“Good Korean family food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2014 via mobile

The restaurant is next to the university campus and was packed with Korean students. I was the only white man there. A good sign.
I picked some dish that a girl ate and looked good. Spicy Macarel hot pot.
It was very good , full of flavor but a bit spicy for me , and I like spicy food. They certainly cater to Korean taste and not trying to Americanize the food. That's what's so great about it. I would certainly come back.

“Transported to Seoul, Korea”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2012

I was stationed in Seoul, Korea as a young 2nd Lt a long, long time ago. Always enjoyed Korean food but hadn't found an authentic restaurant. Look no more and Cafe Seoul is the real deal. Had a wonderful lunch of some of my favorite dishes. I will definitely go again!

“Never had Korean but I really like this”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2010

Really good Korean food in Eugene that seemed really authentic since it's run by a mom and pop kinda deal. It's relatively hidden downstairs of a building but it's worth the find. The people who own/run it are super nice and friendly even though they may not be understanding everything you are saying. I was surprised how much I enjoyed the food. There are traditional Koren dishes but aslo "mainstream" chicken and beef dishes that anyone would love and it's definitely worth the go.

“Delightful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2010

This is the best Korean food in Eugene (very authentic) and will make everyone a fan of the cuisine. Its tucked away downstairs so the meal feels relatively private, the gentleman and his wife that own it are courteous and caring, and the food always has the best, freshest ingredients that every Korean lover knows are important to making the dishes perfect. Its always a treat to go here for me. The decor is a little plain and you don't have to worry about dressing about, but you sure will feel like a king when you leave with a stomach full of delicious food and probably some leftovers!
