Restaurant located in a residential neighbourhood up on a hill. Not sure how tourists could find the place if not taking a taxi. Very beautiful surrounds overlooking the city. Eight course dinner plus desserts. Seafood on meat broth with citron sauce was amazing. I also enjoyed the Grilled Beef, dessert. The other dishes were so-so. Extremely expensive so trying once...

Went to Oct with my wife when visiting Seoul for holiday. Reservations have to be made by e-mail before hand and credit card numbers have to be given. You will have a few set menus to choose from as well. The restaurant does not serve other a la carte menu items. The place is fairly difficult to find though you... More

I was new to Korean food, especially the multi-course gourmet style, like this. The restaurant is simple but elegant and the food presentations are great. The place was very hard to find, even by our cab driver! This was quit a treat and the night (and twilight) view was good. I wouldn't mind going back again...

the food is a little spicy, may be not suitable to me. The restaurant location is not convenient, it may take some time to find it. The staff service good and polite. Just has a little expensive the food quality with the price.

this is a very high-end restaurant that is currently very popular. It's chic and Korean fusion with excellent service. I have to admit, I am more of a traditionalist, but this was quite excellent and is a set menu, but I'm glad I went and glad my cousin paid! It's small, so you need a reservation and also has a...

Set menu only. Pre-booking advised. Mostly very good, sometimes excellent. Small central kitchen where dishes are plated. Roasted Pine Seeds and sliced dried Jujube are standard fare at the table as well as their signature. Set menus are well composed and the team tries hard to translate their culinary creations into English.. Service is excellent, the ambiance is special, the... More

I was really looking forward to eating at Poom. I think I built the restaurant up in my head so much that my expectations were really high. But apparently, Poom exceeded those expectations. One thing that I read a lot was that Poom was hard to find. I took a taxi and gave them Poom's korean address (found on their... More

The menu is a tour-de-force of traditional fine Korean cuisine, which for an Englishman was a brilliant introduction. The Juju hairtail fish is a totally new flavour, and is amazing.
