My husband and I went to Myeongdong Kyoja restaurant after watching the Nanta show in Myeongdong (which was fun to watch). The noodle soup and dumplings were delicious but there definitely was a sense of rush in the restaurant. We had to order our food...More

The noodle is quite big for just one person. We should have ordered 1 and share it (so we can try other menus :P). The dumpling was also very nice, meat tasted more than the skin/flour part :) very sweet and savory. The restaurant is...More

The place is many decades old and still popular among both local and international foodies. The noodle soup and dumplings pairs so well and their freshly made gimchi is also very impressive. Only one downside, gimchi is great but beware it's all garlic that makes...More

The noodles are so smooth! The dumpling skins are so thin and with so much fillings in it. Will revisit next time. Convenient place.

I come here every time I visit Seoul and the quality of the kalguksu and the kimchi remains as high today as it was 20+ years ago. The broth is delicious, the noodles silky soft and the little dumplings included in every bowl are just...More

Compared to fame, it is very humble. It's a famous place, so the employees are arrogant. The quality and quantity of food is lower than ever before.

In the heart of the old downtown in Seoul, one must try Myeongdong Kyoja restaurant. This restaurant pioneered opening a kalguksu restaurant in Myeondong area and prospered. The taste seems to never change and as the PH3 mission statement of this restaurant, owners and staff...More

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

Yes, you can go for its hot noodles (8,000KRW) which is good for 1 person serving. Otherwise, you can opt for the dumplings (10,000KRW) if you can finish 10 pieces on your own.

Your hotel is quite close to it, best is to ask at the hotel as the resturant is not easy to find with google maps, we asked some people around and found it

Absolutely! I believe there are only four items on the menu and there are pictures in the wall. Hot noodle soup (kalguksu), dumplings (mandu), spicy cold noodles (bibim gooksu or bibim nengmyeon - not sure) and one other... More
