Reviews

From the Burpple community

BBQ meats were above average. Best in the menu were the stews. My favorite would be the kong biji jiggae which is rarely found in singapore. It is grounded beans mixed with spicy pork broth.
Side dishes provided were good too and service staff were very willing to refill them whenever we request for it.

Tucked away on the third floor of Regent Singapore, Seoul Restaurant is one of Singapore's best kept secrets when it comes to authentic Korean dining, and a favourite among Korean expats. As it turns out, their charcoal-fired barbecue is laud-worthy too. While compact, the a la carte menu of meats is well thought through, with good selections for beef, pork and chicken, including premium options like wagyu-grade Kkot Galbisal (boneless beef short rib, from $34.90) and wagyu-grade Chadolbagi (thinly sliced rare beef brisket, from $17.90). We also like that they have lesser featured seafood options for the grill β€” Godeungeo-gui (mackerel, $16.90) and Jangeo-gui (eel marinated in soy sauce, $39.90). For best value though, the buffet ($34.90 weekday lunch, $39.90 weekday lunch, $59.90 dinner) is your best bet. While some premium meats are off the order chit, the selection is still very decent. Apart from meats, you can also order cooked dishes like toppoki (rice cakes) and a Burpple community favourite β€” kimchijeon (kimchi and squid pancake). The bonus? Burpple Tastemaker Fabian Poon reports that you'll leave the restaurant without the smell of barbecue sticking to you. A big win in our books!

seoul the men meat yesterday and drank hite-ly.
.
$49.90++ charcoal fired dinner buffet at regent hotel. with a choice of 11 standard meats + 20 ala carte items, damn i say is really worthy! hits and misses with the meats (e.g. the bone-in galbi were tough yesterday) but if you stuff yourself silly like the 4 men did yesterday, you get your money back for sure! banchan variety is limited if not sad (was actually planning to whack silly on mung bean sprouts but there was none), thankfully what's there make up with good korean homey quality. the stews are comforting and you really wanna save some space for their fantastic korean pajeon! then wash and cool down your body korean style with a bowl of cold noodle! .

not inclusive in the buffet price is this 160g slab of beef striploin at additional $19 - beautiful marbling but was expecting more flavors, so a dash of salt helps
.
fair value, charcoal fired korean bbq sans the smell after leaving the restaurant? defo warrant another visit to better digest the menu again! thank you @lucaslzm for the recommendation!

Tucked away in a quiet corner of Regent is Seoul Restaurant, my current favourite spot in Singapore for Korean BBQ. Run by a Korean family, they have been around for around 5 years and were previously located at CHIJMES. Given the quality of food I experienced during my numerous visits, I still remain surprised at the lack of coverage for this place. What irks me even more is that when you do a search on "Best places for Korean BBQ in Singapore", you get abysmal results.

Regent? CHIJMES? The Ala Carte Buffet here is surprisingly affordable despite being located in a premium location like Regent. $32.90 for weekday lunches, $37.90 for weekend lunches and $49.90 for dinner everyday. Of course, Seoul Restaurant is comparatively more expensive to most KBBQ places most of us are accustomed to, but for a good reason.

Just take a look at the marbling of this boneless short rib (Galbisal) and you should know what I mean. For the price you are paying, I doubt that you can get unlimited servings of this elsewhere. Other non-marinated meats in the buffet include thinly sliced beef brisket (Chadolbagi), sliced pork jowl steak (Hangjeongsal) and the all time favourite sliced pork belly (Samgyeopsal). They even use a special grade of charcoal, imported from Korea, elevating the taste of the meats.

For those who are bigger fans of marinated meats, Seoul Restaurant has a decent selection of marinated beef, pork and chicken. As far as possible, I never get marinated meats at BBQ buffets because the meats that are marinated are usually of an inferior quality (How else do you think most BBQ places offer you those prices?).

Apart from the meat selection, diners can also order a variety of cooked dishes as part of the buffet. Also included in the buffet, I highly recommend ordering a bowl of chilled buckwheat noodles soup (Mul-naengmyeon) or spicy mixed buckwheat noodles (Bibim-naengmyeon) after you're done with the BBQ to "cool" your body down.

Admittedly, the name of the restaurant doesn't inspire excitement but what they lack in naming creativity, they make up for with the quality of their food. I'd rather better food than a nicer sounding restaurant name, how about you?

Protip: Quality meat will not taste good if you're bad at cooking, so don't be afraid to ask for guidance or help from the staff.

Apparently it's a favourite among Koreans here! They've got ala carte and buffet options, we didn't really waste much time checking out the menu and headed for the buffet option immediately. Incl. GST it's approx $60 per person, not cheap for sure but definitely came out w a satisfied tummy!!
