We indulged in a Sucheong Sura (a.k.a. The King's Dinner). There were 13 courses; very much like a fantastic "tasting menu" of authentic Korean cuisine. We were entertained by traditional Korean musicians and had a thoroughly wonderful experience.

We had a group event. The food was decent. Venue was fantastic. Entertainment was first rate. Great for large gatherings. So near Seoul but so high up and surrounded by greenery.

You need to call to make a reservation. If you are staying at a hotel they can assist you with reservation. There is no shuttle available, only by a car or taxi. The restaurant can call the taxi for you but you might... More
