“Skip This Restaurant”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012 via mobile

The food is decent, but what takes it from "average" to "poor" is the price and atmosphere. The restaurant decor is very elegant, but theY had a big screen TV blaring American pop music videos at 8:00 PM as we ate dinner. Service was slow and impersonal. I would not recommend unless you're desperate for Korean/Chinese (both are served).

“What a welcome relief from Turkish food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2011

After a week of Turkish food, we were in real need of something different. We stumbled across Seoul restaurant and saw lots of tour groups coming out of it so we were a bit dubious. However, it was so good! It was so fresh and delicious and we loved all the side dishes and the soup that was complimentary. Will go back there when we are in Istanbul again.

“Not that good”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2009

Was staying in Istanbul for the week and was excited to see the Seoul Korean Restaurant in the neighborhood. Was very disappointed with it. Food was not that good, meats were really dry and food was flavorless. Service was pretty slow as they seem to cater to large bus groups and let couples or individuals fall through the cracks. Was also a bit pricey for what we got. I would not recommend this restaurant.
