    Must-do as well the show as lunch classic show "for tourists" but of very good quality, excellent musicians and dancers meal of very very good quality, which reconciles us with Korean food after twenty days of journey in the country where we were often faced with poor pitances...

    The food was ok but the show was very good. I loved how they interacted with the audience. I also loved that we go to explore the traditional houses that belonged to Korea House.  more »

    We took the menu at 88k won, worst experience we ever had, the food we received was no where near worth the amount of money, it's only a tourist attraction. There was no taste at all in any dish, nothing was really tasty, the ambiance was like in a hallway with neon light no decoration whatsoever. The only positive point is the waitress dressed in traditional clothes. I don't recommend to any one to visit this place, or at least to eat...

    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.

Where to stay in Seoul

The Seoul metropolitan area has two districts especially appealing to backpackers--Jongno just northeast of the city, and Hongdae to the west. Both offer good shopping and dining, as well as easy transport links to the rest of the city. Mid-range options may prove difficult to find in peak season (July to August), unless you don't mind staying at a traditional hanok guesthouse, where loads of character make up for any lack of amenities. Finally, a range of top-end hotels with an impressive list of services and facilities lie scattered around the city.
