“Nice place, bit different for Korea”
Reviewed 19 June 2012

I like this place. The menu is quite a unique/unusual fusion effort (with a lot of garlic!!). There are loads of these places and I visited the one in Mapo-Gu

“Great Restaurant”
Reviewed 23 May 2012

Service is good and the food is fantastic. Go back every week to try something else on the menu and haven't been disappointed yet. Pleasantly surprised with every visit.

“Just to try”
Reviewed 8 May 2012

Nice decor, and friendly staff. Even though our waiter didn.t even know what i on the menu.Garlic is everywhere, inside outside, top, on the side. Tower bread was disappointing. Gralic stuffed tenderloin(it was tender, i asked to have medium well, i had a rare instead. The garlic inside was already cooked so no taste at all. Pizza was a flat with no pizza basic sauce.
It was good for the price, but will no visit a second time. If you are looking for a nice coy restaurant it is the place t change from korean food. But if you are looking for fine dining, for sure it is not the place.

“New Korean chain”
Reviewed 19 February 2012

and not the worst if you absolutely need a break from Korean food, and don't want to travel or plunk down for really good stuff. MFG will suffice, and they are friendly enough.

“Overpriced Italian but a nice environment.”
Reviewed 6 January 2012

We went because we had a coupon but the food was average at best. I think there are much better independent Italian restaurants in Korea that this and at much better prices. Nice restaurant though, the design I mean :)
