Reviewed By Tartarugas - Pagudpud, Philippines

My Korean friends took us to this restaurant last weekend and it was simply wonderful. We had a seemingly endless range of courses and dishes and it truly was a dining experience. We cant wait to go again soon. We had the kyungbokkung fresh ribs course meal. Side dishes we cant recall names but all excellent, highly commended

I've ate here a few times and have enjoyed every time. The waiter speaks good English, an food is real Turkish. No strange Korean takes on the food, unlike many other foreign food places in Korea.

Namaskar Samsan

Reviewed By MartinUlsan - Ulsan, South Korea

I have eaten at Namaskar Samsan Store indian restaurant twice. The curries are very small and served in a gravy train. When I tucked in, I found there was hardly any chicken in the curry, it was mostly just sauce. I am a british person so I know my indian food and this place just serves low quality curries. I had a chicken Kaday by the way. I usually eat chicken Bhuna at home but they don't have this on the menu. It is a shame that the food here isn't good enough as the place itself has a nice decour. The waiter who served me was scruffily dressed in just a Tshirt and jeans. I won't go back unless their curries are significantly improved. It's a shame as I work just 5 mins from this restaurant.

Thought I will miss indian food but after asking around I was recommended this restaurant to satisfy my craving for it. Even its about pricey but the food is simply amazing. Must try this restaurant is you are around the area.

Seoga & Cook Ulsan Mugeo Store

Reviewed By Tangledude - London

I'm adding this review since it is a chain and I actually went to the one in Daegu downtown.. But my girlfriend says it is reliable.
The chain has a good reputation
The menu is quite limited and difficult to explain but as a foodie I can confirm the food is good
We had a BBQ pork steak, decent carbonara and several sides and 3 beers for 45000
I think there are only a couple of menu options so maybe check as well, maybe you have to eat some pork and some pasta!!!
I would go again to any of these places in the chain

Sapporo Ulsan

Reviewed By Traveler190511 - United Kingdom

We went to this place on the 3rd floor of a building along the main road to Ilsan beach, not knowing what to expect. It turned out to be a fine dining experience. The restaurant is divided into little private rooms. Ours was for 6 people. They have a dug out so you do not have to sit on the floor. Service was quick, friendly and professional. Dressed in traditional Japanese dress, she spoke a little English. Menu was also in English. We ordered 1 sashimi plate and 2 wagyu beef. The sashimi gave a wow feeling; it was so beautifully prepared on colored cold stones. The beef was cooked in the room on very hot stones, without using oil. Salad, soup and rice were served for free. Together with 3 drinks we paid KRW 100.000 which was cheap for what was offered. We will be back for sure!

Reviewed By tiredbuthappy56 - Viggiano, Italy

this tiny restaurant, I think it actually has only 4 tables each serving 6 , has a tiny menu, but the quality is excellent, flavourful, the cook actually cooks your medium rare fillet and NY strip medium rare and not medium or rare...the variety of wine is not ample but quite good for Ulsan. I have reccomended it and continue to do so.

This is the best Italian available that I have had in the new downtown area of Samsan-dong. We often eat here when we desire some Italian and the best part now is that they offer parking directly in front of the restaurant. You definitely won't be disappointed if you're searching for good Italian food!
