Where can I get Indian food in South Korea? -- Foreign Restaurant in Itaewon, Seoul.

If you haven't been to the Indian food buffet restaurant in Itaewon go check it out. I've eaten there about four times now and have been very satisfied every time I go.

If you take the subway get on the brown line (#6) and head to Itaewon Station (see below, left of center and slightly down).

If you arrive by taxi go to the main intersection of Itaewon. At the main intersection of Itaewon you will find a place called the Hamilton Hotel (the most popular landmark in Itaewon). Whether you're traveling by taxi or subway you'll begin by facing the Hamilton Hotel and then turn to your right. With the Hamilton Hotel on your left walk about three blocks down the street. You will come to an intersection with a small street that runs uphill. Turn right and walk up the hill until you're about half way up the hill and you will see the restaurant on your left.

One thing that you may run into if you're new to Korea is the 'oh-my-god-I'm-going-to-explode-because-I've-been-eating-mostly-Korean-food-now-for-several-months' phenomenon . . . the food is so good, and so filling, that you'll try to eat like you're back in your home country and suddenly find that you can't.

The staff are friendly and speak fluent English. While you eat you can watch and enjoy Indian music videos playing non-stop on the TVs, and the entire restaurant is decorated with Indian cultural art and objects.

Go check it out.
