All-you-can-eat Sushi in 40 minutes, Gangnam Station


Check out 자연산 회 in Gangnam. It's the best place to get all you can eat sushi in Seoul. Okay, so it's possible that I have not visited any other all-you-can-eat sushi places in Seoul and have absolutely no basis for that statement but will continue to stand by it anyways. 자연산 translates to natural and 회 translates to time. The name helps to explain a little about the place because it's a timed buffet. All the sushi you can pack away in 40 minutes for 17,000 won.

The best place to be seated is around the center table. You get to watch the sushi chefs at work, view all the different kinds of sushi available as they are transported around the conveyor-belt and help yourself to as much as you want. The super-sushi-chef in front of our spot was able to tell us the names of the fish we couldn't distinguish on our own. He also took requests and made sure to keep our favorites coming.


When you're seated the waiter will drop a bill on your table with the time you started eating. There's a clock over the front counter to keep track of your time. Your area is set up with wasabi and soy sauce and the waiters bring miso soup and cold barley tea. They'll signal when your time is nearing to an end by bringing some cold cinnamon tea or fruit. If you go over time for a minute or two they won't forcefully escort you out but you may begin to feel the nudge-nudge eye a little. Once you pass 5 minutes over you'll be charged 1,000 won.


It's open for lunch and dinner, from 11:30am to 2pm and 5pm to 9pm. I've only ever been for lunch or early dinners on weekends and its never been to busy to sit at the center table. I've been told it can get rather busy during the week with all the business men and women coming in for lunch.

Directions: Gangnam Station exit 8. Walk straight for 5 or so minutes and it's on your left. Look for the door above. Inside there are stairs going down into the restaurant.

Dude, if you can possibly post some more precise directions to this place besides 'walk straight for five minutes' that would be amazing. Is there an address that can be used or specific instructions that can be given to a cab driver? Your description sounds terrific and i would love to try the place out. Ended up walking all the way to seoul university of education station without finding anything using the instructions provided.
