Though a bit tricky to find for those who don't speak or read korean (entrance signage is in korean characters only), this lower ground basement restaurant is an oasis of calm and luxury, with beautiful decor and an impactful entrance. Food was good, but in our opinion, far too overpriced for what it was. Perhaps here you pay more for... More

I came here on a big work dinner and ate in one of the private rooms. It was almost over-the-top luxurious. They really take care of you and put out a beautiful spread. The English menus came on iPads. I have no idea how much it cost but it seemed expensive. Probably the nicest meal I had in Korea.

We enjoyed our meal at Dadam. It is hard for me to write much because I'm not well versed in Korean food. Many of the courses had relatively subtle flavors, but a few were quite bold. We had one of the set course menus, which consisted of about 8 courses. Some of my favorites were the pumpkin soup/puree (which was... More

A dear friend brought us to Dadam and it was an amazing meal. Our friend lives in Seoul, so she choose the restaurant and the menu. We had the nine or ten course menu and each course was better than the last! If you have the chance, GO,

The hotel recommended it and we weren't disappointed. Just a sublime experience and proof that Korean food isn't just overly-spiced stodge. The restaurant is beautifully designed and each dish was beautifully plated and made with the freshest ingredients and good-sized helpings of love and attention. The highlight was a pork and tofu combo with a large pile of oyster-laced kimchi,... More

I'm no expert in Korean food, but was taken here by a local colleague who also ordered on my behalf - non Korean speakers should be fine as they had iPad based menus in various languages, which also showed pictures of each dish. Since he looked after the ordering I wasn't entirely sure what I was eating, although we started... More
