It was the best of best korean restaurant. The taste of food was not strong but mild, You can taste what is real best korean food. The food here was served to the royal family during the Joseon Dynasty. Compared to food quality and service levels, food prices are not expensive. 경험해본 한정식중 최고의 음식이다. 음식의 맛은 강하지 않고 부드럽지만 그래서 오히려 은은하게 한식의 제맛을 느끼게 해준다. 옛날 왕이 먹던 음식이었지만 시대가 변해 일반인도 맛볼 수 있게 되었으니 얼마나 다행인가. 최고의 음식, 최고 수준의 서빙에 비해 오히려 음식값은 비싸지 않다.

Dear Nicksyang Thank you very much for the compliment. As you say, Royal Cuisine is the best dishes in Korean Food that is much softer and milder than what we use to enjoy these days. We will devout to serve the best quality dishes, the cozy environment, and the best hospitality with the introduction of the Real Korean Food Culture. Appreciate your deep interests in The Legitimacy of Korean Royal Cuisine. Jihwaja Seoul

We are a group of 8 from Singapore looking forward to the Royal cuisine meal sets for US 125 per head. The ambience of the restaurant is normal, nothing spectacular or reminiscent of royalty and imperial setting. We were served by two young English speaking staff who did not explain the food except pointed to the menu. Totally different from previous reviews showed. Then I was most upset when I asked for a cup of hot water and the staff told me I need to pay US $2 because " the restaurant does not provide free water". I rebuked his rude remark and I said we pay total US 1000 for this dinner and do not tell me that your restaurant does not have & provide hot water. He was very rigid in his reply. I repeated several times that the hotel surely has hot water to brew tea or coffee or for cooking !!! So why can't you spare me one cup of hot water?? The staff just walked away. Though Mr. Han (manager or supervisor) said later that there were misunderstandings that the staff thought i want bottle water. I cannot accept this explanation. Mr Han who can speak English well, definitely knew what I wanted, yet he sided with his staff. The menu photos showed tempting and delicious dishes yet they turned out not value for money. Though the ingredients are very fresh, they are too pricey and would at best be valued at much less than charged. Service is a letdown for a 5 star rating restaurant by some patrons/reviewers. We would expect that for a Royal Banquet, we would get not only a Royal Feast, but Royal Treatment, Royal Ambience and Royal Satisfaction.

Dear Ng First of all, I am sorry that you did not like the interior and quiet atmosphere for our restaurant. For the other thing I would like to explain something regarding the serving free water. Jihwaja always serves Hot Corn and Barley Tea with free and also free to serve Hot Boiled Tap water. As same to any other restaurants, we sell Bottle of Mineral water like an Avian. You just ordered my colleage a cup of Hot water. But he understanded that you want Boiled Mineral water like other guests. So he was trying to explain that we are selling Mineral water with boiling and also trying to explain that Hot boiled Tap water is absolutely free. My colleague and I asked if the hot water you requested was Mineral water or Tap water. But you did ask just still Hot boiled water with free. So I served a Hot boiled Mineral water with free so that you were not gonna feel bad. I did not tell you about it. It is a very small hospitality for our guests. Please understand our efforts. Also please understand that English is not the main language in Korea. So the meaning of communication is sometimes conveyed incorrectly. If our explanation about Free Hot boiled water was not delivered to you exactly, excuse it with your broad mind. Personally, I and my colleagues are proud of not having much difficulty communicating with foreign customers with other foreign languages including English, Japanese, and Chinese. Most of our staffs including foreign part time workers has native and second languages with Korean. I think that this miscommunication would have made you feel worse about our dishes and hospitality. With open mind please understand it. Anyway, we all reviewed your reputation at today's meeting and keep in mind that we need to have more clear explanation for the best hospitality. I know your comment has been put on Google review with same content. Please forgive us even if our efforts didn't meet your mind. Thank you very much for your review, and please deliver our thanks to your friends for the tip. Hope everything is going well with you and your friends. Best regards, Mr. Han Jihwaja

