+ They serve delicious cuts of both pork and beef! (some places only have either one) +The staff will help you out if you are a newbie. + Very good banchans and sauces to go along with the meat. Although they did not serve us...any kimchi which would have been nice. + Its all on genuine glowing hot charcoal. + Good price quality ratio!More

What served and presented on menu with photo were entirely different. I ordered the most expensive Korean beef with marble vein and specified thin cut. What served was thick cut with literally no marble vein. I think that they were serving me those sub-standard portion...knowing that we are tourist. I went there at around 5:30 pm and felt cheated. Very disappointed. From now on I have hesitation on the high rating of TripAdvisor as they rank top high.More

Hongik University station exit 1, turn right and then turn right again down the alley -youll see it. We just arrived from the airport and were starving, would have settled for anything but this place has high ratings and was easy to find. Wagyu was...the way to go, and the Kimchi soup is very spicy. Will definitely go back again this trip.More

Serves great BBQ meat and reasonably priced for the location. And free coffee! Good to be early before 7pm to avoid the crowd especially on weekends. Located near Exit 1 Hongik University St (Line 2)

Ordered the Wagyu and marinated pork ribs through the “tourist” menu which allow you to easily choose your food as it is in English. They provided best options and popular options so you can easily make a choice. They serve a free soup which was...so delicious and their sides of pickles etc was also so so good. Their meat was so tender and juicy that u don’t even need any sauce to go with them simplify delicious. Just go and try it. I am currently considering going to eat it again wow. It is located behind Hongik Uni exit 8. Come up and it will be on the street behind. You can see it quite easily.More

occasional amateur street performances, creativity and
expression make up the wild and beating heart of
vibrant Hongdae. At the Free and Hope Market (weekends
at the Hongdae Children’s Playground) you'll find one
of Seoul’s most popular handmade and creative markets
