“Good, authentic Korean in Spain?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2011

Unexpectedly good. Better than most Korean Restaurants in Chicago and NY.

You won't get a barrage of side dishes like you would at a typical Korean restaurant in most major metropolitan area Korean restaurants in the U.S. But, the lack of side dishes didn't bother us because the quality of the dishes we ordered more than made up for it. It's surprising that among a tiny Korean population in Barcelona a quality Korean restaurant can be found considering the lack of resources and difficult access for Korean ingredients that are needed to make good Korean food.

If you're in Barcelona and you crave some good quality Korean food, San Kil is the place to go.

A great surprise in Gracia! The place looks charmless and awful. They might have the TV on, but here I've tried the best Korean food in town! Half the clientele is Korean, and that's a hint you're gonna eat the real stuff (and huge portions!) Don't miss it!