We wanted to try something different from the usual korean fare and chose this highly rated restaurant to celebrate my birthday. Was looking forward to an elaborate meal, given how pricey the degustation sets are (we opted for Deluxe royal and Royal courses). Location was a tad far out but first impression was good. We were welcomed and shown to table by Mr Han, whose service was impeccable. When the meal started, we were served by 2 young service staff. The first few courses were served without explanation other than this is item 1, 2 etc (pointing to menu). Unlike previous reviews sharing each dish was explained and even linked back to historical royal cuisine, we were left perplexed what was on plate and felt rushed to eat as they checked in quite frequently, to clear out and serve next dish. We tried adopting a different approach by asking questions instead, but while the staff were polite, we didn’t get much from them. Not sure if it was due to them seemingly not as comfortable conversing in English. The saving grace was when Mr Han came by and i gave some feedback. Although it was already at tail-end of menu, appreciated he made efforts to come by our table more often, guided the young staff and shared with us interesting facts about the dishes. Rated a 4 star solely for this. In all, the food is different from the mainstream and one may find it more bland. The highlight should be the linkage to royal cuisine in the past, but experience will differ depending on the service staff efforts.

Dear m5quer10 Appreciate your kind reputation for us. First of all, we apologize for not properly explaining as you wishes at the beginging of your nice banquet. We misplaced the server that doesn't speak English well on your table. It was severe misake to you. As you say, we will study more about Korean food and royal cuisine in foreign languages including English, Japanese, and other languages. Also trying to explain the characteristics, history, and ingredients of the Korean food with much time on the table. Thank you very much for a step ahead and looking forward to serving you in the future again with serving perfect hospitality. Best wishes, All of our staffs

Really enjoyed our experience during our trip to Seoul! We were seated in a private room, which was quiet and very comfortable. Mr. Han and the other staff were very accommodating and provided detailed descriptions of the food and its history as we enjoyed the set menu. Would definitely recommend coming to Jihwaja for both the food and the cultural experience!

Korean Cuisine is always a cultural journey but what is amazing is how the restaurant has been awarded with National Intangible Cultural Heritage No 38. with 3 successions of master. A true blue Korean Royal Cuisine, that is Jihwaja. My husband and I had decided to gave ourselves a treat to a royal feast that was such a memorable birthday celebration that we will never forget. An experience of royalty, excellent execution of food cum excellent service. Mr Han has been very patiently sharing each dishes and the history behind it. The journey through the meals was paired nicely with their Makgeolli and 黄酒 (direct translation yellow wine) that has a hint of plum (ume). Each dish has been prepared with great pride and intricacy. The balance of ying and yang that is coupled with nutritional ingredients from the herbs and flavor. We both had a full belly when we left the restaurant. I understand from Mr Han, the master still comes into the restaurant to ensure the quality of the food is maintained. I have to say they have been fantastic. Food that I love in the deluxe course : the beef Tartar, the platter of nine delicacies, meat skewer, braised abalone and sea cucumber, I love the abalone porridge and dessert. The rest were excellent but this was my personal favorite. What was more amazing was their service. They have been very attentive and detailed to ensure we had a great meal and experience. But what follows was beyond my expectation. My husband had erroneously left his credit card behind. Mr Han and staff had tried multiple ways to locate us and finally manage to get to us via the hotel. Mr Han had personally drove to the bar the same evening to pass the card back to my husband. I had only experienced this 5 star service on one of the trips in Japan. But this is my second and I have to say they deserved more than 5 stars. What a great experience and wonderful hospitality. Some of the starred restaurant may not be able to deliver the same kind of passion that Jihwaja have. It is not only the food, experience, service but the heart to the stomach was through their heart of serving and making the guest felt truly honor.

We are happy that you and your lovely husband got to your home. Also glad that you enjoyed our food and the story behind each dish..I think there are basic things in restaurant operation. Very simple. We have to have not only Helthy natural ingredients(Non artficial taste and fravor) with all our hearts. but also to serve with deep warmness in any condition. We are just doing to follow the good merits just same to cooking and hospitality of Korean Royal Cuisine in the courts. That is why our guests enjoy Jihwaja as a whole experience. Some time we are heading to this kind of happening but this was not a big deal for us if losts get back to the our guess. Get the card back to you safely is also our big pleasure. Thank you very much for your long and kind review for us. Hope to see you with your children in the future. All of or wishes, Jihwaja Seoul

After eating a lot of Korean street food, I had really looked forward to experiencing the more refined Korean Royal Cuisine at Jihwaja. The banquet I reserved was the most deluxe tasting menu of 14 courses, which I had read would last 3 hours. So I settled in for a unique and unhurried dining experience.The food was superb - beautifully and delicately arranged. Interestingly, I was the only guest in the entire place at 7pm on a Wednesday. The evening was ruined by the Manager rushing to serve each course, hovering, pacing, spying on me to see when I was finished so he could whisk out another dish at the same time he cleared my last one. I felt like I was being watched the entire time, which was very unsettling. It was as if he wanted me out so he could go home early. Given the high price of the menu and significance and history of the cuisine, I’d have expected a more thorough explanation of the dishes and their ingredients, but alas, that too was rushed, and I ended up eating things I wasn’t sure the origin of. I was in and out in one hour and 10 minutes, far from the three hour affair advertised. The MANAGER of such an esteemed establishment should have known better. Again, given the esteem and history of royal cuisine, it might have been nice to have some background music or even better live music featuring traditional Korean instruments, but there was just dead silence. I left very disappointed.

