It was raining and we were tired plus hungry after visiting the Seoul Tower and shopping in the Myeongdong market. We were looking for something to eat but were not willing to try the Korean food. Finally we bought some bananas from the ALL 7 DAYS shop and were returning thinking that we have to return without good food when... More

The place offers good Indian food at a place like Myeong dong where you struggle to find good Indian food.The ambiance of the place is nice and offers variety of options in Indian food which are definitely worth trying .

Right in the middle of the shopping area, this is a perfect restaurant for a meal before wandering around and enjoying the evening bustle. The menu is good and they have a good value lunch menu on weekdays. The staff are friendly and helpful, and were very accommodating of dietary requirements. This would be am excellent place for large groups.

The location of the restaurant is great, and it is easy to find. It can also host big groups, which is a plus. Sadly the service was very poor. The main server was rude from the start. It was a quiet day when we went, and we were the only people in the restaurant. The food was good, and I... More

My vote for the best fine dining Indian restaurant in Seoul. Very close to the Euljiro(1) metro station, the landmark is YWCA building. Food is superb- tawa paneer, tomato soup, tangdi kababs, naan, and Pista kulfi all were great…Lunch for two cost ~KRW 50K, so it’s not very cheap. Went there 3 times in a week and craved for more....

First, the positive aspects: The restaurant has good ambience and a very friendly waiter, may be too friendly. (Sometimes, we prefer privacy.) Now, the not-so-positive aspects: We went to three Indian restaurants in Seoul during our stay: Taj, Durga and Jyoti. For a family of three vegetarians, Taj cost us USD 53, Durga cost us USD 43, and Jyoti cost... 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.
