This south african restaurant is a good and genuine find in the big city of Seoul. Think Lamb, bangers and meaty food pies. Limited amount of seats so reservation is recommended.

Best food I've eaten in Seoul, incredible pork sausages and garlic potatoes to die for. Great wine as well. Pays to go early, we arrived at 5.30pm and got the last table. Very grungy, intimate restaurant. Highly, highly recommended!
