Good tasting food, nice restaurant

Visited Yeyije January 2015 for a 12 course (or something) meal. The presentation was nice and the food tasted good. The time between each "bach" of courses was a bit short. The interiour of the restaurant is nice and the waiters were helpfull.

I visited this restaurant before, and it has recently moved to a new building across the street. The menu is mostly ‘Korean style’, although it is adapted to more modern taste. There are some dishes that are quite new to even Koreans. The price is fairly reasonable for its class.

The Yeyije Restaurant in Busan, S. Korea is an exceptional restaurant delivering first class food and service to match. Locals describe the restaurant as First Class and it is undoubtedly the case. Situated in a side street near the popular Paradise Hotel (a premier beach side hotel), the restaurant entrance is unpretentious and up a narrow staircase. This opens out... More

This is the second time I am back in Busan and I longed to come back to eat again in this place. The decoration is a with a harmonic blend of traditional and modern elements. The ingredients are fresh and very well presented like an art pieces. All the menu are sets menu. By the last 18 dishes, we cannot... More

Our first meal in Busan and it was one of our best in Korea. It was at Yeyije Korean Restaurant (1150-8 Jung-1Dong, Haeundae-Ku, Busan, South Korea, tel. 051-731-1100).The space was lovely and the service was very good. We were in Haeundae during the Film Festival and this restaurant was full at dinner; including one large private room with traditional tables... More

I have wanted to try so called Korean "royal cuisine" and this was rated as 5* by the KTO web site. So we decided to try the lunch instead for a start. Reservation needed but the staff doesn't speak English so we get our hotel to help to call for booking. Lunch menu are all set menus. We arrived at... More

Unless you really get a lot out of the idea that this is a traditional experience, I don't think this is worth it. We had the lunch, chose the most expensive option of the three at 35 000 won each. The service style is fun and they were very attentive; one course at a time with small servings of traditional... More

This resturaunt has two locations directly across the street from each other, This one is an upscale traditional emperor style dining resturaunt while the other is a Korean BBQ resturaunt. The staffs English speaking ability is nil, but the menu is very easy to order from in spite of that. The menu is in both Korean as well as English... More
