'll be more than happy to take you to places that are much superior... More

There is a cluster of chicken soup restaurants in that particular backalley. I have eaten 2 of them I found that the best one is the one with 3 storeys. (http://www.wonjodark.co.kr) The chilli sauce is bar-none. You can add the chilli into the soup if you prefer it to be spicy. The place is packed everyday up to 10pm. Be... More
