Ingredients are fresh, food is delicious and price is reasonable. We ordered the beef bibimbap, the chicken bibimbap, and the cheese kimchi pancake.

CYC ( 22.11.04 ) My family visited this restaurant for lunch with bibimbab. The restaurant was crowded in early time, and we waited our turn. We ordered bibimbab that was signature menu, that's excellent to us with makgeolli. The staff was kind, and the atmpshere...was good and bright. The price was a little high, but it was worth to pay. Excellent food to us.More

The Bibimbap and the crispy cheesy pancake are really good!!! The price is reasonable as well. However, it’s quite a long walk from Myeongdong train station.

This restaurant is located in a traditional wooden house on the slopes of Namsan Hill. Order the food from the front entrance, pick up a buzzer and find a table. When the buzzer goes off pick up the food. Serves very traditional Korean dishes including...Bibimbap. After the meal return trays to the kitchen area. Be prepared for spicy dishesMore

For my last night in Korea I wanted REALLY GOOD bibimbap. This place came up everywhere. I took the metro to myeongdong station and as I came out there was a torrential downpour happening. It’s not far from the station but in a thunder storm...it was far enough to get drenched even in a rain coat. I came in soaked and they greeted me without worrying about the puddle I left. They gave me a menu and instructed me to come to the counter when I ordered. I got the beef bulgogi bibimbap for W9500. It was ready in minutes and by god it was so worth getting soaked for. Excellent food and service and well worth going out of your way to get to!More

Great place to eat. It is a bit out of the way and may be difficult to find. Doesn’t seem many tourists make it here. It’s worth the efforts. Their bibimbap is quite good, the place is clean, the staff friendly.

Service was fast, price was reasonable given that it is a Michelin-star restaurant. However, the food was average at best.. nothing fancy and nothing that I believe deserves a Michelin-star. There are many other restaurants deserving of a star as compared to this place.

To find this place walk across the bottom cable car, car park with main building behind you, when you reach the road look on the oposite side slightly to the left and you will see a set of stairs. Short climb and when you reach...the top, its obvious. Its the Hanok style building infront. Building beautiful, went here at night, looked great lit up. Seating all at the rear so difficult to see if any views during the day. You choose your meal, pay at the till and wait for your buzzer to go off, then you collect your tray from the service point ( and clear after you have eaten). Food: Wife had Bugolgi Bibimbap which was a nice portion and tasted good. I chose the Yukhoe bibimbap...........specifically as Yukhoe is my fav. Mine came out and I asked where the Yukhoe was........the guy pointed to a small side dish........there was more kimchi in the side dish next to it ! Very small portion - not impressed! The most expensive dish on the menu! The other issue was we waited over 30 mins to be served ( buzzer go off) We didnt get our meal until just after 20.00 hrs ( an important time in this place) . 30 mins isnt that long in a British place but in Korea this is strange, other people were going up that had come in after us , before us. Went to till to ask for more Yukhoe..........told sorry we shut at 20.00!!!! This did seem to be just full of tourists, there was a massive Chinese tour group, with their guides bringing the food out and pictures being taken of each person eating their meal. Kitchen clearly looks and feels like a production line, with 4 or 5 trays being set up on the top servery then just moved down for people to collect. Home made Herbal tea was nice, they dont serve Alcohol. Overall food tasted OK, Our service was poor, Building nice in good location, they shut at 20.00hrs. PS if you want outstanding Yukhoe, go to Gwangjang Market - see my review Buchon Yukhoe.More

We saw some good reviews for this restaurant and were really hoping they were true after the little trek to get to it. I think w e chose the hardest possible route going up a number of stairs but regardless it was worth it. We...ordered at the register and then waited with a buzzer for our food. It felt a little food court-ish but the food was fast and delicious. I would recommend a visit to this restaurant for sure!More

My friends and I were quite excited to try out a Michelin starred bibimbap so we joined the long queue... but we found the bibimbap average... disappointing even. We went to another restaurant and the bibimbap was like waay better even though it did not...achieve Michelin. But the place was quaint and good for a stroll and some pictures.More
