  • I was looking for a Korean tradition that would exposed me to the various forms of Korea performing arts. I found it exactly here at Korea House. This is my friends and I first time in Korea. I booked...  more »
  • We came here for dinner during our vacation in Seoul. we tried the basic prefix menu which costs around $60/person. The price does NOT meet the taste plus the portion was too small. I won't recommend ...  more »

  • We had a party of 400 non-korean people at Korea House on mid September.2016. This place is very spacious. First 200 people seat down at out side.if wether permited, our door party available. Second group party were held inside. Everyone enjoyed the korean food. Many people got impressed by Verity of korean food and drinks. Some foreigners who don't like spicy or not familiar to Asian foos then may don't like Korea House. Pricey but worth it to have a good korean food for non korean.
  • Korean traditional house setting with court yard. It is impressive setting for non-Koreans to experience Korean culture and food.
  • I don't really give reviews online, but I believe visitors should stay away from this restaurant, as my experience was totally disappointing. I would give zero star if I could. My wife and I went to Seoul in October 2015 for our honeymoon. Although we haven't been to South Korea before, we do enjoy plenty of authentic Korean food in Sydney. We picked this restaurant as we saw the good reviews on the internet. However, we were extremely disappointed after having the Royal Cuisine. Before visiting the restaurant, I made a booking via email and to make sure we could have the "Royal Meal". Although I've got a response saying food did not need to be ordered in advance, I was told at the restaurant that "Royal Meal" need to be ordered in advance... I admit that the service was good, and good service is common in Seoul, but the food was extremely bad. The meat was rough and the food was cold. We were expecting authentic traditional Korean food, but we ended up having some westernised/fusion dishes... The meal was a disaster not only because of the low quality of the food, but also the environment. We were lead into a room where all foreigners dinning together, while I saw Koreans were allowed to dined in spacious traditional rooms. For all the unpleasant hours I spent in this restaurant, I was charged $350 AUD for a 4-person meal. That is very unreasonable for the quality of food provided, as a good Korean Bulgogi (BBQ) dinner for 2-person would cost less than $100 AUD in Seoul... That said, Seoul is a great modern city and I really enjoyed staying there. This was a bad experience, but other local restaurants I've been to were extremely good. I believe this place was setup to rip off tourists... For visitors who's travelling to South Korea and looking for a Royal Cuisine, please look somewhere else and stay away from this restaurant!
  • I'HAVE IS SEOUL IS FIVE STAR THANKS THE SEOUL ONCE πŸ’‘πŸ’‘OH IS MODERN HAS GOOD A CEK THE YES FINE FINE πŸ˜€πŸ˜€
