Bangkok Foodie: Seoul Grill, Central Bangna
In these times of economical difficulties, buffets are probably the best bet for a starving soul. But if you have enough of Shabushi and other Sukishi, why not putting a little bit of kimchi into the mix? Let’s try out Seoul Grill, the new Korean BBQ Buffet joint in town.
How does it look like?
The place is really bright and welcoming. The colors of the plates and the different ornaments bring a lively look to the modern and minimal white and wooden setting. The food displays are inviting and appetizing.
How do they treat you?
You may have to wait for a while, though in the newly renovated Central Bangna, the queue is bearable. And the little plus is that the hostess is dressing with a traditional Korean outfit. As for the service inside, it’ s pretty much standard for that kind of places, the staff is really reactive and helpful and the buffet platters are never empty.
How is the food?
If most of the card is similar to other BBQ buffet, with its rolling plates of uncooked goodies, I have really enjoyed the sushi selection and especially the bimbimbap sushi, which was a great example of fusion food. I really loved the BBQ sauce, which had a great flavor and wasn’t too spicy. I was disappointed though by the quality of the meat and especially of the beef which had a weird aftertaste.
329 bahts per person, free for kids.
Its location and the spacious tables are perfect for a family meal. I really liked the sushi selection but I wouldn’t recommend this place if you are looking for great meat cuts. But if, as me, you aren’t a fan of Shabushi but your loved ones are, it is a perfect compromise.
How to go there?
Seoul Grill is situated on the 5th floor of Central Bangna.
