The restaurant has a short menu which means that they focus on their core specialities. I had dumplings and it was for me a first time in Korea to have dumplings with a thin skin. Till today I only had these at TTF in Taipei....More

Decided to go for a simple dinner after 6+ hours of flight; and visiting Myeonydong Kyoja (main) turned out to be a good choice. A resturant with limited choice of items in the menu but the food is delicious and price is reasonable. My husband...More

Just wonder why there’s a long queue on this restaurant. We tried kyoja which is nice but the cold noodles with sweet soup smell like beans and nuts, taste quite terrible. We skipped the noodle and felt quite disappointed. Maybe Korean people love it but...More

Delicious! One order each of kalguksu and mandu was plenty enough for two adults and teenage girl. One of our best meals in Seoul.

We came to this place after seeing a lot of positive reviews and were not disappointed. The service was vey fast and the food tasty and a good size. Did feel a little rushed to leave but no real issue as the food came quickly.

Comforting soup, served very hot. Noodle texture is good too. Strong kim chi though. Big serving. Can serve two for medium eaters.

Arguably Seoul’s most famous neighborhood and
undoubtedly one of its most popular, Myeongdong takes
shopping and eating to new heights, with hundreds of
shops, restaurants, and cafes all stacked on top of
one another. The rise in popularity of Korean
cosmetics, fashion, and more has made this area a
must-see for visitors who come and marvel at
Myeongdong’s often frenetic pace and energy. Lotte and
