Great Korean BBQ place. A little more expensive than budget BBQ places but the taste explains why. I used to live in Gwangju city. I now live in a much bigger (and better) city but I go back to Gwangju just for Minsokchon! If you go, please get the pork galbi where they place the tea or water stuff on... More

Kind of hard to find but once found this place it is awesome. Highly recommended for authentic korean barbecue dishes. Very attentive staff, decently priced food, much cheaper than Seoul, and very good food. Will definitely return when given a chance.

I would love to go back here! Staff were attentive and helped us with the menu & the cooking of the meat. Just order whatever looks good, everything was amazing. And make sure you use the condiments, because it really adds to the dishes!

I've been to the many Minsokchon's around Gwangju. This one is a particular favorite because even the Seoulite I took there was super impressed. The food (grilled meat) and side dishes were fresh and delicious. The noodles after were also a great way to end a fun kalbi dinner. The atmosphere is 'traditional' Korea, but there is chair seating as... More

Just trust the staff - they know what to bring you. My children & husband were all impressed - and we even ate fried lettuce! Yum.

This is a franchise restaurant but it does try to bring a traditional feel to proceedings. It's big, so you won't feel as cosy as in some small family-run place.

The line out the door on the Sunday afternoon we ate here was a sure-fire sign that the restaurant was a local hit. We were quickly seated, ordered the pork and bimbibap. Both dishes were exception. The coleslaw/salad with mandarin oranges they serve is incredible. I will definitely come back to Gwangju for this place. The prices reasonable for the... More

Went here to have dinner with my friends. The place has good, family-ish atmosphere. The food we ate were good, and the price was also affordable.
