Although small, this South African pub is homely and welcoming with wooden decor and South African momentos. The menu has a range of choices for meat-lovers and vegetarians, and a wide range of South African alcohol, including wine, shots and cider. We ordered a steak...More

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!

I always order the same thing when I come here for food. My usual has always been their chicken pot pies and their spinach. They also have stews, steaks, and ribs and they look awesome. A must try if you are in Itaewon!

Great atmosphere friendly staff. Great choice of meats and drinks. Quite crowded so reservation recommended. Real Afrikaans menu. If you don't like meat then go somewhere else.

Some of the places in Itaewon that have gotten really popular seem to have jacked their prices way up accordingly, but not Braai Republic, the prices were very fair and the food was excellent. The owner is a very down to earth guy who gets...More

and its surrounding neighborhoods such as Kyunglidan
and Haebangchong have undergone a major revival to
quickly become one of Seoul’s hottest areas. Here,
trendy international restaurants dot the area
alongside hip lounge bars and some of Seoul’s hottest
