This place really did it for me. It started with excellent service. Each plate was delicious and fresh worth every dime spent. Highly recommend Myeong Ga, so far the best asian restaurant during this trip

I ate here recently on 2 consecutive weekday evenings. There's a good range of Korean dishes on the menu, and the food is good quality. Prices are reasonable, and the service is friendly and efficient.

Surprise to find a Korean restaurant in Montevideo. The owner is definitely Korean and provides legit Korean food. Had the bibimbap and it's really good. It's even better that it's so close to my hotel!

Well located restaurant, very close to the Radisson. The place is ugly, with cheap decoration and a single waiter for several tables. The food was very good and made the visit worthwhile.

Squid is very good. In an area which is dangerous to walk at night. The casino is across the road which makes for interesting people watching.
