The food here was not too heavy because we had been eating barbecue almost every meal. They only serve ginseng chicken soup and some others appetisers. My family loves it but it's not my type of food. Worth trying ! :)

It's not boiling hot, cold after a while, soup is tasteless. I went to the other shop on my first day and tried ginseng chicken it was still hot even after I finished the chicken.

This is a long-standing shop in a very touristy location, so it is going to be pricier comparing to other locations. However, it was our last night in Seoul, and we just wanted to have a looked-to-be-decent Samgyetang meal close to our hotel before leaving next morning. We ordered a regular Samgyetang and another one with extra ginseng shreds. The... More

今天由于在明洞停留的时间较短,本来想吃烤肉结果去吃了参鸡汤,在大众点评里找到这家,不是很难找,门口有trip advisor的travelers choice 标志,之前吃过两次参鸡汤,感觉这家店的鸡比较小,肉少,店里客人基本都是中国人,有中文服务,菜一般,价格一般,not my best personal choice.

Lovely visit with great staff that speaks the language, even locals visit the shop for their traditional and long established Samgyetang!

Something I have been longing to try to Korea and when I did, it's superb and delicious. It's a bit pricey but considering the ingredients they put in the soup, you expect the resto price to put a price on it. The chicken is very tender, juicy and perfectly cook. The soup gives you the needed warm during the autumn... More

The black chicken soup was nice, and I found it very tasty. People have to realize that not all food needs to be Uber salty or spicy to be tasty. However, the price is high for what you get.

I have visited this place few times in the last 6 years. It is getting worse and less. Before I could hardly finish the bowl, tonight I had to go and buy snacks, as chickens they are use are very fit and lean. Quality and taste nearly same, but more salt now added in the broth. Also you hardly see... More

Wanted to try the Ginseng chicken while visiting Seoul and this place was quite close to my hotel. Ordered a black chicken ginseng soup (black chicken is tenderer than the white chicken). The chicken is tiny with sticky rice stuffing. Enough for one person, no need to order anything else. I've read some reviews saying people find the chicken soup... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Myeongdong / Namdaemun
Arguably Seoul’s most famous neighbourhood and undoubtedly one of its most popular, Myeongdong takes shopping and eating to new heights, with hundreds of shops, restaurants, and cafes all stacked on top of one another. The rise in popularity of Korean cosmetics, fashion, and more has made this area a must-see for visitors who come and marvel at Myeongdong’s often frenetic pace and energy. Lotte and Shinsaegae’s massive department stores are also popular draws for both Korean and luxury products. The department stores, just like Myeongdong’s streets, are crowded around the clock. Myeongdong’s many street food carts are also immensely popular for their inexpensive and quirky offerings (French-fry-encrusted corn dogs, anyone?). The neighbourhood’s popularity, as well as its close proximity to other popular sights and neighbourhoods, makes it one of Seoul’s most popular places to stay.
