    We did not eat, rather got told they were not doing any sushi and sashimi on that day due to the chef being on holiday, was an issue since me and my partner were looking forward for it, there was no sign outside regarding us, only got told when we were about to order, spent 15 minutes of our time. Waitress was really kind and polite despite the bad news

    We had heard so many good things about this place so decided to pay a visit , with it being our first time we were a bit unsure what to order but the amazing staff and one lady in particular helped us to pick some amazing dishes out. We will 100% be back the food is outstanding and so fresh , we did the bbq where you cook your own meats and it’s just such a fun experience.

    Both Japanese and Korean styles were excellent. The staff were very helpful and efficient. Portion size is very generous, too. Just be aware that starters and mains may not come in order, which is common in this type of cuisine.

    I was pleasantly surprised by the portion sizes for the mains and starters. Good value for money. First part of the menu was more the Japanese cuisines and the second half was more the Korean options which I liked. Enjoyed the lunch on a Saturday afternoon. Would go back again. We ordered Korean dumplings (Mandy) and the fried chicken for starters which was delicious. We ended up ordering more chicken with our mains. For mains we got kimchi rice, chicken bibimbap and a seafood udon noodle stir fry. The first two were family faves. We also got one of the kimchi soups which came with free rice. Only recommendation would be getting some radish and kimchi as complementary side dishes would be nice but even without, we thoroughly enjoyed our meal.

    Ordered tempura soft shell crab and they tried to pass of tempura vegetables. Sent the tempura back as it wasn't what we ordered and the waiter touched the food. They then tried to charge us for the tempura when the bill came. Sushi platter looked old and tired and the sizzling beef plate wasn't that warm let alone sizzling.

    A great place to eat in Aberdeen. Stands out from other offerings. This was our 2nd time visiting. 1st time I tried the grill at your table offerings and enjoyed it. Something different. This visit we tried a nice selection of different menu items. Stand outs were the Katsu prawn starter and the nigiri. All was very high quality, well presented and delicious. We also tried the ramen and teriyaki sirloin, but both weren't to our tastes. I was hoping to have some ice cream to finish too, but they didn't have it available. I believe this was also the same case last time I visited. Service was very good. Our server was welcoming, knowledgeable and friendly. My only complaint would be that as time went on, our table wasn't attended to as often, and it was difficult to get the attention of staff. Would've preferred if we had the same level of attention consistently throughout our time there. Still looking forward to returning though to sample the more Korean side of the menu.

    This was our 3rd visit to Seoul, the food was as usual outstanding but the service last night was really poor which was disappointing as it’s usually excellent. Admittedly we were the last customers in the restaurant but at 9.45 a waitress informed us that we had 15 minutes before the restaurant closed (while we were still eating) and then 5 minutes later brought us the bill and waited at the table until we paid it, we were a larger table so it took us a minute to work out how we were splitting it, which was awkward when the waitress was hovering at the side of the table

    We had a wonderful lunch and would highly recommend Seoul. Everything we ordered was SO tasty! The staff were welcoming and our waiter was truly exceptional, friendly and helpful. We can’t wait to go back, next time we will try one of the barbecue tables. The decor is lovely, we felt like we were in Korea or Japan. Really brightened up a dull January day in Aberdeen. Service was quick and good value for money.

    I've been here a few times, so I decided to bring a first date here. The staff were so nice and accommodating, starting idle conversation when we were clearly to nervous to do it ourselves. The food was fantastic, the teokkbokki is out of thus world, especially with cheese. The fried noodles are also amazing, with huge portions and brilliant taste. The price for everything was really good, and I will be back again and again and again.

    First visit to this restaurant but will not be the last. A busy New Years Eve but lots of staff who were attentive and being our first visit even explained the menu to us. Food was good and reasonably priced. Like the way all dishes come out when ready not as starters mains etc do next time will order multiple dishes for the table and we can all share.

    Absolutely incredible. I've been living in Aberdeen for 2 years, and my meal at Seoul was hands down the best I've had. It was my wedding anniversary, and the staff went above and beyond to make our evening special. Great service, and even better food. Couldn't recommend more.
