About & FAQ
Seoul is one of the most restaurant crazy towns in the world, but it’s so hard to find where the good restaurants are. ZenKimchi Dining is making it easier by publishing information and quick reviews on restaurants, giving a better window into the constantly evolving Korean dining scene.
In each blog post, we tell you the cuisine, ordering suggestions and rate the restaurants according to ambience, food, service and value. We also invite you, the reader, to rate the restaurants you yourself have visited.
Not only that, you can submit a review yourself by clicking the “Submit a Restaurant Review” button at the top. Fill out the form the best you can and press the “Submit” button. We will look over your submission and, if things check out, post it. If you’re a blogger we link the review to your site, so it’s a great promotional tool.
On the right, restaurants are organized into categories for easy browsing. The search box is at the very, very top of the page to the right. Try it out.
Subscribe to ZenKimchi Dining to keep abreast of the latest restaurants you love and don’t yet know about.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What do the “$” mean?
It’s not an exact science, but the dollar signs show how expensive a restaurant is.
Generally, “$” means cheap (5,000-20,000 won per person), “$$” means moderate (15,000 to 30,000 won per person), and “$$$” means expensive, as in fine dining business account hotel expensive, where you can expect to pay at least 100,000 won per person.
Again, it’s not a science but a general guide to the type of restaurant it is.
Why not KRW (₩) signs?
Dollar signs are more recognizable.
Why don’t you have more restaurant reviews from (insert area here)?
ZenKimchi Dining is crowd sourced. This means that if there aren’t any restaurants reviewed there, no one has submitted a review for them. If your favorite restaurant is not there, just take a few minutes and submit a quickie mini review.
I totally disagree with that review!
That’s why we have an area where you can add your own stars and comments. Balance it out. Join the conversation.
Do restaurants do their own reviews?
It is our policy to not act as a free PR platform for businesses. Restaurants do not pay ZK Dining for reviews. If a submitted review sounds suspicously too good, we ask for more information from the reviewer. We have deleted reviews in the past because they sounded too much like they came from restaurants.
