  • Hours

This restaurant introduced Banff to traditional Korean cooking in 1995. Today, two generations of the founding family work alongside classically trained Korean chefs to maintain the cuisine’s authenticity. Internationally, Korean food has soared in popularity due to fresh, healthy dishes that include rice, vegetables, seafood, meats and tofu. Flavours are derived from combinations of sesame oil, soybean paste, soy sauce, garlic and chili peppers.

Atmosphere

At Seoul Country, the dining experience is enhanced by mountain views and tabletop burners used by guests to prepare hot pots and barbecue dishes from supplied ingredients. The wood interior displays Korean wall art depicting cherry blossom trees and mountains, as well as Korean pottery.
