The food is good but not distinguishable. Service is not very attentive, and about one third of the staff don't speak English. The decor is kind of non-descript. The set lunch is exceptionally good value, but it's also..quite bad. To avoid unless you stay at the Amara hotel or are stuck in this area of town.

I have been to this place a dozen times and have always said that the true test of a good KOrean restaurant is when you bring Korean guests there. The side dishes are just as good i.e. the staple kimchi and the other vegetables sides. My favorite is the Sangae Tang or Ginseng Chicken Soup. The beef barbecues are very delectable and the cooking is all done by the expert hands of the waitresses. There is no smoke coming into the resturant as the smoke is sucked in by a fan underneath the hot plate. You can also order the pre cooked bulgogi or kogees which tend to be a little overcooked. But sweet nevertheless.

You could also opt to have a room reservation and it does not have to have a minimum spend or a different room menu (unlike some Japanese restaurants). There is defintely value for money because you could keep ordering the side dished without loading up on the $$$.

I highly recommend this restaurant for those who have not ventured into true Korean cuisines. Of course you will not find puffer fish or other expensive stuff which is quite common in Seoul. But you will certainly find the right range of tastes here.

Hyang To Gol is one of the posher Korean restaurants, with fairly nice and comfortable surroundings within a hotel. Hence it is a more appropriate setting for business lunches.

The menu is extensive with a good variety of banchan. Portion sizes are decent, and if going with a larger crowd, you can also book the private dining room.

Prices vary, the set lunches are quite reasonably priced but the dinner menu is much pricer.

They serve a heavenly homemade sweet ginger with pine nut tea after the meal - it is refillable if you ask nicely.

Since the food quality is good, it's really value for money to go during lunchtime. For dinner time, it's probably better to go with a crowd to enjoy the wide variety of food and split the costs.

Good place to go for anyone willing to experience Korean food in Singapore.
Quite a wide variety of appetizers and also a fairly long list of main courses.
