PROS - Delicious seafood pancake! We also ordered the kimchee and pork stew hotpot with ramyeon on top - very good, more flavor than I anticipated.

Cannot speak highly enough of this place, was saving my self for another place only to find long queue so despite not being my first choice on the night I was absolutely delighted when the food arrived at this place.
