It was our first time and we ordered the tasting menu for 21€/person without drinks. Totally recommended. Huge and delicious dishes, especially Bibim Bap. The weakest was cuttlefish dish. In our opinion, fish dishes are too expensive. It is not a fashion restaurant so decoration is very simple and basic. The service was very good and attentive. It is gratefully acknowledge catalan speaking from waiters. We are going to repeat!

FOOD: The Seoul offers a nice selection of startes, mains and desserts. We opted for one of the 3 availble tasting menus.

We paid 26.50 € per person for the menu (min 2 ppl). The names of the plates didn´t really tell me much, but I try to explain what it was: four mixed tapas; corean tortellini (dumplings); plate of ´snacks´ similar to sushi, but with beef instead of fish + vegetables; plate of sashimi served with wasabi, soy sauce and a spicy chilli sauce; plate of fried noodles with beef and vegetables; beef with onion and sesame served on a hot grill with extra lettuce and spice sauce so you can make your own ¨roll¨.

All courses were delicious, great quality and nicely spiced (sweet, sour, spicy.....) to really surprise your taste buds. Portions were generous.

SERVICE: Super friendly and fast. The waitress explained all courses to us and told us about the Korean food in general. Whenever we asked about the ingredients she was happy to explain. No waiting time, all courses were served quickly.

VALUE: Excellent. As said, generous portions and great quality for 26.50 € per person - including a lot of meat and fish.

LOCATION/ ATMOSPHERE: Just a few minutes walk from Sagrada Familia. The interior is basic, but comfortable and clean.

I was looking for a decent place where to taste Korean food in Barcelona and I think I found it. This is as close as it probably gets this side of Pyongyang although (maybe the ingredients?) it does taste different from what I had on the other side. Overall very satisfying, I had some empanadillas and then Bulgogi, very good. South Korean beer, on the other hand, is nothing to write home about. The service was great, there seems to be only one waiter, a Korean student in Barcelona but he is the man, he makes the whole experience even more enjoyable. There were quite a few Koreans dining, always a good sign.

Good korean food in bcn. Good set menus and very informal place (no dress code). Ask for bibimbap or any traditional korean dish

After seeing all the 5 star reviews, we got worked up to get some perfect korean meal. It wasnt that, but it was still nice. The place is not cheap, if u order more than a main course. But still if youre in the area, its a nice place to go to.
