Located on the 50th floor of the FKI (Federation of Korean Industries) building, the Gotgan provides some of the best Korean cuisine in Seoul. It is owned by Lee Jong Guk and headed by Chef Choi Eun Mi who carries the legacy left by his predecessors in providing cuisine cooked using traditional Korean cooking styles and using seasonal ingredients and flavors. There is no public dining hall in the restaurant as you can book only for private dining rooms.

The food at the Gotgan is pretty much tender and composition of the menu is fresh and consists of many different varieties. The staff is courteous and service is impeccable. One of the interesting aspect of the Gotgan is the mesmerizing view it offers of the Han River from the top.

Overall, the dining experience at the Gotgan is awesome even though the price is little bit on the higher side. You can even choose the order of the menu while giving your order so that it suits your eating style and also lingers in your taste buds for some time.
