We have eaten a lot of fried chicken since moving here 15 months ago. The little chicken shacks are everywhere and they are all pretty good, but this is the best I have had in Seoul or any where else. O Chicken serves only three...More

This was my favorite restaurant when I lived in Korea. For Korean standards it is pricey, but compared to US eclectic/fine dining it is very reasonable. I loved the ever changing menu, based on seasonal ingredients, the artistic value of the food presentation/plating, and of...More

Typical Korean-style western food. Some unexpected twist but nothing special as indicated by some reviewers. I would advise visitors to go to the sister restaurant O Kitchen Burger instead. In comparison to this one, the O Kitchen Burger is always packed.

Our 5-course meal included some winners, but the main was a pesto spaghetti... store bought pasta. For 60,000 won per person, I'd expect a lot more. I left feeling pretty ripped off. The cucumber sorbet was lovely, though.
