Most of the food here is good pub grub but they don't really do customizations. The buffalo chicken sandwich is delicious but in no way like a buffalo chicken sandwich

Brilliant place with a classic western, lived in look and feel. Warm service. Good choice of Beer and Cocktails with some yummy finger food. Their Onion rings though a trifle oily are my all time favourite!

Geckos gets lots of traffic and it seems to have gone to the managers head! A mistaken order for a drink is charged, rather than poured our and strayed again. I have spent many hours in many bars around Asia and this is the first...More

Although we are not 'bar' folk, we like the friendly atmosphere and delicious fish-n-chips at the Jukjeon Geckos, and 'eat-out' there about once a month. It's also my husband's standing venue for his large birthday parties every year...now a tradition! Family-friendly as long as your...More

Neighboring the immense Yongsan American Garrison,
Itaewon was once shunned by locals as a seedy, red
light district. But within the past few years, Itaewon
and its surrounding neighborhoods such as Kyunglidan
and Haebangchong have undergone a major revival to
quickly become one of Seoul’s hottest areas. Here,
