Seoul House Korean Restaurant

Seoul House Korean Restaurant (map, 1215 West Broadway, Vancouver, BC, phone 604-739-9001) is one of Vancouver’s oldest Korean restaurants, and is still a favorite for many.

The main attraction here is the Korean Barbecue, where you are given raw meat and seafood to cook at the grill at your table. They also offer a buffet on Saturday and Sunday from 12pm to 4pm that is reasonably priced (under $15). During the week there are many a-la-carte items to choose from.

We ordered a really fancy dish with jellyfish (pictured below, around $15), as well as some tofu soup with egg (also pictured below, around $10). There were several tasty condiments/side dishes that were also served with the meal, including the bean sprouts, some cooked potato with a brown sugar sauce, and the famous kim-chi spicy cabbage. A large meal for two was around $21 per person.

There is free underground parking accessible at the alley behind the restaurant, off of Alder street.

    Jamie, you’re the one complaining about how they can’t “speak English”, but I have a hard time understanding what your problem was, based on your post. Here, let me quote what you said just in case you actually don’t understand English 🙂

    “We called this place today at 3pm (Sunday) as w e wanted to come in. The guy said that they only had the normal dinner menu and we had to wait until 5pm!!

    We had parked there, because it was raining we called in to confirm. So we could have come in.”

    So…… *what* was the problem? You called the restaurant while you were in the parking lot? What kind of menu were you expecting besides a ‘normal dinner menu’? If he said they had that menu, why did you have to wait until 5pm? Or did you mean to say they weren’t open at 3pm?

    Seriously Jamie, you should get back to your ESL lessons. Or take grade 5 english classes again, because your review is utter gibberish. 🙂 Restaurant workers are NOT psychic, Jamie. They can’t read your mind. You have to do your own part of communicating well with them, and have patience, especially if it’s a non-White restaurant. But it’s also sad to know people like you, who can’t even write with proper grammar, has the nerve to go around b*itching about how ‘staff can’t speak English’. Your mommy recommends you stick to eating Happy Meals at McDonald’s, Jamiethecrybaby 😉
