Chab-chay, stir-fried korean clear noodle is the worst I have had in many countries, eg. USA, Korea, Thailand. There was no taste or even a piece of meat but costed 20 CHF. Kimji soup is ok. All in all, it will not worth your money paid for. Asian people traveling to Interlaken and thinking of Asian food or Korean food,... More

Very expensive menu, even by Swiss standards, keeping in mind that the ambience, service etc. were just regular in standard and typical of any Swiss eatery.

At a corner next to a Chinese and a Thai restaurant Korean owner is not friendly . The waiters are friendly though Simple layout . We tried Bimbibek which is rice in clay pot . Fish soup is ok . Each dish cost CHF25 can be expensive Just enough to fill your hunger

Three of us travelled there without a reservation on a Saturday evening and easily got a table without having to wait. Most of the other guests were Asian as where most of the waiters. Our Starters were really nice, the leek pancakes and Kimchi pancakes were very tasty though service with too little soy sauce for our liking. The main... More

You can only order set meals for a minimum of TWO portion. It's the same for ALL grill meat. Not much other authentic Korean food choices such ALL grill meats are off the menu unless you want to get TWO portion of the same grill dishes, which would of course be too much and will cost alot. Tap water is... More

Worst experience ever! Very bad service, rude and slow. No tap water for people except Korean. Charge very high. Do not waste your time and money.
