Chili King used to be my favorite for this rare occasions when I want to have a burger on the weekend and hence we went back on Saturday around 2pm. I should have been suspicious as we were the only customers... Burgers were disappointing- the...More

I have been living in Seoul for over 5 years now and still know the old Chili King - smaller place just up the road operated by the founder. Much has changed since then - first of all, Keving (the Canadian founder) had big ambition...More

If this is a good canadian burger place, then I really don´t like canadian burgers. We tried 3 different burgers, all of them were disappointing. Would really not recommend this place to anyone.

I went here once during the daytime for a burger. Pretty decent burger. Nothing about the place to write home about. Maybe I'll return in the future.

The reviews on here are pretty good, but the food isn't. I ordered the wings and they were very small. The spinach dip was average. The price for eight small wings was 9900 Won, so definitely not a reasonably priced place for what you get....More

Been here a couple of times now. The burgers are excellent and full of flavor but the sides are lacking. The coleslaw doesn't have much flavor and the fries are just alright but the yummy burgers certainly make up for it.

The Canadian owner Kevin will not disappoint you with his delicious grub. Food like this is hard to find in Seoul. I have taken many friends there and they all loved it. If you like spicy, your palate will have a great adventure here. Of...More

Neighboring the immense Yongsan American Garrison,
Itaewon was once shunned by locals as a seedy, red
light district. But within the past few years, Itaewon
and its surrounding neighborhoods such as Kyunglidan

Voted best burger in Seoul! Burgers for all appetites from the simply delectable "Jalapeno Ranch", the "Chili Burger" with homemade chili, to the awe inspiring "King Kev" and finally, Zeus the Burger of the Gods. All ingredients fresh and prepared with that homemade touch.