Dear 1238 Thank you for the compliment of the food and more for pointing out our mistakes. We are so sorry that we didn't let you enjoy your banquet slowly and comfortably. It was an absolute mistake to you. Our staff's feeling was that you were enjoying deliciously and quickly, so the serving speed was moderate. It was a big mistake. We should have asked if the course serving speed, as usual, was adequate. He didn't even ask that. He also forgot to play music. It was all because we were lazy. This kind of little mistake and laziness disappoints a great customer and reminds us more tension during the serving. Once again, We will remember your true words and you will be very satisfied with us on your next visit. Please be sure to tell us. Thank you very much and all of our wishes, Jihwaja staffs,

Absolutely the worst meal we have ever had. The place is rundown and tired looking. But the worst of all was the actual food- barely edible. Whatever the pretext of “Royal cuisine “ and historic pictures- the food was just awful. At a cost of $420 for the two of us. For comparison, the night before we had an amazing Korean food dinner at a random place for $60. Do yourself a favor, don’t come here. The fact that an elderly owner (or a manager) comes and gives you a talk about how royal your experience is, does not help the feeling that you are ripped off, because you are!!

I was celebrating my birthday and my daughter's birthday there at the end of December. I not only enjoyed the true authentic Royal Cuisine but also deeply experienced Korean culture. They successfully combined the food with art and culture. The restaurant's history and how dedicated and determined the owner and his Mom were to preserve Korean culture through food really inspired me and my daughter. We were not only able to have some of the finest food we've had in Korea but it was a profound and priceless learning experience we will never forget. The staff and the owner treated us like family members. It was a beautiful journey. No doubt, we had an unforgettable night in the restaurant. I am planning to visit the restaurant every time we visit Seoul.

As fans of Dae Janggeum, we knew we needed to fit this into our itinerary. We chose to try the Janggeum Manchan and Grilled Beef Ribs tasting menus and thoroughly enjoyed our experience here. The service was impeccable, and we really appreciated the effort Mr. Han went through to share what made each dish so special. It was both a lovely dining and an enriching cultural experience, and while you can enjoy incredible modern Korean dining experiences around the world these days, if you want to taste and gain a greater appreciation of traditional Korean cuisine, highly recommend making time in your trip to dine at Jihwaja.

What a special evening with friends visiting Seoul for the first time! After touring all the palaces in Seoul, we were delighted to have a royal Korean dinner at Jihwaja. It was delicious and every course was explained well to us before we dug in. Plus, all the food was presented beautifully.

I would recommend this restaurant for the great and unique experience. It’s a walking distance from Gwanghwamun so I went there for lunch after the palace visit. I opted for one of the royal degustation menu and totally enjoyed it. Even the portion was adjusted to a modern non-royal person, it was still a sumptuous menu, so skip your breakfast 😛 each dish was a feast for the eye and I can imagine the effort putting into preparation of the food. Surprisingly, it was really healthy and easy to digest. It has a well balance of vegetable, meat and seafood. The service was great, I’m explained on each of the course/ dish in details. I would love to come back and try other item on the menu.

Great experience. Food was excellent and so was the staff. Thank you for this once in a lifetime experience. We visited during a national holiday but they were still so accommodating. It was pouring when we were leaving and it was hard to hail a cab so they offered to call one for us. They even offered to drive us to our hotel if no taxi ever come to pick us up. I also appreciate the printouts that explain the history of the family behind the restaurant as well as the royal cuisines that inspired the meals.

Dear RFG64 Thank you for your kind compliment for our course and hospitality. There are two characteristics of the Korean Royal Banquet, Authentic Korean food culture. One is that cooks and servers must be SINCERE when cooking or serving dishes. The other is to use natural ingredients according to the season. As much as we can do, we would like to follow these two essencials. Appreciate your visiting and praise to us. Looking forward to meeting you in the future.
