  The waiting area
by amambaw

This restaurant was recommended to me by olddude. I'm glad he did, it was fantastic! When you arrive in the waiting area, you are greeted with colorful Thai decor and the smells of delicious, exotic food wafting out from the kitchen. The host meets you with a friendly smile and seats you, and you are brought delicious jasmine tea. The music is good, and the atmosphere in the restaurant is a little formal, but still relaxed. The servers are friendly and speak a little English, so if you're not fluent with Korean, you should be okay. The menu is huge, well over 100 dishes, I'd say. The food is scrumptious and varied.

Favorite Dish: This is a toss up. We had the green chicken curry with eggplant, and it was absolutely fantastic. It may have been topped, however, by the simple dessert: warm coconut milk with sliced bananas. Unbelievable!

Address: Itaewon
Price Comparison: more expensive than average
Directions: The restaurant is about 1-2 blocks from the Itaewon subway stop. Check in the Lonely Planet: Korea for a good map.
