Review of Gammiok a Korean restaurant that was situated in the Longbai area of Shanghai. Possibly still open.

Located in Longbai, the Korea Town area of Shanghai, this restaurant is in a huge building (sign is only in Korean). Whilst the restaurant has some raised private Korean rooms, some of which seem to be non smoking, the overall décor of the place is clean but sterile. The color menu in Korean, Chinese, Japanese and English is limited. This was extenuated by the restaurant being unable to do any BBQ because the equipment has yet to be fitted to the tables. The rice and mixed vegetables (Y35) tasted quite good but came in a metal bowl rather than the expected earthen one. The beef in earthen bowl (Y45) was quite good but was really a soup, which whilst said by the waitress was not suggested in any language on the menu. Haemul pajeon (seafood pancake Y50) was too thick and tasted doughy. With so many good Korean restaurants in the area this place needs to improve.

Unfortunately I cannot find an electronic version of this article.
