Lonely Planet review for Sanchon
The atmosphere created by the Buddhist artworks, music and lanterns makes this a very special restaurant. In addition, the owner, Kim Yun-sik – an ex-monk – is an expert on Korean Buddhist temple food, and the vegetarian marinades, glazes and seasonings are unique. The same meal of 20 small courses is served at both lunch and dinner. The prices may not be very Buddhist, but the food and atmosphere are heavenly. Dancers and drummers perform nightly at 8pm.
