Cilantro Kitchen Songdo

Location: Located across the street from Songdo Central Park. Takes around 10 minutes by car, 30 minutes by bus from Yonsei University International campus(194, Central-ro the sharp centralpark2, 128 A dong).


  • Personally think that it is the best restaurant in Songdo. All the menus are delicious, but I especially recommend “Louisiana Jambalaya” and “Ratatouille Lasagna” which use fresh ingredients and taste absolutely amazing.
  • It has an “open kitchen” where all of the cooking process can be seen. This transparency ensures cleanliness and the hygiene of the restaurant.
  • Servers are friendly and they always kindly explain how to best enjoy the dish.


  • It is a small space, so it can be crowded sometimes. Also, I recommend making a reservation before going there, especially if you are planning to have dinner.
  • Some dishes can be quite pricey. Most of them are around 15,000-20,000 won each.
  • It is located a bit far away from the campus, so I suggest going there when you are visiting Songdo Central Park.
