This place serves average Korean food. The hotpot I had here was OK but it was a bit too oily and it had not very many ingredients. My husband ordered a different hotpot but also felt the same way. There is better Korean food in Vienna. The staff were very abrupt too, which did not help.

This place has maybe 8 tables and some of them are 2 seaters. So really do make sure to get a reservation first. Every time I go there are many parties walking in without one and get turned away (which happened to me the first time). They used to have only 1 chef and 1 waitress, but this year they... More

While the restaurant might be small and the ambient less than inviting, I really like their food. Take the bulgogi - a hearty taste combined with fine nuances. Like other reviewers mentioned: the are almost always Asian guests, it gets pretty full quickly and don't expect a great setting - go there for the food!

Make sure you get yourself a table- because this place fills up quickly. Just wait until the Webster crowd discovers it for lunch... Food is top of the notch Korean, best in Vienna. Décor is nothing special- but you go there for the food. Very affordable lunch specials.

Perhaps purists can find some fault with this place. Still, we visited Korea last year, and this place in my opinion comes very close. Since there were lots of Korean customers, the restaurant must be doing something right. To me the food was amazing. We had a package barbecue dinner. We dined and were very happy. I will definitely come... More

We went there for our son's birthday. The place is very congested and small with small tables. We had grilled pork (like bacon) with vegetables and kimchi. Not so variety and very expensive comparing to the food. It is run by a family of three, so service is very very slow and the owner lady looks very serious and didn't... More

Probably one of the best Bulgogi I have ever tested in Europe and North America! It was a very pleasant surprise considering this restaurant was not as positively rated as the other Korean restaurant (Kim Kocht). Service was prompt and very friendly as this establishment was run by a Korean family. Location was very close to subway as well. Highly... More

Seoul Restaurant is run by a Korean couple. They serve excellent authentic Korean dishes as well as good in preparing Japanese dishes such as sushi and maki. This is a small restaurant located on Prater-strasse in Nestroyplatz (U1) district. The indoor decors are simple and nice. It's clean and tidy. It's popular amongst local residents, especially the Korean and Japanese... More

Staying in Leopoldstadt

Neighbourhood Profile
Leopoldstadt
Welcome to one of Vienna’s trendiest quarters. The second district has witnessed a turbulent ride, from medieval swamp to vibrant Jewish quarter, from pleasure ground for the noble and humble to current hip residence and workplace of Vienna’s creative crowd. Cross the Danube Canal from the city centre and take in life on Taborstrasse with its mix of old townhouses, churches, theatres, discount shops and ethnic restaurants. Head for Augarten via Karmelitermarkt, Leopoldstadt’s trendy marketplace. Baroque Augarten itself hosts a bizarre mix of manicured hedges and flowerbeds in front of a colossal World War II defense tower, the publicly accessible 300-year-old Augarten porcelain manufactory, the palatial boarding school and funky concert hall of the Vienna Boys Choir, and the modern art museum TBA21. At its opposite corner, The Prater not only houses the Giant Ferris Wheel but blends a bustling amusement park with lush woodland, perfect for a bike tour. Further east is the old derby racing ground of Krieau.
