Gecko's has very very mediocre food. There's a Chakraa up in Haebangchong though which serves South Indian food and is fantastic.

If you want great Indian food, there are two absolutely fantastic restaurants in Seoul. They are Wazwan and Taj Palace. They set themselves apart from the other Indian restaurants in town by the fact that the owner and cooks are from Kashmir. They cook all of your favorite curries with recipies from that region of India. The nan bread that you dip into that curry is crispy and light. The sizzling tandori chicken is awesome too. For vegetarians, there are over 25 menu items to choose from. Give these places a shot.

Wazwan & Taj Palace are from the same people. Taj Palace is a little more upscale with more menu items and a little closer to Itaewon station. I still go to Wazwan sometimes because it's small, homey and the nearby mosque adds a nice exotic touch.

To get to either one of them, you get out of Itaewon Station at exit 3, walk past Starbucks to the hip hop clothing store on the corner. Turn right. Walk up the street 1 block and Taj Palace is on your right - second floor.

To get to Wazwan, continue one block more passing the Foreign Food Mart on your left and the excellent English bookstore, What The Book (both worthy stops on your way for cheap phone cards and great books). . Turn left onto the next street. Walk for about 3 minutes. You'll see the mosque on the left. Wazwan near the next corner.

Happy eating and Namaste!

There is a little coffee shop in Acrotower in Anyang called "Topresso". It's on the third floor, and has pretty cheap coffee (I'm pretty sure everything is under 3,000). Their whipped cream doesn't tastes like whipped cream from the US, not from Korea, which makes their Cafe Mocha's quite delicious.

Also, there is blazing-fast wireless coming from somewhere in the building, so if you have a laptop, I'd suggest stopping in. There is only one outlet, but they don't have a problem with me using it.

Have you guys heard of www.Seouleats.com That's where I go to find my restaurants when I come to Seoul. He gets a mix of what's mid-range to high price. I don't mind paying a lot of money for good food, but I get angry if I have to pay a lot and get crap. Here's a list of places by area.

i really havent enjoyed any of the food recommended on the site. Take suji's for example. Its probably the most praised joint on the site and the food is garbage considering the price you pay.
