밑반찬도 메뉴도 다 너무 맛있어요.. (한국인이면 김치도 서비스로 주신다는..) 파리에 한식당은 많지만 가격대비 만족감 높았던 곳은 처음 이 식당이 처음이었어요 정말 추천합니다! 공기밥도 아주 푸짐,, 한가지 단점은 아니지만 으흠? 이런 점은 닭불고기와 돼지불고기의 소스가 같았다는 것,,? 저는 닭갈비를 예상했지만 빨간 불고기 소스에 볶아진 닭고기였어요(근데 우선...맛있음) 불고기 종류가 많았는데 다 소스가 같다면 메뉴의 다양성이 약간 아쉽네요..! 다음엔 찌개류 먹어보러 가겠습니다,, The best reasonable priced Korean restaurant in Paris! The menus were so good, even the side dishes :)More

Nice food for people that like Korean food. Price wise very good for Parisian standards. Nice waiter who spoke English which made it easier for our tourist to make menu choices.

Might be the only one, also ^^ Nevertheless, excellent place, very good bibimbap and grill. I sort of fell for their cinnamon crepe as a dessert. This one is a regular haunt of us, I even brought my parents over...

We have only tried the bibimbap but it was excellent ! We loved the way it was presented in a very hot stone bowl with the rice still cooking at the bottom. The taste was really good with the meat nicely cooked, very soft. Don't...forget to accompany it with some kimchi, a bit expensive in my opinion for the amount you get. 1 portion isn't enough for 1 person. I'll advise at least 2 portions if not 3, depending on taste.More

It is a FRENCH Korean foods. It is ok for lunch, but it is not a proper Korean restaurant. If you are a korean’s foods lover & had been travel to Korea & had a authentic Korean foods in many countries this is not a...place you’re looking for. Not everything is available on what’s menu said. Although, their lunch is good.More

Sesame & Sel is only a few minutes from the apartment, we've walked past it many times but haven't tried it until today. They open for dinner at 7, we arrived about 7:15 and by 8 the room was over 1/2 full. Two large groups...of asian French speakers, and a smattering of non-asians. For a Korean restaurant, the customer mix alone is a good sign. The menu has multiple offerings from assorted ala-cart choices to various menu combinations. We opted for assorted choices: Dakangeong, sautéd pieces of chicken meat, in a garlic and spicy sauce, was excellent and enough to be a full meal for one. Modeum Jeon is an appetizer combination of fried shrimp (excellent) a couple of zucchini slices tempura-fried, two potatoe-scallion pancakes and two __I don't know what patties. All were tasty. Note we ordered the small version, plenty for two people. I ordered Kimchi Jigae, it was flavorful and good without being too spicy. She ordered a bibimbap and it (I tasted a sample) was also very good. Our main choices were accompanied by some pickled green beans, a bit of pickled sprouts and some pickled cucumber slices. We both had a scoop of black sesame ice-cream. We'd ordered a 1/2 bottle of Pouilly Fusse but they did not have it so settled for a pitcher of white. Note that the menu with three choices might have a more economical option, but in the end it all came to only 64 euro.More

We have tried it as it was well noted in Tripadvisor. We took Bibimbap with beef and pork for the mains and dumplings and fried chicken in sesam. It all tasted good, though it was not crazily exceptional. Service was fine, though a little slow.
