This place is located within Myeongdong which is a great place after all the shopping to have a pot of hot boiling ginseng chicken soup, especially in cold winters. The shop makes you feel like walking back to what it was forty years ago. They...More

Tried the Samgyetang recently, not to my taste. The soup tasted like MSG unlike other Samgyetang that we had tried.

We visited this place, because many people mentioned it. We were traveling in a family of 3. Since we already had many street food before arriving in the restaurant, we just wanted to order one samgyetang to try. Initially, the staff didn't allow and wanted...More

Others have complained about the bland taste, which is in a sense true. The place had lots of photos of Japanese celebrities visiting the show and reviews from the Japanese press, all dates some years back. Mostly tourists so yes we suspected that this would...More

Our first trip to South Korea. We tried this and another restaurant named Tosokchon. Frankly, the soup here is not as good as Tosokchon. The flavour and portion are both disappointing.

The food was disgusting. The chicken was drowning in a flavorless broth, the rice was over cooked, the side dishes was an embarrassment, almost insulting compared to all the amazing Korean food we've had.

Yummy Korean ginseng chicken in Myeongdong. They don't use the normal white chicken, expect the black chicken instead. Ginseng used in the dish is reasonable too. They also serve other chicken dishes, not just samgyetang. :-)
