I have been to this restaurant many times since they open. It seems their quality is getting down and down every year. I went there last Saturday for lunch, and my friend and I order $20 for 4 dishes. The price is really cheap, so we did not expect dishes will be same amount as reqular menu. We order pork Bulgogi, Korean Style Miso Soup, Spicy Rice Cake, Grilled Monk Fish ($2 extra), and Seafood Pancake. First dish is Bulgogi, it served by pork belly instead of pork sirlon showed on menu, and pork belly with skin and pork hair. Korean Miso Soup only served less than half full, and the taste was poor. Grilled fish was good, and spicy rice cake is great and excellent. We only got 3 side dishes.
It is a great idea to have this lunch sampler menu to let people try many flavours, and customers will know what they like to order from regular menu next time. However, it is very disappointed that Kyung Bok Palace did not keep the same quality as it from reqular menu. We complaint the pork bulgogo to the waitress, but she said may be kitchen can not find sirlon pork.
Two weeks ago, I order Kimchi Gigae to go. Once I got home, I found out they did not give me side dishes.
Before I wrote this review, I just saw their inspection report. It looks this restaurant's kitchen is not very well organized. I do not think I will go back again.
