  • This was the highlight of my trip to Seoul! The show here was fantastic! A must see for anyone visiting Seoul. The quality of the performance was top-notch! Worth every penny!! 
  • After a nice imperial diner at the Korea house, we went into this relatively small theater with a bit less than 200 seats. Quickly, the show started : this was a blast from the start to the end ! The ...  read more »
  • Yes, it is expensive but this is one of the few tourist friendly places where you can try the Imperial cuisine (food only the king used to eat). You will not find the Imperial cuisine in your home cou...  read more »
  • 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!
