Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is the place to try Korean barbecue. From the meat to the vegetables, everything is fresh and delicious. You can tell how much the locals love it because they all sit down with a smile. The staff actually cooked the meal for us. Some...of the locals appeared to prefer cooking themselves. Note to those with shellfish allergies, mussels and clams come with the vegetable hot pot, so be sure a mention that you don’t want them and be sure they didn’t just remove them from the pan and bring it out without them. I don’t know that they do that, but is important to clarify this.More

Great authentic Korean food, cooked at your table, in a surrounding full of happy Korean groups of friends. As noted in another review it may be a bit difficult to find, but if you follow Google maps and look into the alleys you will find...it without problems. Not very cheap but worth it!More

The food and service was superb. All you have to do is order and eat. They will cook for you. And teach you the right way of eating as well. They also have ice cream! We did not see this place in naver but thankfully,...i saw one comment here that this is near Paris baguette. If you are facing Paris baguette, look for a small alley on your right. It’s there.More

While it was hard to find (it’s near Paris Baguette) it is worth the effort. They helped us order and cooked the meat for us then told us how to eat it with all the side dishes and condiments. We had thinly sliced beef brisket...and pork belly and beef sirloin. There was a (spicy) crab and mussel broth that came with it. Highlight for the kids was the free soft serve ice cream for dessert. Tastes like frozen condensed milk. Don’t be intimidated by the lack of English. Staff were lovely.More

Off the road in a little pathway is this wokbarbecue restaurant. You get small slices of beef to wok and many small dishes and a clam soup. Serve yourself softice as desert. For less skilled eaters you can get a fork. Real korean food and...friendly staff.More
